NIS America have confirmed that the third title in the popular Danganronpa series of visual novels, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, is coming to the PS Vita in the EU and US later this year…
After the horrors have ended at Hope’s Peak Academy, society is on the verge of collapse and violent anarchy has engulfed the whole world in despair! Danganronpa™ Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, the pre-sequel to the highly popular mystery adventure game Danganronpa™ 2: Goodbye Despair, is coming to North America and Europe on the PlayStation®Vita this fall. This title will be available as both a physical and digital release. Unlike the first two games, players will take on the role of two heroines, Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa, as they are thrust into a despair-ridden Towa City with one goal–escape.
Komaru Naegi, little sister to Makoto Naegi, has been imprisoned inside a mysterious apartment for over a year. One day, she is rescued by Byakuya Togami of Future Foundation, but the rescue is derailed by a sudden attack of hundreds of Monokumas. Komaru soon discovers that the city has been taken over by a group of children calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children’s Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated. Komaru teams up with Toko Fukawa to try to survive the rampaging Monokumas, escape the crafty Monokuma Kids, and uncover the secrets of the city.
The game’s key features include:
- Third Person Shooter Action Sequences: Use Future Foundation’s Hacking Gun to have a fighting chance against the hordes of Monokumas as you traverse Towa City.
- Tons of Different Types of Ammo: Tackle challenges with multiple kinds of Truth Bullets, such as Paralyze and Link. Upgrade your firepower with special Bling Bullet modifiers.
- Riddles and Puzzles: The Monokuma Kids will challenge more than just your trigger finger; you’ll need your smarts to survive as well. There’s a lot to discover in the city, with a number of familiar faces and mysteries to unravel!
