Death Come True

Death Come True, the newly announced full motion video game directed and written by Danganronpa creator Kazutaka Kodaka, will launch in 2020 in Japan, publisher Izanagi Games announced. Platforms are still to be confirmed.

Kanata Hongou (pictured above) will portray main character Makoto Karaki. Kanata Hongou also portrayed Danganronpa series protagonist Makoto Naegi in the stage adaption of the game, as well as Ryota Mitarai in the anime Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School. Here is the description of the character from the official website:

When Makoto Karaki wakes up in a hotel, he seemed to have lost his memory. He has no recollection of who he is or why he is in the hotel. By watching the news on TV, he learns that he is wanted for a series of murders.

Izanagi Games describes Death Come True as Japan’s first-ever “interactive content” that combines movie and game, where the story develops based on the player’s choices and there are several possible endings. Here is the company’s summary of the game:

The setting is a certain hotel. The protagonist Makoto Karaki (portrayed by Kanata Hongou) is wanted for a series of murders. But he has no memory at all. Under such circumstances, he has the miraculous ability to “Time Leap” and return to the past when he dies. As a criminal on the run, he will have to ask himself who he can trust and question the true nature of his own character. Through repeated decisions and death, aim to discover the truth.

The next character reveal for Death Come True will be announced via the official website on December 13 at midnight PT / 3:00 a.m. ET / 17:00 JST.
