Danganronpa 1.2 Reload Announced for Western PS4 Release


Publisher NIS America have announced that they will be releasing both Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair as a remastered collection for the PS4 early next year.

This collection, which will be known as Danganronpa 1.2 Reload, will feature both PS Vita games revamped for the PS4 Console with new additions including 1080p visuals and a slightly rebalanced interface.


This PS4 variation of the game(s) will also include a Dating Simulator known as School Mode (for Danganronpa: Tigger Happy Havoc) and Island Mode (for Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair) whereby players will be able to interact with characters from each respective game and attempt to date them.

Synopsis: Get two of the best murder-mystery adventures in one! Whether you’re trapped in school in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, or stranded on an island in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, you’re sure to have a thrilling time!

In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, enter Hope’s Peak Academy, a prestigious high school reserved for the nation’s “ultimate” students. Things get a bit twisted when the academy’s students find themselves trapped inside with Monokuma, a maniacal bear who has taken them all prisoner to play his deadly game of despair.

Continue the adventure in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair with a brand new cast of Ultimates. Mysteriously trapped on Jabberwock Island in their own life-or-death game, having fun in the sun with this twisted teddy requires more than a bit of wit to survive.

Further information surrounding Danganronpa 1.2 can be discovered on the official website; which also hints at the possibility of a Limited Edition bundle that contains the game, soundtrack CD, artbook, Gold coin, Pin Badge and sunglasses all presented in a special collector’s box. It’s unclear if this Limited Edition bundle will receive a European release (as it may turn out to be a NIS Store Exclusive) but it’s one to keep an eye out for.

Danganronpa 1.2 Reload will be released as both a digital download and a physical product onto the PS4 early next year.

    So the Dating Simulator is the only new feature? Do they have DLCs?
