Return To Indie Horror in Corpse Party (2021)
Good news today for fans of XSEED and Halloween in general. They’re bringing their acclaimed indie horror series, Corpse Party, to a host of new systems as Corpse Party (2021). Those systems include the following – PC (Steam, GOG and Humble), Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One and Series X|S. The game is coming out on October 20th, and best of all, it will feature brand new content added to the base game experience.
Corpse Party (2021) will be pretty affordable at only $19.99 digitally, as well as boasting a 10% discount for the duration of launch week. And if you already own the original Corpse Party on Steam or GOG, you can get the newest version for 25% off, or vice versa.
For those somehow unfamiliar with Corpse Party, the series follows the misadventures of students trapped in the Heavenly Host Elementary School. The grounds are badly haunted, and it will take all their wits and daring just to survive the night. The main game hosts 5 chapters of horrors, with new Extra Chapters adding to the lore, as well as introducing 2 new characters. You can read more key details below:
- Atmospheric Retro-Style Graphics – 16-bit-style visuals based on the original indie game’s designs paired with gruesome descriptions and heart-pounding sound design will have players’ imaginations running wild with visions of horror
- Adventure-Style Gameplay Where Every Choice Counts – As a cross between a point-and-click adventure game and a battleless RPG, Corpse Party lets players explore every corner of Heavenly Host Elementary and make choices that significantly change the course of the story and its characters’ fates
- New Extra Chapters Add to the “Fun” – Two original Extra Chapters expand on the relationship between series favorites Ayumi and Yoshiki, as well as introducing Miku Shirayume and Ryoka Iwami, two brand new characters with their own intriguing roles to play in the grisly legend of Heavenly Host Elementary
- Innovative Sound Design – Listen to the fully voiced Japanese audio and enjoy another level of immersion thanks to binaural 3D recording techniques that create a simulated surround sound experience for headphone users for another dimension in horror
