Earlier this week, NIS America confirmed via an online press release that Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair will be coming to North America and Europe this fall. The first game in the series launched earlier this month on the PlayStation Vita, and our contributing writer Garrett Glass wrote a glowing review about it.
The premise of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair revolves around a peaceful class trip to a remote island that quickly turns upside down when Monokuma returns to start his deadly game again. Below is an overview of some of the key features that fans can expect from the game this time around:
Deadly Island Vibes: Murder is the only means of escape when you’re trapped on this island paradise. As your fellow classmates start dropping like coconuts, you’ll need to delve into each murderous incident, forage for clues, and interview your classmates to reveal the opportunity, motive, and means behind each killer case!
Tribal Council: You’ll go head-to-head in all new minigames with the other students during the Class Trial, shooting down their false truths and using your evidence to uncover what really happened. But watch out! If a student is unconvinced, they’ll challenge you to a one-on-one Rebuttal Showdown and force you to defend your argument!
Survival of the Keenest: Match up your evidence with your fellow classmates’ arguments and determine who’s really telling the truth. Once you’ve got a suspect in your sights, turn up that tropical heat in a variety of timing- and reflex-based game systems to reveal the ultimate truth and escape with your life!
After hearing this news, I’m sure that many fans can’t wait to get their hands on the game later this year. While I personally haven’t had an opportunity to try it out yet, I definitely intend to now to see what the fuss is all about.
