Kenka Bancho Creators Bring You A High Speed Action Game Set In A High School

By Spencer . August 3, 2010 . 7:37pm

imageSpike is giving the mystery genre a jolt in Japan with Danganronpa.


Danganronpa: The Campus’ Wish and Hopeless High School Senior has high speed talking battles. Famitsu mentions shooter elements (!?) and machine gun-like logic fights where you have to spot inconsistencies in logic. Danganronpa has 2.5D motion graphics.


This upcoming PSP game is quite different from Spike’s usual works. They’re known in Japan for the Kenka Bancho and Fire Pro Wrestling games plus publishing Western titles like Tomb Raider and Bioshock.

  • Hmm… This sounds interesting. I’m fond of the mystery genre, but I have no idea where they’re going to go with this. Can’t wait to hear more news about it!

    I bought Kenka Bancho for my brother, but this looks like more my kind of game.
    About the machine gun style logic battles, Umineko anyone?

  • Hmm… Sounds a really interesting concept but the images seem to suggest these logic battles are little more than QTEs or rhythm action segments. Hope there’s more to it than that.

    Also, anyone else getting ads appear actually inside the comment box? Forced me to refresh to post
