Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition hits mobile platforms next month


You say 'Goodbye,' I say 'Hello'

Spike Chunsoft has announced that the next title in the Danganronpa Anniversary Collection is ready to slice 'n' dice its way onto mobile platforms. Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition will launch for iOS and Android devices on August 20.

Originally released for the PlayStation Portable way back in 2012, Goodbye Despair is the equally nutty sequel to 2010 murderthon Trigger Happy Havoc and once again sees a motley crew of students fighting for their lives under the mismatched eyes of psychotic plush toy Monokuma, (this time accompanied by his lovable bunny-rabbit relative, Monomi).

Moving the action from the schoolyard to a tropical island, players will step into the shoes of another "lucky" student, and must use their sharp wits and powers of deduction to solve a series of grisly killings and root out the perpetrators. New features include the argument-inducing "Rebuttal Mode", and a unique mechanic known as "Logic Dive" which has a snowboarding-style mini-game represent the character's search for the facts, ma'am.

As was the case with Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition, this version of Goodbye Despair will include several new features such as optimised visuals, an overhauled control scheme, a gallery mode, and other tweaks to modernise the title for its mobile re-release. Other Danganronpa titles will be receiving similar treatment in the near future.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition launches in Japan on iOS and Android devices August 20. While no localisation has been announced, a global release is expected.
