During a NIS America press event, NIS America announced they will bring over the next installment in the Danganronpa series to the West. Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls takes place between Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Players will find out what happened to Komaru Naegi, Makoto’s younger sister, who has been trapped inside a mysterious apartment for over a year.
Byakuya Togami heads to Towa City to rescue her where an army of Monokumas foils the plot. Now it’s up to Toko Fukawa and Komaru to work together and escape a group of children called the Warriors of Hope. Unlike the other two Danganronpa titles, Danganronpa Another Episode is a third person shooter where you use a hacking gun developed by Future Foundation to blast Monokumas and interact with objects.
The English version of Danganronpa Another Episode is slated for release in North America and Europe this fall.
