    Danganronpa writer Kodaka Kazutaka has told polygon in an interview that development of Danganronpa 3 has started, though it is in very early stages. The script hasn't been written yet and everything can change at any given time. According to him, half of the japanese players want a new fresh story while the other half want a continuation of the existing story. NIS America already expressed interest in a localisation of a third installment.

    I also hope it'll be for the Vita, it's my 18th birthday this year, and I'm finally planning to buy New 3DS and Vita from the money I get xD

    I didn't realize this was a game series. I know it's an anime listed on hulu.

    I predict they will release it for the Vita. A 3DS version is unlikely, but I reckon with super-stable 3D on it would look pretty cool.

    Other than the Android port of the first game, the series has been mostly Sony exclusive so far. Wouldn't surprise me if it's a Vita game. Anyway, I do kind of want to see it as a continuation of the series' overall plot. Though I haven't finished 2 yet, something tells me the second game was just the beginning of the bigger picture. It'd be a shame if they just let it end there.

    I can easily count the second game as one of the very few I can call "Masterpiece" and I can't see how an installment wouldn't be a continuation of the original story.
    I didn't finish the second 100% yet (still working on it but would very much like not to wait for an English version >.<

    Could you please share a link for the Android port?
    This is the first time I hear about this and I wouldn't mind playing it again.
    I searched the Play Store and nothing other than the OST came up.

    Its only in Japan, thus, you won't find it in Google Play unless you find a direct link to the app in the store (even so, Google play won't let you install it).

    If they do decide to go in a different direction, I think it would be pretty easy if rather than catching the murderer, you had to murder someone and get away with it. That said, I want a continuation. Playing the second game right now and loving it. I will preorder this as soon as a localization is announced

    If the murderer isn't caught, they get to escape and everyone else dies. That means it'd only involve one case, or multiple cases, each with their own 15 member cast. I mean, I can understand a new story, but completely switching the game mechanics?

    I mean near the end, not the beginning. Have it the same but for the end of the game killing someone, but rather than trying to solve it, trying to throw the other characters off. Probably a better idea for a spinoff, but it'd be an interesting concept in the very least

    It's Japanese only, unfortunately. I only learned about it because Uchikoshi-san (man behind 999 and Virtue's Last Reward) posted up a link about it on his facebook page.

    That's fine. You're entitled to your opinion. But why are you posting here then?
