Death Come True, an FMV Adventure From the Creator of Danganronpa, Hits Switch Today

Puhuhuhuhu- *ahem* Neat.

The eccentric mystery-solving series Danganronpa is well-known for its style and animation, but the creator's latest game veers into real life. Death Come True is a full-motion video adventure from Kazutaka Kodaka and Izanagi Games, and it's out today.

Available on the Nintendo Switch eShop as well as mobile platforms, Death Come True is a bit of a departure for Kodaka. Rather than a death game among high-school prodigies, Death Come True is about an amnesiac boy trying to suss out the mysteries of his current situation, including why he's wanted for murder and what's going in the hotel he woke up in.

From the clip above, it seems like a time-looping adventure with multiple endings, akin to the Zero Escape series. This fits well, considering Kodaka founded Too Kyo Games with Zero Escape director and writer Kotaro Uchikoshi just two years ago. Basically, it's a little more Bandersnatch than the usual heated debates and lie-shooting that Danganronpa entails. You make some choices, see how it pans out, and hopefully solve some mysteries along the way.

Still, at the price of $15.99 on the Switch eShop, it seems like an interesting venture. As someone who's a pretty big fan of Danganronpa—as you should be, too—this might be enough to stave me over until we get a port of the series onto Nintendo's super-popular handheld console. There hasn't been one announced yet, but I'm still holding out hope for it, if only so I don't have to dig out my Vita's charging cable.

Death Come True is currently available on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android. The official site indicates PlayStation 4 and PC ports are planned too, though there's no indication of when those might arrive.
