It’s currently the end of winter in Canada, and while it’s been a rather mild one I’ve still been dreaming of destination resorts, warm sand, clear oceans, palm trees… you get the idea. For those also craving some tropical flare in life, I bring you salvation: Jabberwock Island! All you need is a PC to get there. Oh, but you should know that murder is the only way to leave the island. That’s right: following the success of Danganronpa’s recent PC release, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is also coming to Steam.

In Danganronpa 2, you and your classmates have been trapped in a game of kill-or-be-killed on a tropical island. As your classmates start dropping like flies it’s up to you to solve each murder by searching for clues and interviewing those lucky (or is it unlucky?) enough to still be alive. There are new minigames where you go tête-à-tête with your classmates. If a student is unconvinced, though, you’ll find yourself being challenged to a one-on-one Rebuttal Showdown where you must defend your stance. Use timing- and reflex-based game systems to reveal the truth and escape from paradise with your life.
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair will be released for PC via Steam on April 18, with pre-orders starting April 4. Anyone who pre-orders will receive a bonus 11-track mini-soundtrack for free. Like its predecessor, it will run on Windows, Mac, and Linux system.
