Marvelous announced that the post-apocalyptic hack and slash RPG Dead or School is coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Last month we saw a listing via Amazon UK, but we now have a trailer along with a March 13, 2020 release date.
Check out the trailer below:
Originally released on Steam back in 2018, and previously released in Japan onto the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2019, Dead or School takes place in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo where humans live in isolation underground in fear of the Zombie infestation above ground. After hearing stories of high school life above ground from her grandmother, our protagonist, Hisako, dreams of experiencing this mysterious and energetic lifestyle for herself; wearing her grandmother’s old school uniform Hisako ventures into the zombie infested Tokyo in order to reclaim the city and go to school.
As part of this adventure for a modern-day high school life, Hisako travels across Tokyo using the subway system with each mission being located at a familiar location in Tokyo. Players will travel through and explore locations such as Shinjuku, Asakusa, Akihabara and Roppongi as they attempt to defeat the zombie infestation overthrowing the city. To aid Hisako’s quest, players will also be able to upgrade Hisako’s weapons and skill sets as well as unlock entirely new weapons that will make sure the dead stay dead.
Dead or School will release for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on March 12, 2020 in North America and Europe. The game is currently available for PC via Steam.
