-To be added-
- The aesthetics of Danganronpa: Infinite Despair and Infinite Despair 2 were based on the beta version of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, which was called DISTRUST. The stories are meant to be more darker and gorier than the main series however this lead to Infinite Despair being toned down from the original brutal deaths. While Infinite Despair 2 keeps the gory bits with brutal deaths and executions for the members of despair.
- There was a game concept for Danganronpa: Infinite Despair 2, which acts as a companion to the written story, the concept makes it a third-person open world sandbox video game.
