Spike’s take on the courtroom drama genre has rhythm game elements. This teaser trailer for Danganronpa: The Campus Wish and Hopeless High School Senior shows Makto blitzing through puzzles and shooting clues like bullets.
Makoto can find evidence by talking to classmates after a crime is committed. Evidence can be used to point out contradictions similar to Capcom’s Phoenix Wright games, but everything in Danganronpa happens much faster since this PSP game is in real time.
Danganronpa’s blend of mystery, rhythm, and shooting games is quite unique. Even the cast of characters is colorful. The yin-yang bear in the video, Monokuma, is the head of Kibaugame High.
Spike has Danganronpa loaded for release on November 25 in Japan.
