***GAME BREAKING SAVE BUG***

There is currently a discussion up about this on https://www.reddit.com/r/danganronpa/comments/3ji1dj/psa_potentially_game_ruining_glitch_in_drae/ but I figured I should cross post it here, if you save after a chapter (So far it seems like chapters 1, 2, and 3) your save will NOT load, it just takes you back to the main menu. If this was your only save it's corrupt and you have to start a new game.

I have a physical edition and saved after chapter 1, thus screwing me over :(. Don't want this to happen to everyone else so hopefully this PSA will help.

Thought this was a digital only bug and I remember NIS saying they couldn't replicate it which is why it didn't get fix.

I heard that they weren't able to replicate it, but I can confirm it happens with Physical copies too

*Chapter 3 SPOILERS* possibly game-breaking bug

I have a physical copy of Ultra Despair Girls and in Chapter 3, when you play as Genocide Jack and go on the monorail, my game crashed when I used the L+X attack on Kotoko, and the game would not restart, so I tried turning off my Vita but it wouldn't turn off. I hope it doesn't ruin my save data.
I really like this game so far so I hope it won't corrupt my save files.

EDIT: Doesn't seem like there're any problems, but this still seems to be a big problem for the game.

As a somewhat-official response to this:

Unfortunately, this was a bug we did not encounter at all during our QA process and one that we could not replicate on any builds/vitas here when we first got reports of it. We were totally blindsided by this. As publishers and not developers of the game, there's unfortunately nothing we can do to fix it. We're in dialogue with Spike Chunsoft and are going from there.

In the meanttime, we deeply and sincerely apologize. The best way to avoid this would be to keep multiple saves. The problematic saves seem to be ones that the game prompts you to use, after you beat chapters. At least keep those on a separate save file and keep your main game saves on another. That's the only real solution to this as of now. This is not a 100% replicable bug and it does not affect every user, but better to be safe.

Every single game you localize ends up with game breaking bugs that never get fixed.
You always deflect blame on the developer, yet seemingly take no effort to convince them to fix the games. Witch and the hundred knight never got fixed, you also at least knew about this bug for a year now, yet it still happens. The common denominator is you, no matter what the original developer was.

It must be easy to hide behind being a mostly console exclusive developer and thus being immune to refunds. Any goodwill i once had for you has been eroded by the games i never got to finish thanks to these bugs
