New Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair screenshots have been released by NIS America, showcasing some new mechanics for the class trials in the game as well as showing locations and characters.

There are three key scenes/mini games on show; updated favorites from the original game alongside new additions.

  • Logic Drive
    Logic Drive see players guiding their characters along a glowing path on a skateboard. Obstacles will attempt to hinder progress in the form of questions. Answering correctly will take you down the correct path, while answering incorrectly will send you down the wrong path.
  • Hangman’s Gambit
    The familiar mode from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc returns with an update. Players will still need to collect the correct letters in order to spell out their key evidence during the class trials. New additions include the ability to fuse identical letters together to form larger letters, earning more points. However, if the larger letters detonate before you use them, or if mismatched letters are combined, players’ health bars will take the hit.
  • Rebuttal Showdown
    This time around, characters won’t just let you talk or present evidence without interruption; players will need to use evidence to win the arguments in one-on-one debates.

Check out the screenshot gallery below and let us know what you think on the forums.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair launches in North America on September 2, Europe on September 5.
