NIS America has announced that the previously PS Vita-exclusive Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls will be coming to PS4. Not much about the re-release was announced, aside from a general release window of summer 2017.
There’s also a trailer for the PS4 release:
Ultra Despair Girls is a spin-off to the main Danganronpa series, an action-adventure game as opposed to the mystery visual novel-style gameplay of the two main games. The story is meant to serve as a bridge between them, and stars Komaru Naegi, the sister of the first game’s protagonist Makoto Naegi. She is joined by another survivor from the first game, Toko Fukawa, fighting through the broken world and trying to survive. If you want to know more about the game, you can read our review of the PS Vita version here.
