It looks like Japan will be getting an early look at New Danganronpa V3, as a pre-release demo is currently slated for the region.

Spike Chunsoft has announced that a demo will be available for New Danganronpa V3: Everyone’s New Semester of Killing before the full game releases, giving you a chance to try it before you buy it. The demo will feature characters Makoto Naegi, Yasuhiro Hagakure, and Hajime Hinata as guests, focusing on a different story from the main game while still letting you explore the new systems. You’ll be able to use lies to win arguments, initiate Brain Drive, and more – with completion of the demo netting you a bonus item for use in the full game.

In addition to the demo news, the latest Famitsu appears to have information on the board game-type “Super High School Level Talent Training Project” mini-game, the classmate communication-type “Dangan Benizakedan” mini-game, and the dungeon crawling RPG-type “Dungeon of Despair: Monokuma’s Trial” mini-game.


New Danganronpa V3: Everyone’s New Semester of Killing is due out in Japan on January 12th, 2017 – the demo set to release sometime before that.
