Series creator Kazutaka Kodaka is currently working on his next big project in the form of Master Detective Archives: RAIN CODE, but his previous work is always buried deep in his memory.
In an excerpt from an interview with TwinfiniteKodaka-san revealed that he always wanted to create new intellectual property after Danganronpa, but he’s still definitely ready to return to the school’s halls of Hope’s Peak Academy – or wherever Danganronpa takes him. He didn’t ask developer Spike Chunsoft about making a new entry in the series because he wanted to do something new, but that doesn’t mean it’s over:
“It’s not that I don’t want to make another Danganronpa game, but I have a lot of ideas and I want to create something new. Maybe someday I’ll be back. Danganronpa is more of a niche game and I’m currently working on more, but it would be great to return to Danganronpa at some point after that.”
The full interview with Twinfinite will be posted later, but this snippet gives us some insight into the Kodaka-san process. If you are a fan of his work and have seen anything from RAIN CODE, then you will see a clear Danganronpa influence.
