In a recent interview with Siliconera, Script Editor Phoenix Spaulding revealed the School Life mode in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc will add a new storyline and gameplay features.
According to Spaulding, the School Life mode will be available after players beat the game for the first time.
You’ll have the choice to begin this mode, which explores what might happen if the students were all trapped in the school together but weren’t forced to begin killing each other. So this mode will offer a new storyline and new gameplay mode, and on top of that you will be able to hang out with students one-on-one to explore different parts of the school, as well as learn even more about them than you did during the main game.
When it came to the American translation of the game and conveying the spirit of the characters, Spaulding stated the following,
We approached the localization of this just like any other project, attempting to convey the spirit and tone of the story while still making it accessible for potential fans regardless of how familiar or unfamiliar they may be with the game.
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc will release for PlayStation Vita February 11th in North America and February 14th in Europe.
