Xseed Not Pursuing Over My Dead Body For PSP; “Plate Completely Full”


Xseed’s name tends to come up when readers discuss Over My Dead Body (known as Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke in Japan) for the PSP. By virtue of it being a game that almost no one has heard of, intrigued fans putting their hope in Xseed localizing it isn’t too surprising, given their strong PSP support in recent years.


Unfortunately, Xseed are not pursuing Over My Dead Body, Executive Vice President, Ken Berry, revealed to Siliconera in an e-mail.


“Tom [Lipschultz] was pushing for ‘Ore no Shikabane’ a while ago, but I don’t think we will be pursuing that title anytime soon,” Berry shared with us. “We have our plate completely full right now with quite a few unannounced titles.”


Xseed’s next upcoming release is Corpse Party: Book of Shadows as a download title for PSP. That game is slated for release this winter.


[Slight correction: Ken Berry is now Xseed’s Executive Vice President.]
