FAQ

What is Danganronpa?

The premise of all three core games is the same. 16 high-achieving high school students are locked in a series of killing games. Each game has a different set of characters trapped in an establishment. To escape from the establishment, they must kill another student and not be found during class trials.

The games can be divided into two different gameplay styles. The first is School Life, where the player moves through the story. The second is Class Trials in which the player must expose the murderer.

There are two sections to the School Life gameplay: Daily Life, where the player advances into the story, and Deadly Life, which activates when the crime scene is discovered.

Daily Life features dating sims, while Deadly Life requires that the player investigate the crime scene to find clues and evidence.

Are Danganronpa characters minors?

Although the characters of Dangaronpa appear to be minors, they entered Hope’s Peak at 16 and had 2+ years of forgotten memories which would have made them 18+. All students are likely to be adults. While this seems to be true for the first two games of the series, there isn’t any clear information regarding the third.

Are Danganronpa characters Asian?

Most Dangaronpa characters, especially those from Japan, are Asian. Sonia, who is from Europe, and Angie, who might be an ex-resident on a fictional island, are the only exceptions.
