Fight hordes of murderous bears as the visual novel series adds new action elements

Puhuhuhu… Hello everyone! This is Judith from NIS America and I’m here to announce that Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls will be arriving on 23 June 2017 for the PS4 as a physical and digital release! For those of you who do not have a PS Vita (where it was initially released), you now have a fantastic opportunity to play!

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

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 is 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!

  • Urgh. That’s too far away! Still excited though, so much Danganronpa this year!

    Just curious if you could answer it already, but any chance this is also going to get a seperate trophy list from the Vita version?

    • Hi there! Yes, the trophy list will be separate from the Vita version. :) Thanks for asking and we hope you look forward to the game, dood!

  • Everyone who played Danganronpa 1 and 2 (or is going to) should really play this title! The shooting is more fun than I thought and the story is every bit as compelling and crazy as in the first two games.
    This release will also probably get rid of the Vita versions biggest problem: Performance.

    The only question that remains is whether the PS4 version will have dual-audio like the vita game.

  • Would you folks stop with the non-stop usage of memes and just do a direct translation? cause i stopped buying games from you folks considering a lot of westernized [DELETED] is pushed into it.
