Game developer Spike Chunsoft has just announced that popular Japanese murder mystery game Danganronpa is currently in development for mobile platforms.
Of all the games in the Danganronpa franchise, it is the three main titles, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, which are currently being developed as “Anniversary Editions”. It will come with an all-new user interface, improved touchscreen controls, along with a number of other updates.

Whenever a murder happens, you will have to investigate what happened and figure out who the killer was. Correctly guess who the killer is and they will be killed in a gruesome execution scene specially tailored to them, guess the killer wrong and everybody else dies while the killer gets to walk away scot-free.
