The Doors to Heavenly Host Elementary School to Open Once More – XSEED Confirm PC / 3DS Plans for Corpse Party Franchise

For gamers on the PlayStation Portable / PlayStation Vita, they have already had the opportunity to survive three jaunts into the haunted halls of Heavenly Host Elementary School. The opportunity is soon set to arise for PC Gamers. After a long wait, publisher XSEED Games have announced that Corpse Party will be arriving on the PC via Steam, GOG.com and the Humble Store starting April 25th 2016 at a standard price of $14.99.

While Corpse Party did receive a PC release in Japan before the PlayStation Portable version western markets received, it was never available outside the country. The PC version will be this original edition, featuring all the original art and voice-acting, as well as many new features exclusive to this version. Among other things, this includes multiple endings and scenes which differs from the PSP version, and four bonus chapters on top of the game’s five-chapter main story.One of these is a PC-exclusive retelling of the “Tooth” story from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, recrated with added content in classic Corpse Party adventure style gameplay.

XSEED Games have also confirmed that the PlayStation Portable edition of Corpse Party is being ported over to the Nintendo 3DS. It will once again seek to deliver a chilling visual novel style experience, where every step the characters take could be their last. This edition will feature redrawn character sprites, newly arranged music tracks, 3D art stills and four next Extra Chapters exclusive to this version.

Corpse Party on the Nintendo 3DS will receive a limited ‘Back to School Edition’ this Summer priced at $49.99. This edition will include a copy of the game alongside miniature figurines of Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara and 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. Don’t want to spend the extra money? A digital Nintendo eShop release will be available for $29.99.

About Corpse Party

In Corpse Party, players take control of a group of Japanese high school students who inadvertently engage in a pagan ritual and find themselves inexplicably transported into a whole other space: an inescapable echo of a long-since demolished school building where a series of gruesome murders once took place. They must now evade the grasp of the tortured souls who roam the halls of the doomed Heavenly Host Elementary School, lest they join the ranks of the dead themselves.

As players advance through Corpse Party, they will strive to avoid the game’s more than 20 “wrong ends,” in which tragedy takes over and one or more characters suffer a grim demise. Whether buried alive, forced to swallow scissors or cannibalized by a friend, wrong ends are often as disturbing as they are morbidly intriguing. To advance through the game, players must reach the one true ending in each of the game’s five chapters to unlock the next leg of the journey.
