Meet The New Kumas In Danganronpa: Another Episode

On top of an army of Monokumas, Danganronpa: Another Episode has two more bears in the PlayStation Vita game.

Kurokuma on the left is the advisor to the villainous Warriors of Hope. One unique trait is he talks at lightning speed and can use "manner mode" to control the Warriors of Hope. Shirokuma on the right is an idol for the adults. This bear stays in a secret base and is a member of the Resistance.


Danganronpa: Another Episode follows Komaru Naegi, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc protagonist Makoto Naegi’s younger sister, and Toko Fukawa. Makoto uses a megaphone and different words to attack Monokumas. Their red left eye is a weak spot and if you hit it the game will say "nice shot" plus you’ll deal more damage.


Danganronpa: Another Episode comes out on September 25 for PlayStation Vita in Japan.

    Hold up. “Makoto” uses a Megaphone?

    Ah, the late night typos, truly the pride and joy of Siliconera

  • That Kurokuma though. He be def. pimpin’ in this game, haha

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    That Kurokuma really look’s pimpin’ in that hat.

  • Wait, one of the Monokumas is working for the resistance?
    Uh… Doesn’t that sound… like a BAD scenario to anyone, or is that just me.

    Anyways, Kumokuma is clearly the King of Rap, while Shirokuma looks suspiciously like a mix between Skrillex and Deadmau5.

      Well, in 2 you have a Monobunny that is on the students side.

      • But that’s understandable–rabbits are WAY friendlier than bears!

          It’s probably a monokuma that someone reworked.
          Since they are robots it wouldn’t be impossible to rewire them.

  • Here’s hoping this game is decent; I’d like to see it localized. The gameplay looks terrible, though.

    • Amagidyne

      If Super Dangan Ronpa 2 sells well in the west when it’s released, we could be in with a chance. I mean, the first one sold well enough that 2 was announced almost immediately.

      I think that fact that it’s so different in gameplay from the main games might make it a bit more risky for a company to localize though (though the main games are pretty quirky too so it might not be an issue), guess we’ll have to wait and see if 2 sells well enough for this one to get consideration.

      • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

        The concept just seems bizarre. A game series that’s known for its rich character interaction and brain teasing whodunit courtroom intrigue turned into a first person shooter? Were they out of mystery ideas or something?
