The previously PlayStation Vita exclusive Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls will be coming to PlayStation 4. Both retail and digital copies will be available on June 27.
Unlike other Danganronpa games, Ultra Despair Girls is a third person action adventure game. Players will use a “hacking gun” to shoot enemies with “Truth Bullets”. There are eight different kinds of Truth Bullets which all have different effects on enemies. Some of the more normal bullets like Break and Knockback that do exactly what you think they might. Other bullets are more interesting like Dance bullets or Link bullets which allows you to control enemies.
Players will also control Toko Fukawa who appeared in the first game. She uses a stun gun until she fills her battery gauge. Once her gauge is full, players can switch to Toko’s murderous split personality Jack. In this mode Toko will be immune to damage and will be able to perform special moves once she builds up blood lust. Toko’s regular personality will take over once the battery gauge is depleted over time.
For those curious about the game’s story, Ultra Despair girl’s takes place between the first and second Danganronpa games. Komaru Naegi, sister of the first game’s protagonist, discovers a plot to kill every adult with Monokuma robots. When a mysterious stranger gives her a hacking gun, Komaru decides to confront the murderous robots and survive in a city full of despair.
