The lights are on
The original Danganronpa, an adventure game about high school students trying to kill each, didn't make waves in the U.S. when it released, but those who played the game didn't seem like they actually wanted to kill anyone, so it must be good news that NIS America is bringing Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair to Sony's PS Vita later this year.
Much like the first game, players will assume the role of a group of high school student who have to fight for their life as they use their wits and teamwork to survive. Each student was chosen for their special skills, which make them the "ultimate" example of something. For example, Ibuki is the hyperenergetic ultimate musician, and Kazuichi is the ultimate mechanic who can fix just about anything, and when he can't he tends to have panic attacks.
Our own Kimberley Wallace enjoyed the first game, so this is good news for adventure game fans. Check out the trailer above as well as some images from the Japanese version of the game below. Originally released on PSP in Japan, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair will release on Sony's PS Vita on September 2.

excited about this!
Can't wait for more Danganronpa. The first one is one my favorite games of the year.
So many good Vita games this year. I can't keep up.
I Almost Bought A Vita For The First One, With The Second One Coming Out It Looks Like I Have No Excuse Not To Now..... Sorry Money.
I find Byakuya's body figure to be hilarious now. Haha!
It sold quite well here actually
I loved the first one, so I'll definitely be picking this up. A second season of the anime has been teased, as well.
*throws money at screen*
day 1 buy!
good news for vita owners...congrats you two!
Loved the first one! Good news just keeps coming for the Vita. Persona, Disgea and Danganronpa games would be enough for me, but keep the great games coming!
if you plan to buy this (and you should) do everything you can to avoid spoilers.
I hate to be the "This is old news" person, but this was announced on Playstationtrophies.org almost a month ago! Haha, oh well. You guys are still at least pretty great with how fast you get news out, and will always remain my favorite video game website!
