Spike Chunsoft has released a load of new information as well as some new videos for upcoming game New Danganronpa V3: Everyone’s New Semester of Killing. First up we have some details about what you’ll be getting up to during the class trials!

Nonstop Debates will happen when an unclarified issue comes up. The students will argue between themselves and will make remarks one after another. It’s up to you to try to find the inconsistencies and weak spots in their arguments. You’ll be able to shoot “Truth Bullets” at the weak spots, these bullets of truth will be found by you during the investigation stage of the game.

You’ll also be able to agree with others using Agreement Remarks. Unlike weak points which are highlighted in yellow, agreement points are highlighted in blue.

Occasionally there will be Panic Debates where the students talk over the top of each other. This is a harder version of the Nonstop Debates; you’ll need to find the inconsistency but it’ll be harder as there will be a number of characters talking at the same time and so more text on the screen.

There will be a few new minigames for you to experience Excavation Imagination, Brain Drive and Epiphany Anagram Ver. 3.0.

In Excavation you’ll be trying to find the answer to a question by “excavating” the illustrations hidden beneath the blocks. AS you can see in the screenshot below there are three colors of blocks, if you select a block that is next to a block of the same color you’ll be able to erase all blocks of the same color that are next to the one you are excavating.

In Brain Drive you’ll be controlling a car and will need to collect letters to complete a word which relates to the case.

In Epiphany Anagram Ver. 3.0 you’ll need to complete an answer to a problem by selecting the correct letters that are flying around the screen. To make things trickier the letters are shrouded in shadows so you’ll be relying on the light that sometimes appears to see which circles contain which letters.

We also have some details on the characters you’ll meet!

Kaede Akamatsu (voiced by Sayaka Kanda) is the Ultimate Pianist. She’s a cheerful and positive person who has a lot of determination to achieve her goals. Rantaro Amami (voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa) is the Ultimate ???. He can’t remember what his talent is but seems fairly calm and relaxed about missing some of his memories.

Miu Iruma (voiced by Haruka Ishida) is the Ultimate Inventor. Although she appears really confident, has a sharp tongue and makes lots of dirty jokes she gets quite timid when attacked by others. Kokichi Oma (voiced by Hiro Shimono) is the Ultimate Leader. He is said to be the “Leader of an Evil Secret Society of Over 10,000 People”. The details of this organisation is shrouded in mystery and even the school’s Ultimate Detective knows nothing about it…

Monotaro (voiced by Koichi Yamadera) appears to be the leader of the other Monokumas but he does also have a childishly clumsy side to him. Monokid (voiced by Koichi Yamadera) is one of the rudest among the Monokumas. He doesn’t tend to listen to what other people are actually saying and can quickly derail a conversation.
