Danganronpa Team Is Thinking About Making Danganronpa 3

By Spencer . February 25, 2014 . 3:10am


NIS America have the first two games in the Danganronpa series locked for North America. Spike Chunsoft is also developing a brand new Danganronpa game and Danganronpa: Another Episode has a different take on word bullets. Early footage from the Vita game showed a character using microphone to fire words at Monokumas.


Danganronpa: Another Episode takes place between Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Remember Makoto Naegi, the protagonist in Trigger Happy Havoc? His sister is the main character in Another Episode.


"We originally thought about creating a new character, but since it takes place between the first and second game, we thought it would be easier to enter this world if the player already had a character they were at least a little fond of," producer Yoshinori Terasawa explained to Siliconera. "Also, we thought that just by having Makoto’s sister as the main character, that would naturally create some questions and expectations in the player’s mind."


Siliconera followed up and asked Terasawa if the team has started work on a proper sequel, a third Danganronpa game.


Terasawa replied, "We are absolutely thinking about making a third Danganronpa, but we haven’t decided on anything specific just yet. I’m still talking with the rest of our staff about what we could do. I don’t know when we might be able to actually announce anything, so please wait patiently for that!"

    what i hope the most is danganronpa 3 is Vita exclusive like the spin-off.

    • Pdugna

      Should be it was hinted at the Sony press event that another episode was announced at

  • DAT Bird From DAT Cage

    How about Conception 3
    Stop spreading despair

    Spread some love instead

    • natchu96

      Perhaps Monokuma runs the company.

    • TheExile285

      Probably because the Danganronpa games sell way more than Conception games.

    • Slickyslacker

      Because the Conception duology isn’t even that remarkable :/

  • Pyrofrost

    Hopefully this comes to pass. Even if it isn’t a DanganRonpa 3; but a new IP in the style of DanganRonpa or Zero Escape, I will support it.

  • Mirai

    I hope DR3 is a continuation of the series like SDR2 was for DR1, as for me there are still some questions that need to be answered.

    • MaximDualBlade

      like what?

      • Mirai

        I would rather not talk about it here as there are lots of people who have yet to play SDR2 and I don’t want to spoil anything. And for those who have played SDR2 I’m sure they have a rough idea on what I’m referring to.

        • MaximDualBlade

          oooh ok

        • God

          Just finished Danganronpa 2 (came here when i googled Danganronpa 3) and i still have no idea what exactly are you talking about…

    • Alex Cook

      plus both games were kinda spoiled for me so I want to go through one without having any spoilers

  • xe7en

    YES PLEASE! Would be awesome if we don’t have to wait long from the west if ever this get released. :3

  • Hoping they do make a new game! DR is a very interesting series overall, and I’d like to see how they’d continue.

    Hopefully DR1’s success (and hopefully SDR2’s success) will mean that we’ll definitely get Another Episode down the line…

    • AkuLord3

      Well seeing how NIS America just localized SDR2 as soon as the first game hit here, we might…there’s some hope

  • GDI

    Having just completed Danganronpa, it’s good, but I find the VLR series way better. Or maybe I just prefer escape the room puzzles.

    For having arguments an Ace Attorney straightforward presentation is better. It was just so frustrating having to time touching the back panel (to clear the pink distraction phrases) with launching a word bullet.

    I dunno, it just kinda felt mish-mashy. It’s a shame that the Zero Escape series are in the red; Danganronpa should have spread some greenbacks towards the other visual novel series.

    • Thrasher429

      Personally I never even used the back touch panel to do that I just pressed X before I fired the word bullet since I’m already aimed over the distraction phase for it to get in the way most of the time.

  • TheExile285

    I’d love to see them make a VN DR for Vita. I hope they keep the 2D style. I like it a lot more than the 3D model style they’ve done with other games.

    I’m also really interested in Another Episode.

  • Learii

    I buy them all

  • Slickyslacker

    Rejoice, tumblr.

  • lordsofskulls

    *Shut Up and Take My Money GIF.* + Localize it already XD love this series… it everything my dark humor mind needs ;3 it scratches that itch in naughty kind of a way ;3

  • artemisthemp

    Spike Chunsoft is the publisher/developer of Zero Escape right?

    • AkuLord3


  • AkiraScare

    Love that sadistic bear….
    So am i a masochist?!!! (0_0)

  • Revolver Jesus Super Pimp

    Loved the first one, got my eye on the second one, so a third would be gladly appreciated.

  • Alex Webber

    All this waiting is putting me in despair!
