Am I the only one who has faith in Another Episode being as good as the previous Dangan Ronpa games?

Not at all. I'm quite excited for this game myself.

Danganronpa: Another Episode is an upcoming spinoff game for PS Vita, featuring the sister of the first Danganronpa hero, Komaru Naegi, as its protagonist. In an interview with Famitsu magazine, Spike Chunsoft scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka talks about the upcoming action-adventure title.


Now that both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are out, Famitsu asks what kind of games the Spike Chunsoft writer would like to work on.


“I actually haven’t given much thought on things such as ‘I want to make it on this hardware’ or ‘I want to use this function,’” shares Kodaka. “As I’ve said before, I’d like to make a game that I’d enjoy if I were just a regular player.”


Famitsu then asks if that was one of the foundations that went into the creation of Danganronpa.


“That’s right; at least something very similar to that,” replies Kodaka. “I really wonder what I’d think if I were a regular player. In the future, when I become about 80 years old, after forgetting that I ever made this game, I’d really love to try it out for myself.”


As a follow-up question, Famitsu asks if Danganronpa: Another Episode is a game that the scenario writer has personally been wanting to make.


“Yes, I’ve always wanted to work on an action-adventure title, and also write a scenario for one, so I’m expecting the title to be a new challenge in both regards,” responds Kodaka.


“Games have become much cheaper compared to the Super Famicom days; however, that doesn’t mean people are lightheartedly buying them all, so it’s a given that popular series tend to sell better. With regard to that, I believe that Danganronpa has a good start, but now that the anime and such has made it more popular, now is the best time to go on an adventure with a spin-off title.”


“Rather than making a sequel or spin-off that doesn’t have many differences [from the original], we’re making the game with the challenge of wanting to go further than what fans would expect.”


Next, Famitsu asks how far along in development the spin-off game is.


“The game is still in the midst of development, but the plot is pretty much done, and we’re currently in the phase of making it into a scenario,” reveals Kodaka. “I recently showed the plot to new staff members, since I felt that the mood is a little different compared to the first two games, and thought that the scenario would also feel different, but I was relieved and glad to hear them say ‘It’s Danganronpa, all right.’”


“For an action title, the game will have quite the scenario volume, and I believe that fans will be pleased. As a spin-off title, it’ll be different from the first two Danganronpa games, but we’re going for something that has the characteristics of the series, which I believe we’re doing a good job approaching so far,” Kodaka adds.


“For now we also have some action parts to finish up, but there will be new characters, and we really want to show them to you guys. Please look forward to our next announcement.”


Danganronpa: Another Episode is currently in development for PlayStation Vita.

Here's another interview about the game and a bit of DR3

Spoiler:
Image

First up - Naegi Komaru’s little character blurb.

Image

Naegi Komaru (CV:???)
Naegi Komaru is one of the player-controlled characters, a female high school student whose defining characteristic is the streak of hair sprouting from the middle of her head. She can use a special megaphone to shoot a variety of “Word Bullets”(Kotodama) such as “Break”, “Dance”, “Move”, as displayed in the bottom left corner of the screen. If these word bullets happen to hit Monokuma, they’ll have different effects corresponding to the bullets’ contents.

Image

-What was your reasoning behind making Naegi’s sister, Naegi Komaru into the protagonist for this game?
Kodaka: Since this is a story taking place between 1 and 2, we chose a character that had already made an appearance in the beginning. Also, it was important for said character to be someone outside the school.
-Does Komaru happen to have a special talent that she’s utilizing through the megaphone?
Kodaka: No, the megaphone itself is special. Komaru herself does not possess any SHSL talent.

Image

-The person accompanying Komaru is…
Kodaka: I wonder. (laughs)
-I think I’ve seen a strikingly similar character from 1…
Terasawa: Well, I think it’s extremely obvious to the fans, but it’s not something we can reveal yet.(bitter laugh)
-I see. (laughs) I’ll look forward to when you do. In the promotional video, there was a scene where this character spun around and attacked her surroundings, but is she a playable character?
Kodaka: She is. This character and Komaru are the two playable characters, and player control will switch between them as you proceed.
Terasawa: I think you’ll experience a different sort of action than with Komaru and her megaphone, so I hope you can enjoy the difference.

Image

-The game is categorized as ‘action adventure’, but what sort of action will it be?
Kodaka: We’ve based this game on what’s commonly known as TPS(Third-person shooter). And we don’t just want you to aim and shoot - we plan to include a lot of gimmicks that take advantage of the surrounding city itself.
Terasawa: We want to include some elements that even the less action game oriented fans of Dangan Ronpa can enjoy.

Image

Image

Slightly larger images of Genocider Syo, her scarf and skirt are torn, according to her character blurb.

Image

-You’ve mentioned that the story takes place between 1 and 2, but when exactly is it?
Kodaka: The midpoint between 1 and 2, I’d say. The game is set in a certain city, and the city will be central to the developments that occur. The screenshots this time are not finalized versions yet, but the story’s going to be about a city dominated by Monokuma.
-Will other characters from the two games make any appearances?
Terasawa: That would certainly be a cause for celebration. But since it’s Kodaka we’re talking about, who knows. (laughs)
Kodaka: I’ll keep that a secret for now.

The two of them also talk of DGRP3 as being in the preparations stage, with no finalized scenario as of yet. The ‘also…3’ announcement was twofold - a reassurance to old fans that Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo is just a spinoff and not representative of the overall direction the series is going to take, and basically a way to pressure Kodaka and the DGRP team to make DGRP3. Kodaka sees it as being developed alongside Zettai Zetsubou Shoujo.

I'm little disappointed. I was hoping that Komaru would be the SHSL imouto.

Wow, this game looks soooo awesome, I really hope the first one sells well so NISA thinks about bringing SUper Danganronpa 2 and Another Episode here! Is this more action-adventure or survival horror?

Action-adventure. More like third-person action games.

Oh! Pretty cool then! A survival horror would've been great tho', hope it happens someday! But I can't wait to see more gameplay :/ Really want this game to com over, there are not a lot of Vita exclusives, and this one seems really interesting.

Very nice but I do hope in SDR3 they actually add in Multiple choices, depending on what you pick you get different endings. Wish they did that in the first game! I wanted to save [houk edit: spoilered for character deaths]

Anyways I am excited for the 3rd one.
