DanganRonpa investigating bad bear on Vita in 2014

Awful creatures, bears. They look all cute and fuzzy, then they imprison your class in a nightmarish version of your school and tell you to murder each other if you ever want to leave. Or that's the plot of DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, anyway, an Ace Attorney-ish adventure game which NIS has announced it's bringing over from Japan to Vita in "early 2014".

DanganRonpa will have you investigating murders in the awful school, searching for clues, befriending classmates and questioning them. Then you go to trial, where the naughty bear Monokuma is judge, jury and executioner, according to NIS. It has "a variety of timing and reflex-based" mini-games in the investigations, so you're not just selecting text.

It's developed by 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors creator Spike Chunsoft.

Here's a trailer from the Japanese version, which launched on PSP in 2010:
