Starting at the end of next month, Danganronpa series publisher Nippon Ichi Software America will be delisting several of the titles from the PlayStation Store.
The games affected include Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls on the PlayStation Vita, as well as Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
|Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girl (PS Vita)||8/31/2020|
|Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS Vita)||09/4/2020|
|Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (PS Vita)||09/4/2020|
|Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS Vita)||09/25/2020|
|Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS4)||09/25/2020|
It should be noted that the list does not include the PS4 port of Ultra Despair Girls or Danganronpa 1•2 Reload, a compilation of the first two games released on PS4 in 2017.
NISA didn’t give an explanation for the delistings, just thanking their fans for supporting the series. However, it seems likely that it could be due to the fact that Spike Chunsoft started self-publishing their titles in the West. They’ve published PC versions of all four games on Steam throughout 2016 and 2017, most recently releasing iOS and Android ports of Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair, with Killing Harmony coming soon.
