Danganronpa Mascot Mono-Bear Spotted In PlayStation Vita Presentation

By Spencer . February 19, 2013 . 1:38am

imageFamitsu picked up on an interesting cameo in last night’s PlayStation Vita webcast. Mono-Bear, the mean mascot character in Danganronpa, pops up at the end of the broadcast. Famitsu asked a representative from Spike Chunsoft if that means anything and got a "no comment" as a response.


Is Spike Chunsoft hinting at a Danganronpa game for Vita? The  word shooting  series was designed for PSP and we haven’t seen a new game since the tropical-themed Super Danganronpa 2 which came out in 2012.

    I’m pretty surprised that these games never got localized.

    • Aksys has been on a VN localization tear recently. Well…two games, both otome titles, but still – that’s an even MORE niche market than what Dangan Ronpa has.

      I really hope it’s in the cards from them.

      • I remember having a word with XSeed about Danganronpa a long while back, they said someone was interested, but who knows. Maybe Aksys would jump on the despair wagon~

    • JazzyMan123

      Well, there is fan-translation in the works if you’re interested.

      He’s feeding on our tears. :,(

  • Just a small correction, but Super Dangan Ronpa 2 came out in Summer 2012, not 2011.

    Or. The most logical, obvious explanation that I think anyone with familiarity with the series should have drawn- it was just Monobear popping up uninvited in the stream and now every Sony executive is too freaked out and pretend they just didn’t see him. Hell, that’s sure what I would have done if I saw him anywhere.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Mono-Bear is going to make all Vita owner happy and also scared lol.^_^

  • MikeTxn

    I HOPE it’s a new game. I need my dosis of DESPAIR.

    • So what the hell is this?

      • VN series. The 1st game has Monobear traps several talented HS students in Hope Peak Academyl and forces them to kill each other off. There a translated LP of the game and its sequel in SA Forums.

  • i never heard about this mono-bear before! but i am in love :3

    • He basically the mascot for the Danganronpa series. There a translation LP of it at SA Forums by orenoren and a fan trabslation in the works.

    I’d love a new one, but I’d rather have the first two games translated… I mean i’ve already “read” DR1, and I’m “reading” DR2, but I still want to play ’em… ;__;

  • I forsee some heavy amounts of despair in the near future, hupupupu~ ;3c

  • Maia Kasoya

    I’ve been seeing this bear everywhere lately.
