NIS America has released a new batch of screenshots for Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, the sequel to the highly popular mystery adventure game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc!
The game will be making its way to the PlayStation Vita in North America on September 2 and to Europe on September 5 in both retail and digital form. As in the first game, players will take on the role of a high school student as they are thrust into a life-or-death situation, and must use their wits and teamwork to survive. Each student was chosen for a special ability they possess, making them the “ultimate” example of something. Characters in this title are also designed by Rui Komatsuzaki for a unique and darker take on the anime style.
More details after the break.
This batch of screenshots shows off some of the new elements that make up the Class Trial!
Logic Dive – You’ll skateboard through a glowing path, interrupted by questions. Answering correctly will lead you down the right path, but the wrong answer will throw you off course and reset the Logic Dive!
Hangman’s Gambit – Letters are flying across the screen, and you have to pick out the ones you need to spell out your key evidence! Correct spelling lands you points, and you can fuse like letters together to form larger yet stationary letters that are worth even more points! But these big letters will detonate if you’re too slow to use them, and if mismatched letters collide with each other, your health bar will take a big hit!
Rebuttal Showdown – Characters won’t just sit back and let you talk this time around. Your arguments can be interrupted, and you’ll have to use evidence to cut down their arguments in this frenetic, one-on-one debate! The tropical sun’s bringing some serious heat to the Class Trial!
About the game:
Jabberwock Island — once a popular tourist destination, this now uninhabited island remains oddly pristine. You and your classmates at the elite Hope’s Peak Academy have been brought to this island by your super-cute teacher for a “lovey-dovey, heart-throbbing school trip.” Everyone seems to be having fun in the sun…until Monokuma returns to restart his murderous game! Trapped on this island of mutual killing, your only hope of escape rests in solving the island’s mysteries. But be warned &mdash sometimes the truth can be its own despair…
