Double the corpses, double the scares.
Today XSEED Games announced that they’ll be bringing remastered versions of Corpse Party to Nintendo 3DS and PC. While the two platforms will receive different games, they are both remakes of the original game in the Japanese horror series that originally released in 1996.
The Nintendo 3DS version is a remastered rendition of the 2011 PSP release, itself a remake of the original 1996 game. If that sounds complicated, it’s because it is. Character sprites have been redrawn for the Nintendo release, and a new soundtrack will make it even scarier than before. There are also four extra chapters to spook new and returning players. No exact release date has been announced, but it’s expected to come out in Summer 2016.

Meanwhile the PC version, which will launch April 25, is a direct localization of the original PC version which was only released in Japan. It also features four bonus chapters, one of which is PC exclusive. It’ll be available for $14.99

Finally, XSEED Games announced that they’ll be releasing a limited edition physical release for Corpse Party on 3DS for $49.99. It’ll include the game’s soundtrack and miniature figures of Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara. Those that don’t want to fork over that amount will be glad to know it’ll also see a digital release priced at $29.99.
It’s great to see the beloved PSP horror game coming to new platforms. The visual novel gameplay is a perfect fit for both systems, and XSEED is making an investment in the series’ future here.
