Danganronpa Another Episode: Remixed Hope (Japanese: ダンガンロンパ Ａｎｏｔｈｅｒ Ｅｐｉｓｏｄｅ: 希望やり直しDanganronpa Another Episode: Hope Redone) is an upcoming murder mystery visual novel for the PlayStation Vita handheld system. The game fuses together the casts of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair to create a brand new story. Due to its name, it can be seen as a spiritual successor to Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls.
The game features three different storylines, as well as three different playable characters that change the story accordingly. These three playable characters are Hajime Hinata (the protagonist of Danganronpa 2), Makoto Naegi and Kyoko Kirigiri (the two main protagonists of Danganronpa). As such, this is the first game in which "Free Time" periods allow the player to interact with Naegi and Hinata.
An enhanced version for the PlayStation 3 and 4 was released in late 2016. The game was, story and gameplay wise, identical to the Vita incarnation, with the only changes being aesthetic. All characters had full voice acting and character models added into this version of the game.
There are 34 characters present in the game. 32 of the characters - the students - have been dubbed the Class of Hope, while the other two characters are the staff members of Hope's Peak Academy: Monokuma and Usami/Monomi. The former headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy, Jin Kirigiri, is also seen in various portraits around the school. His execution, "Blast Off!", makes an appearance as the game's inaugural cutscene; as it had been for both the original game and its anime.

Being a graphic novel, the game is read more than it is played. The player is allowed to walk through the hallways of Hope's Peak Academy, or Jabberwock Island in the game's second half, and interact with students and objects along the way. Interacting with objects can rarely grant extra ammunition for Classroom Trials, or be given coins that can purchase presents for the other students. Additionally, interacting with students can grant either Skill Points or Hope Fragments; the latter of which can purchase new skills in order to upgrade the player's abilities in the Classroom Trials.
The Classroom Trials feature the core of the gameplay, with many minigames being played throughout. Non-Stop Debate has the player having to fire evidence at the other students' statements; either to present new evidence or to point out a lie. This is the most common minigame present in the Class Trials. Epiphany Diagram has the player having to grab letters in order to get their character to remember a piece of evidence or a statement from earlier in the trial. Bullet Talk Battles (B.T.B.) are rhythmic minigames, where the player must hit the buttons to lock-on and fire at their opponent's statements as they attempt to accuse them or falsify their information, with a final truth bullet being fired when completed. A similar minigame takes place in Panic Talk Battles (P.T.B.), which is almost identical save for the end: where the player must instead combine four words in the right order. Logic Dive is similar to that of a snowboarding game, in which the player must ride down a "logic tube" avoiding pitfalls and traps in order to reach a logical conclusion to a problem given. Finally, the Closing Argument has the player piece together a cutscene that will play out the entire murder and the events surrounding it. The Classroom Trial minigames have an "Influence Gauge" that acts as the player's life, and a "Concentration Gauge" which can slow down the Classroom Trial should it become too difficult.
The game is divided into several chapters, which are divided into four quarters respectively. These four quarters are the Prologue, School Life of Despair, Field Trip of Hope and the Epilogue. Additionally, every murder and Class Trial is given a chapter.
