NIS America is delighted to announce that Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, the sequel to Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is coming to the PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe this autumn in both retail and digital form. As in the first game, players will take on the role of a high school student as they are thrust into a life-or-death situation and must use their wits and teamwork to survive.
The new Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair will revolve around Jabberwock Island, once a popular tourist destination, this now uninhabited island remains oddly pristine. You and your classmates at the elite Hope’s Peak Academy have been brought to this island by your super cute teacher for a ‘lovey-dovey’ heart throbbing school trip. Trapped in this island of mutual killing, your only hope of escape rests in solving the island’s mysteries.
- Deadly Island Vibes: Murder is the only means of escape when you’re trapped on this island paradise. As your fellow classmates start dropping like coconuts, you’ll need to delve into each murderous incident, forage for clues and interview your classmates to reveal the opportunity, motive and means behind each killer case.
- Tribal Council: You’ll go head-to-head in all new minigames with the other students during the class trial, shooting down their false truths and using your evidence to uncover what really happened. But, watch out, if a student is unconvinced, they’ll challenge you to a one-on-one Rebuttal Showdown and force you to defend the argument.
- Survival of the Keenest: Match up your evidence with your fellow classmates arguments and determine who’s really telling the truth. Once you’ve got a suspect in your sights, turn up that tropical heat in a variety of timing and reflex based game systems to reveal the ultimate truth and escape with your life.
