In 2013, DanganMania was running wild. orenronen’s fan translation of the first game as well as his ongoing translation of the second had lead to an influx of SomethingAwful registrations, and the games were on the cusp of going from unknowns to being fully-localized. Mutual Killing Game Fever was all over Tumblr. I decided to make a satirical press release post about a hypothetical third game, mostly to make some goofy Photoshops and to make myself laugh. Mandy helped with several names and titles, all to service the joke of American Danganronpa. There are a few good jokes here, but one that seems to fly under the radar is that the title is a reference to Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Funnily enough, the idea of a Danganronpa In America would lead to a roleplaying campaign run by Mandy and myself that connected us with some people who would become our friends for life. Even if only like three people ever found this post funny, you can’t say it wasn’t worth it.


Spike Chunsoft announced yesterday a new game in their wildly popular Danganronpa franchise entitled Ultimate Dangan Ronpa 3: New Age of Despair. The Sony Playstation ®Vita-exclusive follows Super High School Level Detective Steve Nakamura as he is invited to attend the American branch of Hope’s Peak Academy, an academy where only the best and the brightest of their fields are allowed to go. They say that whoever attends this school is guaranteed a bright future, but things immediately go wrong for Steve when a strange being called “Monokuma” forces him and fifteen other students to participate in a dangerous and deadly game of despair! Sixteen Hope’s Peak hopefuls are trapped on campus grounds and if they ever want to see the outside world again, they must kill another student…and get away with it! It’s a spooky, strange, edge-of-your-seat thriller sure to please fans of the series. Here are just some of the students you will be spending your time with in UItimate Dangan Ronpa 3:

Super High School Level Missionary Anna Triple

Super High School Level Lawyer David Otunga

Super High School Level Cowboy Mark Sman

Super High School Level American Football Player John Residentevil
