PS4 Gets Excellent Murder-Mystery Games Danganronpa 1 and 2

Danganronpa makes its console debut.


The first two Danganronpa games, the series in which exemplary teenagers are locked together in a school by a murderous teddy bear and only allowed to leave if they murder someone without being caught, are coming to PS4.

NIS America announced the news today, revealing it's bringing both Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair to PS4 in the form of a bundle called Danganronpa 1/2 Reload. The two games, both of which are visual novel/adventure games, were originally released in Japan on PSP before making it to the West on Vita. They were released on PC earlier this year.

Now Playing: Danganronpa 1-2 Reload: Announcement Trailer

Reload arrives on PS4 in North America and Europe sometime in early 2017. The press release makes no mention of these being enhanced versions; they sound like straight ports.

There's also no word if the third Danganronpa game, Ultra Despair Girls (which is only on Vita), will also make it to PS4. The next main, numbered entry in the series, Danganronpa 3, was previously announced for a PS4 and Vita release in Japan; it arrives there next year.
