Get ready for more Monokuma, more Upupupupu, and more hijinks at Hope’s Peak Academy as Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls helps keep the PlayStation Vita alive when it drops in just a couple months on Sept. 1.
Taking place between the exemplary Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Ultra Despair Girls shakes up the visual novel gameplay of previous entries, instead opting for a third-person action format. Publisher NIS America has just released a new trailer for the upcoming title, which you can check out above. It shows off most of the main players this time around, as well as the opening cinematics of the game.
According to the official synopsis, Komaru Naegi (who happens to be the younger sister of Trigger Happy Havoc‘s Makoto Naegi) “has been imprisoned inside a mysterious apartment for over a year. One day, she is rescued by Byakuya Togami of Future Foundation, but the rescue is derailed by a sudden attack of hundreds of Monokumas. Komaru soon discovers that the city has been taken over by a group of children calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children’s Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated. Komaru teams up with Toko Fukawa to try to survive the rampaging Monokumas, escape the crafty Monokuma Kids, and uncover the secrets of the city.”
