Rumor: New Danganronpa Game Teased With Characters From The Two PSP Games

By Spencer . June 18, 2013 . 1:22am

image Spike Chunsoft is doing something with Danganronpa, a video game series where you need rapid fire wit to solve crimes in a high school where murder is on the syllabus. Danganronpa will air as an anime series and it appears we’ll see a new Danganronpa video game too.


A leak from a video game magazine has a picture of characters from Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and The High School Students of Despair and the sequel Super Danganronpa 2: Farewell Despair Academy standing with MonoBear and Monomi. No details about platforms, but the other two Danganronpa titles were for PSP. Also, MonoBear made a cameo in a PlayStation Vita presentation, so our guess is the next Danganronpa game will be a Vita title.

    This is awesome news! I agree a vita version is most likely. All the better since it’s region free, actually. Hope there’s a collector’s edition too since I got the CE for the first two PSP games.

  • I couldn’t see the leaked image on that website, is there a link for it?

  • What BS that we’ll never see these games come Stateside.

    • DyLaN

      If it makes you feel better, a english patch for the 1st game is being worked on.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        Funnily enough, in the time it takes for the first game’s english patch to get done, one good learn JP and play it themselves.

      • Not good enough. I shouldn’t have to pirate it to play it in English. :(

  • DyLaN

    HYPED. I don’t mind a Vita port of both games or a Vita sequel.

  • Junko Enoshima

    let this be trueeeee and localize all the fricking games sometime this century

  • gamefreak86

    Just heard about this from a friend. WTH! Why has no one localized? All these VN games that just sound trippy and interesting have yet to reach a broader audience. Pretty lame guess ill have to get an old PSP and hack it to download fan translations. Might as well ditch the vita while I’m at it.

  • Raze

    I’ll take this…
    Along with Yahari Ore ga Iru….

  • Renaldi Saputra

    seems I’ll try watching the anime when comes out

  • Jontaku

    This will be a must buy if it ever gets localised

  • komiko12

    Dunno how they would do that when

    the main antagonist and many of the characters died in the first two games are dead

    Unless its a prequel

    • They could just put the 2 games fully voiced for vita or something, also, is not like -you know who- cant somehow come back, dangan 2 proved it, tho a third time would be kinda repetitive imo.

      Also, they dont really specify who are those characters that appeared in the magazine.

      • komiko12

        I guess when they say the word “new” I usually assume that it will be something … new.

        • You know japan, they put a new subtittle to an already existing game, add some maps dungeons, and is already ALL NEW!! SUGOI DESUYO!

    • Mirai

      The mastermind will always be the same person and they’ll make any excuse they can to bring them back after all dagan ronpa just wouldn’t be dangan ronpa without them

  • Göran Isacson

    Sooo… Dangan Ronpa Super Highschool Level Smash Stars, anyone? Sakura is a grappler, Yamada is the zoner who throws out a bunch of otaku stuff as projectile attacks, Monobear is the SNK-style super boss… we might have something here!

    • supervamp

      Ohhh a fighter or rpg would be cool.

      • Göran Isacson

        Yeah, though I wonder if a fighter wouldn’t be the better choice. Make it a silly Smash Bros style fighter to offset all the terror and despair, because I can’t think of any actual enemies that could be put into an RPG that the party could grind.

  • Mirai

    Considering this game’s gameplay is similar to Ace Attorney and that gets localised then why not this game as well? even if its just a PSN download i’d gladly buy it.

  • AdhesiveBoy

    Just when I want to go 3DS, something cool pops up on Vita…

    • jujubee88

      What’s so cool about this series? I’m kind of ignorant and never played it on PSP. :3

      • AdhesiveBoy

        It’s a crazy murder mystery, great if you like visual novels or anime dramas.

  • I’ll never not be proud of how far DR has come… I just wish it would go a little farther to the west *ehem*. I’m excited to see what will happen!
