A suspicious tweet from an English actor may suggest that a Danganronpa sequel may find a release in the West.

With the launch of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc today in North America, voice actor Kyle Hebert announced that he would be lending his talents to the game by voicing  Kazuichi Souda.  The tweet was deleted shortly after without reason, however it may be due to the fact that Souda never appears in the newly released game, but rather the currently Japanese-only sequel Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Farewell Despair Academy for PSP.

A bundle of the two games for PlayStation Vita had been produced under the banner of Danganronpa 1・2 Reload late last year, however it is also exclusive to Japan.

While this may simply of been an error, NIS America haven’t announced plans for a western release of the sequel as of yet, making the tweet ambiguous at best considering that the actor appears to have recorded dialogue for the character.

Hebert recently appeared as the English voice of Gohan in Bandai Namco‘s Dragon Ball Z: The Battle of Z .

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is available today for PlayStation Vita.

    While it stinks that if we do get the game, we’ll pay twice as much for it than Japan had to, the fact that we got the first game at all is surprising. And by twice, I mean that Japan only had to pay full price once for both games, whereas we’ll no doubt have to pay full price for each installment.
