Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc PC Release Seems Imminent

A tweet from Spike Chunsoft's official twitter account implies you'll soon be able to savor the taste of despair on PC.

With each passing week, that leaked list of supposedly upcoming Steam titles discovered by NeoGaf users last year seems less like wishful thinking and more like stone cold prophecy. It's not an official confirmation just yet, but a recent tweet from Spike Chunsoft's official twitter account heavily implies that the excellent Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc will be the next game on that list to grace Valve's servers.

Obviously there's no information in the vein of "when" or "how much," but the wording does seem to imply that we'll be seeing the game on PC sooner rather than later.

For those who haven't played it, Danganronpa is a quirky Visual Novel-style adventure game about a bunch of kids trapped in some kind of prison school with a maniacal stuffed bear. The only way to escape is to murder another student and get away with it. The non-homicidal students have to root out and convict suspected murderers or they'll die too. It's tense stuff with a genuinely twisted sense of humor. Former Escapist contributor, Jim Sterling, gave it a smooth four out of five back in February of last year. There was an anime adaptation released a while back, but it honestly didn't do the game justice.

So for those keeping track, that's three games from the leaked list down. Using this data, I can say with one hundred percent certainty that Half Life 3 won't be announced sometime this year.

Yep, DR was in that recent steamdb leak so this was expected, S2 is on the way too if things go smoothly. Hope the games do well and V3 comes too, don't want to risk NIS fucking up with PSTV compatibility again.

Hey there's nothing about the superior sequel coming to pc (yet) plus the spin off ultra despair girls and the third game are all on or coming to vita, why yes I do greatly enjoy this series why do you ask?

Now all that needs to happen is put Persona 4 Golden on Steam and I will literally (literally) shit myself in excitement. It's a great time to own a gaming pc and next-gen consoles, because all of these last-gen or portable games or in the case of Dragon's Dogma, underrated games get a second life on PC.

Well, that means the dust on my Vita will only continue to gather.

Actually, the sequel was also on the leaked list, meaning it's likely on the way as well.

As for game related, Danganronpa has to be my biggest $20 mistake. It wasn't bad by any means; it was just a standard visual novel. Finishing it didn't leave me wanting to play Danganronpa 2.

I'd be excited to see 999 series making its way to PC though.

Now all my PC brothers and sisters can experience the awesomeness that is Danganronpa. Here's to hoping DR2, Another Episode and the future(?) DR3 gets to PCs.

Now if only Undertale would come to the PS Store... u.u

Danganronpa hot springs trip spin off confirmed?
