As people may have heard from my podcast Otaku Nation UK me and, Harriet and Alex had mixed opinions on the anime. The anime grossed out most people but I thought it was an exemplary for a shirt 13 series where the audeince is gripped and given a satisfactory ending. Nothing felt rushed in this anime where school kids open a dimensional portal in their schools past where they are sucked into torture and murder. The 13 episodes explained the schools grotesque past and characters given and spirits to the interesting connections. I didn’t think twice to try out the remastered version on the game on PSP. It had the charm of old classic 2D RPG’s but great story.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive is the final instalment of the Horror Adventure story that began with Corpse Party on PSP I played in 2010, followed by Corpse Party: Book of Shadows in 2013. Corpse Party: Blood Drive allows players to control both individuals and groups of characters as they explore the Heavenly Host Elementary school as well as other notable locations. The game features a top-down 3D perspective and tasks players with dodging, disarming, running, solving and interacting with the larger world in order to advance the plot and discover what lies at the core of the events happening at Heavenly Host Elementary.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive features a thrilling narrative and deep characters that the player must work with in order to survive the many trials and tribulations of Heavenly Host Elementary. Story points throughout the game are presented in graphic visual novel-style cutscenes, and the game features many endings based upon the tasks completed throughout the campaign.

“To be able to work with the developers of Corpse Party: Blood Drive and deliver something unique to the European market, while simultaneously expanding our portfolio is something that we are incredibly grateful for” commented Michael Fisher, Community Manager at Marvelous Europe. “We hope that people will find much to love in Corpse Party: Blood Drive whether it be the deep, rich narrative experience or nerve-racking gameplay that they face as they explore its dark world.”

Experience the world of Corpse Party in full 3D for the first time ever. All environments from the previous series entries have been meticulously re-created for this brand new instalment, and can be fully explored with an in-game flashlight precariously lighting the way.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive features far more ways for characters to fight back against the darkness inside Heavenly Host – Sprint in short bursts, disarm traps, hide and more in order to thwart your pursuers from reaching their goal.

3D binaural audio for simulated surround sound and screen-altering visual effects make their return for Corpse Party: Blood Drive, along with a whole host of extra unlockables such as Voice Actor Interviews, Art Stills, Music Tracks and more!

With 11 huge story chapters and 8 supplemental “Extra Chapters” there is plenty to explore in Corpse Party: Blood Drive, its story providing shocking twists and unbelievable turns as you unravel the mystery at the heart of it all.

Marvelous Europe also announced that they will be bringing Corpse Party: Blood Drive to their booth at Gamescom 2015, where you can have a hands on experience with the title contact, Sam at Decibel for an appointment.
