    It would be cool if you had the option to kill someone and cover it up.

  • Tom Devaddere

    So is DR 3 going to be like a remaster for Ultra dispair girls or a sequel to another episode? If i’m not mistaken Kyoko (sister of Byakuya?) was also shown in the IF episode in DR 2 as main character could that have been the trailer for Another Episode?

  • Foundation series

    Even though this is perhaps unlikely, it would be very cool if DR 3 had some non-linear gameplay, namely multiple routes. Probably not going to happen, but if done right would be amazing.

    Other than that, it would be interesting if the game introduced a few innovations to the killing game, not so much as to make the game unrecognizable, but to change the formula some.

    I hope Kyoko has a major role.

    • Zachariah

      Likelihood is small. The creator emphasized he wanted the next game to either be in the past or far future. Though even if it’s a direct sequel to the first two, it’ll likely involve another murder game, in which there’ll definitely be 16 new characters.

      • H3adHunt3r

        Hope It’ll be in the future.

        • Goroad

          I don’t see how it could be the past.


        Surely with another early boot Byakuya type situation.


      Kyoko is bae.

      • H3adHunt3r

        what does bae mean?


          It means she is my favourite ^^
