Dangan Ronpa 2 Release Date: Sequel Coming To The United States In 2014

The Dangan Ronpa 2 release date has been announced shortly after the launch of the original title in the United States.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, the unique hit for the Vita, Dangan Ronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, has garnered enough popularity in both Europe and the United States to get both an EU and NA release of its sequel.

From what is being announced on numerous video game websites, the title of the sequel for the Vita is known as Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. The game is originally developed by Spike Chunsoft, the same company responsible for the original game in the series as well as another game very similar in gameplay titled Zero Hour: Virtue’s Last Escape.

In the initial game, students are thrust into a high school setting and are forced to kill if they want to escape. In its predecessor, the premise is exactly the same except now it takes place on an island known as Jabberwock. From there, the game’s events will unfold just like in the first game.

The sequel has already done well in Japan, peaking at number 5 on the local charts. Reviews have the game have also been very positive, with scores ranging from nine to 10 out of 10.

Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is estimated to release for the Vita around the late third quarter to early fourth quarter of this year. This places the Dangan Ronpa 2 release date window between the months August to November.
