A bunch of highschool kids have to kill someone to "succeed" while following certain rules.
In Dangan Ronpa, they're stuck in a school and they're only chance of escaping is to kill someone without being caught, while in Akuma no Riddle the whole class as the goal of killing a fellow classmate so they can be granted anything they want.
Survival genres. We see them in almost every anime. Akuma no Riddle is similar to Mirai Nikki in the sense that in order to survive or win, you have to defeat your enemies. Not only that, both anime have a darker story to them and especially action scenes.

However, the difference between Mirai Nikki & Akuma no Riddle is the characters. All of the cast members are female in Akuma no Riddle, while Mirai Nikki has both male and female participants.
