Puhuhuhu… Hello everyone! This is Judith from NIS America. I’m here to announce that Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls will be arriving on June 27, 2017 for PS4 at retail and on PlayStation Store! For those of you who don’t have a PS Vita (where it was initially released), you now have a fantastic opportunity to play!
Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls deviates from the visual novel formula and gives players the thrill of action-packed battles between Komaru Naegi, Toko Fukawa, and the Monokuma robots. While Komaru wanders and explores Towa City, Toko’s “battery gauge” fills up slowly, and when full, players can have Toko transform into Genocide Jack, a ruthless killer who is immune to all damage! However, once her battery gauge is fully depleted, she turns back into Toko, and Komaru once again leads the exploration.
But what is the source of the despair? Komaru discovers that the Warriors of Hope — elementary school children who seek to create a utopia by murdering all adults with Monokuma robots — are behind the chaos. By using her Hacking Gun to confront the Monokuma robots, Komaru just may stand a fighting chance against the onslaught of murderous bears!
What’s so special about the Hacking Gun is its variety of Truth Bullets that can be used in different situations. For instance, some puzzles will require clever use of the “Move” Truth Bullet, which can flip switches, activate machines, and solve puzzles!
New and familiar faces will appear in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, and for those of you curious about where in the timeline this game takes place in the Danganronpa world, it is set between Danganronpa 1 & 2.
Are you ready to live (or relive) the despair of the Danganronpa world? Grab your Hacking Gun and brace yourself for a despair-filled adventure! For more information about Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, be sure to visit the official website.
