    I can’t say I was compelled to explore the board with every single character, nor was I enamoured with the story or the writing. If anything, I felt a bit weird playing this after V3. And while the main games are rarely longer than 30 hours, I can see people grinding forever just to get something satisfying out of Danganronpa S. Unless you’re a hardcore fan, I don’t think it’s worth it. But if you’re picking up Danganronpa Decadence, it might be worth a peek.

    Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is a good game for two distinct groups of people: those who went for 100% completion of the adventure game trilogy and those who want an incredibly brief RPG. If you’re in either one of those camps, then it’s worth signing up. Otherwise, stick to the adventure games.

    Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is an odd experience to recommend because its inclusion within Danganronpa Decadence makes it approachable to all purchasers of the package. Further, its base standalone $19.99 price point is fair, if only for hardcore fans of the genre to spend a little more time with these characters. Those who found enjoyment in the Ultimate Talent Development Plan minigame will find a familiar experience, but there’s nothing really here to keep you engaged outside of a sub-par board game with gacha systems.

    Danganronpa S Ultimate Summer Camp is a modest spin-off for fans. While it makes sense as a collection addition, it is far less appealing as a stand-alone purchase.

    Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is a welcome game for those who'd like to see how characters from the franchise would get along if they were trapped together on a tropical island. However, the gameplay is a bit too simplistic so unless you're really into grinding and collecting, you probably won't play it for long before wanting to play something more substantial from the main series.

    While it's a fun time for fans, Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is a total grindfest and plays almost the exact same way every time. With gameplay that's both luck-based and uninspiring, it's an incredibly tough recommendation to anyone but devoted series obsessives. This writer found it compelling — games don't take that long — but it is repetitive to a fault, and by design. Bizarrely, there are some ways in which it's less interesting and compelling than the equivalent unlockable feature in V3 and that was a free post-game bonus. Ask yourself if you really need to spend money to see the characters in swimsuits and make your decision from there.

    As much as I’ve always liked the Danganronpa series, I can’t imagine wanting to sink endless amounts of time or money into such an empty, boring game. And given we’re talking about a series for which the word “boring” should never apply, that should tell you how much of a failure this game is.

    Danganronpa S is a fanservice game first and foremost. If you aren't a fan of danganronpa, and you aren't pining for interactions between itsDanganronpa S is a fanservice game first and foremost. If you aren't a fan of danganronpa, and you aren't pining for interactions between its casts of characters, there isn't a ton here for you. If you are, then it is great. You have characters from all 4 danganronpa games. The gameplay loop is essentially: you select a character you own and go through a board game mode to level up a character, you will also see some interactions at this time. Then you go through a battle mode. These reward you with coins to get more, higher rarity characters as well as upgrades, which you'll take to level up in the board, which will be more powerful to get further in the battle mode, which gives you more coins, etc.

    The rpg side is alright. As good as it has to be and nothing more. But I am a danganronpa fan, and as such, I am enjoying seeing the interactions, and collecting the characters. It is a grind for sure, but something I don't feel the need to grind nonstop, I can put in a bit of time before bed and just enjoy it for a while.

    The two big downers, even as a fan are:
    1) There is only one board, based on DR2. I get that it fits, given that the Island theme, but for varieties sake, having boards based on DR1 and V3 would add appreciated variety to the board game section.

    2) No Mukuro sprites. Incredibly disappointing. Given the premise of the game, it makes no sense that she appears in disguise. Really puzzling choice.

    Otherwise, I have no issues.

    The game is a diversion from the main timeline- in which the tragedy never occurred. Of course, some things change in response. Junko's trueThe game is a diversion from the main timeline- in which the tragedy never occurred. Of course, some things change in response. Junko's true talent of Ultimate Despair being open knowledge and its deterioration fill in the situational plothole creatively. But other ones are weird (hey!! your sister and your friend's mom are coming on this school trip too for no reason lol).

    But, being a spinoff game, this is one most fans can skip. You have to grind to continue unlocking other characters (if you don’t pay for gatcha rolls), and hence, interactions. The cross-class interactions are the main draw of the game (as its not a killing game and doesn't provide much new info). Just read the transcripts if you're here for the characters.

    The battle system is fairly basic and gets repetitive quickly, like the actual board game-play. It's easy for someone bad at strategy, like me, to learn- but doesn't present much challenge to seasoned strategists. Also, I wish there were more defined types than cerebral, athletic, and balanced, as each character's talent is specific. At least six or so titles could be used instead- say something along the lines of athletic, clever, artistic, charm (not the right word but close enough), average/balanced, etc. This would also provide more variety to the battle system.

    The gatcha system doesn't add much to gameplay and is purely for profit. Thanks, guys...

    Overall, fans of Danganronpa's cast will enjoy seeing different classes interact, but only after grinding at a boring, simplistic battle system.

    You should add more language support in your games, especially if its text based,
