Something which has been foreshadowed really blatantly since literally the first update, I'm guessing.

A lot of people didn't like the last part of DR2, but honestly, I thought it was fantastic. Everything I had hoped it would be and more.

Virtue posted:

Was this foreshadowed before? Someone please remind me so I don’t have to re read the whole LP.

Almost constantly. In the splash art, Chiaki's upside down compared to everyone else, she's the only one who wanted to go along with Monomi's ideas before Monobear showed up... She was basically always the odd one out.

Yeah, the anime is a direct sequel to 2 (and prequel to 1 and 2), but I'm almost positive that you don't need to watch it to play V3.

You are correct. V3 has some callbacks to DR1/2/3, but even just having a passing familiarity is enough to get the references, basically.

I detest DR3. I'd love to have a Let's Watch of it just so I can point out all the things I hate about it.

When I left the cottage, I randomly ran into her.





: Ah, Hajime, good timing.
: Good timing...what do you mean?
: Remember Nagito's video message that we found at the factory?
: Yeah, when we were dealing with the bomb ruckus... What about it?



: Apparently there was more to that message inside that laptop.
: ...Huh?
: We weren't able to see it until a day or so had passed. Apparently it was locked by a timer.
: Did he...set it up so we wouldn't be able to watch it until after the class trial?
: Wh-Why...would he do that...?



: Maybe...Nagito planned to leave this as a will.

Nagito's will...?

: Where is it right now?



: We were just planning to meet at the restaurant and watch it together.
: G-Got it...the restaurant...



: ...
: Everything is fine!



: I was specifically asked by multiple people over the course of the LP to check every single dead student's cottage at this point in the game. Let's do that now.

: Everything is juuuuuuust fine!



: Let's go inside.



: ...



: Yeah, everything here looks right to me.





: Hey, you're late!
: Is it true? Nagito really left another message?



: Kneel before Miss Sonia and thank her! She was the one who found it!
: I was going for a walk with Gundham's hamster and I found it when I stopped by the factory!



: Hmph, a coincidence you say? Wrong! That is the will of causality guiding you.
: Why would Miss Sonia be going for a walk with Gundham? I never allowed that.



: ...So anyway, let's hurry up and play it.
: Yeah, you're right...







: Um... I wonder who's watching this message? ...Is it the traitor from the Future Foundation? If so, congratulations... Looks like it ended the way I hoped it would.
: Ended the way he hoped it would...



: Nagito was trying to kill everyone except the traitor... Dammit...it was just as Monokuma said...
: So he...really set up the traitor as the killer...and he even tried to make them survive the trial? But...why would he do that...?



: Enough with your useless talk. It appears there's still more.



: But...if everyone but the traitor is watching this video... Then unfortunately, I guess I lost. That outcome is the complete opposite of the hope I believe in. Well, not that it matters for me anymore... I mean, no matter what the outcome is, it doesn't matter for a dropout like me.
: Now then, let's put this meaningless introduction aside and get down to business.



: Since I don't know who I'm talking to, I'm going to speak so that both sides will understand.
: First of all, you might be wondering why...I did what I did. Well...I just took action after talking about it for so long. The special prize in the Final Dead Room allowed me to learn a certain truth... It would be troublesome if everyone found out, so I already disposed of that page...
: But anyway, I was totally surprised. I mean...



: Yin●ingObJoyTy#%'*)∇&cyoum
: $psm,03r49jf[@-ultkdrtdes



: The Future Foundation's traitor must've known that truth all along... And so, I was able to learn the truth about this world and resolved to take action immediately.
: I shouldn't have made fun of Hajime. Deep down, I always wanted to become a protagonist myself...



: 42md*)(%^'+'+8rmnfd!@#k
: checkthewebfordetails:"?(%*!



: ...But now that I know that truth, as I look back on Monokuma's actions... I'm starting to see what he's planning.
: By giving us information about the island's mystery and the Future Foundation, he's raising all your hopes... But only so he can lead you to unimaginable despair...
: Plus...Monokuma's trying to show that despair to someone... Perhaps, that someone is...



: seriouslypissingmeoff+hellan1ce2icAntb3l3vess0ometh1ngg
: 00dl1keth1sisonly$102s0happy~=~+1tss0happyOrz



: Jeez...what a hopeless truth... Who is Monokuma's true identity? How could they come up with a plan like that?
: But...that's enough reflecting on the past. Let's talk about the future now.
: If you want to escape Monokuma's plan, there's a specific place you need to go to... The key to enter that place...is that message you found at Nezumi Castle.





: Normally, you need to follow a bunch of steps to enter that place... But since that message gets rid of those steps, you can think of it as an easter egg or something. It was probably left by someone other than Monokuma or Monomi. But that has nothing to do with me...



: Ah, you guyswstillthinkyou're n0tg0nnad13ors0m3th1ngwwwstopitstopitd0ntmst0p12



: ...I had to hide this until my plan came to an end, but I guess now's a nice time to announce it, right?
: So then...I'll announce the password.





: 11037.
: That...is the password that was written in Nezumi Castle. You have to use that to enter that specific place. That's the only way you can escape Monokuma.
: I feel like I've been talking forever but...that's all for me. With this, my duty is finished... I believe my actions will become the foundation of this world's hope. And...if that really happens...
: Praise me. Tell others what I've accomplished. Erect a bronze statue of me. Respect me.



: Please call me...the Ultimate Hope.



...

This was...Nagito's final message...




: Um...that "11037" number that Nagito said was the password...



: There's no mistaking it! That's the password to enter that ancient ruin!



: You better hurry...I think. Let's go before the countdown reaches zero.
: ...You're right. Let's go.





: That bastard Nagito...he was screwed up till the very end. What was that "Praise me" crap...?
: After all the crap he put us through, there's no way we'd ever do that!





: All right, looks like it's finally my turn! I'll punch Monokuma so hard he'll go flyin' around the world! As long as coach Nekomaru and me are here, we won't lose! Just leave it to us!





: Looks like...the others have left already... We should go too.
: What, are you scared now?
: O-Of course not...! Let's crush Monokuma's plan!
: You're right...there's nothing to worry about...since...everyone's here...





: Now then, let us make haste to the ancient ruin! As long as we work together, we will not lose to Monokuma or anyone else!





To go to the trouble of preparing something like this... Nagito was unpredictable until the very end...

: I-I'm starting to feel nauseous from the thrills, the chills, the kills...



: Ah, if you're gonna let it out, why not do it in the Tupperware I keep with me?



: Hey! Now's not the time to gently caress around...!



: It's going to be all right. You don't have to worry...I will protect my young master. Now then, let's go forward together.



: ...The hell? Don't treat me like a kid.



: Believe that hope lies beyond this point! That is your leader's order!

The screen falling apart at the end of the previous update was just too good of a natural stopping point for an update. But yeah, either one would have probably worked just fine.
