Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, the sequel to the scariest game that we’ve ever played, will haunt your PlayStation Portable and Vita from 15th January in North America, publisher XSEED has confirmed. The nightmare simulator will set you back just $19.99, which sounds pretty reasonable to us. A European launch will follow, but the specifics are still being hammered out behind the scenes.

The dark visual novel is set before, during, and after the events of the original game, which “chronicled the struggles of seven high-school classmates who all got trapped in a cursed elementary school that shouldn't even exist”. The title features eight chapters, the last of which can only be unlocked by people who finished the first release or are able to find every wrong ending in Book of Shadows.

Beware: this series is actually pretty scary. In fact, we're still having bad dreams after playing the last game.
