• The Danganronpa series is known for being fun, dark, smart and slightly scary at times. This version is no different. The evil bear has once again got a group of students for stem into an academy and the only way they can escape is by committing a murder and not been found out. This is a mix of social interactions a murder mystery game and a court room drama .Think ace attorney meets persona meets Cluedo. Killing harmony is just as brilliant as all the previous games, the writing is full of charm and humour and again I found myself having a lot of fun trying to investigate what has happened.


    The game is set in the Academy for gifted juveniles here there are 16 new students to play with. As usual the students wake up and I don’t know what’s happened with no memory of why they are there and how they got here. As the previous games each of the students has a weird and wonderful talent which will help or hinder their investigations. The headmaster of the academy as always is the evil bear MonoKuma. I don’t really know from program despair and who made him but they must’ve been just as crazy as this bear.

    The game proceeds as all the previous titles, you can walk around the school gather information on all your fellow students giving them gifts and seeing if they remember anything. After a while the students will get desperate and a murder will be committed it’s then your job to investigate how it happened after which comes a trial in which the guilty party is possibly found out. What I like about this series is the writing and the characters themselves. If you play this game properly and read everything you will develop bonds with the various characters and when one of them dies you actually want to find out what happened once the guilty party is found the evil bear will execute them in quite gruesome circumstances.

    As is the case with these types of games there is a lot of text to read and a lots of information to take in, if this does not sound like the type of thing you want to do then don’t buy this title because there is a lot to read and a lot to think about. If however you enjoy a more intellectual game with surprisingly twists and turns this may be the title for you. My favourite part of this is the class trials here is where most of the action occurs you must use the evidence that you found during the investigation as shoes bullets to shoot down any inconsistencies in The students arguments.

    I also like the fact that you can actually just lie but if you get found out that the consequences are not that great, there are also debates to undertake with the CPU providing pretty good opponents. The trials themselves can be very long but thankfully there are many games to break up the tone and these are usually quite fun most of them are simple but take away from the same pacing of the game. Graphically this is bright with very pretty anime drawings.

    Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is more of the same, if you’re a fan of the series this is a must buy because you’re have fun discovering new interactions and back stories. If you’re not a fan of the series I don’t think this will change your opinion because there’s a lot of text and a lot of reading to do.
