NIS America has announced it will be spreading Despair onto the PlayStation 4 as Danganronpa 1•2 Reload will be coming to the platform in early 2017.
As you could safely assume, Danganronpa 1•2 Reload brings the first two Danganronpa games, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, to the PlayStation 4, making this the first time the series has made its way to home consoles in North America.
PlayStation 4 owners will be able to experience both games within a single package as it’ll be available for sale both in physical and digital formats. There’s no mention if the PS4 versions of both games will feature enhanced graphics or new features, although judging by the following trailer, it appears both games have received a bit of a graphical upgrade.
We’ve been big fans of the Danganronpa series and we encourage PS4 owners to consider checking out Danganronpa 1•2 Reload when it releases in early 2017. If you’re a fan of games like Capcom’s Phoenix Wright series, but wish it would involve high school kids murdering each other for survival, then you’ve come to the right place.

FUCK. YES. This series is fantastic and I hope it finds a larger audience on the PS4. The fundamental gameplay seems so bare bones and paper thin, but they're such engrossing games that hook the shit out of you.
If anyone wants to get the limited edition version, NISA has it available for preorder on their site right now:
Don't know if it's a NISA store exclusive or not, but the previous three have been.
More people need to play these games. Bought and played on Vita and then rebought on PC just to support the series. Would do it a third time if I had a PS4, no joke.
Bump to show more love for Danganronpa. You guys really need to play it and keep tabs on New Danganronpa V3.
