The hit visual novel series from Spike Chunsoft known as Danganronpa branches out into the action genre this September with Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. In this spinoff, you will play as both Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa as they attempt to escape from the deadly depths of Towa City. It seems the city has been overrun by a group calling themselves the Warriors of Hope. The only way out? Slash your way through a seemingly endless supply of the bear-like creature known as Monokuma. Along the way, you must uncover the truth behind the mysterious forces that have taken hold of the city, and hopefully survive while you’re at it.
Aside from your trusty blade, players will also be able to blast their foes with a variety of different ammo with such special effects as Paralyze and Link. This ammunition can also then be upgraded through the use of unique Bling Bullet modifiers as well. But not all of your problems can be solved through the use of gunplay and a well-timed slash. Ultra Despair Girls will also challenge your mind with puzzles and traps just as likely to bring despair to players as the shambling hordes of enemies are.
Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls hits stores on September 1st courtesy of NIS America for us Westerners on the Playstation Vita.
