Over My Dead Body 2 For PS Vita Coming To The West

By Ishaan . April 14, 2014 . 7:33am

The game we’ve been calling Over My Dead Body 2, an RPG for the PlayStation Vita being developed by Sony in Japan, is coming to North America and Europe. The game will be titled Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines.


(The game’s full title in Japan is “Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke”. It’s a follow-up to an RPG that was released for the PSOne.)


Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines revolves around a cursed Japanese clan that has a maximum lifespan of two years. Your job is to help lift the curse, while ensuring that each generation of the clan is more powerful than the one before it.


Sony have not yet announced a timeframe for the game’s release.

  • Six

    This wasn’t on my radar, but I feel as if I should buy it out of principle.

  • ekibyougami

    -SAO:Hollow Fragments (Taiwanese version for the ENG subs)
    -IA/VT Colorful (LE)
    -Borderlands 2 (probably if they fix the frame rate drops)
    -SS Delta (eng)
    -Freedom Wars (eng)
    -This (eng)
    -Toukiden Kiwami/Ultimate (soon — most likely 2015)

    Good news for Vita owners; Bad news for our wallets xD

    • AlteisenX

      My list is longer than this x[. Not to mention I’ll be picking up Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright and SSB on 3DS… Ow.

      • ekibyougami

        I have a few games more to add, but that was just the list of games I’m 100% sure to buy :D

    • Not to mention:
      -Dangan Ronpa 2
      -Hatsune Miku 2nd
      -new Blazblue and Xblaze
      -Firefly’s Diary (LE)

      I swear, this system seems tailor-made for me sometimes…

      • ekibyougami

        Got PDF 2nd so I won’t probably double dip by buying the english version though (and since I have the Japanese version of PDf 1, I won’t be able to transfer the modules and accessories from the JP version of PDf 1 to the Eng version of PDF 2nd).
        Not sure about Mind/Zero, but Akiba’s Trip 2 (eng) and Danganronpa 2 are also on my watch list but I’m still not too sure if I’d get them.

        • TrueDefault

          I’m getting Akiba’s trip for my Ps3… It looks like a more stable version.

      • chroma816

        Are we sure Firefly’s Diary is coming over? Because I’m really interested in that.

        • No word on that; I should have specified better, but I plan to pick up the LE version from Japan. Should be quite playable as an import though.

          • chroma816

            Fair enough – they did say that there wasn’t supposed to be too much text.

          • X_Bacon

            Is there any confirmation that the LE will have a physical game cartridge? I’ve seen conflicting info on that.

            …or perhaps you plan on switching accounts anyway?

          • Seems it will probably be a digital code with the LE, but I’m not certain. Regardless I have both an NA and Japanese account; I switch between the two pretty regularly.

      • MaximDualBlade

        and demon gaze.

      • Learii

        Hatsune Miku 2nd is coming but I not sure about vita version

      • Disgaea 4 vita too =p

      • TrueDefault

        As well as Love Live and Kancolle Kai for me!

    • Franggio Hogland

      Pfft, my wallet is fine. BTW would you please take these pills and lay down in that bathtub filled with ice? Don’t mind the sharp objects I’m holding.

    • I think my wallet gave up trying to stop me. It’s been silent for months while I’ve been buying games ( ._.)

      • Greek-God88

        maybe its …dead.

        • Noooo! It must live so I can buy even more games! Maybe… Maybe It’s just mad and-and if I leave it some change it’ll talk to me again? ( :A;)

    • TheGioG

      Sony’s trying to do me in, I just know it. Well, off to go find me some new jobs (grass cutting and pot smashing only get my wallet so far…)

      • otakumike

        Careful which pots you smash or you might wind up with less than you started…

        • GH56734

          however (besides surprisingly expensive pots) the idea of breaking a pot only to find a rupoor wasn’t exploited enough in the series barring the occasional minigame

    • tubers

      DIGIMON!!!!!!!!!! CS :)

      If the VITA is able to get a localized SAO, Digi and IA, wow! My king localization device :)

  • Sentsuizan_93

    This pleases me greatly~ ^o^/

  • Kai2591



    please keep the Japanese voice here too *begs*

    (hmm…is it finally time I get a Vita…?)

  • Kaien

    Fuck yes!

  • Yay vita games!

  • Lumi

    Just wondering, is there going to be a Chinese release of this? The Japanese font fits the game style perfectly and I’m not sure how will the English one go.

    EDIT oh wait there is one. yay for choice!

  • The big game I’ve been hoping for and was least sure of making it over… and it’s really coming!!!

  • Guest

    So many announcements, good time to buy a Vita.

  • Luis Camargo


    • Lastlight


  • Alex Sargeant


    I mean..if this is that it’s a hell of a thing.

  • BitBoy

    i thought this was a joke?! ALL THREE!¿¿!?!?!¿ XD!!!!!

