Kill or remain trapped on February 11.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc will launch for PS Vita in North America on February 11 and in Europe on February 14, publisher NIS America announced.

The adventure game follows Makoto Naegi, an ordinary teenager accepted into the prestigious Hope’s Peak Academy, a school far from ordinary. Makoto’s classmates include Leo, the ultimate baseball star; Chihiro, the ultimate programmer; and Sayaka, the ultimate pop sensation. But Makoto isn’t the ultimate at anything.

When Makoto suddenly falls unconscious, he wakes up to find that an evil black and white robot bear named Monokuma has locked all the students in the school, and that the only way out is to kill another student and get away with it. If you’re outed, you’ll face his punishment.

NIS America marketing coordinator David Alonzo has a full post about the game on the PlayStation Blog. Give it a read.

  • Jesse

    Oh, Leo’s not correct; it’s Leon. ^^;

  • BizarreJelly

    Loving that box art – simple but nice.

  • futuristic_imagination

    Nice, at least I can pick up this game at the same time as LR:FFXIII.

  • TheExile285

    Is that the official box art? Looks nice. L

    Also, NISA is apparently unveiling a Limited Edition for this later today too.

    Yay! This is possibly the game that I’m most looking forward to at the moment. It’s great to have a release date.

  • MrFinalgamer

    that boxart is quite nice! can’t wait to play this game. hoping that we get the second game and the spin-off

  • Wolf Star

    Day one!! Can’t wait to play it ^^

  • Kayseur

    Ah so the European release date is that close to the US one? No need to import then, I’ll just pre-order it in my country. Oh and I like the boxart.

  • HanPaul

    Still bummed about the title, but, meh, been hyped on this game since the announcement.
    So yeeee!

  • Kefkiroth

    I’m disappointed that it’s full price, but hopefully there will be a limited edition so it won’t be a complete loss.

    • TheExile285

      Why? VRL was full price.

      • Wolf Star

        What full price?? it’s $39 right? Also limited edition?? Where??

        • TheExile285

          Full price on handhelds is $40

          Anyway, NISA said on PS Blog they’d update their website with a limited editon of this you could buy from their online store.

          Still waiting for them to unveil it…..

      • Kefkiroth

        You mean VLR? And Japan got DanganRonpa Reload 1+2 for full price though, I thought we would get it half price or at least $30.

        • TheExile285

          They are re-release in Japan not NA&EU. This is the first time this game is being localized so just like when the PSP game first came out in Japan it’s full price.

          If these games had already been released in NA & EU, that’d be different.

          • Kefkiroth

            Ah, good point about Reload being a re-release in Japan. Guess being full-priced over here isn’t that bad.

            It just felt like we were paying the same price for half of a product initially.

          • Elvick

            I hadn’t thought of that originally, but it did occur to me a bit later.

            Still hard to accept it though. :P

            But I’ll probably pick up the LE.

          • Sevyne

            Re-release in JP or not, it’s still a hard pill to swallow that we’re getting half of what JP got for full price. I’ll probably still get it, but I’m not really happy with the decision.

  • TheExile285
    • artemisthemp

      Happy to see NISA giving this game a special, since it means HDN Idol PP and Re; Birth may get a LE also :)

      Update: Just remember their may be DLC for those games.

  • Omega_Shiro

    Pummped! Really wanted to play 2 as well just import for now I guess.

  • ddsfan2

    Sounds awesome! I don’t know how an English version of a Chunsoft developed VN slipped under my radar, on the Vita to boot.

  • PrinceHeir

    getting this day 1!!
