Earlier today, we reported a rumor regarding a possible new Danganronpa game after a leak from a video game magazine teased characters from the PSP titles.
It turns out that Danganronpa is indeed coming to the PlayStation Vita, but not as a new game. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine reveals that Danganronpa 1 & 2 Reload is in development for the device.
That’s Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and the High School Students of Despair along with the sequel, Super Danganronpa 2: Farewell Despair Academy.
We’re still waiting on more details, but as for now we know that the Island Mode that was in Super Danganronpa 2 is now called School Mode and that Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and the High School Students of Despair will be getting a higher resolution treatment for the PlayStation Vita.
Update: Danganronpa 1 & 2 Reload will also utilize the PlayStation Vita’s touch screen and rear multi-touch pad. The difficulty of the Class Trials have also been adjusted to be easier than it was previously. The scripts for the dating parts have also been rewritten.
Additionally, a demo version for the first part, Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and the High School Students of Despair will also be released in the near future.
