Marvelous Europe and Studio Nanafushi have revealed that DEAD OR SCHOOL will release on Nintendo Switch next month.
This 2.5D side-scrolling adventure takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Humans have been forced to live in isolation underground for fear of the zombie infestation above them.
After hearing stories about high school life above ground from her grandmother, the game’s protagonist, Hisako, dreams of experiencing this mysterious and energetic lifestyle for herself. Wearing her grandmother’s old school uniform, she sets out to reclaim the city and go to school.
That will see her travel across Tokyo using the subway system, exploring locations such as Shinjuku, Asakusa, Akihabara and Roppongi. There, she must use both close and ranged combat to defeat the zombie horde that has overthrown the city, with hidden collectables revealing the truth behind the apocalypse.
DEAD OR SCHOOL will release for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on 13th March 2020.
