In a somewhat weird turn of events, Danganronpa V3 - the next title in the series that's expected to launch in 2016 - won't continue the story of the first two games, which largely revolves around students from the prestigious Hope's Peak Academy. Instead, the overarching plot will be resolved in an anime known as Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy, which will air next year in Japan.
So, what the heck is Danganronpa V3, then? Well, it'll apparently feature a whole new storyline that's set in the "Gifted Inmates Academy". And, like in the previous non-spin-off titles, gameplay will involve a mix of investigation and class trials. It's also worth remembering that it'll be the first game to launch on PlayStation 4 as well as Vita.
Fortunately, a brand new trailer's been released that sheds some light on what we can expect from the upcoming instalment. It features fresh gameplay footage, and looks just about as crazy as ever. We've also gone ahead and included the anime's trailer for all of you hardcore 'ronpa fans, so be sure to tell us if you're excited for the new breed of Monokuma in the comments section below.

Loved the first game, I have the second in my library waiting to be played so this sounds like great news (although I would have liked another game that finishes the story arc of the first two). Still more proper Danganrompa is a great thing, that shooter spin-off game did not appeal to me in the slightest
The DanganRonpa Hype is too huge. They NEED to port the whole series up to the PS4 and get someone to publish all those novels the west is missing out on.
@WickedKnightAl I think a PS4 port collection would make a lot of sense before V3 gets released.
Kinda Disappointed that is doesn't carry on. Only because I love the English Voice acting in the games. The anime VAs were changed in the Funimation Dub (some good some bad) and the anime was rushed to hell. I'd rather have a full fledged game . Obviously still excited, its Danganronpa!!! Cannot wait for it to be dubbed and localised, hopefully in 2016!
I was hoping they would make an anime for 2. Oh well :/
What Danganronpa 3 anime? But Danganronpa 2 anime still wasn't released...
