Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is a worthwhile new chapter in Spike Chunsoft’s now-beloved series about the struggle between despair and hope, bringing some legitimate twists and shocking surprising with it. It also, however, serves as a sign that Danganronpa may be running out of steam—and that this should perhaps be the chapter where we say goodbye to that adorable psychopath Monokuma.
Danganronpa V3 doesn't top the first two games overall. Its murder cases generally aren't as memorable, and its slow pace can make it feel flat in the middle. But as a sequel to those two games, it does a great job of tying the loose threads together and remaining surprising to the very end.
What we noticed most during our first foray into this new world was the updated look of the game. Sure, the format is still the same in terms of 3D worlds with 2D characters, but a lot more has gone into the style this time around. The UI is bathed in a neon glow, for instance, and onomatopoeic phrases pop up in a comic book style as well, all of which reminded us a lot of Persona 5, which had a very similar style to it. As you'd expect after five years, everything looks sharper too (we played on the PS4), including the definition in the characters and the 3D environments.
