Corpse Party was a putridly pleasant surprise when it debuted on Sony’s aging PSP, combining old-school aesthetic with truly gut-churning horror. Well, it’s time to take your poor PSP back out of the mothballs for the game’s sequel Corpse Party: Book of Shadows.
According to the Playstation Blog, the sequel will be released this winter, and will explore alternate scenarios with characters from the original, although in a different “first-person point and click” fashion than the original top-down SNES style. This sounds a bit more like a visual novel than the last game, but as long as the game delivers the same brutal horror as its predecessor, it should be a treat for fans.
Just in case you haven’t had the chance to play the original, publisher XSEED has dropped the price of the original Corpse Party on the Playstation Store to $9.99 so you can bone up on the horror of Happy Host Elementary before the sequel drops.
