Danganronpa Decadence Will Pass Judgement On Nintendo Switch This Christmas

Danganronpa Decadence, a collection that sports all three Dangonronpa games, is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Christmas.

First revealed at E3 2021, the collection now has a release date of December 3rd. It will be comprised of anniversary editions of the original three Danganronpa titles, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary EditionDanganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition, and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Anniversary Edition. 

There’ll also be a boardgame style extra dubbed Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp, which features the series’ various characters interacting with each other. Curiously, Danganronpa: Ultra Despair Girls, Danganronpa’s first-person spin-off is entirely absent.

If you’ve never played a Dangaronpa game you’re missing out. Despite their cutesy, neon-tinged veneer, they’re absolutely brutal; think Ace Attorney meets Battle Royale. In each, a group of students is imprisoned by a malicious robot teddy bear, Monokuma, and the only way to escape is to murder another student and get away with it. Meanwhile, the living students have to figure out who’s responsible, through evidence gathering and trials.

Not convinced? Then click here for our six very good reasons to play the trilogy. The trilogy is currently available on the PlayStation 4 and the PC, having begun life on the PlayStation Portable. But this is the first time the series has hit the Switch.

You’ll have to wait a little while to pass judgement, however, as Danganropa Decadence won’t be arriving till December 3rd (along with individual versions of each title available through the eShop). Or if you really want to get decadent, you can pick up the collector’s edition.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
