When the Ultimate Pianist Kaede Akamatsu wakes up with no memories inside a mysterious building, she has little time to be confused before Monokuma and his five mischievous Monokubs inform her "class" of 16 kids that they're the newest players in the sadistic bear's Super High School Level Killing Game!Only students who manage to commit a murder and escape the following Class Trial without getting caught will win the right to leave this "Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles." Everyone else is doomed to live out their lives here until there are only two students left alive—unless they can find a way to beat the mastermind behind the game itself!The reality of its place in a larger 3 The Animation, before declaring that all of this has led up to the story we're about to play in V3.However, players shouldn't just dismiss Kodaka's assertion that V3 stands alone as empty marketing either.(UDG and D3 The Animation aren't required, they're just appreciable detours you can take into different formats along the way.) 's formerly uneven game feel.
Instead, you must choose to pursue a falsehood at the right moment that will force the culprit to foolishly change the context of your evidence and open a contradiction.Back in the main event, minigames like the Hangman's Gambit, Brain Dive (now Psyche Taxi), and rhythm showdowns have been simplified into the breeziest versions of themselves, shifting the focus more to new features in the Class Trial, which has always been 's greatest strength.Panic Debates and Scrum Debates are just a few of many new ways to cut through bullshit in each heated murder mystery, but the star feature of V3 is the ability to pile on a little bullshit of your own by committing a Perjury.) The formerly interminable School Mode/Island Mode for building affection points has been split into a super-quick dating sim mode for unlocking character skills and an unrelated Game of Life-style board that can be used to level the character of your choice (from game in the series, although you'll have to win non-V3 characters via gachapon) to do battle in an old-school dungeon crawler.This mode will probably still feel dry for anyone not into low-rent Famicom-era RPGs, but it's still far more engrossing than the bonus modes of past games.
