A new trailer has been released for Danganronpa 1・2 Reload, the PS Vita compilation port of the first two Danganronpa games. Danganronpa 1・2 Reload will be released for Japan on October 26th. A PS Vita remake of the first game will be released in North America early 2014.

Danganronpa is an urban fantasy murder mystery game in which a group of students are trapped in Hope’s Peak Academy by a mysterious being called Monokuma. Monokuma tells the students that they will be trapped in the school for the rest of their lives unless one of them kills another student and gets away with it. If the other students can’t pinpoint the murderer, the latter gets to graduate and the rest are put to death. If the students uncover the culprit, that student is executed and the cycle continues. The protagonist must work with the other students if they want to survive and uncover the true mystery behind the academy. The second game has a similar premise but takes place on a tropical island.

This game sounds insanely creepy and very intriguing, with a really unique artstyle. The trailer is below so you can step into the world of Danganronpa yourself.
