In an unsurprising twist, I’m having slight anxiety playing Danganronpa 2.
Good morning, everyone! Welcome to Kotaku’s review of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Since the two of us—Jason and Kirk—have already spent a ton of time talking about Danganronpa, we figured we’d team up to review the sequel together.
The new Danganronpa 3 anime will be split into two parts. The new promo trailer, however, is filled with game spoilers, so jump ahead to 3:07 to skip those.
Danganronpa 2, Spike Chunsoft’s murderous visual novel, is coming to Steam on April 18. D2: Goodbye Despair is the second game of the PSP/PS Vita series to come to PC, so you may want to check out our impressions of the first game’s port for an idea what this one might be like. There’s an announcement trailer above.
Until today, you could only play the weird, wonderful Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc on a Sony PSP or Vita. Rejoice: It’s now out on PC and Mac.
Danganronpa, a game about what Japanese high school is really like, will be out on Steam February 18. The second game will also come to PC at some point in the future, says developer Chunsoft, who are publishing these versions themselves.
It looks like Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is coming to Steam according to this teaser. According to the clip’s description, it’s hitting “this February.”
Danganronpa is getting a new anime series. It’s called Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen and will air next year in Japan.
PlayStation VR may be the only way I ever want to play Final Fantasy XIV—so long as they work out some of the real world kinks.
Do you like Danganronpa? Oh, lovely. Would you like more Danganronpa? Good news, because that’s exactly what you are getting.
Dear Kotaku: I have failed you. There’s a new Danganronpa out this week, and I’ve barely even touched it.
Yes, that’s WWE star Triple H. Yes, that’s Danganronpa character Aoi Asahina. Yes, they’re starring together in an absurd hour-long crime drama where the two worlds collide.
Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls arrives on September 1 for PS Vita. The third-person action game is set between the two main games. Here’s a new trailer:
Last year’s two Danganronpa games sold a combined 200,000 copies in the west, according to publisher NIS America. That’s not only remarkable because they’re niche visual novels—it’s remarkable because they were only on Vita. Pay attention, game publishers!
One of last year's best gaming surprises was Danganronpa, a twisted series of mysteries that involve high school students, murder mysteries, and a talking stuffed bear.
Rejoice, Danganronpa fans: the spinoff shooter Danganronpa: Another Episode is coming to North America this fall. It's also for the Vita, and it's set between Danganronpa and Danganronpa 2.
I don't know what I was expecting for a smartphone game based on a series of murder mystery/death game visual novels, but it wasn't billiards.
Danganronpa is a wonderfully weird and subversive murder mystery series, so it makes sense someone would eventually cross it over with wrestling. Enter Danganwrestling, where we learn John Cena's most coveted secret: he looooooooves anime.
A couple of Kotaku staffers love Danganronpa, the weirdly named Japanese visual novels/murder mysteries released on the Vita in the U.S. this year. I figured I should try one by year's end. I knew going in that I was in for a rough time.
