Are you on the level of excitement for this title that you should be? If you are, anything new is exciting, and builds more anticipation, in regards, to that evil little Akuma. As of today, we’ve learned that a new batch of screenshots has been tossed out, by NIS America, for the world to see. The screenshots do not disappoint, and give us an even more vibrant title, than what we saw before. For those who are eager for it, your wait is not much further off, and will hopefully be close enough for you, with the release date, in North America, being set for September 2nd, and for our friends in Europe on the 5th of September.
As usual, players are once more thrown into a life and death situation, as a high school student, who has to use their wits, and their teamwork, to survive. Each student has special abilities that is only good for them, which as before, makes them the ‘ultimate’ example of whatever it is they are good at. Returning to the forefront, as the character designer, Rui Komatsuzaki once more takes lead into another darker take on the anime style of artwork used.
In the new screenshots we are given, players will get to see the new elements that have been given to us as official information from NIS America and remain unaltered from their press release:
Logic Dive – You’ll skateboard through a glowing path, interrupted by questions. Answering correctly will lead you down the right path, but the wrong answer will throw you off course and reset the Logic Dive!
Hangman’s Gambit – Letters are flying across the screen, and you have to pick out the ones you need to spell out your key evidence! Correct spelling lands you points, and you can fuse like letters together to form larger yet stationary letters that are worth even more points! But these big letters will detonate if you’re too slow to use them, and if mismatched letters collide with each other, your health bar will take a big hit!
Rebuttal Showdown – Characters won’t just sit back and let you talk this time around. Your arguments can be interrupted, and you’ll have to use evidence to cut down their arguments in this frenetic, one-on-one debate! The tropical sun’s bringing some serious heat to the Class
About the game:
Jabberwock Island — once a popular tourist destination, this now uninhabited island remains oddly pristine. You and your classmates at the elite Hope’s Peak Academy have been brought to this island by your super-cute teacher for a “lovey-dovey, heart-throbbing school trip.” Everyone seems to be having fun in the sun…until Monokuma returns to restart his murderous game! Trapped on this island of mutual killing, your only hope of escape rests in solving the island’s mysteries. But be warned, sometimes the truth can be its own despair…
