Corpse Party, the series of Horror games that XSEED Games/Marvelous USA has published in the west since 2011’s original digital only release on PSP will be expanding it’s reach later this year. Marvelous USA (otherwise known as XSEED Games) have announced the long anticipated release date for Corpse Party‘s PC release in the west for later this month – April 25th – and have confirmed that they’ve acquired Corpse Party‘s 3DS enhanced port for a later release this summer.
The PC version will sell for $14.99 on Steam, Humble Store, and GOG digital distribution platforms – and is unrated by the ESRB. In addition to the 5 main story chapters included in their original PSP release of the game, Corpse Party on the PC will include 4 additional chapters exclusive to the PC release – including a retelling of one of the chapters from the sequel, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows – as well as a variety of new endings and scenes that differ in comparison to the PSP/3DS release.
Later this summer, Marvelous USA will release Corpse Party‘s 3DS version in the west. Much like the PC release, the 3DS version will include 4 additional chapters exclusive to the 3DS release, alongside redrawn character sprite, newly arranged music tracks, and 3D art stills. Marvelous USA will be bringing this version to retail as well as digital, with a $49.99 limited “Back to School Edition” physical release featuring miniature figurines of series characters Naomi Nakashime and Seiko Shinohara, as well as a soundtrack CD containing music from the game not previously included in last year’s Corpse Party: Blood Drive‘s “Songs of the Dead” compilation. The game will, of course, also see a digital release for $29.99. Unlike the PC release, the 3DS version of the title has been rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB.
Marvelous USA has unveiled two new trailers to commemorate today’s announcement – you can find them embedded below. The 3DS video is on the top, while the PC video will be on the bottom.
