The unusual PSP adventure title — derived from an amateur project — boasts hand-drawn 2D sprite art, and depicts the tale of a group of high-school students trapped in a haunted elementary school. The school plays host to the souls of children who have vanished over the years.
"This is a game we believe will instantly captivate fans of action, suspense and horror and leave a one of a kind impact," said XSEED president Jun Iwasaki. "Through its unique visual style, unpredictable storytelling and impressive audio cues, Corpse Party will test players' mental strength and mesmerize them through its well-crafted mystery and intricate character-driven narrative, all while delivering a truly frightening experience that's sure to keep everyone on the edges of their seats."
The game's due out this Fall.
