New setting, same despair.
The next Danganronpa game will not return to Hope’s Peak Academy. In fact, only Monokuma will return in New Danganronpa V3, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game where students will be thrust into a murder mystery against their will. The story of Hope’s Peak Academy will conclude next year, but will be told in a completely different format.
Spike Chunsoft revealed the first trailer for New Danganronpa V3: Everyone’s New Semester of Killing at a press conference. The game takes place in the Gifted Inmates Academy with a new cast of characters. The Class Trial mechanics will return along with a mechanic where you must lie to dismantle other’s arguments.
The press conference also confirmed a new anime series, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy. This anime will conclude the story of the first two games. Series creator Kazutaka Kodaka claims that certain aspects of Danganronpa 3 can only be told in anime form, which is why it won’t be turned into a video game.
