Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp Gameplay Details Unveiled

When Danganronpa Decadence, which is a collection of four Danganronpa titles, launches onto the Nintendo Switch later this year not only will the title contain the original three Danganronpa titles redesigned for the Nintendo Switch but it will also include an entirely new title known as Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp. This particular game is an expanded (full length) game based upon a mini-game in one of the previous entries.

Long story short, what was originally a mini-game is now a full fledged stand-a-lone title with its own story and extensive list of cast members, and to cement this fact Spike Chunsoft have provided some new details on what to expect from the game.

Development (Boardgame):
The main part of the game in which players will develop their character over 50 days (50 turns) of summer camp on Jabberwock Island. Roll a die to determine how many spaces to move. An event will be triggered depending on which square the character lands on. Each character has various stats, including level. Character stats improve by leveling up, stopping on a Growth Square, or interacting with other characters on Event Squares. Bosses placed by Monokuma and monster battles triggered by Battle Squares will impede the player’s path along the way. Talent Squares grant Talent Fragments, which grant characters new skills. Players will also need to acquire weapons and armor at shops and treasure chests as well as utilize cards featuring useful effects to their advantage.

Battles A Battle Mode can be played separately from the Battle Squares found in the boardgame. Develop characters and form a party of up to four members and take on the 200-floor Tower of Despair where Monokuma-type monsters await. In the Tower of Despair, enemies attack in waves, and the player is rewarded with Monokuma Medals upon victory. Players need to increase their characters’ levels while learning skills and gearing up their characters in order to emerge victorious.

School Store
In the School Store, players can spend Monokuma Medals and Monocoins they’ve obtained in battle to gain new characters and support items using the MonoMono Machine. Each character has different rarities, and the higher the rarity, the faster they will grow in Development mode.

Event scenes:
Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is the dream crossover of previous Danganronpa characters in other 1,000 event scenes. The 60+ playable characters include every Ultimate Student from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy HavocDanganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, as well as the main cast of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, in addition to Monokuma and Monomi. Players will only have access to the protagonist of each title at the beginning, but they will obtain more character cards as from the MonoMono Machine as they progress through the game.

The new trailer highlighting each one of these included in Danganronpa Decadence can be found below, with the games due on 3rd December 2021 within Europe and North America.
