XSEED has announced that the horror-visual novel series Corpse Party will releasing on the Nintendo 3DS. Additionally, the company has set a release date for the long awaited PC version set for April 25.

The 3DS version will also have a limited ‘Back to School Edition’ physical run, priced at $49.99. This will include:

  • Miniature figurines of Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara
  • Soundtrack CD-80 minutes

XSEED has sent this press release about their upcoming game:

In Corpse Party, players take control of a group of Japanese high school students who inadvertently engage in a pagan ritual and find themselves inexplicably transported into a whole other space: an inescapable echo of a long-since demolished school building where a series of gruesome murders once took place. They must now evade the grasp of the tortured souls who roam the halls of the doomed Heavenly Host Elementary School, lest they join the ranks of the dead themselves.

Corpse Party is presented using crisp 2D sprite graphics in a classic 16-bit style, brought to life with gruesome and horribly detailed hand-drawn anime-style portraits and art stills featuringvividly descriptive text, and binaural 3D audio in the Nintendo 3DS iteration, players’ minds are prone to wander, providing a uniquely engrossing horror experience. Put on a pair of headphones and Corpse Party becomes even more terrifying, with creepy background noisesthat bring the terror of the game’s environment directly to players’ ears.

As players advance through Corpse Party, they will strive to avoid the game’s more than 20 “wrong ends,” in which tragedy takes over and one or more characters suffer a grim demise. Whether buried alive, forced to swallow scissors or cannibalized by a friend, wrong ends are often as disturbing as they are morbidly intriguing. To advance through the game, players must reach the one true ending in each of the game’s five chapters to unlock the next leg of the journey. The game features several “true” endings depending on how many characters survive the journey through the haunted school – and at Heavenly Host Elementary, survival is no easy task.

Corpse Party is coming to Nintendo 3DS at a later date, but the PC version will be released on April 25.

  • I really hope we get the same binaural audio on the PC version, it was incredibly creepy/awesome on the PSP 😀
