Xbox has previously noted how it wants to bolster its Japanese video game offerings, and with this in mind, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition is now available on the platform.

The Spike Chunsoft visual novel adventure series is currently celebrating Its 10th anniversary, and as part of this, the first game's anniversary version has been released on Xbox One and Windows 10. It's also playable on Xbox Series X|S, and can be accessed via the Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass subscription services.

This original Danganronpa was first released in 2010 on the PlayStation Portable. Here's a bit about the anniversary edition via the official PR:

The first entry of the series introduced the killing game between trapped high school students and the Class Trials where they weed out the killer. This entry drew widespread attention for its shocking setting and steadily grew in popularity with its cast of loveable characters, mysterious story, and talented voice cast.

The Anniversary Edition features a gallery where players can listen to character voices, as well as view character expressions, in-game illustrations, and character references.

In the acclaimed series, you must use high-speed deductive action to expose a murderer. It all starts when Monokuma, a self-proclaimed headmaster, traps extremely talented high schoolers from around the world inside his academy. To escape, Monokuma forces the students to play a killing game and identify the murderer in twisted Class Trials. When a body is discovered, you will investigate, gather evidence, and question your classmates before the turbulent spectacle of a Class Trial.

As you determine who to refute, the fully-voiced arguments by classmates add to the tense atmosphere. Class Trials combine deduction and action elements to create an exciting gaming experience unlike any other.
