Dangan Ronpa Translation Project
(Dangan Ronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei)
Dangan Ronpa: Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei (lit. Bullet Rebuttal: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair) is a 2010 PSP game created by Spike (before they got bought by Chunsoft). Described as a "high-speed logic action" game, this game takes elements from Phoenix Wright and applies its own style to it, both in story and gameplay. It has reportedly sold 135,000 copies (including its reprint) from its release in December 2010 to January 2012.
This project has two goals:
- To create tools for editing the PSP (not iOS) ROM such that anyone can change the text.
- To translate the PSP ROM to English, if an official English translation is not announced.
The first goal will be independent of the second goal: even if an official English translation is announced, the first goal must be fulfilled for the sake of those who are not getting translations in their languages.
