That’s right guys, NIS America has finally announced the localization of Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo – Danganronpa Another Episode, coming to a Vita near you this Fall.

Announced today for Western release, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls bridges the gap between Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair – putting you in the shoes of Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa as they attempt to escape a city full of despair.

Here’s the official description of the game from the press release;

Komaru Naegi, little sister to Makoto Naegi, has been imprisoned inside a mysterious apartment for over a year. One day, she is rescued by Byakuya Togami of Future Foundation, but the rescue is derailed by a sudden attack of hundreds of Monokumas. Komaru soon discovers that the city has been taken over by a group of children calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. Their leader, Monaca, declares that the city will be the site of a Children’s Paradise, and to accomplish this, all the adults will be exterminated. Komaru teams up with Toko Fukawa to try to survive the rampaging Monokumas, escape the crafty Monokuma Kids, and uncover the secrets of the city.

Key features of the game include third person action sequences, tons of different ammo types (such as truth bullets meant to paralyze and link), riddles, puzzles, and even some familiar faces making a surprise appearance during play.


Here’s a batch of screens to wet your appetite for the game even more;

Once again, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is coming West this Fall, and you can be sure The Vita Lounge will bring you all the updates on the game as and when they happen.

    My excitement can only be measured by how many Monokumas that will die by my hand.
