Spike Chunsoft held a press conference last night to reveal more details about its upcoming visual novel threequel Danganronpa 3.

It'll take place in a completely new academy and feature all-new characters as well. But, don't worry, psychotic two-tone teddy bear Monokuma will make a reappearance.

As with previous games in the series, you'll be following a bunch of students as they're trapped inside their school and forced to murder each other to escape.

You can expect investigation parts in which you explore the school and talk to various characters.

The intense trial sections also return in which you're able to lie in order to disprove statements issued by the other students.

The theme for Danganronpa 3 is said to be "psycho cool" and will have a visual style that matches, dubbed a "cool adult-like image."
