The latest episode in the Danganronpa saga is coming exclusively to Vita very soon.
Danganronpa: Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is a bit of a change of pace from the previous titles, which were visual novel adventure games, with a lot of exploration and puzzle solving. This is a third-person action game, set between the first two games, with horror elements thrown in as well.
Despite the change of pace critics are generally enjoying the game, although often not quite as much as the originals. Here’s a roundup of some of the scores so far, including the highest and the lowest:
- The Vita Lounge: 4.8/5
- Digitally Downloaded: 4.5/5
- Gaming Trend: 85%
- Gamespot: 7.0/10
- Destructoid: 6.5/10
- Game Informer: 5.5/10
Danganronpa: Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls is due on September 1 in the US, September 4 in Europe and September 10 in Australia. There’s also a special edition of the game, available through NIS America’s online store.
