The horrors have ended at Hope’s Peak Academy, however now society itself is on the verge of collapse as violent anarchy has engulfed the entire world in despair. This is the setup for Spike Chunsoft’s and Nippon Ichi Software’s upcoming action-adventure game, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. To sate your appetite for the game until it’s released, they have shared a brand new trailer:
The new title is set between the events of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and is aiming for a Fall 2015 release date in both physical and digital formats. In the new title, you will take on the role of two heroines, Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa, who are thrust into a despair-ridden Towa City. These two have one rather simple goal: Escape the city alive.
