Danganronpa: Another Episode is set between Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, where players assume the role of Komaru Naegi, the sister of the protagonist from the first game. A new trailer shows us some of the game’s action.

 

Unlike the other games in the series, Dangrandonpa: Another Episode is a third-person shooter where Komaru shoots down Monokuma clones using her key word-shooting megaphone gun.

 

Toko Fukawa, and her homicidal maniac split personality named “Genocide Jack” (or Genocider Sho in Japanese) will help Komaru survive through the army of the man-eating Monokuma clones.

 

The trailer ends with a look at a silhouette of what appears to be other characters who’ll be part of the game.

 

Danganronpa: Another Episode is currently in development for PlayStation Vita. NIS America will bring Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair to the West in September.

    Dangrandonpa

    typo?

    • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

      At this point, it’s hard to tell when it’s an actual typo or just Benedict Cumberbatch-style nonsense

  • Postnjam

    I-I don’t understand….was this a joke between the developers that somehow developed into a proper game? What next? A Phoenix Wright game where Maya plays Tetris?

    • AkuLord3

      Was that really the best you could think of? come on How could Phoenix and Maya fight giant kaijus with a battle lawyer robot! I’d play that 83

  • Namuro

    While I feel sorry for Komaru-chan, to be stuck in such a situation. I just can’t get enough of her distressed expression!

    …I’m not weird… Shut up.

    • Hyosuke575

      No worries, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s even better that the Monokuma clones are trying to eat her, and not just simply murder her.

      Nope, not weird at all.

    • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

      She looks so much like her brother, which obviously isn’t Shocking News–but that distressed look, I have to laugh at how exactly it looks like Makoto’s “freaking out” expression.

  • Samken

    Spike is not particularly know for good gameplay in their games, but i’m a fan of DanganRonpa. I’ll be cautiously optimistic about this.

    • AkuLord3

      Didn’t know, they did J Stars Vs…that’s good and fun. You’re right though they’re not too know for doing action games but who knows.

      • jinkusiraga

        They got the DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi and Raging Blast series down pretty well.

  • http://hanzoadam.tumblr.com/ Hanzoadam

    I’ve been waiting for news on this as I’m really keen to get a pre-order down for this

  • Anesia Hunter

    makes me almost miss the sakura’s revenge trailor.

  • Limbless

    Ironic that Sakura Warriors, as advertised with tongue in cheek in one of the dreams in Danganronpa, isn’t starring her.

    • Thefunyarinpa(Hikari)

      She should be an unlockable secret character.

  • Zack

    There’s a typo in the first paragraph, under the video. It’s not Dangrandonpa!

  • Yagami Mao

    look interesting.

  • DragKudo

    I’ve been waiting for this. Hope she doesn’t die. Genocide Sho you S.O.B you. :3

  • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

    If Monokuma has an army…

    We have a Teddie.

  • Mirai

    For the sake of those who have yet to play SDR2, all I’ll say here is I’m really looking forward to this game and hopefully it will be localised.

  • Aristides

    lol this game looks like a lot of fun, I want this X3

  • Kornelious

    Ok….well I didn’t see this coming, though this could actually be a Danganronpa I can get into…….Not because it’s a shooter but because you can SEE who your using….Don’ judge me…..

  • Learii

    shooting game? I guess I won’t be able to play then =(

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    “a third-person shooter where Komaru shoots down Monokuma clones using her key word-shooting megaphone gun.”

    See, now this is the sort of ingenuity I like to see in video games.
    Whoever is running the Dangan Ronpa series… MAD PROPS.

  • Yan Zhao

    lol wut. This is random. Is that Sakura beat-em up version coming next?

  • Nirvanes

    Watched the anime after playing Zero Escape craving for more good narrative… I was very very disappointed with the super cliché characters. Didn’t felt a lot of depth in it’s story. I know the game is a lot better experience, but the core story I think it’s still a little weak for what I’ve expected I guess.

  • alixraen

    I’m so over Toko. She needs to know despair! She needs to DIE! >:3

    In all seriousness this game looks amazing though, the only thing that irks me a tad is the over-the-shoulder view, but that’s something I can get used to.

  • revenent hell

    I will instantly buy this when/if localized.
    Though I kind of wonder how the gameplay will be, in the trailer it looks kind of simple but that’s not really a bad thing either I suppose.

  • Darkwing7

    Though i’m saddened they switched from 1st person VN to a third person shooter. I think it holds a lot of potential o-o. I’m really looking forward to this