  • Clairis Cannon

    Aw yeah

  • I can’t even… OH EM GEEE I am so happy! My wallet not so much but I don’t even care haha I can’t wait ot play this and so many other games (;~;) I seriously need to get cracking on my backlog of games.

  • Took you long enough, you son of a dog. I like the localised name too.

  • Micrll

    Dreams do come true! Of all the games that I was hoping would get localized this was my top pick. It continues to look amazing in all of the screenshots and videos I have seen of it running. This is exclusive content that vita has been crying out for! Day one purchase and if somehow there is a limited or collectors edition I will be picking that up as well. Looks like Shuhei Yoshida won’t be having that heart attack after all :) https://twitter.com/yosp/status/378123617201946625

    • God

      And still no news on TWEWY2…

  • harmonyworld


  • Tanicia Marshall

    Birthday is in June all the birthday money I get will go into a Vita and the massive amount of games I want. Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection, Hatsune Miku 2nd, Demon Gaze, Conception, Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed and probably many more in the coming days. And with Playstation announcing that newer model the older ones could be less expensive so it it the perfect time to finally buy one.

  • Balalaika

    So there is justice in the world! Thanks Sony!!

  • Kenny Loh

    It just like what i say, it a Japan Studio games, so it will get localized, i am happy that most peoples and not only Japan & Asia will play this masterpiece, hoping the next game get localized is Tales of Hearts R(since it list in gamestop) but still just a rumor until now.

  • SirRichard

    A legitimate and fully welcome surprise, this. Good pick, Sony, can’t wait to give it a shot.

  • Earthjolly

    So i guess this mean sony doesnt have to show anything about the vita in E3 now eh?

    • Julio D. Zulkarnain

      Personally, I hope FFX-X2’s satisfied SE and results in FFXII : International Zodiac System HD and Type-0 localization for Vita announcement in E3.

  • This is awesome. All these announcements make me glad to have been an early adopter of the Vita. My money’s worth for my favourite handheld system is going to be coming soon! Ah yeah!

  • Lissomia

    I am so happy the vita is getting more games, oh my gosh! I’ve had the system for two years now and it’s absolutely amazing, it just lacks games. (although lately we’re getting tons! finally! :) )

  • MaximDualBlade

    yeeeeeeeeeeees. For the bazzillionth time, I love the art of this game!

  • Kornelious

    I recently looked into this game and it looks pretty good, I’ll likely pick it up. But I’m mostly surprised that this was announced before it was released in japan! That’s rare these days X)

  • Schiller

    Please keep the awesome cover art for the western release .___.

  • GH56734

    Oreshika didn’t only have that PS1 release. It had a PSP remake in 2011, and that seems to be the most desirable version right now.

    It’s not a a simple “remake” that strips out most of the events/story arcs, the challenge, and the battle system that made the game unique in the first place like it was with Popolocrois PSP.

    Beware though (even though this is obvious enough..): the story is DEPRESSING. In a way that gives Valkyria Profile a run for its money.

  • Holy crap all these Sony localizations at once.
    Hope this is standalone cause we never got the first.

    • Romored

      I think no one did. It was never released outside Japan, and it’s 15 years old. I doubt it will have that many links to the first game.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        It received a PSP remake in 2011.

        • Romored

          Was it localized?

          • JonathanisPrimus


  • Learii

    yes I can’t wait

  • Godmars

    And someone needs to get a Vita…

    • MrTyrant

      You and me both…

  • Audie Bakerson

    Titlewise I can’t really say I’m too big on putting 俺/おれ/ore in (standard) romaji. It’s one of those words (like 伊達/だて/date) that looks too much like an existing English word and will lead to people getting completely the wrong pronunciation.

    Glad this is coming over, but it’s just something that bugs me.

  • laurenhiya21

    YESSS~ I didn’t think this would ever be localized :D I don’t even have a Vita and I’m super excited for when this game comes out~

  • chroma816

    Very happy this is coming over. I knew Sony/Studio Japan wouldn’t disappoint.

  • CDM




    I’ve got this and Freedom Wars. Now all I need left for my life to feel complete is God Eater 2 in english…

    • Yes…. GE2 announcement MUST be made…

  • Lastlight

    “No games on the vita”

  • Darkwing7


  • KuroNathan

    Nice! I’ve been following this game. It looks super stylish if nothing else, like an okami rpg.

  • Prinny Dood

    Now all i need is shinovi versus and im good dood!

  • Ban The Jackass

    Maybe I should get a PSV… But I probably won’t have enough time for it ): Argh but these games argh.

  • artemisthemp

    Looks like Sony E3 this year could be very very interesting

  • ztype

    Okay time for me to get a Vita already…damn

  • CervantesPR

    Vita putting the SMACKDOWN this year!

  • Deademon

    I hope we get to keep the Japanese voices
