The next entry in Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa series of visual novels/puzzle adventures, New Danganronpa V3: Everyone's New Semester of Killing, now has a Japanese release date. The game will be out for the PlayStation 4 and Vita on January 12th, 2016. On top of a whole host of retailer-exclusive preorder bonuses, there's a limited special edition for the game that comes with a custom-illustrated box, an original anime Blu-ray entitled Super Danganronpa 2.5: Nagito Komaeda and the Destroyer of the World that continues off of the Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy series, an investigation book for the new cast, a 2017 calendar, a code for a custom theme, and a Monokuma Strap that spouts different phrases when you push it. That's a whole lot of Danganronpa goodness: you can see the game's box art and special edition below.
