NIS America has dropped some information about the upcoming Vita mystery adventure game, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. It will release in North America on Sept 2 and in Europe on Sept 5 (happy birthday to me). The original Danganronpa was a nice surprise when it came out earlier this year, and as such I'm excited for Monokuma's (the crazy bear) return. For those who missed out on the original, I recommend picking it up as it's a blend of Ace Attorney and Zero Escape with its exploration and trial segments, and this new game offers more of that goodness with a new setting and new characters.
For now, you can pre-order the standard version of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (Amazon) or the Limited Edition which includes the game, a softcover art book, the original soundtrack, a collector's box, a Monocoin, a sticker, and a pair of sunglasses (seen here).
For now, NIS America has put out a new trailer and screens highlighting this game's cast of characters. You can check them out below. The characters in the original Danganronpa were fantastic examples of how cliches can break from the norm, and this looks to follow in the same pattern. Get ready for more murdery goodness soon.
More after the break...
