As the release date nears for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, yesterday afternoon NIS America has released quite a few new screenshots to keep us hyped. The screenshots released show new Truth Bullets and new images of the many Monokumas that will be awaiting our arrival. The latest batch of screenshots shows the power of the eight types of Truth Bullets that will be equipped and ready to shoot. The Truth Bullets include Break, Burn, Dance, Detect, Knockback, Link, Move, and Paralyze. They allow the player to control Komaru and use these to traverse Towa City.
Differing from the previous two games in the franchise, Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair, Ultra Despair Girls is the first to introduce third-person shooter action to the series. This time, the protagonist is a female, Komaru Naegi, who is Makoto Naegi’s little sister, whom we remember as the main protagonist of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. The events that unfold, take place after the events of the first game, Trigger Happy Havoc. We have the run down of the story details HERE, in case you have missed them.
Tomorrow marks exactly one month until the release of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls and the wait feels like an eternity! To keep occupied, we have plenty to read, such as our E3 hands-on impressions of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, Kinda Funny’s interview with series creator Kazutaka Kodaka, and even our review of the original game in the franchise, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Plus, we will keep you posted on any and all news that’s released until the game’s launch on September 1, 2015, as both a physical copy and digital release for the PlayStation Vita.
