NIS America announced on Tuesday that it will release Danganronpa 1•2 Reload, a combo pack of the first and second Danganronpa games, for PlayStation 4 in early 2017 in North America and Europe. The game will be available both physically and digitally, with a limited physical edition available through NIS America's online store.
Spike Chunsoft released Danganronpa 1 • 2 Reload for PlayStation Vita in October 2013, after first releasing both games for PlayStation Portable. The game added new features, such as the first Danganronpa game's "School Mode" (a renamed version of the "Island Mode" in Danganronpa 2).
NIS America released the first and second Danganronpa games on PS Vita in North America and Europe in 2014 under the names Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. It also released the spinoff game Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (Zettai Zetsubō Shōjo Danganronpa: Another Episode, or Absolute Despair Girl Danganronpa: Another Episode).
Spike Chunsoft will release New Danganronpa V3: Minna no Koroshiai Shin Gakki (New Danganronpa V3: Everyone's New Semester of Killing) for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on January 12.
The first game inspired a television anime in 2013. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan and later released the series on home video. Funimation then streamed the Despair Arc, Future Arc, and Hope Arc for the Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School television anime as they aired in Japan.
