Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc launches in February, NIS America has announced.

Originally released in 2010 for the Japanese PlayStation Portable, Danganronpa is a murder mystery visual novel set in a school. The PS Vita version adds updated graphics, touchscreen functionality, and a new game mode. 

Here’s more, courtesy of David Alonzo over on the PS Blog:

“Imagine attending the most elite high school in the country, Hope’s Peak Academy, where only the best students get their education. Your classmates include the Ultimate Swimming Pro, the Ultimate Fashionista, and the Ultimate Baseball Star. And then there’s our main character, Makoto Naegi, who’s not much of an Ultimate anything.

“It’s hard enough trying to find your niche in a regular high school, but when it’s revealed that the students have been locked in by the headmaster of this school — a psychotic black and white bear named Monokuma – things get a little more complicated. The only way out is to murder someone and get away with it. However, if the other students unveil the murderer, he or she will have to endure a poetic death at Monokuma’s hands.

“The gameplay utilizes the investigatory elements of the Phoenix Wright series with the dark storytelling of games like 999 and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward. Throughout the game, you’ll gather clues and establish ties with other students. Once a murder happens, you’ll then enter the ‘Class Trial’ period, which consists of a series of adrenaline-laced, timing- and rhythm-based games, shooting down falsehoods and shining the light of truth in the darkest corners of the school halls. On top of that, you’ll build relationships with the surviving students. But keep on your toes, because nothing is as it seems! It’s just like high school, except with crazy bears and murder.

“So keep your friends close and your frenemies closer in this game of mystery and deceit. You’ll need your wits about you to reveal the killers and survive the deadliest high school you could imagine.”

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is out on February 11th in the US and February 14th in Europe.

I was interested in this since the moment I heard of it (actually I was watching the anime while playing Virtue's Last Reward and though it would make a good game if it was done like Virtue's Last Reward)..

But I doubt I will get this at launch (maybe if for some miracle it gets released under 20€..), because there's already to much stuff that I want and can't buy that will come out if the few next months (FFXIII-3, FFX/X-2 HD, Tales of HD Collection, and later this year Tales of Xilia 2.. and I still want KH1.5 HD collection).. I will be lucky if I end up buying more then 2 of those in the near future...
