Danganronpa V3’s free demo is suitably weird

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony [official site] has a free demo ahead of its full launch on September 26, and it's about as weird as you'd expect. You're trapped inside a school with an evil robotic bear called Monokuma, and the only way to escape is to murder a fellow student and get away with it by not getting found out during the ensuing trial. It's half-visual…
