Celebrate With A Corpse Party The Anthology: Hysteric Birthday 2U Trailer

By Ishaan . May 6, 2012 . 1:30pm

Corpse Party The Anthology: Sachiko’s Game of Love – Hysteric Birthday 2U is a different take on the Corpse Party series. Instead of a 16-bit horror story, this is a love comedy spin-off. 5pb/Mages released a trailer for the upcoming game this week:



A limited edition of Corpse Party The Anthology comes with Corpse Party Missing Footage, an original video animation on DVD.

    After playing the first game, i´m simply unable to see anything from this franchise as comedy, it´s just…wrong


    • Eilanzer

      c´mon…that scissor…cake…murder…birthday…It´s a match made in heaven o/


    • Barrylocke89

      Agreed, but at the very least, maybe the OVA will add/flesh out the story of the original and Book of Shadows. I wonder if the Missing Footage has to do with the mysterious “Sin” tape…assuming that that tape isn’t one of the other tapes mentioned  in Blood Covered/Repeated Fear.

    • 4shiki

      Not to me. Ever heard of anthologies or fan discs? They’re like expansions, with some of them being comedic. This seems to be something like that.

      Personally, I’m excited.

  • I still…don’t know how to feel about this.
    The new characters seem nice though. The white uniform girls look like they come from a religious high school sent to fulfill a mission or something.

  • Eilanzer

    lol this is sooo sick and FUN XD

  • LynxAmali


    Why did they have to do that?


  • Juuu

    Hm, that missing “fottage” OVA seems interesting. ;] Haha.

    Anyways, I think it’s interesting that they’re adding in some new characters, and I hope these make their appearances in the next proper installment of the franchise as well.

  • MCoelho

    I’m pretty sure that my avatar nailed my reaction from this trailer.

    Waiting the OVA though.

  • …….i don’t fink i’ll eva understand you humiez.

    • Richard Wolff

      i love your comments really the only reason i come to this site

  • Blue_card_

    Oh boy, I sure can’t wait to see that missing fottage.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    I still don’t see why people are so negative about the whole thing :/. OK it was a horror game so its not allowed to have a comedic spin off?

    • Yeah, I know what you’re saying – they’re just trying to broaden the franchise.  I think it’s just the mood whiplash between the two.  For me personally, I’ll wait to see what people say before buying it, but visual novel “love comedies” usually aren’t my thing.

    • Barrylocke89

      There’s nothing WRONG with a comedy spinoff, but that sort of game isn’t normally my thing (although to be fair, horror isn’t normally my thing either). And the atmosphere/tone of the first corpse party is what drew me to it in the first place.

  • /|/|ichael

    Every time I save up to buy Corpse Party, I end up buying something else. I’ll play the game eventually!

  • Nitraion

    I might try this the first game i just see my friends playing and just see the CG never playing myself ^^” even i playing maybe i use Mute button im okay with CG but not okay with the scream especially girls….

    • Go2hell66

       hahahaa its really not that bad, true the sound effects are really good but the 2D sprites kind of kill any chance this game had of being scary

      • Barrylocke89

        Your mileage may vary on that one, that anatomical model freaked ME out when I played, among other things :O

        • Go2hell66

           i think the only part that really freaked me out was the black shadow in the infirmary, other than that don’t think anything in this game could really spook me :/

          • Barrylocke89

            Maybe’s its just the way I played. I made sure to play in the dark with the headphones on by myself for maximum scares. It also helps that horror isn’t normally my thing normally.

          • Nitraion

            man just don’t play this game with headphones on ><

      • Nitraion

        Yeah my thought of this game why they choose “cute” voice actress then kill the char and their scream so painful i can’t take it XD

      • punkchobit

        I disagree completely. The story and voice acting made me care for the characters. Other horror games try to scare the player, but in CP I was scared for the lives of the characters. I didn’t want them to suffer.

  • From horror to comedy, I’ll play it for sure. Still, i hope they will relesh a US ver of Corspe Party: Book of Shadows soon

  •  What is there to do in these corpse party games? Is it just like a virtual novel or are there other elements to them?

    • The 1st game played like an SNES RPG without battles where you did make decisions like in a visual novel, but you could walk around and explore.  The 2nd game was more of a straight visual novel and I suspect that’s how this one will be.

  • Go2hell66

    finished the 1st game yesterday, god i need more 0_0

  • Mister_Nep

    “Missing Fottage”? Oh Japan. You are so bad at English.

  • ………………………………..

  • I wish they’d actually make an anime of the first game.
