    Day one buy. I love my PS Vita more and more each day as more Japanese games getting English translation.

    • ayb_91

      I’ll never get tired of this theme song.

        Sexual Themes, really? I guess the females are going to be murdered in the changing room, during a hot yuri scene.

        • Raiyu

          huh…

        • Elias Villa Estrada

          Uh wha?

          • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

            How are there Sexual themes in a game about people getting murdered? >_> Look at the ESRB rating.

  • Elvick

    Waiting for LE announcement.

    • orzorzorz

      agreed, i can’t imagine it’ll be much longer since D4R’s LE was released a little bit after it’s date was set

    • Raiyu

      alright announced $60 on NIS Store.

      • Elvick

        Awesome, thanks. Going to preorder~

  • orzorzorz

    i sure hope none of the cute girls are murdered in outrageous ways

    or do i?

    • z_merquise

      Well if you played the 1st game, every characters were killed in a very bloody way, even the cute girls.

      • orzorzorz

        that’s the joke

        • z_merquise

          Oh okay, then.

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks like i need to buy the first game and finish it in preparation for this one!!

    Though i still need to finish Ace Attorney Justice for All. Shame about the change of story when Capcom US fucked up the localization.

  • The Moeshit

    I like Hajime, Akane, Sonia, Souda, and Kuzuryuu the most.

    I hope they will be the survivors.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    “Ultimate Breeder”
    ….Wait….what??

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Added in the trailer and stuff. Left the house after posting this and NISA didn’t’ say anything about a trailer when they sent out the original news. =(

  • Budgiecat

    With these characters, they could actually make a decent JRPG spin off if they wanted…

    • The Moeshit

      This second installment is actually more like a JRPG since you have level grinding.

      Oh, and you can recruit a “party member”(only one) to help you in the trial. Though you won’t know if your partner turns out to be the culprit of the case him/herself or that he/she will be the victim in the next case, so your partner of choice might not stick around for long.

      • Budgiecat

        yeah….still not the same thing..

        • The Moeshit

          Still kinda funny since you wouldn’t expect level grinding in a fucking visual novel. lol

          • Budgiecat

            it’s in Megazone 23: Blue Garland for PS3

  • MrFinalgamer

    Wut!? Why is mah “bro” Byakuya in here!? Goddamit! He better survive this time too! Though, chances are he won’t ='(

      After completing the first game with the platinum, I can’t wait to play the sequel! I wounder if the after school mode will be a lot easier than being tedious in Dangan ronpa 1.

      • Wolf Star

        I can’t wait for the 2nd game too!! I still haven’t platnuim the first game and I might do that before the 2nd game comes out.

        • $61526767

          Good luck with that. I hope you can handle how tedious and time consuming it can be. Look up a strategy guide in order to get 4-5 endings in one playthrough.

          • Wolf Star

            There’s multiple ending?? :O

            • $61526767

              Yup. Technically, you have to fill up everyone’s meter with hearts by selecting the correct choices. If they have a really good time, you’ll gain a full heart.
              If you want access to school mode, beat the main game first. It took me a while to finish and reload multiple files to complete each task, ending, etc. :P

              Best way to do this is, by farming the same location over and over again until you see a full heart on the person you’re spending time with. You can check out your relationship status by asking Monokuma.

              • Wolf Star

                Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it.

    • PrinceHeir

      Damn it i’m not sure if i should get this since i missed out the first one and it would feel weird that my 2nd game is LE while the 1st is not.

      • Wolf Star

        Well I missed out on the 1st game LE since it was out of stock. Hmm well I want it since they won’t make them anymore :/

  • azureknight

    The sunglasses are useless to me, wish it was a Monokuma hat or something. I was planning to get this, but rather save that extra $20 to get something else
