XSEED Games has announced that chilling visual novel-style horror adventure Corpse Party will release in late October.
In the Nintendo 3DS exclusive, a group of Japanese high school students inadvertently engage in a pagan ritual that transports them into an inescapable echo of a demolished school building where gruesome murders once took place.
Remastered from the 2011 PlayStation Portable release, this new rendition boasts redrawn, high-resolution character sprites, newly arranged music tracks in binaural 3D audio, and 3D art stills, and, most importantly, four new Extra Chapters exclusive to this version. These will provide insight into lesser-shown characters, and expand on plot elements that were largely left unexplained before.
There will be a limited Corpse Party: Back to School Edition physical release ($49.99), that will contain high-quality miniature figurines of characters Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara, and a soundtrack CD with nearly 80 minutes of music from the game. The game will also be available to purchase digitally on the Nintendo eShop, priced at $29.99 in North America, £29.99 (€29.99) in Europe, and $49.95 in Australia.
Corpse Party will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS in North America on October 25th, and in Europe on October 26th.
