Danganronpa Another Episode: Girls of Ultra Despair was not included in the recent four-game compilation, Danganronpa Decadence, which released on Switch on December 3.
For the most part, fans don’t seem to mind – games that we more traditional story games were included and Ultra Despair Girls is a third-person action adventure game, but fans who make the mind can change that.
According to an interview with Shun Sasaki, co-developer of the Danganronpa series, and Famitsu (translated by Nintendo Everything), a spin-off game may someday make its way to Nintendo Switch.
“I think the Nintendo Switch handheld mode will work well with the Ultra Despair Girls, which was the cornerstone of the Vita lineup, but there is nothing in development at this stage (laughs). The game deals with sensitive topics and we’re not sure if we can get it out on Switch. If the fans are loud enough, it will help make it a reality. If you want to see this, please speak up! “
The “delicate topic” that Sasaki mentions was the basis of the Danganronpa series, whose main concept is the brutal murders of teenagers, but, in particular, the “Ultra Despair Girls” are known for showing such difficult plots as the sexualization of children and pedophile characters. …
When “Ultra Despair Girls” first came out, it was not well received. Released in various forms between 2014 and 2017, the game sold only a fraction of the copies that Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc ran, and its Metacritic rating hovers around. 7/10… Nevertheless, the game has its fans, and now they must decide the fate of this game.
