About This Game

Hope's Peak Academy is home to Japan's best and brightest high school students—the beacons of hope for the future. But that hope suddenly dies when Makoto Naegi and his classmates find themselves imprisoned in the school, cut off from the outside world and subject to the whims of a strange, murderous little bear named Monokuma. He pits the students against each other, promising freedom to anyone who can murder a fellow classmate and get away with it.
It's up to you to find out who Monokuma really is, and why you've been taken from the world you once knew. But be careful what you wish for—sometimes there’s nothing more deadly than the truth...

Key Features
  • 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 reflex-based game systems to uncover the truth and save your skin!

  • Steam Features: Supports Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud and Steam Trading Cards.

Truly amazing game, the story is well thought out, all the characters are amazing, the trials are really fun and you have to put in your logic to solve the murders. Just everything about this game is fantastic, you must play it for yourself

OBJECTION! ...Whoops, wrong game.

Anyways, back on track, this is a great game, and the trial mechanics were fun to play. Forget about the anime adaptation. The game far surpasses the anime. You can feel despair in 60 FPS.

Great game!

Played it on the Vita the first time around, and purchased on Steam to get more JRPGS on the platform. Totally worth it.

i highly recommend this game, as said by other people it is a mixture of the ace attorney games and battle royale, along with its own unique features, such as being able to walk around the map in a 3d environment rather than your average point and click game. the trial system is also extremely fun

Bought this just before the sale, but I'm not salty at all. Thoroughly enjoyable game with an addictive story and soundtrack. Must-buy for Phoenix Wright or Zero Escape fans.

The only game I have found that is a mixture of Battle Royale, Ace Attorney, and a sheet of acid.

I fell in love with a man who had a corn cob for hair.

He then murdered the innocent cinnamon roll while his boyfriend cried in the background.


I don't know who to trust anymore.

To whoever plan on playing this gem of a game, a word of advice: do NOT look up anything about it online before you've finished it. Once you get spoiled there's no going back

If you like Zero Escape, Ace Attorney, or the Visual Novel genre in general, you should give this game a shot.

Game is great - not too much reading or too little action. It actually mixed them well.
Hangman's Gambit was kind of not needed as a mini-game. A little bit too easy, at least.
Storywise it's very satisfactional, excluding the very last 1-2 minutes of the ending.
The anime adaptation sucks ♥♥♥ compared to it's source, but that usually happens.
Highly recommended game. ( Unless you're not into VN or anime-like games. )

The best Ace Attorney game for the PC.
Colourful and interesting characters.
Interesting overarching story where you\'re introduced to everyone within the first \'mission\',
Really fun trial mechanics.

Stumbled across this game by browsing roleplaying steam section. God if i just knew what a gem i was missing. For people who played ace attorney series or 9 hours 9 persons 9 doors i can nothing to add just buy it. But for others who never watched an anime, played visual novellas and keep wondering who the fukc are all those geeks with anime avatars giving this game almost perfect 100% score i will try to elaborate)
Visual novela in most cases is living embodiment of story driven game played as the book with pictures in the background and music. But the biggest problem is quality- overwhelming quantity of them are made as eroge. You read a tremendous amount of text to finally get that girl that you saw on the scrennshot. That sums up in brief 90% of all visual novels) But there is always an exception when some autors try to step up from genre boundaries. And thus we can see the appearance of titles like fate stay night/clannad/ umineko and ext. Their overall quality of plot/ charachters is so high, that they get immediately converted into anime/manga and its paper counterpart.
Danganronpa on the other hand same as ace attorney or 999 series is def among the best. But unlike others top notch novels those 3 share 1 thing in common. They actually have a gameplay elements which are trials, investigations and puzzles( mostly 999 series). And this mishmash between heavy text focused story and gameplay create such a huge profound immersion into the game that even best recreational books wont be able to deliver, Especailly in this particular one. Trials. That are well made. always keep up with good story and where you actually can try and recreate whole situation of how the murder was unfolded.
Overall i could spout for a few pages about this game, but il be brief. I loved it and i highly reccomend it.

ok heres my first time writing a review on a game.first of all ,danganronpa is a visual novel based with elements of walking around and find clues through the investigation to find out who murder who,i would totally recommend people who are tryin out on visual novel for the first time but is hesitating to play dis game .Its has a fusion of a visual novel some mystery and adventure.oh and if u are still hesitating u can go watch the anime but i would not recommend so since the anime does contain the plot twist in the visual novel(its a adaption)hence after watching the anime then u go buy the game will result in the plot twist in the visual novel not as twisty as it is. the anime isn really that good compared to the visual novel ,the anime just serves as a ''promotional'' anime to allow people who like the anime to also buy the visual novel after so i guess the anime cant be toooo good or else not much people will be willing to buy unless u are become a danganronpa fanatic just by watching the anime


P.S:fk dis review i wrote dis just to demand ffrom the steam god and spike chunsoft to release ultra despair girls:another epsidoe so i can have the imoutoooooo its all abt the imouto imouto imoutoimouto mootooomototoo anyway bye-yonara
