Courtesy of NIS America, the murder mystery game Danganronpa and RPG Demon Gaze are both coming to North America and Europe, for those of you who prefer to read English.
The Danganronpa series from Spike Chunsoft has been a hot topic lately, due to the anime airing this season and the newly announced remake of the two PSP games (read about them here on SGCafe).
At first glance, Danganronpa may look like a normal visual novel, but it’s not just any visual novel — it’s a mystery game with quick-time events where one mistake can get almost everyone killed. Hence, people who can’t read Japanese very well may have been too scared to try the games.
But now, those people will finally get to enjoy the first game along with everyone else. The English version, titled Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, will be an enhanced version of the first Danganronpa game to be released for the PS Vita. NISA hasn’t elaborated how the game will be enhanced, but since it is being ported from the PSP, it will presumably have improved graphics. So far, we don’t know if it will have the School Mode like 1 & 2 Reload.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the game, Danganronpa is centered around 15 incredibly talented high school students who are trapped inside Kibougamine Academy, where the only way to escape is to kill someone without getting caught. Each time someone is killed, the rest of the students hold a trial where they must find the culprit — or else, the rest of them will be killed!
To get a better idea of Danganronpa, you can watch this trailer, featuring the sadistic Monokuma, voiced by Nobuyo Oyama (the voice actress of Doraemon):
The other game being localized, Demon Gaze, is a dungeon-crawling RPG developed by Experience and first released in January. The game is centered around a boy named Oz who is a Demon Gazer, a warrior with a magic eye that gives him the power to capture half-machine demons and summon them in battle.
Along with the demons, you can create your own characters and customize them by choosing between five races, seven classes, and 45 designs. For a better look at the game, you can read our previous article and watch the trailer below, featuring the theme song, Kakeru Hitomi, performed by the Vocaloid IA.
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Demon Gaze are scheduled to be released in early 2014. Are you excited to add these to your Vita library?
