Early Game Guide

The main goal for Development Mode is to defeat the Monobeasts, in order to unlock the additional Jabberwock Islands. The gameplay loop is as such:

  1. Proceed to the Door Square on each island
  2. Defeat the Miniboss inside
  3. Earn a Scroll, which weakens a specific Monobeast
  4. Defeat the matching Monobeast on the Central Island
  5. Proceed to the next island
  6. Repeat

There are five islands in total, with all the Monobeasts residing on the central island. Defeating them will unlock the bridge they are guarding. The training squares in the later islands give much higher rewards, such as the Level Up squares granting 4 levels instead of 1. In the early game, it will be difficult to level up characters beyond approximately level 30/40 in the 50-Day limit, which will also make it difficult to defeat the later Monobeasts or proceed further up the Tower of Despair (Battle Mode).

However, every 10 Hope Fragments that are collected from the board game mode, which are earned automatically after completing the 50 days, will trigger a main plot "Episode" accessible on the main game menu, which grants significant permanent rewards for Development Mode, such as multiplying the Jabbercoins and EXP rewards, making it easier to get further within the 50-Day limit. As such, in the early game it's worth simply replaying the board game with each new card you unlock, enjoying the Friendship events, etc, without focusing too much on min maxing every single card.

Fragments Effect
10 1.5x EXP, 1.5x Jabbercoins
20 +1000 Jabbercoins on Day 1
30 2x EXP, 2x Jabbercoins
40 +3000 Jabbercoins on Day 1
50 3x EXP, +5000 Jabbercoins on Day 1

Every 20 Floors you complete of the Tower of Despair, you will unlock the ability to purchase the Monobeast scrolls in Development mode for only 10 monocoins from the Central Island shop (provided you have previously beaten that Monobeast in ANY previous playthrough), which will allow you to proceed to the higher level islands with more powerful stat boost squares much earlier (skipping the minibosses which drop the scrolls) and getting closer to LVL 99. As such, it is worthwhile to alternate between the Development Mode and Battle Mode after finishing an Episode because it is cyclically rewarding.

Tower Floors Complete Reward
Floor 20 Tiger Scroll
Floor 40 Snake Scroll
Floor 60 Bird Scroll
Floor 80 Horse Scroll
Floor 100 Human Scroll

Development Bonus from Rarity

The characters you develop have a set rarity. Higher rarity characters can acquire more skills, and gain more attributes and Talent Fragments from events, making it easier to develop a strong character. Aditionally, if you possess rare characters, you wil recieve bigger benefits for stopping on their events or on the same square as them. Collecting lots of cards is always beneficial.

Other Camp Participants

Camp Participants are placed around the active character's square. Stopping on a square with other characters will increase attributes and grant cards, so be sure to prioritize them.

Duel

Once in a while, you will be challenged to a duel when landing on a square with another character. Going to the character's space on Monokuma Rock (the Center Island) will trigger the battle. Winning results in a handsome reward.

Attributes

A clear description on what exactly each attribute does has not yet been discovered.
Attribute Description
Influence (HP) This is your health. The more you have, the more durable you are to enemy attacks.
Focus (MP) This is your MP, used for skills (has an initial value and recovery value).
Strength Influences physical attacks.
Defense Durability against physical attacks.
Intellect Influences intelligence skills.
Fortitude Durability against intelligence skills; affects parameter skills.
Speed Influences turn order, hit rate, and evasion rate.
Luck Influences critical hit rate and Run success rate.

Squares

Icon Name Event
DRS Level Up Square.png
Level Up Levels up your character +1 Level. On each subsequent island this square increases in efficacy (eg, Island 2 grants +2 levels, Island 3 grants +3 levels). The EXP given by these squares will increase with the rewards gained by completing Episodes - for example, Island 1 squares will grant more than the 100 EXP needed to gain a level that they normally give if landed on after the completion of Episode 1.
DRS Battle Square.png
Battle Square Fight a turn-based battle. If you win, you will win EXP and Jabbercoins. If you lose, you will be teleported back to the start square of 1st Island, or the entrance to the Miniboss dungeon you are in.
DRS Event Square.png
Event Square Triggers a random event granting a stat boost to one stat depending on your choice.
DRS Friendship Square.png
Friendship Square A "Free Time Event" style event between characters. After the conversation ends, you will gain a significant boost to one or more stats.
DRS Card Roulette Square.png
Card Roulette Square Obtain cards that give an advantage during the board game.
DRS Shop Square.png
Shop Square Spend Jabbercoins you have earned on equipment and cards here.
If you "attack" the shopkeeper, you can steal 1 item from the store if you beat their dice roll. If you lose, you will be teleported to the start square on the 1st Island.
DRS Talent Square.png
Talent Square Earn Talent Fragments which can be used to upgrade skills.
DRS Door Square.png
Doorway Square Enter the Miniboss Dungeon for that Island, where you can earn Scrolls to defeat the Monobeasts.
DRS Treasure Square.png
Treasure Chest Square Obtain powerful cards, money, or items - but beware, there are also traps with negative effects.

Cards

Cards can be earned by purchasing them from a shop, from Card Roulette squares, from Treasure Chests, or from Encounters.

Landing on a square that has a Danganronpa character pixel on it - "Encounters" - will grant the player a bonus card. These cards are specific to each character, so if you need a specific card, it can be tactically advantageous to prioritise landing on their squares if you see them nearby.

The most high value card to obtain and keep is the Success card, which guarantees a successful Surgery, significantly boosting your stats. This can be obtained primarily by landing on an Encounter with Byakuya Togami (DR1), Monokuma, Izuru Kamukura, or Monaca Towa. Be warned, this card can also be used up if you receive some other Monokub events, such as the "armour/weapon improvement" event, or the "pick a box" event, so it is advantageous to try and obtain and keep multiple copies of the Success card.
