Today, the offical Playstation YouTube channel posted an English language version of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls opening. The new trailer showcases the game’s two heroines Komaru Naegi, the sister of Danganronpa’s protagonist Makoto Naegi, and the gloomy novelist Touko Fukawa as they battle against hordes of robotic Monokumas — a mechanical bear who serves as the primary antagonist of the first Danganronpa game.
After being locked in an apartment for an entire year, Komaru is rescued by Byakuya, a super rich youth from the first Danganronpa, and finds herself in a city ruled by the Warriors of Hope. A group of RPG-obessed children who have vowed to turn the urban sprawl into a paradise for kids. Stuck in this living hell, Makoto and Touko — who have been deemed demons by the Warriors of Hope — must escape the city, learn the secrets behind the Warriors of Hope, and survive.
First released for the PSP in 2012, the Danganronpa series of visual novels has since grown by leaps and bounds, with an anime adaption of the first game being streamed in both English and Japanese in 2013, and an English release for the Playstation Vita from NISA hitting stores just last year. A sequel titled Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair was also released in English in 2014.
Dangaronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls hits stores on September 1st.
