Next Danganronpa Game Launching This September

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

NIS America has revealed that the next game in the Danganronpa series, called Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, will be coming to the USA this September.

While this game takes place in between the events of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, it will actually feature a stark shift in gameplay from visual novel to action adventure. Here’s the synopsis:

“Komaru Naegi, little sister to Makoto Naegi, has been imprisoned inside a mysterious apartment for over a year. One day, she is rescued by Byakuya Togami of Future Foundation, but the rescue is derailed by a sudden attack of hundreds of Monokumas.

Komaru soon discovers that the city has been taken over by a group of children calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children’s Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated. Komaru teams up with Toko Fukawa to try to survive the rampaging Monokumas, escape the crafty Monokuma Kids, and uncover the secrets of the city.”

Even though this game will play much differently, that plot synopsis alone sounds just as amazingly crazy as the other two games in the series and I can’t wait to play it. Check out the Welcome to Despair trailer for the game below.
