As Expected, Corpse Party: Book Of Shadows Has A Macabre Opening

Don’t be fooled by the cutesy characters, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows lives up to its name. A follow up to Corpse Party: Blood Covered Repeated Fear from 5pb, this PSP horror game has seven episodes each with their own main character. Will the ghoulish Sachiko claim more victims?



Corpse Party titles have the feel of an adventure game, but Team GrisGris made it possible to explore your surroundings instead of just seeing text. New for Book of Shadows is a spiritual corruption system where horrors drain the mental state of the game’s characters. Frightened characters become paranoid and hallucinate.


Corpse Party: Book of Shadows comes out on August 4 in Japan.

  • I hate horror games(mostly because I get scared easily~), but I seriously love the Corpse Party series, Corpse Party: Blood is really awesome and I definitely dig this one so far~

  • so the kids didnt learn there leason last time o.O

    • It’s a horror story, they absolutely never learn anything~

    Hopefully XSeed brings the first one over like we hope! I can’t wait to play the first one.

  • Corpse Party seems to enforce the statement: “The more innocent it is, the more beautiful it is to corrupt”. These characters look like they’re going be on one wild ride from their idyllic life to what’s in store for them here.

    This game looks awesome!

    Hmmmmm. This concept is kind of old, isn’t it? I’m not saying it shouldn’t be used anymore, but so far, this doesn’t look too interesting. Of course, I’m not saying anything about the whole game, but… you know.

    Love the new Op here I just beat repeated fear just last weak

  • Exciel

    Considering most of the old cast is here, is this a prequel or remake of sort? Loved the first game so I’ll definitely get my hands on this.

    • Blacksofa

      It’s 95% likely it will not leave Japan.
