The Danganronpa franchise has one of my favourite stories in gaming. Originally releaed outside Japan on PS Vita before seeing ports to PS4 and PC, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (this debuted on all three platforms at the same time) are all coming to iOS and Android. The announcement was made as the first of many to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Danganronpa franchise. The Danganronpa games are adventure games that have visual novel and puzzle elements. They have an amazing cast of characters and great music from Masafumi Takada who also did music for the recently released Digimon games on PC and Nintendo Switch.
I’ve played the first two games in the series about five times each and Danganronpa V3 twice so far. These games include trial segments that have minigames. The only situations in which I foresee some trouble with the touch control are some of the minigames that were a bit hard to control even on PC. The rest of the game would translate very well. If you’ve never played the series before, it has great art, music, and a wild story. Having played all three of the main numbered games, Danganronpa is something I enjoyed way more than any Ace Attorney game as well which a series people compare this one to. In addition to these ports, Spike Chunsoft also revealed a collaboration with Identity V. Watch the trailer for it below:
The first Danganronpa game, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was actually available on iOS in Japan already as a free to start game. That eventually got pulled. The versions planned for releae now include a touch controls, a gallery, a new UI, and more. The releases are being dubbed Anniversary Editions. As of now, no pricing or release window has been announced but I can’t imagine Spike Chunsoft will not release these outside Japan in a timely manner considering how well the series has done in the West. We also have Death Come True from the Danganronpa director hitting mobile in June. Check out the official English website for the console versions of Danganronpa here.
