Yes! The localization fans have been waiting for more Danganronpa assets from NIS America. Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is coming to North America and Europe for the PlayStation Vita in early 2014. Yes, that Japanese game where a bunch of high school students are locked away and forced to murder each other, solve each other's murder, and then win a game show is being localized. It's like Phoenix Wright meets Battle Royale.
Here's a quick plot synopsis provided by NIS America:
"Hope's Peak Academy is home to Japan's best and brightest high school students—the beacons of hope for the future. But that hope suddenly dies when Makoto Naegi and his classmates find themselves imprisoned in the school, cut off from the outside world and subject to the whims of a strange, murderous little bear named Monokuma. He pits the students against each other, promising freedom to anyone who can murder a fellow classmate and get away with it.
It's up to you to find out who Monokuma really is, and why you've been taken from the world you once knew. But be careful what you wish for—sometimes there's nothing more deadly than the truth..."
This is just one of those quirky Japanese titles that looks to be a ton of fun, but never gets the attention it deserves. It reminds me a lot of 999, Corpse Party, or even Valkyria Chronicles when it was first launched. Hopefully Danganronpa proves just as eccentric and fun as those others.
Expect Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc to be released in early 2014 exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. Thanks for the localization, NIS!
