Kadokawa Games and Nitroplus' upcoming Motto! SoniComi game for the PlayStation 3 will allow players can customize Super Sonico with Danganronpa-themed costumes. Super Sonico can wear hoodies and carry puppets resembling the black-and-white bear Monokuma or the pink-and-white rabbit Monomi from the Danganronpa and Super Danganronpa 2 PlayStation Portable games. The outfits will be available in the in-game store.
The Motto! SoniComi "love communication" game is an updated version of the 2011 PC game SoniComi with revamped graphics and easier gameplay. In the game, players aim to become a professional cameraman, and take requests from various clients while deepening a friendship with the new gravure idol Sonico.
Super Sonico is the mascot girl of the "Nitro Super Sonic" events held by Nitroplus. In her back story, she is already a photoshoot model, game character, and a musician, even as she studies as a college student. She is also part of a three-piece girl band named "Daiichi Uchū Sokudo" (Fastest Speed in Space) as the vocalist and guitarist.
Motto! SoniComi is slated to ship in Japan on March 20, 2014 in a limited edition for 9,240 yen (US$90) and a normal edition for 7,140 yen (US$70). Those who pre-order the game will get a code for a "sweet" costume DLC designed by Santa Tsuji.
Spike Chunsoft's revamped PlayStation Vita version of Danganronpa, localized by NIS America as Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, was released in Japan in 2010 and will ship in the United States on Tuesday and in Europe on Friday. The game inspired a television anime series that premiered on July 4. Funimation streamed the series as it aired.
