What To Expect In Corpse Party: Blood Drive

By Spencer . April 30, 2013 . 6:42pm

image Mages turned Corpse Party from a standalone PC game into a series. The PSP sequel, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, was developed in house at Mages with an original story that plays more like one of 5pb’s adventure games. We asked Corpse Party producer Yasuhiko Nomura what he wants to do next with the series.


Just a heads up this contains *major* spoilers for Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. Read at your own risk!


>"In the true ending of Corpse Party, the survivors return to the real world, but the characters that died did not come back. They stayed dead. In Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, they are somewhat successful at reviving Mayu, but only partially because her face is still covered with a black spot. Book of Shadows ends on a cliffhanger so we want to finish the story that takes place with the same characters from Heavenly Host," Nomura said.

Read our earlier interview with Nomura to see how he creates horror games.


The Corpse Party series from Mages will continue with Corpse Party: Blood Drive on PlayStation Vita, which is slated for release this year. Xseed localized Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows. We hope they’ll pick up Blood Drive too.

  • MrTyrant

    Hoho yes I wanted to see what happen after that infamous scene at the end.

  • Ferrick

    is it me or does Heavenly Host Elementary School look far more grotesque than when they first fell into that dimension ?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Isn’t that what happens when you have two installments reach overseas?

  • Talmire

    Well there was certainly a lot less to this article than I assumed there would be.

    • revenent hell

      Yeah, I was surprized by that myself.

    • Anti-climatic.
      mfw I finished highlighting and reading the spoiler tag.

  • “What to expect in Corpse Party: Blood Drive”

    Death. There, I win lol.

    Don’t want to and didn’t read the spoiler, but yeah that’s going to be the end result lol

    I so can’t wait for this game =^_^=

    • Don’t worry, if you played Blood Covered and Book of Shadows then it doesn’t spoil anything for you: it’s just a recap of what happened already. Was expecting more than that though ._.

  • Raze

    I expect all the character will be death now….

    *********SPOILER QUESTION DOWN BELOW*************

    They revived Mayu !?
    I dunno if you can call that a success
    Second, Yuka is alive right?

  • I thought it was a given what Blood Drive was going to involve, after Book of Shadows, eheh.

    I’m kinda disappoint this is going to be on the Vita though, since I personally feel the PSP *isn’t* dead and the Vita’s doing awful things. (i.e. the content manager) Guess this and P4G might give me a reason to get one when it becomes cheaper. (And MIND≒0 if it gets a translation.)

    Are those tentacles coming out from the school?

    • Ricardo C

      They look like roots to me

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    I honestly can’t imagine CP ending with a happily ever after where everybody returns to life. People are going to die, probably not the entire cast; but I would be surprised if more than a couple of the original cast makes it to the end of the ordeal~.

  • gamefreak86

    Man beat first game maybe month ago. So good. got true ending. Need to get other endings so I can play extra scenarios. Game is crazy and it did but me on edge. Will grab second game soon and this when it comes out.

  • DigitalFowl

    Oh, another Mages game? So once again, more like a visual novel and less like an adventure game in the original Team GrisGris/Grindhouse vision, right?

    Count me out then.

    • DyLaN

      At least wait until the trailers is out 1st….

    • Talmire

      They’ve said that since the RPG-maker styled gameplay was generally more popular amongst the fans they’re considering it for Blood Drive.

  • Ariobimo Wicaksono

    More White Sachiko please. And maybe also Saki from Another Child.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh… so was this something he said recently? Because I have to admit it feels like a non-statement and wasted space to have a whole article that just goes “there is a sequel coming” when we already KNOW there’s a sequel coming.
