"The High School From Your Nightmares"
The Vita has been getting some more attention lately, and one of the newest games to come out on the system is the Japanese original Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. This is a creepy little mystery game that plays out like a visual-novel. In the game, a group of Japanese students are locked up together in a high school. The only way to escape? Kill one of your fellow students.
Danganronpa takes a lot of visual cues from the Persona series. It works well, as the colorful environment feels unsettling when placed with the dark story. The anime-style characters are all unique and look great whether you are in a cut scene or just engaging in gameplay conversation. The soundtrack for the game works well too – the BGM tracks have been designed to keep that feeling of mystery and weirdness. As far as voice acting goes, you can choose from English or Japanese dialogue. I went with Japanese, and have not been disappointed. The voices are unique for each character and sound authentic.
The gameplay is a bit similar to the Ace Attorney series or Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward. There’s not a lot of action to be had, but that’s not the point of the game. Instead, you’ll need to listen carefully to dialogue, explore crime scenes, and then complete a Class Trial. Throughout the game, you can explore the high school in a first-person perspective. You can explore various items and interact with characters as you explore to move the story forward. You’ll also learn more about your classmates and fill out their “Report Cards” with more information. Playing can be a little slow at times, especially with all the dialogue, but you can save your game whenever to take a break from the mystery.
If you are looking for something a little different, try out Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. It’s a unique little game that’s perfect for anyone who loves a good mystery. Check it out on the PlayStation Vita, either with a physical copy or through the PlayStation Store.
