Spike Chunsoft, the current developer for the Danganronpa series, recently announced on Twitter that they will be handling all of the publishing for the franchise in the future. At the same time as this announcement, the previous publisher, NIS America, revealed that many titles of the series will be removed from digital sales on PS4 and PS Vita from August to September. Because of this publishing change, there is no confirmation that the series titles will return to digital stores under this publisher. As it says on the PlayStation Store,
Select Danganronpa titles on the PlayStation Store will no longer be availible for purchanse from NIS America. Please refer to the dates listed below for more information on when each title will no longer be availible:
- Danganronpa Another Episod: Ultra Despair Girl (PS Vita): 8/31/2020
- Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS Vita): 9/4/2020

- Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS Vita): 9/25/2020
- Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS4): 9/25/2020
Currently, there is no reason as to why this publishing change occurred. This publishing change also does not mean that another title in the Danganronpa series would be coming sometime soon, as the creative director is currently working on Death March Club and Death Come True. However, the first game title in the Danganronpa series (Trigger Happy Havoc) has recently made its mobile game debut, with the other titles soon to follow.
Attention, students: Spike Chunsoft, Inc. will take over publishing for the Danganronpa series.
Please look forward to an official statement once details are finalized.
