Corpse Party: Blood Drive To Release This Month on Nintendo Switch and STEAM

Marvelous Europe, in partnership with XSEED Games, have announced that MAGES and 5pb’s visual novel styled survival horror game Corpse Party: Blood Drive, and sequel to the PSP Game Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC (via Steam) this October within Europe and North America.

Specifically Corpse Party: Blood Drive will be released on the 10th October 2019, which is just in time for Halloween, and be priced at £17.99 / $19.99 with a 10% launch week discount. Corpse Party: Blood Drive was originally released onto the PlayStation Vita in 2015 and continued the horror vibe that the originals were known for; but now Nintendo Switch and Steam owners will be able to experience the story for themselves with improved visuals and frame rates.

About:
While some members of Kisaragi Academy’s class 2-9 returned from their trip to the hellish, otherworldly elementary school known as Heavenly Host, many did not, and the survivors struggle on a daily basis to preserve the memories of those who were unfortunate enough to perish within its halls.

There is one ray of hope, however: an ancient tome known as the Book of Shadows. Class president Ayumi Shinozaki attempted to make use of its magic to resurrect her deceased friends once before, but only compounded the tragedy in the process. And now the book has been lost.

Or has it? When a spiritual photograph turns up, suggesting the Book of Shadows may now reside in the tattered remains of Heavenly Host, Ayumi becomes obsessed with finding it so she can make one last attempt to set things right.

What follows is nothing short of a nightmare.

Picking up two months after Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Corpse Party: Blood Drive serves as the definitive conclusion to the Heavenly Host story arc.

KEY FEATURES:

  • The Best of the Old Returns Anew, Now with a Full HD Makeover: Full Japanese voiceovers, binaural 3D audio, and the Darkening system from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows return, but are now joined by HD visuals and a vastly improved framerate for a truly hi-res horror experience!
  • Highly Detailed 3D Environments with Dynamic Lighting: Players can use an in-game flashlight to experience Heavenly Host Elementary in full 3D for the first time, with all of its formerly 2D environments meticulously recreated and greatly expanded.
  • New Gameplay Systems for More Exciting Interactions: Run for your life, disarm traps, hide in cabinets from pursuers, and more; Heavenly Host now has far more ways to kill while also providing far more options for players to fight back.
  • A Lengthy and Stunning Conclusion to the Heavenly Host Saga: Boasting 11 huge story chapters and 8 supplemental Extra Chapters, Corpse Party: Blood Drive caps off the Heavenly Host storyline in a big way, providing answers and shocking twists in equal measure.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive will be available digitally from the Nintendo eShop, for the Nintendo Switch, and on STEAM, for Windows PC, from the 10th October 2019.
