NIS has announced another title bound for PS Vita in 2014, DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Originally released in 2010 for PSP, the investigative mystery title put players in Hope’s Peak Academy, a prestigious school turned into a violent prison. As Makoto Naegi, players must discover the identity of a murderous bear named Monokuma, who has trapped the students and promised freedom to those who can murder a classmate without getting caught. Monokuma serves as the judge and jury in mock trials in which Makato must confront students with the evidence he gathered to discover the guilty party behind the latest murder.
More good news for Tales fans today. Following last month’s announcement that Tales of Symphonia Chronicles will be launching next year in North America, Namco Bandai has revealed that they will also be localizing and publishing Tales of Xillia 2. Tales of Xillia is just over a month out, and its sequel is scheduled to launch on our side of the pond next year. The follow-up takes place a year after Tales of Xillia, with players helping aspiring cook Ludger Kresnik make his way through a dangerous journey alongside a new acquaintance, Elle Marta. Choice will be a major factor in the game, with players making key choices that will decide which path Ludger takes in a branching storyline.
Apogee Software has reached deep into their archives and released the source code for the nearly 20-year-old first-person shooter Blake Stone: Planet Strike.

The source code can be downloaded in full here, but be warned: it’s just over 300kb.
NIS will be bringing some dungeon-crawling action to the PS Vita next year with Demon Gaze. The Experience, Inc.-developed title will feature the journey of Oz, a young adventurer who awakes to find himself in the cursed, labyrinth-filled land of Misred. Setting out in this strange new land, Oz must track down artifacts, recruit allies, and uncover (sweet) loot in an RPG sporting five different races, eight classes, and subclass support.
