Upcoming survival horror/adventure game Corpse Party: Blood Drive gets more details following the release date announcement yesterday.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive takes place two months after the tragedy from the events of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, where Ayumi finds herself severely ill from the effects of black magic. Ayumi was saved by Naomi Nakashima, who was able to get her to the hospital in order to save her life.

While hospitalized, a certain girl visits Ayumi, who claims to be a spiritual associate of her sister, Hinoe. This girl then tells Ayumi that Hinoe wants her to retrieve the dark tome, the “Book of Shadows”. After getting released from the hospital, a mysterious young man tells her that she can use that Book of Shadows to bring her dead friends back to life spurring an adventure to the housing complex where her relative Makina Shinozaki once lived.

Check out some screenshots and a set of character images below;

Corpse Party: Blood Drive is set to release on July 24th in Japan, with no word yet on localization.

    This game would be so good if the characters do not look like retarded anime characters.

      Then you’ll have a problem with most Japanese games.

          So… why don’t you stop looking at the Japanese games? Problem solved!

            Because I like to complain.

            That’s my favorite hobby on the Internet too! lol

  • I loved the original game on PSP. I still need to play the sequel but am very excited about this. I hope it comes to the West.

    Man, the first Corpse Party was creepy. A feat, considering the top-down 16-bit graphics, all owed to incredible sound design. I hope this makes it stateside.
