New Danganronpa V3 has a completely new setting

"New" title doesn't follow existing characters and academy.

New Danganronpa V3

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has new details on New Danganronpa V3: Minna no Koroshiai Shin Gakki, first announced for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita at SCEJA Press Conference 2015 in September.

Like the title “New” implies, the world view of New Danganronpa V3 is completely new, and doesn’t follow the characters and Hope’s Peak Academy setting featured in the series thus far. The series’ mascot Monokuma and its basic systems, however, will be carried over.

More informaton is due out during the Danganronpa Project Press Conference on December 2. Of course, more information is featured in Weekly Famitsu, but it has not yet leaked. The magazine has an interview with producer Yoshinori Terasawa, and project planner and scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka. Next week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu will have additional new information.

New Danganronpa V3 is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan in 2016.

Thanks, Famitsu.
