User Reviews

an amazing game with a unrealistic reality show that commits crimes for fame and love
30 October 2019 | by leonybvyvSee all my reviews

With an ungodly amount of content, Danganronpa v3 actually, and amazingly, once again improves upon the series formulaic "Killing Game" and extra modes. By adding new mechanics and improving old ones in Class Trials, vast improvements to freedom of movement, some really unique plot twists and turns, an entirely new cast of characters, more fun minigames in the story, and even MORE extra modes (including an RPG mode with characters from previous entries in the franchise that could almost be its own game), Danganronpa v3: Killing Harmony is simultaneously a love letter and a brow beating to the fans, revealing in their despair while simultaneously mocking them for their thirst for more bloodshed.

I was upset at the first trial...because some of your opponents were right (espically Ryoma), and yet you fight back with lies; without knowing it from the start, after many characters were acuused, something abominable happened to Kaede! The Mastermind & Monokuma killed her, because she was innocent! For a reality show that kills off innocent people!

Damn you, Tsumugi! I can't stop crying for hours over the last trial. The thought of fiction being slavery, doing nothing to change the world, (it's not slavery and fiction does change the world in real life). I was literally wailing, drowning in a sea of sadness, in DESPAIR! A despair so horrible that you'd feel as if you wanted to die, no matter how strong willed you are!

While it was likely meant to be a masterfully crafted send off to the series, I can't help but suspect there's more Danganronpa down the road for developer Spike Chunsoft. Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair saw them truly finding their footing in the universe. Danganronpa v3 saw them perfect their craft.
