Danganronpa Sells 200,000 in the West
A sign of things to come?

If you're looking for a drama filled visual novel for you Playstation Vita, you can't go wrong with the Danganronpa series. The two titles have become cult hits in the West, but now we're finally learning just how many copies have actually been sold.

Danganronpa Scary Face

Takuro Yamashita, CEO of NIS America, revealed that the combined sales of Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair total more than 200,000 across the US and Europe. This certainly seems to bode well for a Western release of the next episode called Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls (a spin-off title) and Danganronpa 3, which is currently in early development.

Many of the other editors on the site have been urging me to try out the series given my recent love of visual novels, so maybe it's finally time to take the plunge. You should check out John's reviews for Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair, and be sure to stay tuned for new information on the series as we get it!
