Here’s How You Insert Your Face Into Over My Dead Body 2

By Sato . January 16, 2014 . 5:30pm

Earlier this week, we got some meaty details on upcoming PlayStation Vita RPG Over My Dead Body 2. One of the game’s unique features lets you use the Vita camera to take a picture of yourself, using your appearance for the first head of the family. Game Watch gives us a look at how it’ll be done.



Here’s a look at the camera feature, where you can take a picture of yourself using the PlayStation Vita camera. Afterwards, it takes certain characteristics of your face, which are then represented in the new character’s looks. Once you’re done, you’ll have the option to keep the look, retake your picture, or edit the character’s appearance.


Afterwards, you’ll be prompted to select a color theme for your family, which will also be passed down to future generations, along with characteristic appearances of the very first character you make.


Here’s a look at the family tree. Each member in the family tree will also have their will in quotes.



There will be a total of eight starting jobs, but here’s a look at the swordsman and archer, for now.




As mentioned in our earlier report, you won’t be able to form an offspring with other humans due to the family curse, but you will be able to do so with various gods and goddesses.


Over My Dead Body 2 is slated for release this summer for PlayStation Vita.

    So what do we have to do to see this one localized. The first one was passed up by X-Seed

    This game looks like a great Vita game, the colors in the screenshots will look great on the first Gen Vita’s OLED screen. It reminds me of Okami if you crossed it with a RPG. Personally this looks amazing and I hope we have a shot at seeing it come out.

    • Warboss Aohd

      Gaijinwork’s forums is a place to start.

    • TheExile285

      Wait for Sony to localize it (most likey)

      • Ric Vazquez

        Localization likely, thanks for this piece of info.

      • Micrll

        Great news! I didn’t follow all the previous articles on this game as closely before but have caught up on this now.
        Probably worth tweeting to him now that it is getting closer to show some support to get this.

    • I’m hoping for a localization as well. It just looks gorgeous and like so much fun.

  • Duo Maxwell

    “you won’t be able to form an offspring with other humans due to the family curse, but you will be able to do so with various gods and goddesses.”

    Doesn’t sound like a curse to me.

    • Warboss Aohd

      you age rapidly to the point you live only 2 years

      • Shinobikens

        Doesn’t matter had sex

        • harmonyworld

          with god/godess no less!

          • MrTyrant

            Best sex, fuck yes!

        • TheExile285

          Yeah…. Once >_>

          • God

            Doesnt matter had sex

  • TrueDefault

    Wow, the portrait doesn’t look like her at all! Digging the art style though.

    • Yeah I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for/at.

    • Lumi

      A bit like the 3DS Mii thing, but worse accuracy.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I know this title is Over My Dead Body but this is ridiculous.

    (Just kidding).

  • Anewme…Again

    I wonder what are the certain characteristics, since the picture don’t look like her at all.
    Edit: Actually a bit of the front hair are similar.

    • JustThisOne

      Maybe they decided to tweak the character creation a little more or something?

  • Kevin Lor

    Is it Game Over if no god wants to sex you up?

  • Game looks very interesting; hope it gets localized. That art style is absolutely fabulous.

    But I really don’t see how the character looks anything like the woman getting her picture taken. I don’t expect such a function to be that accurate, but it’s bizarre that the company used this for an example. XP

    • Ryo-kun

      She looks like a guy, even. Or I’ve been seeing too many bishies so I can’t distinguish between a boyish girl or a girly boy.

      • Brandonmkii

        The character inheriting her features probably is a guy. I think it’s more like passing on the shape of the face, hairline, nose length, to future generations, and is not supposed to be a picture perfect portrait of the person presented :p

        • We know it’s not going to be anywhere near picture perfect; the point is those basic things you mention don’t really resemble the person pictured at all. Not that it ultimately matters of course, but if this example is anything to go by it will probably be easier to get a closer match to yourself if you just input everything manually.
          Also the character pictured is most likely female, if going by the kimono. Women’s kimono have the sash higher up (as is the case in the picture); for men’s kimono the sash is lower like a belt. (You can see the following two pictures for reference, actually.)

  • tubers

    The girl that does the marriage ceremony is so cute :)

    She changes her “coat”/fur color depending on season :P

    • Micrll

      Thanks for that bit of info, I was a bit confused as to why she kept changing and this makes perfect sense.

    • icecoffemix

      Is she… a rat girl? :o

  • So what are the chances of this getting localized? It looks really nice :3 Also, the woman looks nothing like her avatar xD

  • Chido55

    This game is looking so gorgeous, I really want it for my Vita.

  • Nitraion

    Lol i get Okami and monster rancher vibe at same time…
    The photo accuracy is disappointing but this game is interesting
    Random question:
    Since god can live thousand years than year by any chance is this game allow you to remarried your mother/father? XD
    also what happen by any chance you didn’t married in 2 years lol?
