At Sony’s pre-Tokyo Game Show conference today, Spike Chunsoft released a new trailer for New Danganronpa V3, one that gives the first look at the visual novel’s 16-character cast.
The video, while brief, does show all members of New Danganronpa V3’s killing game, along with revealing protagonist Kaede Akamatsu, the first female protagonist in a Danganronpa game featuring the murder mystery format, but the second female protagonist overall after Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls.
New Danganronpa V3 is now set to come to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan in January, with no word on a western launch just yet. While the game is a numbered entry into the Danganronpa series, the story and setting will not be tied to the series’ original overarching story, which is concluding with an animated series Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak Academy.
