i'm feeling we get a new spinoff of some sort. Might be Ultra Despair Girls 2 or something else entirely

Danganronpa ports to Switch would also be incredible. Especially if they add some new bonus gifts like Mario's hat or something like that.
Now that you mention it, a Ultra Despair Girls port for the Switch would also be cool. I'm not sure if this game can run on my laptop if I buy it on Steam so having a second option would be really handy.

Copy and paste the time in Google and you should be able to get the time in your timezone.

For me it's at 11:30, which is pretty early for me since I never watch live streams at this time, but I'll make an exception this time.
I just checked, and I got 5:30... in the morning.

Well, at least I'll have something to look forward to when I wake up.

So, I didn't see it for myself but if what my friends told me were true: it was just Danganronpa ports to IOS and Android devices. Neat I guess but it seems like if there's anything big it's gonna be spoke about in May, according to that tweet anyways,

Considering November will be the actual 10th birthday of Danganronpa, if a new game (be it a 4th one or UDG2) I think it will be announced and/or release that month (with it being revealed at some earlier news month.) Just my two cents on the whole news thing.

Okay, i just finished playing Dongongrampus Too : Arrivederci Misery

And i gotta say, i don't think i've ever been sucked into a game as much as this. Actually, i don't think i've ever been so invested in a story before.
I seriously couldn't stop playing the game, it truly felt like a proper sequel to an already amazing game and i can't wait to see what this franchise has in store for me.

Wow, you're one to hold a grudge, huh? I'll try not to get on your bad side...

Anyway, in case you decide to continue, I just so happened to find this handy little guide on Twitter, in case anybody needed it. Though I could've sworn a few of these weren't actually canon.

I guess the next step for me is Ultra Despair Girls, huh ? I heard the gameplay was very different from what we're used to for the fanchise, i'm excited to see what this is all about.

One final thing, i drew this little Smash x Danganronpa crossover thing, to try my hand at the Danganronpa style (More specifically, the closing argument comic style), thought you guys might like this sort of thing :

Alright, well that's all from me for today, i've never been more hyped for a Danganronpa character than i am now, i Hope one gets revealed for the second fighter's pass, or else i'll surely fall into Despair.

Welcome to the Remnants of Despair! Glad to have ya and to hear you had quite the good time with the Danganronpa series!

Also it now appears to me we have hit around 50 supporters if my counting is correct! Let us hope we have even more people coming around and say they support the inclusion of The Bear of Despair!

The RTC thread is currently rating Monokuma, but it's not just Monokuma...

This rating is also for the queen of despair herself appearing with him! Would you want Junko to fight alongside our favorite Despair-Bot? Or would you rather Monokuma fight on his own? Feel free to head on over to the Rate Their Chances thread and make your voices heard!

I think I'd prefer if it was mainly Monokuma, maybe with Junko showing up during the final smash and victory screen. Maybe her voice could be heard in one of the taunts?

Though I'm not sure why we're using spoilers when the RTC thread is already spoiling that there's a connection between them....

Not to mention if they were included together in Smash a lot of people in the gaming community would have that connection spoiled to them, so it probably would become less of a spoiler at that point.

Honestly, i think since the first game is 10 years old now, and future games and anime have outright said the forst games twist right away, then i feel its fine to say that stuff about Junko. There is a statute of limitations on spoilers, and as long as you arent outright screaming it, its fine.

I know I said it in my rating, but the direction the discussion is going prompts me to reiterate. I don't think it's fit to compare the spoilers of Danganronpa with those of The Legend of Zelda or Fire Emblem. While LoZ's or Fire Emblem's spoilers would take a bit away from the game's surprises, they can still be enjoyed as Action-Adventure/RPG games, respectively. As a visual novel, Danganronpa is about the story, making Danganronpa spoilers mean more than a spoiler from one of the aforementioned series. Since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a huge game, it, combined with the large audience that would spread it through word of mouth and maybe even the in-game tips section, would be essentially outright screaming it to the largest audience the Ultimate Duo of Despair has ever seen. With that in consideration, I wouldn't be so sure Sakruai would want to spoil such a glaring connection.

Well, I am currently making a Monokuma mod for Rivals of Aether based on the moveset I planned in this post, so at least you guys can look forward to that if everything goes wrong!

I know there's already a Monokuma in the workshop, but its style does not fit my vision, so I decided to make my own mod (although that is a pretty cool mod, kudos to the creator)

I already made most animations and implemented the basic movement options into the game, as seen here!

The Spears of Gungnir and some other attacks are already implemented as well, but the video does not show them. At least I can say it looks cool.

https://twitter.com/GhostaboArt/status/1244273152886267904

I altered a handful of moves, some because RoA is different from Smash and some because of personal taste. The Parry is going to be Monokuma holding a sword in a defensive position to Rebuttal the opponent (to reference some characters, some murders, and obviously, Rebuttal Showdown). The ftilt is Monokuma hitting the "execution button" with its gavel, causing a minor earth tremble. Maybe there's going to be a finishing move where a chain pulls opponents offscreen. Maybe there's going to be an aerial down special where monokuma dives to the ground to activate a seesaw plank.

Anyway, I will update you guys when it's finished!

Since we were talking about the concept of Junko fighting alongside Monokuma, I thought this might be interesting: the Identity V crossover revealed its characters (i don't play it, but I think they're skins and not actually them but I digress), which are Naegi, Kirigiri, Monokuma and... Junko. Not "Junko", but straight-up mastermind Junko. No hiding the connection with Monokuma at all.

I'm not sure if it's a definitive "yeah Junko can be in Smash", though, since mobile crossovers are often used to get fans of the IP into the mobile game, whereas Smash is meant to be a cross-promotion, inviting the IP's fans to Smash while also acting as an introduction for Smash players to the IP. Maybe that's just me, though. What do you guys think?
