I thought the original Trigger Happy Havoc was wasted potential concerning character development, story and the horror atmosphere it was trying to go for. I want to keep the original tone of the game somewhat present but in this rewrite I am planning on making some major changes to the canon work, including changing up the murderers, victims and even to a degree survivors, as well as murder methods and executions.
I also want to give interesting characters like Mondo, Kiyotaka, Chihiro and Celestia more spotlight as I feel they were tossed away unceremoniously by Kodaka, even for a story about a killing game. I will also be removing some of the more offensive aspects of the game such as Chihiro’s transphobic plot line, the creepier aspects of the canon work and Hifumi in general, who will be replaced by an oc. The main POV will be from Kirigiri as I think she is very interesting and while I like Makoto, I feel the series is sorely lacking in female main characters. There will be more LGBT+ representation too because unlike Kodaka I’m not a coward.

Since my rewrite of Trigger Happy Havoc was received overall positively I thought it would be nice to rewrite the second game too. Like Dawn of Despair there will be changes to some degree including murder methods, killers, executions and survivors.
The changes may be slightly less dramatic here since I found the plot of the second game a little less rage inducing than the first, so I will mostly focus on giving the characters more depth. I especially want to give the girls more development since Kodaka is terrible at writing female characters and I hate how they were mostly used as fanservice fodder. Similarly, I will be cutting out the creepier aspects in the canon game (you know what I mean), also Teru is cancelled. Again there will be more LGBT representation because heteronormativity blows.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this rewrite and have a blast!
