I’m back with another chapter of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony completed. Unlike the last chapter, this one went very well, in that I managed to figure out almost everything prior to the actual class trial.
That said, I felt like this chapter was a bit more boring than the previous ones. The mystery this time around didn’t excite me as much, part of this might be because many things seemed fairly obvious to me early on and I formed many conclusions quickly, even prior to the murder I had many ideas.
Still fun, the mystery part just wasn’t as fun as previous chapters.
So I’ve found the time to finish chapter 3, and it was quite the mystery, I’ll admit.
I’ll also admit I didn’t do so well!
After the first two chapters, the game managed to throw me off quite a bit with this one.
I’ve decided to stop writing so much synopsis / summary in these posts, because they don’t do the game justice and just draw the post out. If you haven’t played the game or seen how it plays out, my synopsis probably isn’t going to help out much in the end anyways.
Going to try and focus more on what my thoughts were as I played through.
Still ended up writing a lot haha. I feel like this post is more interesting though, with all of my theories and concerns moving forward in the game as to what will happen! A lot has happened this chapter!
If chapter 1 was the game signalling to me that I knew what was going on, chapter 2 was the game’s way of knocking me back down.
Lot of interesting events occurred in this chapter, so I’m just going to get into it.
Danganronpa V3 Chapter 2 Spoilers Ahead!
With the prologue out of the way, I was able to get into the action with chapter 1.
Which is great, because the prologue didn’t have an investigation / class trial.
Chapter 1 was a lot of fun, and brought a lot of nostalgia back seeing as its been many years since I have played a Danganronpa game. The soundtrack and class trial both were really enjoyable.
I’m sort of on the fence as to how much I really like the investigation phase. You basically just go around and examine everything, gathering truth bullets. I don’t think it’s possible to miss anything, because the class trial won’t trigger until everything has been examined – which I think is a bit of a shame. It’d be neat to be able to miss evidence, putting you at a disadvantage in the class trial.
Maybe something like, if you’re missing a truth bullet that you need in the class trial, you take some creditibility / influence damage and someone says something like “Did you miss X?”, and then you gain the truth bullet at that point so that you can move forward. I guess just a way for the game to say that you didn’t do a good enough job at investigating. I think that’d be neat at least.
That said, the one enjoyable part of the investigation phase is being able to come up with your own idea of what happened prior to the class trial.
Anyways, let’s talk more about Chapter 1 specifically.
Danganronpa V3 Chapter 1 Spoilers Ahead!
I’ve started playing Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony!
I actually noticed it on Steam thanks to Doki Doki, and saw that it was 50% off.
I’ve played both Danganronpa 1 and 2, as well as watched the anime, but I sort of forgot that there was a new game that I hadn’t yet played.
The moment I loaded up the game and heard the signature Danganronpa theme, I was hit with a wave of nostalgia and excitement!
