NIS America has announced that Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, an action-adventure spinoff that’s set between Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair will be released for the PS4 on June 27.
Originally released for the Vita in 2015, Danganronpa Another Episode stars Komaru Naegi, the sister of Trigger Happy Havoc’s protagonist, Makoto Naegi:
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.
In addition to Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, NIS America has big plans for the Danganronpa franchise on the PS4 this year. Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, a compilation of the first two games in the series, will be released for the PS4 on March 14. And both titles will be followed by Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, which should be available before the end of the year.
