Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc has been confirmed as a Steam release in February

There was a rumor a while back that the Danganronpa series, among others such as Final Fantasy X & X-2, would be making their way to Steam but no actual confirmation was ever given. However, since now three of the games mentioned in the leak are confirmed as Steam releases I think its safe to assume that the rumor is quite true.

In today's case its the Playstation exclusive Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc that is confirmed as a Steam release for February, with the sequels most likely following suit afterwards. Here's the announcement trailer:


Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is best described as a murder mystery visual novel with plenty of adventure game elements and good ol' fashioned insanity mixed in. The story takes place in a school cut off from the outside world and in control of a deranged teddy bear who promises freedom to each student capable of murdering a fellow classmate and getting away with it.

The gameplay is split in to two parts, in one you explore the school standard adventure game style, talk with your fellow students and try to either gather clues or win them over to your side. In the other your participate in a mock trial and attempt to figure out who the murderer is without turning your classmates against you in the process.

I never had a chance to play it myself but it certainly looks interesting and has some good reviews backing it up so I'd suggest keeping an eye on Danganronpa.
