That game is Zanki Zero: Last Beginning.

Feature: Fourth wall breaking murder-bear

The joy of Danganronpa’s Monokuma Theatre

Villain monologues: forever a trope to make the eyes roll. I tend to skip through them as quickly as I can, waiting my inevitable escape. I don’t enjoy self-aware villain monologues either; they’re even worse because the villains know that they’re clichéd yet they do it anyway. I'd prefer it if they just immediately murdered me instead. Danganronpa, a visual novel/detective adventure in which a…

Danganronpa: the murder mystery visual novel series in a class of its own

Bear with me if you've heard this one before: Danganronpa [official site] is a game about teenagers locked in a high school, driven to murder one another by a robotic bear. A tale as old as time. The eye-catching premise partly explains how the series has captured the attention of even those who would shy away from the majority of visual novels. The third game…

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.

It's half-visual…

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls bringing robobear-busting to PC

Both of Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa wacky horror visual novels arrived on PC earlier this year, escaping through the portal from Consoleland, and now their spin-off is following too. Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls [official site] is quite different to those other two, mind. While they were murder mysteries with trapped students investigating killings incited by a robobear, Ultra Despair Girls is more of a…

Phoenix Wrong: Danganronpa – Trigger Happy Havoc

Whenever I hear someone talking about the bizarre brilliance of the Danganronpa games [official site] I'm tempted to stick my fingers in my ears and run as far away as possible. The only current English language release is on the PlayStation Vita, a device just below pocket spiraliser on the list of things I'm likely to buy at any point in the near future, but…
