Corpse Party, perhaps the most macabre game for PSP, is doing a 180 with Corpse Party The Anthology: Sachiko’s Game of Love Hysteric Birthday 2U. Team GrisGris is taking the horror series and making a comedy game.
Sachiko’s curse over Heavenly Host Elementary weakens around her birthday and in this game her fate has been reset (although she still looks ghastly). Corpse Party The Anthology begins in the school’s auditorium where students are called together for a culture festival where the romantic comedy theme is announced and thus begins Sachiko’s Hysterical Birthday.
Corpse Party The Anthology has a new cast of characters like Satsuki, a female classmate who always carries a bag of potato chips with her, and Aiko, who is friends with Sachiko. The game is designed as a simple visual novel where you choose how the story proceeds.
5pb rounded up a team of writers to create storylines including: Teru Achi from the manga series Room No. 1301, Kaya Kizaki from Dragon Crisis, Gou Zappa from Shin Koihime Musou, Chabou Higurashi from Memories Off, and the original of Corpse Party. Team GrisGris is supervising the game’s scenario.
Corpse Party The Anthology: Sachiko’s Game of Love Hysteric Birthday 2U is slated for release on PSP later this year. Check out Famitsu’s reveal to see screenshots from the game.
