Earlier today XSEED Games announced that they’ll be releasing Corpse Party (2021) for PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam, GOG and the Humble Store. The game will be out this upcoming October 20th. Various platforms will have a discount during the initial launch week. On Xbox and Switch the game will be 10% off at launch. On PS4 it will be 10% off only for PS Plus members. On PC, XSEED says that the game will also come bundled with the original Corpse Party by GrisGris for a 25% discount on the complete bundle. Or if you already have the original Corpse Party on Steam or GOG, you can get that 25% off on the 2021 version releasing later this month. This new 2021 version of Corpse Party comes with some brand new content which you can read about down below. Also down below is the brand new announcement trailer for the game.

The haunted halls of Heavenly Host Elementary School are waiting for their next victim! Based on the cult classic that started the series in 1996, Corpse Party (2021) has been updated for the next generation of horror fans while retaining its 16-bit charm. In addition to the five main story chapters, each with multiple gruesome endings, the title features 16 “Extra Chapters” expanding the series’ lore, characters, and relationships, including two brand-new episodes introducing new characters with intriguing roles to play. The “Extra Chapters” included in this release are also fully voiced in Japanese for the first time in the West.

Key Features

  • Atmospheric Retro-Style Graphics -16-bit-style visuals based on the original indie game’s designs paired with gruesome descriptions and heart-pounding sound design will have players’ imaginations running wild with visions of horror

  • Adventure-Style Gameplay Where Every Choice Counts -As a cross between a point-and-click adventure game and a battleless RPG, Corpse Party lets players explore every corner of Heavenly Host Elementary and make choices that significantly change the course of the story and its characters’ fates

  • New Extra Chapters Add to the “Fun” -Two original Extra Chapters expand on the relationship between series favorites Ayumi and Yoshiki, as well as introducing Miku Shirayume and Ryoka Iwami, two brand new characters with their own intriguing roles to play in the grisly legend of Heavenly Host Elementary

  • Innovative Sound Design -Listen to the fully voiced Japanese audio and enjoy another level of immersion thanks to binaural 3D recording techniques that create a simulated surround sound experience for headphone users for another dimension in horror
