Danganronpa: Another Episode Features More Characters From The First Two Games

By Sato . June 23, 2014 . 7:29pm


Danganronpa: Another Episode takes place between the first two Danganronpa games, but seeing Makoto Naegi’s sister as the protagonist might be confusing after having played the first game. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine gives us a little more insight on the upcoming game. (Thanks, Hokanko-Alt.)


Makoto Naegi’s sister Komaru stars alongside Toko Fukawa, in Danganronpa: Another Episode. Komaru ran away from Monokuma who was assaulting her (perhaps from what we saw in the “clip” in the first game,) but it looks like she’ll be back in action against the menacing bear.



For the most part of the game, you’ll play as Komaru, who uses a megaphone-like hacking gun to fight off the many Monokuma clones. According to the magazine report, when Fukawa does “this and that,” the game switches off to her becoming a playable character.


In addition to having other few characters from the first two Danganronpa games, there’s also a group of kids called the Monokuma Kids who go around wearing Monokuma masks while murdering adults. They seem to have different roles of Hero, Warrior, Priest, Sage, and Mage.


For the most part, you’ll still fight Monokumas as the main enemies, and there are about ten different types of them, this time around.


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

    • ShinNeoGranzon

      A mere megaphone is not enough. I’ll need either a heavy machine gun or a rocket launcher to take care of these Monokumas.

    • AkuLord3

      Getting spoiled and knowing things i shouldn’t…the ultimate DESPAIR!

    • Lol isn’t your avatar a spoiler in of itself?

      • Mirai

        And what does my picture spoil exactly? By you pointing out it is a spoiler makes it worse than the picture itself is.

        • Brandonmkii

          Like, if somebody was playing through 1 and saw your avatar, they’d be pretty spoiled if they were curious. Heck, something akin to your avatar is what spoiled it for me.

          • KidArk

            Same, I was like she never had those hairpins… shit…

          • God

            Dem hairpins, you can feel their despair from a mile away!

      It takes place a year and half after the Despair blahblahblah thing happened so…..

      But this also begs the qtn of why Fukawa is there as well.

      • Jason Ryer

        Casue the video was fake Monkuma plants fake evidence all the time.? Remember the trial.

  • I erally can’t wait for this just waiting for the pre-order on amiami to come up

  • DyLaN

    Kotoko Utsugi (voiced by Kazusa Aranami)
    Tarou Enei (voiced by Sumire Uesaka)
    Nagisa Shingetsu (voiced by Mariya Ise)
