Corpse Party: Blood Drive Gives Us Another Look At The New Characters

By Sato . June 10, 2014 . 1:17am


The Corpse Party saga continues from the PSP game, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, to PlayStatioN Vita with Corpse Party: Blood Drive. In this story Ayumi Shinozaki will need to get the Book of Shadows to bring her friends back to life. 5pb shows us the game’s opening video.


If you haven’t been following the series, the sequel takes place two months after Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, where Ayumi finds herself severely ill from the effects of black magic. However, she was saved by Naomi Nakashima, who managed to take her to the hospital just in time.


At the hospital, she meets a girl who claims to be a spiritual associate of her sister, Hinoe, who then tells her that she must retrieve the Book of Shadows, as a message passed on from Hinoe.


Once she’s dismissed from the hospital, Ayumi then meets a mysterious young man who tells her that the book can also be used to bring her friends back to life…


Corpse Party: Blood Drive is slated for release in Japan on July 24, 2014 for PlayStation Vita.

    2 month after the 1st game? Not the 2nd? Hmm

    • Shippoyasha

      It should be right after the 2nd game (Book of Shadows) ended, because only one chapter in BoS was a sequel. The rest told the stories of characters you barely saw in the first game.

    • Guest

      Book of Shadows is an alternate path/what if/explanation of the first game with a prelude to the sequel.

    • Sato

      Ah thanks, edited for clarification

  • DragKudo

    Man i am so confused about the story. WHat the hell happened? I thought they made it out of the school? Did i get the bad ending?

    • Postnjam

      I think that a few made it out of the school, I remember alot of characters dying, as I never played a route were they all survived and this game is about bringing those who died back to life, it’s clear that those with the blacked out faces were the ones who died.

      • Go2hell66


        the route where they all survived wasn’t cannon, only a few of them made it out school, can’t remember which ones off hand

        i think by the end of book of shadows there are only 2 of them left

        • ShootThatWay

          Only the last part of Book of Shadows is canon. The game main goal was to tell the stories of the other characters and add what if scenarios.

          The ones that made it out of the school alive are the ones from the true ending of Corpse Party Blood Covered.
          It just happens that only Ayumi and Naomi went on a ghost adventure alone because they are more desperate in bringing their friends back/trying to get people to remember them. Plus, Ayumi was trying to figure out why Naho was remembered when no one else was.

          • Go2hell66

            i thought ayumi and naomi were the only ones that survived in corpse party blood covered?(and maybe satoshi, can’t really remember my memory is bad)

          • ShootThatWay

            Satoshi, Yoshiki, Yuka, Ayumi and Naomi.
            They’re actually the original 5 from the dante-98 game, too.

          • Go2hell66

            wait yuka & yoshiki survived??? could have sworn they got killed by the giant zombie guy

          • ShootThatWay

            There is a Corpse Party OVA did you watch those? Maybe that’s what you’re remembering. :P

        • Postnjam

          I haven’t played book of shadows yet as it didn’t come out in Europe.

          • DizzyGear

            Yes it did. Its on PSN and its even Vita compatible.

          • Postnjam

            Wait here while I scream at the bloke who told me it wasn’t…..


            Cool, going to get it now.

        • DragKudo

          in the first i remember booking it out the school. MC, his sister, Blondie, and the other chick who almost hung herself. Guess i gotta play it over again.

    • Go2hell66


      nah most of them died.

      • DragKudo

        Sorry when i said they i meant the ones who didn’t die.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          They are going back in to save their friends, ethier by bringing them back alive or at least bringing the bodies back so they can exist again.

  • DragKudo

    All confusion aside how would a Corpse Party fighter by Arc systems sound?

    • Raze

      It will be like celebrity deathmatch with anime character but 2D

  • Land of Green Pasture

    omg dem GEMA

  • Yagami Mao

    nice music. wanna see the actual gameplay soon.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      They’ve shown plenty of it

      • Yagami Mao

        nah it was just 1 or 2 min. I want more than that.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I think that’s more then enough, if you’ve seen dead patient’s gameplay it’s pretty much the same thing. Save maybe a few improvements, it’s not a shooter or a fighter so beyond showing a little bit more of the world you can already have an idea of what it’s like.

  • EQeE

    Do want.

  • Rose Spinoza

    While I really loved the other Corpse Party games, I juuuust might skip this one. I’m not sure if I can take anymore of Ayumi and her newfound stupidity. (which, she picked up in the Blood Drive chapter of Book of Shadows apparently.)

    • ShadowKazuni

      Y’know, Ayumi isn’t the only character you’ll be playin’… so deal with her and get with Satoshi, Satoshi’s been seen in gameplay screens.

    • Raztune

      Have fun missing out on a great game then. Ayumi is a great character.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    Wasn’t it her sister that saved her and not naomi?

    • I think they mean that Naomi took her to hospital after her sister took the hit. Maybe her sacrifice wasn’t enough to keep Ayumi entirely unscathed.

  • Kornelious

    Man, I still need to get the first two games before this comes out X(
    Looks freaking creepy so far though :D

  • Kotori Itsuka


    • Anesia Hunter

      didn’t they say no to 2U? and aren’t we still waiting on word about dead patient?

      • Kotori Itsuka

        They said no to 2U!? WTF IS THIS SHIET!? Please tell me somebody is working on a english patch

        • The never really said no 2U, but that it was quite unlikely. Now, seeing as how Azusa, Inumaru, Satsuki and Aiko are gonna be in the game (they were introduced in 2U) and specially in Azusa’s case, probably play an important role, they may be forced to release 2U in order to make Blood Drive understandable, since there are a few ways they could be heavily tied together.

  • DigitalFowl

    Hey, remember when this series was about some fucked up spooky japanese horror stuff that made you think the spirit of old school japanese horror was alive and well?

    Yeah, I do too… Oh well, guess a good thing can’t last forever, eh?

  • InsertOffensiveUsernameHere

    If you played the original PC-98 version, you know who survives in the game.

  • Sardorim

    Naomi, what happened to your eye?!
