DanganRonpa (the game) Licensed by NISA! Will this affect the fan translation of the sequel?

2013-07-07 10_34_44-ダンガンロンパ1・2 Reload Surprise news to me. Dangan Ronpa the PS Vita game got licensed by NISA. [ANN.com] [gematsu.com] The interesting thing is, dangan ronpa isn’t out on the Vita yet in Japan, instead there is an upcoming Japan Vita version release called Dangan Ronpa 1&2 Reload, which has both game1 and game2 packed in. BUT. The version that NISA will release is JUST dangan ronpa 1. Chopping out two. However, there is new content being featured on the Reload version of the game, so they might make it into the Western release. Full title: Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Slated for Early 2014. On an unlikely platform 🙁

There is a fan translation of the 1st game which was completed by Project Zetsubou just two weeks ago. So I’m very happy that NISA didn’t C&D them like other companies would have done. I’m not sure if NISA will reuse the scripts already released by the fan team?  I’m also not sure if this will affect the fan team from doing Dangan Ronpa 2 the sequel. (it might)
