A Dangerous New World
When I heard the words Danganronpa as the Nintendo Direct announced the introduction of World’s End Club, my ears perked up quickly. I love a good series with mayhem, mystery and murder. So hearing the same team behind Monokuma fun time was working on something new is great. But not content to be the same format, World’s End Club looks both familiar and foreign at the same time.
The game involves a group of children that have woken up in a strange amusement park. They’re quickly drawn into a Game of Fate by a twisted clown. Oh and apparently the world outside has also been devastated, and the children themselves have fantastic new powers. The game itself has an attractive cartoonish aesthetic, more cutesy than Danganronpa. You’ll alternate between side scrolling teamwork and fighting dangerous monsters as you explore this brand new world.
If Danganronpa is any guide, there will be a whole host of revelations and mysteries in this title. I’m really eager to see what’s in store, courtesy of the team at Izanagi Games. For those interested, the game is slated to release on Nintendo Switch this May 28th.
