|Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo - Danganronpa Another Episode|
Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo - Danganronpa Another Episode (絶対絶望少女 ダンガンロンパ AnotherEpisode lit. Absolute Despair Girl Danganronpa Another Episode) is a spin off game based around the Danganronpa series.
Information and game play footage was first released at the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia Conference on September 9th 2013. The game will be coming out on September 25, 2014 in Japan for the PSVita.
This game seems to take place between the events of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Fans speculate that the objective is to secure the surviving members of Ultimate Despair.
Taking place half a year after the events of the first game, and before the beginning of the second game, the story focuses on Komaru Naegi, the younger sister of the first game's protagonist, Makoto Naegi. Following The Tragedy that took place one and a half years ago, Komaru has been holed up in her apartment in Towa City after the nefarious Monokuma took over the city and infested it with his robot army and loyal followers. Forced to flee into the outside world when a Monokuma robot attacks her apartment, Komaru comes across a certain someone who entrusts her with a “Megaphone hacking gun” which allows her to battle againts the robots. Teaming up with Toko Fukawa/Genocide Jill, one of the surviving students of Hope's Peak Academy alongside Makoto, Komaru soon comes up against the Monokuma Kids, a group of RPG-fanatic children who murder adults in the name of Monokuma.
Unlike the visual novel gameplay of the previous games, The game seems to be a third person shootergame with horror elements, in which players control Komaru Naegi, the protagonist of the game and the younger sister of Makoto Naegi. As she tries to survive in a city overrun by Monokuma robots. In the spirit of the previous game's Truth Bullets, Komaru is equipped with a hacking megaphone gun which turns her words into various types of ammunition. Using the megaphone, Komaru can issue attack or force commands onto enemy robots, causing them to short circuit or dance, or activate various types of equipment to solve puzzles. During the course of the game, Komaru also assisted by Toko Fukawa, one of the survivor from the first game, who carries a stun gun with her. When Toko changes into her split personality, Genocide Jack/Jill, she attacks with her Genoscissors (Razor sharp scissors). The game features three difficulty settings:
- Genocide Mode (The easiest)
- Trouble Mode
- Despair Mode
The difficulty dessigned for players who aren't used to action games or simply want to enjoy the story.
In Towa City, a group of five children known as the “Soldier of Hope” exist. They act as the leaders of the Monokuma Kids, a group of Monokuma mask-wearing children who slaughter adults. Like an RPG, each leader has their own “job.”
