Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls Gets North American Release Date

With two Danganronpa titles having been released in 2015, many of us have been wondering whether or not a Monokuma-sized hole would appear in our hearts if 2015 went by without a release in the rapidly-growing series. Luckily for us North Americans, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls will hit the Vita Store on September 1, 364 days after the wonderful Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair released.

Danganronpa Another Episode is a third-person shooter with a heavy narrative focus that places players in the shoes of Makoto Naegi’s sister Komaru and the notorious Toko Fukawa. Players will have to shoot truth bullets at any number of murderers in order to advance the story, though this time these bullets won’t be few and far between.

An action-packed departure from the previous entries in the Danganronpa series, which were visual novels, Another Episode might just be the most promising Vita exclusive title this year outside of Drinkbox’s Severed.
