Can’t say we didn’t see this coming, after the slip-up the other day, but it’s official now: NISA has picked up Danganronpa 2 (Siliconera article, press release) and will be releasing it for the PS Vita this fall.
Anyway. As we said we would back in July, with NISA’s announcement, we’re stopping work on our translation of the game. As huge fans of the series, we couldn’t be happier that SDR2 is getting an official release. While we do wish we could have been involved in some way, we’re confident NISA will do a great job–and far quicker than we could have possibly managed.
So, what does this mean for Project Zetsubou? Well, we’re planning to finish off the second half of Danganronpa/Zero first, and the Kirigiri novels are still on the table too–we just haven’t had the chance to get our hands on them and see if they’re something we’d like to work on. We also have a few non-Danganronpa project ideas we’re juggling, so we won’t be disappearing anytime soon.
