    Spike Chunsoft has just shown off a trailer for New Danganronpa V3: Everyone's New Semester of Killing, as well as announcing there will be an anime followup called Danganronpa: The End of Hope's Peak Academy, showing the events that take place after the first two games in the series; Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.

    Going off a loose translation of the video, Danganronpa V3 takes place in the "Gifted Inmates Academy". Exploration Segments and Class Trials seem to be making a return, where you will be using "your own lies" to win arguments.

    Hmm... at 1:21 it's showing first-person, dungeon crawler-like gameplay... wonder if it's gonna take some gameplay from Ultra Despair Girls.

    I wonder what supernatural explanation will make all the nonsense seemingly logical this time. My bet is on aliens and a despair nano-virus.

    Anime that takes place after the first two games? Where's an adaptation of Danganronpa 2? :(

    Search "Goodbye Despair Let's Play" on Youtube. I mean, come on, I've heard of and can understand people complaining about rehashing old content, but why on earth would you not want more story?
    The MC (well, the character I'm assuming is the MC) looks robotic. Possibly a cyborg or android. Maybe
    Chihiro comes back to help fight evil robots (other than the normal evil robots like Monokuma).

    I did watch the walkthrough of the whole game already, but having an anime named "Danganronpa 3" right after an anime named simply "Danganronpa" kinda leaves a gaping hole in between.

    Edit:

    Might as well post the main visuals for the game and anime, since the OP seems to have forgotten:

    From the looks of it, though, they'll cover different content. Naming the anime "Danganronpa 2.5" would make more sense, I admit, but Spike Chunsoft is a video game company, so video games come first. It'd be kind of silly to enforce an all-or-nothing anime policy.

    The game won't continue the Hope's Peak Academy plotline tho, it'll be a complete new story. I think there's enough difference between the names Danganronpa 3 and New Danganronpa V3.

    Them not sharing the same plotline is my point. Also... if people can't wrap their heads around the difference between 3DS vs N3DS and Wii vs WiiU, what makes you think this'll be any different?

    Darn it, now I really need a vita to catch up with dagan2.
    I am almost scared to ask (because I don't want any spoilers), but did anything happen to togami and genocider.
    Because I did not see them appear in the anime trailer.

    You have quite a while to catch up (either through a Vita (or PSTV for WAY less money) or by watching a Let's Play on Youtube) since it won't be out until next year, and probably won't be localized until 2017.

    what i truly wonder is why makoto has a robot body(unless its a robot replica)

    reguardless i cant wait.

    heres my theory green hair is monoca and shes older so its quite some time later from ultra despair girls i assume since nagito said he was gonna make her a better junko at the end of Ultra despair girls. i assume makoto had a reason he had to get a cybernetic remodel.

    I don't think that's Makoto, it's probably a new character.

    I'd have to agree. They like to make main characters that look eerily similar. Honestly, when I first started Goodbye Despair, I thought Makoto returned.

    I thought Nagito was Makoto, seeing how they're both lucky, and their full names contain the same letters (and they kinda look alike lol)

    I'm sure the name thing was intentional, either to play on the fact that Nagito is lucky, to act as a simple red herring (since they like to mess with people's minds), or both. I never actually knew about the name thing until you mentioned it. Now I'm tempted to go back and see if I could find any other anagrams...

    Damnit, I'm pretty disappointed that a fucking anime will conclude the original Danganronpa storyline. It's like making Zero Escape 3 an anime only. Why not release both as games and Danganronpa 2 as anime adaption? And is this green haired chick on the poster Monaka or what? I hope that Nagito will make his return in some way or the other. He pretty much owned the last two Danganronpa games.
