How bad is the localization of this game? I'm currently playing DGR2 and the localization is quite iffy and americanized, played the fan translation of 1 which although not perfect was far better than this. I'm hesitant to play 3 if the localization is as bad as people make it out to be even though I won't pay for it.

From a quick search, someone on the Steam forums mentioned that the following things are referenced in the game that weren't originally there among others

>MAGA

>Fake news

>Bane

>Michelin

>Spongebob

>Homestuck

>South Park

>DBZ (over 9000)

>Shrek

>Doge

And making a character speak like a caveman for no reason because he talked in third person originally.

Alright. Let me spoil it for you. It's been a little while so my memory might be shit.

>Folklorist

No. He's killer of third case. Very creepy and fujoshit bait.

Is murderer in the second case. Is extremely religious.

>Supreme gentleman Ruler

Wild card liar. Dies in the second last case.

>robot

Is literally a deus ex machina. Also lives.

>Pianist

Is the protag and murderer of the first case.

>Nursery School Teacher

Actually an assassin and hates kids. Is the main ally along with astronaut dude.

>Tennisman

Gets killed in the second case and is guilty of his previous crimes or some shit.

>Magician

She's accused of killer but does nothing notable outside of that.

>(((Inventor)))

Totally not Ibuki.

>Entomologist

Correct and is the killer of the fourth case thanks to ruler dick mind control.

>???

Actually is the survivor of the last game. Also is the victim of the first case.

>Detective

Actually is Kirigiri 2 and you're playing him case 2 onwards.

>Astronaut

Absolutely spot on.

>Aikido

I literally forgot about her.

>Cosplayer

Almost spot on. She's the real ringmaster and kind of Junko 3.0 Also. v3 stands for 53 and it's about the developers want to end the franchise in totally not End of Evangelion bullshit meta story. Enjoy your ending spoiler.

Literally forgot about her.

>Aikido

Manhating dyke. Dies in third case (double murder)

>Cosplayer

Worth noting that her disguises have absolutely nothing to do with anything she does. She secretly commits the first murder by using a hidden passageway that is only revealed in the last case.

>Maid

Secretly Ultimate Prime Minister or some shit. Kills to escape because she thinks the Japanese needs her to lead them through the Tragedy. Tennis player knew this as well and actually intended to be her victim.

I still think the game's worth a play, but OP is right that the translation insertions are irritating (and the worst in the series yet). It still does some neat things even if it breaks the rules for a case.

>>14479266

The third game is "V3" which everyone assumed meant Volume 3, but the V is actually the roman numeral 5, because the game is actually the 53rd killing game, far in the future after all the other games. Also the real villain is the audience for liking snuff games.


0cdf6a No.14479318

(reposted with spoiler tags because I forgot them)

>>14479277

Which also invalidates all prior games by making them semi-fictional within their own universe. So if you take v3 as canon all the characters are actually not-actually-talented douchebags who thought it would be cool to be on a killing game reality tv show and were just brainwashed into believing they were characters they were chosen to appear as. To an extent all the Danganronpa casts are already established to be brainwashed into not actually being themselves, but this takes it farther than ever and re-interprets Danganronpa 1 and 2 in the process.

It does moralfag really hard. I could have gotten behind it since I like the idea that the devs were essentially giving a big middle finger but then they had to make it all about how you're bad for enjoying watching other people suffer and all that gay bullshit. Although if anything I learned from trying to remember it, the game got it right that I didn't give a shit about the cast and cared more about the cases because that's exactly what my expectations were. I cared only about the cases. At least Shuichi is best boi.

i played the demo.

shitty liberal localization aside, wtf even is this game? is it supposed to be like a linear point and click with minigames in between? I've seen this series get alot of praise, and it feels like fallout 4 dialogue: the game. "keep clicking different options until you exhaust all of them and then get the right one" its like a shittier version of LA NOIR. interupted by phone and facebook tier minigames.

can someone explain the appeal to me? am i missing something? does the game pick up or change at some point if i stuck it out?

are the originals way different?

