Very well regarded murder mystery visual novel Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair has received a release date for Steam. As you can see from the above picture, it’s April 18 for $29.99. The computer OS support within Steam for the game are PC (Windows 7/8/10), Mac (Mac OS 10.7+), Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 or later), which is great news. Often Mac and Linux support is much later than the initial PC release. Additionally pre-orders will net you a mini-soundtrack for free. Here is the Press Release.


Summer vacation starts early with the Steam release of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Pre-orders go live on April 4 and come with a bonus mini-OST.

  • Deadly Island Vibes: Murder is the only means of escape when you’re trapped on this island paradise.

I love this game, and consider it a must-play. So if you haven’t played it yet, definitely consider this title; it’s an amazing story. I will be purchasing it anyway to give me an option to play it on my large PC monitor, for that it is worth double dipping. Check back here for more information on this particular release and also anything Danganronpa. We have a lot of fans here at Operation Rainfall.
