Hope's Peak Academy is a government-funded private high school recognized all across the nation as the cradle of hope and prosperity, providing a complete education for "ultimate" students of all stripes.
Thanks to a national lottery, one extremely lucky but otherwise ordinary student—Makoto Naegi—has been chosen to attend this prestigious institution.
But when Makoto arrives for his first day of class, he suddenly falls unconscious, and when he wakes up he finds himself in a classroom within the school—with the windows barred and the doors locked. As he explores the abandoned, dirty halls, it becomes clear that something is very wrong. He and his new classmates make their way to the gymnasium, where a demented robotic bear, calling himself Monokuma and claiming to be the school's headmaster, makes a declaration: "You're all going to be living here from now on. If you want to go free, your only choice...is murder."
And so...fifteen high school students gathered from across the country have been imprisoned. Their strength, their commitment, their very humanity will be tested time and time again. Why must they clash in these class trials? Who's the mastermind behind it all? And what is this shadowy figure really after? The battle against the looming, invisible enemy known only as despair is about to begin...
The stage is set at Hope's Peak Academy, a private high school where the nation's most "ultimate" students come to fulfill their potential.
Hope's Peak lives up to its name as the hope of the nation, and it's said that once you graduate, you're set for life. However...the life waiting for the newest group of students is one of despair, where death and torment become commonplace. These ultimate students will face the ultimate test, and their unique abilities will be pushed to the breaking point...and beyond.
In "Danganronpa" you'll dive into a series of class trials and expose the lies and contradictions of your classmates in order to find out who's behind each grisly murder. In each trial, you'll have to use the evidence and testimony collected during your investigation to literally shoot down your opponent's assertions. By combining logic and motion, "Danganronpa" offers an exciting and unprecedented gaming experience.
This game contains both logical puzzle-solving elements and fast-paced action elements. Accordingly, you can adjust the difficulty of each aspect—logic and action—separately. Adjusting one will have no effect on the other, so you're free to tweak the game according to your preferred playstyle.
By placing 2D illustrated characters and objects in a 3D space, the game creates a unique multidimensional setting. WIthin this environment, the camera work and motion animation helps to fully realize a remarkable 2.5D approach and provides a more stylish, engrossing world to explore.
The Steam version of the game supports Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud and Steam Trading Cards.
