Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc was only released last week but already NIS America has confirmed that its sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, will launch exclusively for PS Vita in North America and European territories this autumn. The game will be available as both a packaged and digital product in both regions, and once again revolves around a high school student who must solve his classmates’ serial murders in order to survive.

This time around players will find themselves in an exotic location called Jabberwock Island which houses just as many mysteries as Hope’s Peak Academy did in the first game. Here’s an extract from NIS America’s press release detailing some of the sequel’s key features, along with some screenshots from the original PSP version of Danganronpa 2:

Deadly Island Vibes: Murder is the only means of escape when you’re trapped on this island paradise. As your fellow classmates start dropping like coconuts, you’ll need to delve into each murderous incident, forage for clues, and interview your classmates to reveal the opportunity, motive, and means behind each killer case!

Tribal Council: You’ll go head-to-head in all new minigames with the other students during the Class Trial, shooting down their false truths and using your evidence to uncover what really happened. But watch out! If a student is unconvinced, they’ll challenge you to a one-on-one Rebuttal Showdown and force you to defend your argument!

Survival of the Keenest: Match up your evidence with your fellow classmates’ arguments and determine who’s really telling the truth. Once you’ve got a suspect in your sights, turn up that tropical heat in a variety of timing- and reflex-based game systems to reveal the ultimate truth and escape with your life!
