We absolutely love the high octane, high-stakes gameplay of the Danganronpa series, and so we were very pleased to hear that NIS America announced the Danganronpa Trilogy, which will bring together both Danganronpa 1-2 Reload and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony in one physical collection, set for release in March 2019!
For those who aren’t aware of the series, in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, you enter Hope’s Peak Academy, a prestigious high school for the nation’s “ultimate” students. Things take a twisted turn when Monokuma, a maniacal bear, takes them all prisoner in his deadly game of despair.
Then in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, you join a brand new cast of Ultimates that are mysteriously trapped on Jabberwork Island in their own life-or-death game, but having fun in the sun with this twisted teddy requires more than just a bit of wit to survive.
Finally, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony moves the action to a “psycho-cool” environment with a new cast of 16 characters that find themselves kidnapped and imprisoned within a school. Inside, some will kill, some will die, and some will be punished. So, you have to reimagine what you thought high-stake fast-paced actions was as you investigate twisted murder cases and condemn your new friends to death.
- – The Ultimate Students – From maids to magicians, artists to astronauts, the unwilling contestants of Monokuma’s killing game will have to overcome the odds, as well as each other, if they have any hope of surviving! With so many different talents, agendas, and secrets gathered in one place, this bizarre assortment of “Ultimate” students may be the only ones who can save hope … or destroy it forever!
- – Murder Mysteries – Engage in mind-bending logic puzzles, mini games, and verbal clashes to unveil the truth behind each murder. You may even uncover a few dark mysteries and secrets as you manoeuvre through Monokuma’s game of death and deceit!
- – Lie, Panic, Debate! – Navigate through dynamic, fast-paced trials using quick wits, sound logic, and a bit of faith, and guide your classmates to the right conclusions, Arm yourself with facts and testimonies in the form of Truth Bullets, and break through the lies to reach the final verdict!
