Earlier this week it emerged that XSEED was planning to bring mature horror title Corpse Party to North America, thanks to an ESRB rating. As previously mentioned this is actually a remastered port of a sequel on PSP, Corpse Party: Blood Covered ...Repeated Fear, but is being rebranded to make a splash in the West.
XSEED has now confirmed a Summer release for this linear horror experience on 3DS in North America, with the following description of what the game will have to offer.
Remastered from the 2011 PSP game, the Nintendo 3DS rendition of Corpse Party will feature redrawn, high-resolution character sprites, newly arranged music tracks, and 3D art stills, as well as four new Extra Chapters exclusive to this version that provide insight into lesser-shown characters and plot elements previously left unexplained.
It's confirmed that a 'Back to School' limited edition will arrive with a price-tag of $49.99 - it'll include "miniature figurines of characters Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara, as well as a soundtrack CD containing nearly 80 minutes of music from the game not previously featured on the 'Songs of the Dead' compilation, including three tracks exclusive to this Nintendo 3DS version". A concept image for it is below.
Those happy to have the download version will only have to pay $29.99, it should be said.
It'll be interesting to see how this mature title performs on 3DS; you can see a teaser trailer and screenshots below; let us know what you think.
