Danganronpa 3 in ‘very early’ development

"The scenario isn't written yet."


Danganronpa 3 is in ‘very early’ development, according to series writer Kodaka Kazutaka.

“Until everything’s been written, there’s nothing that’s set,” Kazutaka told Polygon at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. “So to answer your question, it’s still very early because the scenario isn’t written yet.”

According to Kazutaka, it’s common for the game’s story and characters to change several times while in development.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair launched for PS Vita in North America and Europe last year. Each follows a different high school student trapped in closed-room scenarios with their only chance of escape being to murder their classmates.

An action game spin-off, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, is due out for PS Vita in North America and Europe this fall.
