Danganronpa V3 will feature streaming and screenshot restrictions on PS4

Danganronpa V3 will feature streaming and screenshot restrictions on PS4 1

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony will have streaming restrictions upon launch on PlayStation 4, preventing players from streaming and creating videos of the game beyond the first chapter.

These restrictions are in the interest of preventing spoilers, a representative of publisher NIS America told CGM, and have been imposed directly by developer Spike Chunsoft.

What this means is that both streaming through the PlayStation 4’s share features to stream the game, as well as screenshots, will be blocked beyond the first chapter. Streaming is blocked once the player reaches the first class trial, which is roughly four to five hours into Danganronpa V3’s story. According to NIS America, Spike Chunsoft will be taking down any videos with content beyond the first chapter.

NIS America said in a statement it will be releasing updates about relieving these restrictions in the future, implying streamers and content creators will be able to stream and take screenshots beyond the first chapter at some point.

Spike Chunsoft did not respond when reached for comment.

Earlier this year, Persona 5 had similar streaming restrictions, with developer Atlus preventing any native streaming or screenshots whatsoever, and requiring those streaming through third-party methods to only stream up to a certain point in the game or face consequences. The controversy ultimately forced Atlus to extend the point streamers could stream to a later point in the game within the first month of the game’s launch.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita on September 26th. The game is the first to feature a new setting for the series, after Danganronpa’s original story concluded in the animated series Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School last year.
