At E3 2021, Nintendo Direct announced something I did not see coming: Danganronpa Decadence. Spike Chunsoft, the developers of the Danganronpa series, said “Danganronpa Decadence contains the three main titles in the legendary Danganronpa franchise, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition, and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Anniversary Edition, and also features the brand-new title Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp, a boardgame-style bonus game with all-new scenes and interactions between your favorite characters!”
Now, I am excited about this game because the Danganronpa is such a great series. If you are a fan of the Ace Attorney series, I think you will enjoy this murder mystery meets visual novel game. There are a couple of things you can expect in any Danganronpa game, except for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (an Action Adventure video game) and the newly announced Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp, you can expect: a killing game (much like horror film Death Bell) murders, mysteries, a class trails, and a punishment for the killer.
Now, if you are a fan of complex characters, Danganronpa has your back! A lot of these characters seem like one-dimensional characters, but getting to know them better by bonding with them. However, this is a double-edged sword. The one who starts to become your favorite could be on the chopping block, whether they are killed or a killer. You just never know until it is too late, and that’s part of the fun. Personally, I played Danganronpa V3 and I had no idea what was going to happen next, and in a murder mystery game, that’s great!
In conclusion, if you are fan of mysteries and plot twists do yourself a favor and get your hands on Danganronpa Decadence. I know that I will get my hands on this game!
