UPDATE [07/29/2020]: Spike Chunsoft confirmed on July 21st that they will be taking over publishing for the Danganronpa series. As details are being finalized it’s possible that the games will still be unavailable for a time. Thanks to Vita Paradisa for posting the news. Our original post follows.
NIS America announced this week that several of their Danganronpa releases will be removed from sale on the PlayStation Store through the end of September. The delistings come with the end of publishing terms between developer Spike Chunsoft, but it’s already assumed that Spike will re-publish the titles on their own. It could take a while for them to reappear on PlayStation but in the meantime you can grab these games on Steam and on physical media. NIS’ announcement and dates follow:
“Select Danganronpa titles on the PlayStation™Store will no longer be available for purchase from NIS America. Please refer to the dates listed below for more information on when each title will no longer be available. We want to thank all of our Ultimate Fans who have joined us for many exciting years of mysteries, deadly puzzles, and unforgettable characters. Puhuhuhu!“
