Danganronpa wasn’t rumored to hit Xbox so this shadow drop is very stunning. This has been a very pleasant surprise for Danganronpa fans. There are quite a few differences when compared to the original version of the game. The Anniversary Edition supports a gallery in which players can see and live through character events again, dialogue, and sprites. There’s also an Ultimate Gallery that adorns the game with promotional illustrations and character sheets from the game’s genuine art book.
What Makes The Danganronpa Anniversary Edition Special?
This original Danganronpa was first released in 2010 on the PlayStation Portable. Here’s a little about the anniversary edition via the official PR:
The first entry of the series introduced the killing game between trapped high school students and the Class Trials where they weed out the killer. This entry drew widespread attention for its shocking setting and steadily grew in popularity with its cast of loveable characters, mysterious story, and talented voice cast.
The Anniversary Edition features a gallery where players can listen to character voices, as well as view character expressions, in-game illustrations, and character references.
In the acclaimed series, you must use high-speed deductive action to expose a murderer. It all starts when Monokuma, a self-proclaimed headmaster, traps extremely talented high schoolers from around the world inside his academy. To escape, Monokuma forces the students to play a killing game and identify the murderer in twisted Class Trials. When a body is discovered, you will investigate, gather evidence, and question your classmates before the turbulent spectacle of a Class Trial.
As you determine who to refute, the fully-voiced arguments by classmates add to the tense atmosphere. Class Trials combine deduction and action elements to create an exciting gaming experience unlike any other.
For a decade, the Danganronpa series has solely been a part of the PlayStation and Steam biosphere. Hopefully, we see more of the Danganronpa games and other hit Japanese titles come to Xbox moving ahead. Xbox has been making all the right decisions recently. It may urge Playstation and other giants to invite Asian titles on their platforms.
