Murder mystery game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is getting a PC port next month. Originally exclusive to the PlayStation Vita in North America, developer Spike Chunsoft announced the news on Twitter today.

Danganronpa's PC version doesn't have a specific release date, but we do know it's launching in February (via Polygon). On its Steam page, it's revealed there will be a limited edition for "early purchases" that includes Despair in Stereo, a soundtrack featuring 16 original songs from the game.

Last week, the Japanese developer created an English Twitter account, with its first tweet possibly teasing a PC version of the game.

The description on Danganronpa's steam page reads as follows:

"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..."

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc received a score of 8 in GameSpot's review, which said it's an excellent adventure with a story that celebrates the human spirit.
