With their release of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc to be released on the PlayStation Vita in the first half of next month, Nippon Ichi Software America have opted to release a brand new three minute trailer for the game which highlights some of the gameplay concepts such as the “Class Trial” system, navigation around the campus and some of the…. unique punishments that await students that are caught committing murder.
Originally developed by Spike Chunsoft, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a PlayStation Vita port of “Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair” that was released on the PlayStation Portable exclusively in Japan.

It is set for release on the 11th February 2014 in North America and a few days later on the 14th February 2014 in PAL regions.
