All Articles: Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, Styx: Shards of Darkness, Momodora, more added to PS Store

With the northeast buried under a literal mountain of snow, now’s a great time to explore this week’s additions to the PlayStation Store…

After slowly gaining momentum with PS Vita and PC players over the past few years, NIS America will bring the first two murder mysteries in the Danganronpa franchise (Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair) to the PS4 this week as Danganronpa 1-2 Reload. Also available to download this week for the PS4 is Styx: Shards of Darkness, a stealth adventure from Cyanide Studio and Focus Home Interactive.

And later this week, PS4 owners will be able to download Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight, a “MetroidVania” with “highly satisfying combat and gorgeous pixel art.”

So keep shoveling and dig into more details about all these games (and the rest of this week’s new releases) after the break. (more…)

New Retail Releases: Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, Styx Shards of Darkness, Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+

Here’s what your local game retailer will be stocking their shelves with this week…

After making its North American debut on the Vita in 2014, NIS America will bring the Danganronpa franchise to the PS4 for the first time this week thanks to Danganronpa 1-2 Reload. The package will include the first two games in the series (Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair), and fans both new and old will get to experience the murderous machinations of Monokuma, the evil robotic bear at the center of the story.

If a murderous robotic bear isn’t bizarre enough for you, Nicalis will also launch The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ for the Nintendo Switch this week. Developed by Edmund McMillen, one of the co-creators of Super Meat Boy, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a procedurally-generated shooter (with RPG elements) that forces Isaac to fight back against the monsters in his basement.

Finally this week, Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio will bring Styx: Shards of Darkness to the PS4 and Xbox One. The medieval stealth sequel asks Styx to infiltrate the city of Korrangar to steal a scepter of “immense and indomitable power.”

That’s all for now, but we’ll be back later this week with an expanded look at the latest additions to the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Nintendo eShop.

NIS America has announced that Danganronpa 1-2 Reload, a PS4-exclusive compilation containing Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, will be released on March 14.

In addition to information about the Danganronpa franchise and its many off-the-wall characters (including Monokuma, a “demented robotic bear”), the website also includes trailers, screenshots, and a pre-order page for a special Limited Edition of Danganronpa 1-2 Reload.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair are currently available for the Vita and the PC (through Steam).

NIS America will bring Danganronpa 1-2 Reload to the PS4 in Early 2017

NIS America has announced that the first two games in their Danganronpa series will be released for the PS4 in Early 2017. Danganronpa 1-2 Reload will include Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, a pair of murder mysteries originally released for the Vita. Starring a deranged clockwork bear named Monokuma, players will have to outsmart his machinations and escape with their lives intact:

In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, enter Hope’s Peak Academy, a prestigious high school reserved for the nation’s “ultimate” students. Things get a bit twisted when the academy’s students find themselves trapped inside with Monokuma, a maniacal bear who has taken them all prisoner to play his deadly game of despair.

Continue the adventure in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair with a brand new cast of Ultimates. Mysteriously trapped on Jabberwock Island in their own life-or-death game, having fun in the sun with this twisted teddy requires more than a bit of wit to survive.

A trailer for Danganronpa 1-2 Reload has been embedded above.
