New Danganronpa 2 trailer introduces Hope’s Peak Academy’s new class

NIS America has released the first English trailer for Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, which introduces the sequel’s new Hope’s Peak Academy high school class.


In the game, sixteen new students go on a school trip to the deserted tropical Jabberwock Island for, as their teacher calls it, a "lovey-dovey, heart-throbbing school trip." None of that pans out as the devliish robotic bear Monokuma appears and entices everyone to kill one another. Get away with murder at the Class Trial and you can leave the island. If you’re found guilty though, a horrible death awaits.

Each Hope’s Peak Academy student is the "ultimate" best at a particular skill or field. Check out the screenshots gallery to see your classmates’ various claims to fame.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair lands in North America on September 2 and in Europe on September 5. The first game is among one of the Vita’s best and most unique titles. Check out our review of the original game here.
