Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Launching September 1
"I've got no choice. I've got to start the SLICCCIIINNN'!!"
Danganronpa: Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is one of my most-anticipated games of the year, and it's finally been graced with an English trailer and release date! NIS America has finally given it the go-ahead for September 1, and the follow-up to the original two Danganronpa games looks crazier than ever.
Details about what you'll be up to in-game have been floating around for some time, but now there's even more to clue us in on what you'll be doing. It's a decidedly different spinoff, where you play as Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa while they try and escape a despair-filled city. Monokumas will pop up everywhere and you'll have to annihilate them with Truth Bullets. You've also got Toko, who can switch between her normal, mousy personality to Genocide Jack, who's downright scary with scissors.
But you'll also be solving puzzles, interacting with other characters, and going through some familiar Danganronpa-esque motions that'll make you feel right at home. It's important to remember if you're interested, however, this isn't going to be the same kind of setup. It's very much its own beast, with plenty of new stuff sprinkled in.
Give it a look when it releases, and be sure to watch for a review here at Modojo!
