Danganronpa: Another Episode’s Heroine Revealed

By Sato . September 24, 2013 . 6:37pm


Earlier this month during the PlayStation press conference, Spike Chunsoft revealed Dangranronpa: Another Episode, an action title that takes place between Danganronpa 1 and 2. In a preview for this week’s Famitsu magazine, it has been revealed that the protagonist is in fact the sister of the first Danganronpa hero.



While not much is known about the heroine of Danganronpa: Another Episode, Famitsu reveals that her name is Komaru Naegi, and that she is also the younger sister of the first Danganronpa protagonist Makoto Naegi.


Additionally, the developers mention the existence of one more mystery female character, who’ll have a role in the upcoming action game. More information regarding Komaru Naegi and the mystery character will be revealed soon. Siliconera spoke to Danganronpa producer Yoshinori Terasawa and will have more to share about the series later this week.


Danganronpa: Another Episode is currently in development for PlayStation Vita.

    If it wasn’t for the amazing lineup of indie games coming to Vita, the DanganRonpa series is probably the only other reason why I would keep the damn thing.

    I hope Trigger Happy Havoc: DanganRonpa does well enough for NISA so they are willing to localize the other titles in the series.

      hyper light drifter, pavillion, hotline miami 2, minecraft, terraria, starbound, dustforce, forgotten memories, project phoenix, shantae: half genie hero, volume, metrico, hohokum, airship Q, rogue legacy, la mulana and more… are coming to ps vita

      i mean this are indie games that most people tend to overlook and some immature gamers trash it, but most of these games offer more fun and innovative gameplays ^_^

      i love AAA games, JP games and also indie games ^_^

      • Xaltmas

        The people who write off indie games are definitely going to miss out on some of the most amazing gaming experiences out there.

        Every single title you listed is a day one purchase from me, and I hope Airship Q somehow makes it to the west.

    • DyLaN

      Vita does have games, but most of it are VNs and JRPG that is not localized.

  • X14

    Slightly disappointed it’s not Mukuro, but Naegi jr should be fun too.
    I wonder if she’s going to have a crazy title too?
    Maybe Super Duper Highschool Brocon?

    • Demerson

      There’s no duper. It’s just Super High School Level

      Heard a rumor they’re just changing it to Ultimaye in NISA’s translation, I really hope that’s false.

  • Raze

    Maybe that other girl is Fukawa?

  • Pdugna

    Man i really need to play episode 2 or watch a LP or something thing is still not translated yet >.< i hate wikis also

  • That girl next to Komaru with the messy purple hair feels strikingly familiar..~
    Also Komaru herself is very interesting, can’t wait to see how this is all working~

    • Guest

      It’s Fukawa. This article doesn’t mention it but Fukawa/Syo is a playable character ; she’s the other despair girl

  • Onizuka Gio Hikari

    Can’t wait! I was replaying Dangan Ronpa 1 today and I am so in love with this series can’t wait to get 1.2 reload then this and hopefully it will all sell well so we can get 3!!!!! HYYYYPPPE

    • sherimae1324

      actually danganronpa 3 is already been teased at the end of the trailer for this game ^_^

      watch it and its says at the end ” also 3″

  • bu bu bu bu

  • RichyGaming

    NAEGI’S LITTLE SISTER? Poor thing, dood…

  • Serge

    I hope that Danganronpa 3 comes out to PSV and 3DS. I mean, they did the same thing with Zero Escape, so why not?

    • Detrimont

      the 2.5D(meanign the paper cutout character portraights) would look great on the 3ds with 3d turned on

  • Luis Camargo

    Hopefully, they will localize all danganronpa games to the US.

    Btw, does anyone know if the japanese version of Danganronpa Reload will be fully voice-acted ? I might import it to play Dangan2

  • Detrimont

    people figured this out after the teaser

  • leingod

    Danganronpa is crazy. We need that crazy localized! XD

  • DyLaN

    Well, GS is not interested in girls so Komaru have one less thing to worry about XD And since when did Komaru have an ahoge again? Did she grow it in memory of Naegi?

    So I assume it take place in the SPOILERmonoworldSPOILER? Anyway I’m curious how will the plot turn out and how many DR1/2 character is returning.

  • vileBrenman

    Well at least we know she is alive. After being shown “that” clip by monokuma in danganronpa.

    • Juan Pablo Fernandez

      yup, she is, i wonder what happened to naegi parent’s too, maybe this game will answer that

  • ZekeFreek

    Wait, I thought she was dead? Or was that just another one of Monobear’s lies?
