Danganronpa: Another Episode’s Megaphone Does More Than Knockout Monokumas

By Spencer . June 27, 2014 . 3:26am

Spike Chunsoft is taking the Danganronpa series in a different direction with Danganronpa: Another Episode. The PlayStation Vita game follows Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc protagonist Makoto Naegi’s younger sister, Komaru Naegi. She’s armed with a megaphone that she can use to shoot Monokumas.


The megaphone has different properties like shocking enemies and even allowing players to control a Monokuma for a limited amount of time depending on the kanji in the bottom right hand corner. The gun can also be used to activate objects like a camera system and to turn on a car. Toko Fukawa from the first Danganronpa game accompanies Komaru for the adventure and she can hack and slash Monokumas as her alternate personality.


If you’re curious about the Warriors of Hope shown at the end of the trailer read this. Danganronpa: Another Episode comes out on September 25 in Japan.

            How many things get this type of approval also I think this needs to be on NISA’s website.

          • God

            Very few, besides entretainment (movies, books, theater, videogames) i mostly dedicate my time to troll humans, not a lot of time to approve stuff except for my own trollings.
