Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony
For the uninitiated, Killing Harmony is the third main entry in the Danganronpa franchise. Notably, it is the first title to be developed for home consoles as well. Killing Harmony breaks away from its predecessors in that it does not belong in the same Hope’s Peak Academy Saga as the other games. As some fans may know, the Hope’s Peak Academy Saga concluded with the anime called Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School. It aired back in 2016.
With this into account, Killing Harmony thus starts off its own saga. This time around, it is known as the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles Saga. As to how long the saga will run for remains unknown. Notably, the only character who carries over from the Hope’s Peak Academy Saga to the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles Saga is Monokuma.
