Get Ready for Thrills, Chills, and Kills with Danganronpa Mobile Ports
[Update: 4/21:] This morning, Spike Chunsoft's English Twitter account tweeted the Danganronpa Anniversary Editions for mobile will be heading West as well. The original story follows below.
Spike Chunsoft's cult-hit Danganronpa series is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. As part of the celebrations, the developer announced Danganronpa mobile ports are happening for all three mainline games.
Famitsu broke the announcement, with translation done by Gematsu.
Known in the West as Trigger Happy Havoc, Goodbye Despair, and V3: Killing Harmony, the three numbered Danganronpa games on mobile will feature a number of alterations and new features. Each will also get the additional subtitle "Anniversary Edition" attached. The spinoff games Ultra Despair Girls and Cyber Danganronpa VR aren't included in these Android and iOS ports.
The mobile Danganronpa games will get a user interface overhaul, along with touch controls. They'll have galleries galore you can access at any time as well: an event and voice-over gallery, an artwork gallery, and a gallery for in-game illustrations.
As of now, there's no word of Western releases for the Danganronpa mobile ports. But since this is a primarily Japanese celebration for the series, it's possible announcements for Western versions will come later.
Speaking of celebrations, the Danganronpa 10th anniversary celebrations have only just begun. Among other things, Spike Chunsoft is hosting a livestream on the third Thursday of each month with new information about the series, so there may be more announcements on the way.
