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).
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.
