Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp
- Main article: Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp
- "With an all-star dream lineup of characters from each Danganronpa game, gather Hope Fragments at a tropical resort. Explore Jabberwock Island and develop your Dangan characters. Gather money through battle and upgrade your equipment, then defeat bosses and move on to the next island!" - Official Synopsis
Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is an expanded, stand-alone remaster of the board game minigame Ultimate Talent Development Plan (UTDP) featured as post-game bonus content in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. The game is set in an alternate universe in which characters from all four games are able to interact as peers, in a non-killing peaceful environment based on Jabberwock Island, the tropical location of Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Danganronpa S features new sets of sprites featuring the characters in beachwear, new CGs, and new encounters not featured in the original board game. The game features 67 characters and over 1,000 different character events.
Like it's predecessor UTDP, the game features three main modes which work in a cyclical system:
- The player can play as any main character from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony - or, new to this new remaster - Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. The player unlocks these characters by earning cards from the Ultimate Card Death Machine, a gacha system similar to the MonoMono Machines in the main game series.
- The player can then use their unlocked characters to play the board game mode, which features cross-over interactions similar to Free Time Events between characters from all four games, allowing characters to interact with characters they never would have met in the normal timeline. Based on where they land on the board, the player levels up their character's abilities.
- Once the characters are leveled up, the player can then use them in the Monokuma's Test dungeon crawler minigame. The player can create a party of up to 4 characters, who each have different stats and abilities. The goal is to travel around each level of the dungeon and reach the staircase to the next floor. As they navigate the dungeon, they will face random encounters with monsters who they must defeat or run away from to continue. Defeating enemies will earn the player gold (G), which can be used to receive new cards from the Ultimate Death Card Machine or craft new equipment. The deeper into the dungeon the player travels, the higher level the enemies will be. Every 10th level contains a boss. When a boss is defeated, the level of the Ultimate Death Card Machine increases, making it easier to collect rarer (and stronger) cards. While traversing the dungeon, materials can be collected and used to create equipment which can strengthen the characters. In treasure chests, S Tickets and U Tickets can be found, which will award the player a free rare drop from the Ultimate Death Card Machine.
There is also an additional Mono Mono Machine while will dispense collaboration illustrations, similar to the previous games' gallery systems. These illustrations will also be sold as physical real-world goods.
On November 13th, 2017, a job listing was posted by developer Spike Chunsoft on Japanese website Levtech seeking a game programmer, character designer, and 3D designer for a future Danganronpa game to be launched on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. On December 20th, 2019, another job listing was posted on Workport by Spike Chunsoft seeking a UI designer to work on an adventure game for PlayStation 4 and PC (Steam). One of the required job qualifications is "someone who likes the Danganronpa series." The other requirements are that the applicant has professional communication skills, as well as experience in UI creation for a console title or equivalent PC or browser title.  Both of these listings led to heavy speculation by games journalists and the fandom of an upcoming Danganronpa title. The latter job listing is likely to have been related to Danganronpa Decadence, specifically the UI for the Anniversary Editions and Danganronpa S.
On December 27th, 2019, Spike Chunsoft and TooKyo Games contributed to a "Game Developers New Years Messages" segment in Famitsu gaming magazine, in which both companies confirmed that they are working on something for the 10th anniversary of Danganronpa in 2020. Spike Chunsoft said: "We're preparing many projects for Danganronpa's 10th anniversary.", while TooKyo games said: "We want to create a reunion party-like atmosphere with the players working together with Spike Chunsoft for Danganronpa's 10th anniversary."  On April 9th, 2020 it was announced by Spike Chunsoft in Famitsu online gaming magazine that "a lot of new information on games, goods, tie-ins monthly commemorative programs, etc" would be announced over the course of 2020-2021 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the series, in what was titled the Danganronpa 10th Anniversary Project..

- The title Danganronpa Decadence is a pun on the "Danganronpa Decade" tagline used throughout the 10th Anniversary celebrations, and the word Decadence, referring to something luxurious, premium, and self-indulgent.
- The Japanese version of the E3 announcement trailer included a number of different scenes to the English/Worldwide trailer, with less focus on the addition of Danganronpa Another Episode characters, most notably replacing Kotoko Utsugi on the game board clip with Kokichi Oma, and replacing an encounter with Hiroko Hagakure with a clip of Makoto, Hajime, and Nagito.
