Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp Review - Review

Having caught to the primary journey modes within the Danganronpa collection beforehand, I used to be greater than a bit confused when Danganronpa S: Final Summer season Camp was introduced as a part of the Danganronpa Decadence assortment in June. After studying up on the minigame it was based mostly on, I held out hope that it’d be one thing price sitting down and grinding by way of. What ended up occurring on the summer season camp was a complete lot of grinding, which works for somebody who desires a fast RPG, however would require the endurance of a saint to 100% full.

The plot of the Summer season Camp is fundamental and actually, the sport explicitly tells you to not fear about it. Nearly each named primary character within the Danganronpa collection—all three video games that come to Swap on the identical time plus the Extremely Despair Ladies spinoff—are participating in a digital commencement journey, with the kids of UDG alongside for the journey and the mom of a personality presumably serving as a chaperone. The digital world is split into six islands, however a bunch of monsters finally ends up blocking the trail to every island. The individual you decide to play begins out on a recreation board and has 50 “days” (turns) to develop their “expertise” and open as a lot of the island as attainable alongside the best way. On the finish of that point they’ll select to use Expertise, an precise foreign money earned within the recreation, to studying expertise that may be taken to the sport’s “Battle” mode, often known as the Tower of Despair. The Tower is a collection of battles in opposition to the enemies encountered on the board at ever-increasing energy ranges, with 200 ranges divided into 4 “towers.” There’s no precise plot within the tower that I used to be capable of finding within the overview interval.

Final Fortunate Pupil my butt, contemplating that is the beginning sq. with 20 turns gone.

The board recreation portion has all kinds of issues to hit (or keep away from). Battles can happen on the map, in addition to occasion scenes both solo in a pixel artwork fashion or the “Good friend Sq.” that performs out a scene between characters. Areas are additionally current for reinforcing stats, whether or not by way of pure positive factors or by shopping for gear, which get carried into varied boss fights that open the best way to completely different islands. Alongside the best way, playing cards will likely be picked up that may change motion together with warping the character, and likewise present short-term buffs if a battle is about to occur. After the flip, random results can occur the place the cash depend, stats, or location of the character might be modified. I shortly discovered {that a} “success” card (which assured the nice end result from one in all these occasions) was very important to maintaining stats up. When a battle occurs, it’s a flip based mostly affair that rips off Dragon Quest shamelessly. Contemplating each non-boss enemy within the recreation I might discover had an look based mostly on the collection’s mascot Monokuma, there’s really a whole lot of selection within the enemy designs even when they do have the identical face. Expertise ranges are all based mostly on 100 factors, so the additional into the sport I went the extra I’d achieve two ranges after a single struggle.

If you happen to care sufficient concerning the Danganronpa collection, you’re most likely right here for the fanservice of the “character interplay” selection. Though the opposite sort of fanservice can also be current; the sport’s set on a collection of tropical islands for a cause. The character choice to start out is slim, with simply 5 characters, although it does give expertise with the three “sorts” of characters (athletic, clever, or fortunate). Getting extra characters, nevertheless, requires going by way of the Tower of Despair or finishing ingame achievements to earn one of many three completely different currencies, that are taken to the “faculty retailer” and utilized in a gacha machine. There are 62 characters to select from, each at one in all 4 completely different rarity ranges, and each presumably having a “hype impact” that additionally comes out of the gacha. Mentioned gacha additionally drops objects for reinforcing stats within the board recreation. See the issue? Though all the recreation’s content material is meant to be accessible by way of regular gameplay, I discovered the loop of “play board recreation for 30-45 minutes, run tower with items, spend cash, repeat” acquired outdated by the point I had 1 / 4 of the characters accessible in any type. I can see the place the temptation to spend cash would are available in, particularly on the upper rarity variations, however I wasn’t capable of see the microtransaction prices as a result of the ingame “merchandising machine” soft-locked the sport after I clicked on it. This may go stay on launch day, but it surely’s straightforward for this recreation to change into a recreation you pay for to spend cash on foreign money (which is why I suppose it’s principally free should you’re getting the “Decadence” bodily launch).

That is what we meant by the “different sort of fanservice”.

Except for attempting to hit a retailer that didn’t really exist but, I did have one smooth lock after locking in expertise on the finish of a run; fortunately the autosave introduced me again to the tip of the final flip so it was straightforward to get again to that time. The characters are continuously represented in pixel artwork type on the board, which is generally tremendous each docked and handheld. The one graphical criticism I had got here each time an island would open: the islands are obscured by a number of the worst-designed fog on the Swap, and I’m undecided if it’s an instance of stylistic suck or simply unhealthy design. Every of the areas within the board recreation has its personal theme music which is extra bombastic open air and muted indoors. There’s no full voice appearing; even the opening sequence and Good friend Squares use fast voice clips which can be recycled from the supply video games.

Danganronpa S: Final Summer season Camp is an efficient recreation for 2 distinct teams of individuals: those that went for 100% completion of the journey recreation trilogy and people who need an extremely transient RPG. If you happen to’re in both a type of camps, then it’s price signing up. In any other case, keep on with the journey video games.
