NIS America announced today that Danganronpa 1&2 Reload is releasing in early 2017 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, and available through retail and digital stores for $39.99 USD, the bundle packages together Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.
There will also be a $59.99 USD Limited Edition available exclusively through NIS America’s store. In addition to the Danganronpa 1&2 Reload game, you’ll receive a 40-page hardcover art book, a 2-disc soundtrack (27 tracks in total), Monokuma sunglasses, a Monokuma coin, a “Sorry I was born stupid” sticker, and a Collector’s box.
Here’s the description for Danganronpa 1&2 Reload, which doesn’t say if there will be any changes to the games for PS4:
Danganronpa 1•2 Reload brings the first two Danganronpa games, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, to the PS4 for the first time ever in one exciting package.
In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, enter Hope’s Peak Academy, a prestigious high school reserved for the nation’s “ultimate” students. Things get a bit twisted when the academy’s students find themselves trapped inside with Monokuma, a maniacal bear who has taken them all prisoner to play his deadly game of despair.
Continue the adventure in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair with a brand new cast of Ultimates. Mysteriously trapped on Jabberwock Island in their own life-or-death game, having fun in the sun with this twisted teddy requires more than a bit of wit to survive.
- Two Mystery Adventures in One! – For the first time ever, experience two of the greatest visual novel adventures in one package for the PlayStation 4!
- Monokuma’s His Name, Murder’s His Game – Challenge your wits and discover a tale full of deadly twists and turns with one of the most memorable and iconic villains in gaming—Monokuma.
- Hope and Despair – You’ll find yourself gripping the edge of your seat as you experience a world packed with crazy characters, mysterious murders, clever clues, and games of logic all culminating in life-or-death decisions in the ultimate game of hope and despair.
In the announcement post, NIS America’s Jordan Vincent said, “Is there more to come? We’ll see! Puhuhuhu…” With New Danganronpa V3 set for release in January 2017 in Japan for PS4 and PS Vita, this could be a tease that a localization is on the way.
Will you be playing these PlayStation Vita games for the first time on PS4?
