    Xseed you know what to do

    • Curse our time zones, I was LITERALLY gonna say the same thing ;_;

      • Shadowking58

        They’re probably going to localize it, considering at the end of Book of Shadows they say “Continue in Blood Drive” Or something to that effect.

    • azureknight

      It would be awesome if they were able to release it by Halloween 2014.

  • Himegami Aisa

    Can’t wait for this to come out! Only hope it gets localised (I’ll import if need be). Oh, and Kedouin’s a little more than a manga artist to Corpse Party— it’s his series!

  • Arcana Drill

    Cant wait for this game! loved the first two, and while knowing that they dont tend to sell much i hope Xseed picks this…..

  • Hurrah! I was hoping for a release date soon. And a shiny edition, too…

  • Eilanzer

    i have mixed feelings about this…I just loved the 2d sprites in the first game =S

    • Kenny Loh

      The 3d artworks actually look pretty good, it very cute chibi feelings(mostly see on 3ds games), i think most peoples will like it more than the 2d sprites .

      • Eilanzer

        cute ^^
        But, only seeing the game in my hands i can say if it´s a good change…
        The second game was kind of meh without the 2d sprites…

        • Kayseur

          It’s not much but you can see a couple of screenshots (or, well, one especially) on a low-res scan at Famitsu’s website.

          It doesn’t look bad at all to me, even having liked the 2D sprites a lot.

  • Detrimont

    While i didn’t play book of shadows or the psp version of the first game (because they weren’t (and probably never will be) released in AUS/NZ), i’m extremely looking forward to this game, and hopefully it’ll come AUS/NZ side

    • TrueDefault

      I hope at least it will be released in retail, so we can import it.

  • artemisthemp

    Could mean Xseed announce a Western release date ad E3

  • Kotori Itsuka

    I hope someone atleast makes a fan translation of anthology sachiko’s game of love hysteric birthday 2u. a localization would be nice too. and now I want a vita even more

  • s07195

    So… Satoshi and the others aren’t really involved anymore, except for Ayumi and Naomi?

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      No they probably will be

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    YESSS!!! the exploration from the first is back! Book of Shadows almost turn me off with its way of exploration.
    Kinda funny even though its just sprites, the ghost still care me to hell.

  • Jesse

    I can’t say I like that promo image they have for this game.

    Also, here’s a scan form Famitsu about the game:

    • chibidw

      Why, it’s almost as though something horrible is going to happen…

    • Göran Isacson

      Not sure I’m a fan of the goth loli look on those characters. Simplicity worked in favor of the previous games characters: all I can imagine is that this girl is going to get her dress stuck on a ton of different objects…

    • Kenny Loh

      wait, there also some new pics now in famitsu.

    • Rose Spinoza

      Yeah, the promo image looks like it looks like it’s just pandering to the H-loving crowd -_- . That, combined with my disapointment with the Blood Drive chapter in book of shadows makes me feel really lukewarm about this game.
      (I found the blooddrive chapter of book of shadows annoying because the characters were just OVERLY stupid considering what they had been through previously.)

  • Ouryu

    I look forward to see more, I liked the previous games.

  • joemari5

    I have seen enough hentai to know where this is going.

    • Shippoyasha

      Oh God, I wish they’d do something silly like that sometime in this series. Because the monsters are really no joke in this franchise. They are just plain out killers. No teasing or funniness to them. Just death and suffering!

      • punkchobit

        There is a silly, more ecchi manga

  • Zind Keeper

    Enough with the middle school student mutilation.

  • Aquarius

    You guys should head to the XSEED official forums to talk about this game in the Corpse Party thread.

    Tom from XSEED which is a fan of Corpse Party games, would certainly appreciate the interest from the western audience.

  • Koulamatata

    Xseed, please!

  • I want this. We NEED this! >_<

  • revenent hell

    Im quite please they reverted to the first games play style of exploration since it was more immersive to me.
    I look forward to Xseed’s release of this.

  • Aristides

    Can’t wait! =D

  • ShootThatWay

    Aiko and Magari… They’re Naho’s enemies/bullies. I can see their fates already.

    Now time to fill my wallet with substance so I can get ready for the nightmare.

  • GoombaJMR

    Yoshiki you better not die on me … >.> and you better have a good role in this game!
