Spike Chunsoft hiring staff for ‘Danganronpa modeling and texture creation,’ mentions PS4, PS Vita, action

Danganronpa One More Another Episode?

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Spike Chunsoft is recruiting staff for “Danganronpa modeling and texture creation.”

According to the job listing, which was posted on November 13, the company is seeking a game programmer, character designer, and 3D designer who will “mainly participate in [the development of] Danganronpa.” The specific duties of the staff are said to consist of “character modeling” and “texture creation.”

The work environment section of the job listing reads the following:

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, PS Vita, etc.
  • Genre: Action, etc.
  • Tools: Maya, ZBrush, PhotoShop

The “etc.” part of each bullet can be a bit confusing, but at the very least it suggests a new Danganronpa action game is in development for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. The “character modeling” duties of the recruited staff also support that, as characters in traditional Danganronpa games are 2D.

The latest entry in the Danganronpa series, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (pictured), launched in Japan in January, followed by North America and Europe in September. While the Danganronpa series mainly consists of adventure games, it has seen an action game spin-off in the past with the release of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls in 2014.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
