Danganronpa Brings Murder Mystery And Word Battles To iOS

By Spencer . August 20, 2012 . 2:07pm

dang3Spike Chunsoft just released a port of the PSP murder mystery game Danganronpa for iOS. The first chapter is a free download. Chapters 2-6 cost 500 yen ($6) each or you can buy all six for 2,000 yen ($25).


Danganronpa for iOS has been upgraded with Retina display support, an image gallery, and touch screen controls. Too bad Spike Chunsoft didn’t add an English localization in.


Danganronpa is compatible with iPhone and iPad devices. You can purchase Danganronpa here.

  • So uh… people say iOS is the future… but is the platform localization active?

      Guess not. We got VNs on the app store, but I think only KiraKira has an official eng ver (Steins;Gate has a fan patch that uses the fan translation of the PC ver., and I’m still waiting on Corpse Party, though I might just get that one on PSN since it’s already there and all).

    It’s a shame translated VNs don’t seem to have taken off on iOS, seems like a really good fit. I’ll just go back to praying for localization.

      Sadly, it is not really for no one trying. Mangagamer dabbled with a few all ages titles and there are some indie games. I know it is where a lot of the ren’py folks want to go. Tablets have made things a little better, but I do think text heavy titles on smaller telephone screens have been a distraction. That the few JP VNs beyond MGs have suffered in both general quality and engrishy translations can not have helped, either.

  • This needs an English localization.

    If anyone wants to check the game out but doesn’t know Japanese, there’s an excellent LP of it going on: http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3447397

    I just spent the last week or so catching up and now I’m really sad that this wasn’t able to be released here…

      This. A thousand times this. Even if this game doesn’t seem like your cup of tea, you
      definitely still should check out the Let’s Play to at LEAST the end the first chapter because this game is beyond extraordinary. 

      • Hopefully the orenoren translation can at least gv this game enough hype to get localize, tht or this iOS ver.

        One can hope ryte?

        -On latest update SPOILERZ ALERT-

        Tht gotta be the most d*ck-ish move made by Monobear YET.
