Danganronpa Comes to Steam

February Release

Spike Chunsoft has been dropping clues and now it’s time for the big reveal: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc fires onto Steam this February! The fast-paced murder mystery will be the first of many titles we plan to publish via Steam.

We also launched a Twitter account and Facebook page to bring our games and developers closer to the English-language community. Our door is open to discuss our plans for Steam and future projects.

Game Overview

Hope’s Peak Academy—home to the nation’s best and brightest high school students…and your new prison. You and your classmates have been trapped here, forced into a winner-takes-all killing game. You’ll have to solve the mystery of the school to survive, but be careful what you wish for—sometimes there’s nothing more deadly than the truth…

Game Features

Daily Life, Deadly Life: Trapped in a school-turned-prison, students are murdering each other one by one. You’ll have to investigate each incident, search for clues, and talk to your classmates to try and get to the bottom of each brutal case!

Mock Trial: The nefarious Monokuma serves as judge, jury, and executioner as you engage in deadly wordplay, going back and forth with suspects, dissecting their statements and firing their words back at them to expose their lies!

Popularity Contest: Sway classmates to your side in each investigation, squeezing information from them to figure out who did it. And when you do, turn up the heat in a variety of timing and reflex-based game systems to uncover the truth and save your skin!
