Danganronpa series sales top 200,000 in the westNIS America "shifting the system towards visual novels."
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa: Goodbye Despair sold a combined total of more than 200,000 units across North America and Europe, NIS America CEO Takuro Yamashita told MCV.
Both visual novel games were released for PS Vita last year.
“NISA is known for publishing niche JRPGs like Disgaea, but now we’re shifting the system towards visual novels after the success of Danganronpa,” Yamashita said.
An third-person action spin-off, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, is coming to PS Vita in North America and Europe this fall following its Japanese launch last September. Development on Danganronpa 3 is also underway.
