Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is the sequel to the popular Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. The game was originally released on PSP a few years ago in Japan. Gameplay and story is very similar to the first game. You arrive at an academy together with a group of students, not knowing that Monokuma has other plans for you. The deal is that if you kill another student and get away with it, you get to leave the academy. If you fail, you are executed. Gameplay is divided into three parts. First you socialize with students and drive the plot forward, then when a dead student is found you examine the crime scene for clues. These clues are then used in the third part, the class trial. There is a trailer available here, and if you are good at japanese you can visit the official website. There is also a third Danganronpa game in development for the Vita, but the release date is unknown.
