Danganronpa 1 & 2 Reloaded for PS Vita Announced
posted on by Egan Loo
Spike Chunsoft is porting its Danganronpa 1 & 2 mystery action games in one set for PlayStation Vita. Danganronpa 1 & 2 Reload will add new features anticipated by fans, such as a "School Mode" in Danganronpa 1 (a renamed version of the "Island Mode" in Danganronpa 2). Producer Yoshinori Terasawa, associate producer Yōichirō Saitō, scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka, character designer Rui Komatsuzaki and musical composer Masafumi Takada are all returning for this set.
The first PSP game follows a group of high school students, each with a different exceptional talent, who are locked inside a school and told that the only way to escape is to kill another student without getting caught. After a murder, the remaining students must hold a trial with their lives on the line to find out who the killer is. The second game recreates the premise on a tropical resort island.
Famitsu posted screenshots from the new set.
The game series is inspiring a television anime this summer. Persona 4: The Animation's Seiji Kishi is directing the series, which will feature the same cast as the game. Makoto Uezu is in charge of series composition and scripts, and Lerche is animating the project.
The anime will premiere on July 4 on MBS in the "Animeism" block.
