This article, Danganronpa 4: Trust Kill, is property of Queen Amy.

Danganronpa 4: Trust Kill is the 4th entry in the Danganronpa series written by Queen Amy. It has no relation to the Hope's Peak Academy saga or the Gifted Inmates Academy saga and features a new location, a new cast of characters and a new main theme which is set to be: TRUST vs DISTRUST.

The overall theme of the game is "psycho crazy" and features a new cast, new music, a new location and brand new minigames. Although the Daily Life segments are unchanged the Class Trials have been upgraded.

The biggest change seen in the Class Trials is the ability to detect someone's lie but trust them enough to cover for them and refute the wrong statement on purpose. This will make the Class Trials tense and full of DISTRUST.

Sacred Heart School

The Sacred Heart School is a newly-founded government funded school that is situated on a remote Island. The school was specifically started to satisfy the needs of the Gifted & Talented; 'The Nation's Hope' as the government call them. Everyone who goes there is specially scouted and the Government even pay for tuition. Each student who attends the Sacred Heart School has an 'Ultimate' talent unique to them.

The Sacred Heart School was started so that these promising adolescents are able to hone and enhance their talents. Sacred Heart is a boarding school and students rarely are allowed to go home and see their family - the Government want them to focus on improving their talent and only that. A little selfish, but what can you do?

The New Killing Game

An all new 16 students, who've been scouted to attend the Sacred Heart School, will have their wits put to the test when Headmaster Monokuma shows up and does what he does best: forces them into a game of mutual killing.
