Danganronpa Teaser Video Breaks Out

By Spencer . August 5, 2010 . 1:28pm

Spike’s take on the courtroom drama genre has rhythm game elements. This teaser trailer for Danganronpa: The Campus Wish and Hopeless High School Senior shows Makto blitzing through puzzles and shooting clues like bullets.


Makoto can find evidence by talking to classmates after a crime is committed. Evidence can be used to point out contradictions similar to Capcom’s Phoenix Wright games, but everything in Danganronpa happens much faster since this PSP game is in real time.



Danganronpa’s blend of mystery, rhythm, and shooting games is quite unique. Even the cast of characters is colorful. The yin-yang bear in the video, Monokuma, is the head of Kibaugame High.


Spike has Danganronpa loaded for release on November 25 in Japan.

    This better be translated (Hopefully by Atlus?)

      People need to start buying their games in number then.

      Just saying.

        Kenka Banchou Baddass Rumble probably woulda never come here if there wasn’t a significant request for it on the Atlus forums so if you want this game here, start by going there

    • I definitely got a Persona feel from the trailer, I could easily see Atlus bringing this over.

  • I love the mystery game genre, but it seems like a much more harder genre to localize correctly. I hope this gets picked up (by a good company!)

    This looks like it’ll be fun, I hope it meets my expectations!