I play a fair share of weebshit and i seriously dont get this game.


7b9eea No.14479773

>>14479486

>you're bad for enjoying watching other people suffer

The writer for the series has gone on interviews saying he loves and has a certain attachment to all the characters so that's where I guess this sentiment comes from. The problem is that no one put a gun to his head and forced him to make the plot for these games. Most of the novelty of Danganronpa is putting high school anime characters who would fit into a SoL show into a killing game with each other.

>>14479534

It's an old message that has been done by writers in Japan for decades and never works because the people who consume the media either don't care or don't notice it.

No More Heroes is all about laughing at the player. Travis is a NEET otaku and only gets entertainment from violence and moe.

Thats a slam against the people playing, which admittedly gets overshadowed by Suda’s natural flare for badass set pieces.

Plenty of Jap games pull the, “Stop being a worthless sponge, go out and be a family man. No, seriously, the reproduction rate needs to at least meet replacement level.”

The appeal is in the cases and interactions. It also helps that it has great aesthetic and soundtrack. They did however drop the ball by making the games linear. A lot has already been said for the original concept (Distrust) which was intending to be darker, and also one where you'd have interactions affect who murdered who, and flow on from there. It would've been hard to pull off but also really cool. As it stands the games have little replay value. The spin-off TPS is pretty mediocre too with a seriously underused concept.

>>14479933

>>14480072

The game makes it easier for the story to involve a three dimensional thinking which really helps with building interesting cases. DR also works a LOT with facial expressions and at least tries to work with several different perspectives on how to solve a case. All that makes the story more thrilling, which is why writers as mediocre as the DR team can still deliver basically the same plot for the third time and still make it interesting and thrilling.


d4c9a4 No.14480120

>>14480048

The gameplay is always secondary in a VN but in the actual debate portion it leaves at least some things for you to figure out with more interactivity than just dialog trees. The downside is that the gameplay mechanics sometimes expose the solution (like when it floods a particular keyword with white noise or just the way something is worded). The investigation parts are pretty lousy though, amounting to finding all the key items, where you somehow "know" what they all might be. Occasionally another character might be tagging along to help out or offer ideas, but still.

Also interactions was related to characters. Which you do throughout the game, but especially in your free time to learn more about them, and get buffs during the debate parts. Generally speaking I preferred the cast of the first game.

>>14480072

That's the appeal of the cases. In particular Danganronpa 2's 4th and 5th cases were excellent in terms of how elaborate they were, and the 5th actually redeemed the most annoying character in that game for me.

I can't actually remember the exact progression from that, but yeah, a literal madman who sets up a case that should amount to Russian Roulette with one empty chamber even if they don't take the obvious bait, in order to kill everyone tainted by Ultimate Despair.

Fundamentally not a different statement. The cases are just who murdered who, how and why. That's the same fundamentals as any classic mystery novel, although maybe a bit lighter on action (and not even compared to Agatha Christie-like stories)

I'd say DR2 is worth a playthrough if you like the first game. Not as interesting a cast overall (especially end game) but some of them are cool, and I hold up those two cases I already mentioned as favourites among the two. Never played V3 but might check it out of morbid curiosity since I'll actually be able to now (3.61+ CFW ho!)

If I remember correctly, they are going to make another which kind of defeats the purpose of that ending but fuck it. Go ahead. It's only the fans that absolutely loathed it because the ending basically shat on all of them and the cast was overall more bland than the previous. Although 2 had the problem that you had all these good characters for setting up interesting cases like photography and completely wasted them. I honestly found the ending at first really hilarious because all I could of was Komm susser Tod in my head while watching the concept of Hope and Despair get curb stomped like it should have been from the very first game. It seemed to me to be the only logical conclusion to top we're all in a game in universe lmao and I already know this franchise always had a fucking terrible ending.

Is the NISA translation of Danganronpa 1 (trigger happy havoc) better, or the fanslation?

I'm not paying either way, so if the NISA version is better (unlikely but possible) I'd be willing to play through it. Otherwise I'm assuming the fanslated version is better?
