Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair
NIS has revealed that Danganronpa 1&2 Reload will be available on March 14. The PS4 collection bundles both of the PS Vita visual novels Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. The official site has also gone live.
Danganronpa will be returning next year with Danganronpa 1•2 Reload for PS4. The bundle will include the visual novels Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, previously exclusive to PS Vita. In both games, players must survive the maniacal machinations of a killer bear, Monokuma, as they attempt to find who among their fellow students is a murderer, before they become a victim. A collector’s edition was also announced with a 40-page hardcover art book, two-disc soundtrack (16 tracks on disc 1, 11 on disc 2), Monokuma sunglasses and coin, a sticker, and a collector’s box.
NIS has released another round of screenshots from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. The latest set features a little of everything, with shots of dialog, trial mini-games, the rantings of the murderous bear-judge Monokuma, and the saccharine-soaked stuffed rabbit who serves as the students’ teacher, Usami.
New Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair screenshots showcase several new gameplay elements. Hangman’s Gambit, which was in the original, is being revamped for the sequel with linked words becoming increasingly unstable and potentially explosive if not used. Rebuttal Showdown now allows the other characters to interrupt the player’s arguments in one-on-one debates, and an entirely new trial addition, Logic Dive has the player skateboarding through a glowing path as they attempt to stay on the right path during their argument.
NIS has released another set of screenshots from their upcoming investigative visual novel Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. A new cast of characters are being tasked with finding out who amongst them is a murderer before they themselves are found—going by the first game—beat, burned, stabbed, or impaled. The latest shots show some of the conversations that players will be having with their ‘ultimate’ classmates.
NIS has announced that the ultimate students will be getting another shot at freedom on September 2 when Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair launches in stores and online. Players will once again take part in a trial to find who among their classmates is a killer, and the mysterious murderous bear Monokuma will also return to oversee the proceedings. New screenshots were released of the new cast, including the ultimate yakuza and ultimate swordswoman.
