Product Details:

DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a revised and revamped edition of a title originally released on the PlayStation®Portable in Japan in 2010. You'll take on the role of Makoto Naegi, a desperately average teenager who somehow finds himself accepted into Hope's Peak Academy, a prestigious high school normally reserved for the nation's "ultimate" students. But when he arrives, he and the other students soon find themselves trapped in a battle for survival against a twisted mastermind who has taken them all prisoner. You'll have to unmask the villain and uncover the secret of the school...or die trying!

Daily Life, Deadly Life

Trapped in a school-turned-prison, students are murdering each other one by one. You'll have to investigate each incident, search for clues, and talk to your classmates to try and get to the bottom of each brutal case!

Mock Trial

The nefarious Monokuma serves as judge, jury, and executioner as you engage in deadly wordplay, going back and forth with suspects, dissecting their statements and firing their words back at them to expose their lies!

Popularity Contest

Sway classmates to your side in each investigation, squeezing information from them to figure out who did it. And when you do, turn up the heat in a variety of timing and reflexbased game systems to uncover the truth and save your skin!

Bilingual In-Game Voices

Experience authentic gameplay with original Japanese language/voices or new English language/voices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Game This game is absolutely amazing. I love the visuals and the storyline. Not to mention the music which will stick with you long after you finish the game. Danganronpa is the perfect thing for anyone who enjoys a good mystery plot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Annoying Game This was probably one of the most annoying games I have ever played. The only reason why I played it is because I wanted to know how the story followed from this game through Ultra Despair Girls. What annoyed me was the core of the game play, the trials: THEY WERE WAY TOO LONG!!! Seriously, the trials were too repetitive, and the Truth Bullet system was too finicky. If you didn't refute an argument with precise aim then you'd have to go through the dialogue ALL OVER AGAIN, which became old, quick, especially if one (or more) of the characters had annoying dialogue (like Hifumi). One of the other main problems was with the length of the trials and the inability to save during the trial. The trials lasted anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours, but part of what makes them last so long is the dialogue. The final trial lasted longer than it needed to because it was drawn out with dialogue. By this time I was already fed up with the game, and the final trial made me realize that I was not going to replay the game. The game though does have some good qualities, its main one being the great story behind it. The story was very good and at some point I would like to watch the anime to it. The characterization was great, and despite the tedious trials, in the end you really started forming a bond with the characters. Unfortunately, the story wasn't enough for me to really enjoy the game whole heartedly. The fact that this is a visual novel doesn't detract from the poor game play. I can see that the visual novel medium has potential, and I am sure there are games out there that have made great use of it, this just isn't one of them. No, I would not recommend this game to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Annoying game The only reason why I got this game is because I wanted to know some back story to Ultra Despair Girls. The story, overall, was entertaining, and was probably the games strongest point. It does a good job of letting you get to know who the characters are and feeling a certain bond towards them. I'm not going to go into what the game is about since it already explains it in the summary of this page. What annoyed me about this game was its core game play, the trials. They were WAY TOO LONG, repetitive, and the tediousness made me wanna throw my Vita on various occasions. The might have been a little bearable had the game given the option to save during a trial, but it did not. Most trials lasted anywhere from 1.5 hours up to the final trial which took me 4 hours to complete. Of that four hours, about 1.5-2 hours was devoted to the actual trial itself, the rest was just long drawn out story that really was not necessary. By the time the game ended I really didn't care any more about the story was just relieved to have it over with. If you already have a pre-disposition towards visual novels I would recommend this game since there is a certain appeal that some might like, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This game is AMAZING! This game is much fun. The gameplay will keep you enthralled for hours, the only flaw being that sometimes walking from floor to floor can be an annoying waste of 20 seconds. The voice acting, music, and overall sound of this game is perfect! It truly captures the atmosphere perfectly, and makes you excited whenever something happens. The art style of the game is beautiful. Sometimes the same facial expressions may be used and you can tell, but overall it's gorgeous. As soon as I finished this, I immediately went for the second one. Play it now! And if you can, buy both; you'll want to play the second right away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A visual novel that should be given a chance First off, if you don't like visual novels, either stop reading if your not open minded or read on if you feel like giving the genre a chance. Alright, if you're still here, let's get started. The story IS the game. I'm not going to summarize it, but I will say that every character (yes, even the typical ahoge protagonist), has great chemistry and the amount of satisfying twists is mind blowing. The gameplay is a mixture between pointing out contradictions in people's arguments and beating mini-games to proceed with the Class Trials. The sound department is good. Not a lot of the tracks can be played without gameplay accompaniment, but the VAs are great. I think the dub was very nicely done and even if the JP cast is made up of seiyuu celebrities, I suggest you at least give the dub a shot (you can change later if you want). The graphics have an interesting way of putting 2d spirites into 3D enviroments, making all the characters look like cut outs. At least the images and cutscene stills are crisp though. So there it is. A great game. But what should you do if you finish it? Plat it. Usually, as you earn trophies, you'll learn more about the characters and the story is so good you wouldn't mind sitting through it more than once. The one truly terrible part about this game is the Monokuma machine. It's a machine that gives you gifts to give to the various characters but the gifts you get are largely random, and you can only get one gift at a time. It's a boring aspect that did not need to be in the game. Other than that though, buy this game today. Don't listen to those people, who give it anything below a six. There's a different between not being a preferred game and being a downright bad game. Danganronpa may turn out to be a former for some but it is not the later.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rent it or watch the anime I read all the reviews of other people thinking the game would be much better than it actually was. I enjoyed the heck out of the game untill I beat it in less than 4 days of playing of about 5 hours a day. I do not recommend buying this game at its full price, or for half price at that matter because once you beat the main story you only unlock "school mode" which allows you to finish filling out the character's report cards and get two hidden trophies. I found that in school mode the character interaction was very basic and lackluster. It felt worse than grinding in a midrange budget western rpg. Overall, I would say the best way to play this game is to rent it or get it used so you can take it back within a week of buying it.
