A lot of big name games took the stage at Dengeki’s Thanksgiving Festival on Sunday, but apparently, one title had quietly sneaked in a teaser that remained unnoticed until it was revealed on Twitter.
In case you don’t recognize the characters in the above illustration, they are from Super Danganronpa 2, the PSP murder mystery game that was released last year and received a Silver Rank in the Dengeki PlayStation Awards. If you look closely, you’ll see that they’re all holding a PS Vita (except Monomi, who’s tied up).
This illustration went unnoticed on the Internet until someone shared it on Twitter. At first, we weren’t even sure where it was from, but according to an anonymous commentator on Moe Otanews, the picture is from the Dengeki PlayStation Award Memorial Visual Book handed out at Dengeki’s Thanksgiving Festival.
Could the appearance of this illustration mean that a new Danganronpa game for the Vita is in the works?
This illustration alone may not convince you, but there’s more. On February 18, there was a presentation centered around the PS Vita on Sony Computer Entertainment’s website. At the end of the presentation, Sony featured gameplay footage of several different games, followed by a sudden, brief cameo by Monokuma in the bottom right corner of the screen.
It certainly seems like the developer Spike Chunsoft is teasing a Danganronpa game for the Vita. Although this hasn’t been confirmed, you can still look forward to the Danganronpa anime coming this summer.
