Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair - Analysis

Author: Juan García
Date: 2020-07-30 16:32:46
The world of visual novels is peculiar. What's more, I must confess that before playing Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair it was a genre that made me twist my face and look with contempt. "Those weird Japanese things" he said ... Now, after more than 25 hours of playing with this peculiar sequel developed by Spike Chunsoft, I must admit that I was wrong in my reluctance, and that I was hooked as the most hardcore Japanese of Akihabara.

But let's go by parts and don't accelerate. Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is an almost literary title in which we will mostly read texts on screen, being mere spectators of the plot presented to us. Occasionally we can choose where to go or who to talk to. There will even be moments in true Ace Attorney style , with his search for evidence included, but none of these playable possibilities are the soul of the production. That role belongs to the nice plot that the developer has devised, a kind of Battle Royale in which one gifted students must kill or die ... Although in reality it is not all that simple. However, before detailing the plot further, we find the first great stone in the way of the title: its language. Both texts and voices appear in the language of Shakespeare , without the possibility of selecting the language of Cervantes. A great failure given the huge amounts of texts that we will find and even a playable barrier, since there are mini-games that require an important knowledge of the language spoken by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

If language is not a problem, we are faced with a mystery and murder story in which 16 kids, each specialist in something (there is the traumatized nurse, the lucky one, the outgoing cook, the fearful mechanic ...), are locked in a tropical island from which you can only get out if a partner is killed and nobody discovers you in the subsequent trial. If he manages to be unscathed, he also condemns the rest of his companions to death, so the trial becomes a matter of capital importance (never better said). So far it seems that we are talking about a chapter of A Crime Has Been Written, but passed through the filter of Japanese madness. However, it is much more. Much of the greatness of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair comes from the gallery of characters, all unique and unique, capable of falling well or badly depending on whether the developer is put between eyebrows. Spike plays very well with the times and personalities of the characters , weaving a tangle of almost palatial intrigues in which each player will have their favorite and their hated.

This is further accentuated by the need to get to know our island friends more and more, since we are obliged to become intimate with the rest of the inhabitants of the island. We choose in free moments who we want to talk to , and little by little confidence will grow until they tell us true personal secrets of each character. That is part of the magic, being closer and closer and even loving some of the extravagant characters just to see him die or, worse, to see how he becomes a murderer with strange and peculiar motives. That's the magic of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and its thousand and one unexpected twists . You can never know what awaits us when the sun goes down, and that is precisely the most refreshing of the program that we find here.

In the meantime, we will worry about pressing the button to pass texts and texts, exploring the locations and finding the hidden Monokumas (who will give us coins to get gifts to give to our tamagotchi or companions) or starting automatic conversations in which we will eventually have to choose between several options. End of story. At least as far as the 'normal' gameplay is concerned, the one that is closest to the visual novel. Because the bulk of the fun appears in the trials , after each death. In these meetings we will have to observe the evidence collected at the crime scene and use it at the right time, trying to give or take away reason from our island companions as they speak, trying to discern the secrets of each murder. In addition, several mini-games are included, one in the hangman style, another of mental speed and one more of rhythm at the end of each trial, forming a peculiar and refreshing mix that spices up the calmer gameplay of the rest of the adventure.

Each trial can last a whopping two hours, but this coupled with the exploration of the island and the times we waste time makes Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair a particularly long title, which can go up to 30 hours of play . To this we would have to add three metagames that we will unlock with our progress, to the virtual pet's own minigame within the campaign and the occasional surprise that Spike Chunsoft has managed to hide from us, to configure a title that offers a more than respectable amount of content for the price that it has and that, in addition, it manages to hook without getting too tired once we pass the eternal prologue (another step to be overcome, that of the too slow start to the title).

In technical questions we are not going to get into excess since they are not exactly the most remarkable thing about Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. From the visual point of view, the most remarkable thing is the art direction, since from the technical point of view we are faced with a production of the simplest: static characters in two dimensions and three-dimensional settings with very little detail and movement. Nothing that could not be done better ... But the fact is that it does not need to be done better, since it fulfills its mission, offering us a casual and efficient approach to the island and, above all, to the characters. The same with the music, simple but effective, and the dubbing (as we said, only in English) that does not cover all the phrases of all the characters, but only the most important for key moments or to frame the character itself. Enough and without stridency.

If you are looking for a different title and capable of delving into topics such as hope and despair, you may be facing one of the best opportunities you have had in a long time. Danganronpa 2 is a title that although it is not perfect, it does manage to do almost everything it proposes ... Despite being aimed at a very specific audience.
