Let’s Get This Corpse Party Started!

Tom Lipschultz's Avatar + Posted by Tom Lipschultz on Nov 22, 2011 // Localization Specialist, XSEED

Halloween may be over, but if you’ve ever wondered what Thanksgiving might be like from the turkey’s point of view, Corpse Party’s totally got your back!

Releasing for the PSP later today as a PlayStation Store exclusive download (at a mere $19.99), Corpse Party immerses you within the creepy confines of a dangerously haunted, completely inescapable school building as you struggle in vain to rescue your friends from the clammy grasp of death and find a way back home before suffering a complete descent into insanity (or worse!).

So after you’ve feasted upon the supple flesh of the holiday bird this week, let the tryptophan lull you into a false sense of comfort, dim the lights and get ready to have some serious nightmares. This party’s just getting started – and it ain’t messin’ around!

Corpse Party for PS3Corpse Party for PS3

For more information on Corpse Party’s gameplay, please direct your attention to this previous PlayStation.Blog entry; or, if you’d prefer to learn a bit more about what makes it such a frightening experience, direct your attention here instead. There’s also an official website for the game, wherein you can learn specific details about its story, characters and history as an independently-developed Japanese PC title.

You think you’re thankful this Thursday? Wait till you play Corpse Party! It may give you a whole new appreciation of what it means to be alive…

Oh man you do not know how excited I am for this. I also scare and get grossed out easily, but I am so picking this up! Thanks for bringing it to NA :)!

Tom you have no idea how much I want this game. I have been anticipating it for months. XSEED is just like Atlus, you guys always localize the best and most obscure games. Ugh, the store better update early, I NEED Corpse Party!

I’m glad to see that it didn’t end up costing a lot. Normally I enjoy having a physical manual and art book to look at as well as soundtracks (thanks a ton for all the limited editions you’ve made of games!), but ultimately if it can make the game cost less considerably less for the buyer and we get it sooner then I’m all for the digital distribution. Any word on a PSN+ discount? I know it’s not an expensive game, but after all the great releases this Fall my wallet is a little thin…

Thanks again Xseed, if it weren’t for guys like you we’d miss out on so many great gems like this one!

    No PSN+ discount is planned at the moment, I’m afraid. It’s something to keep in mind for future titles, but for this game, I don’t think we could’ve afforded to offer it for any lower a price. ;)

i will buy & download as soon as the store is updated! :)
anyways, i just hope that this title does really well for you guys because this could/would open the floodgates of the visual novel genre on sony platforms? go go go xseed!

    Well, to be fair, it’s not really a visual novel… but it is in the same spirit as visual novels, so it certainly couldn’t hurt. ;)

I am very much looking forward to this, sadly though I have to wait till i get a vita to play it. I wish PSP’s support multiple profiles =(

    + Tom Lipschultz on November 22nd, 2011 at 10:24 am said:

    They sort of do, but not at the same time. You can reregister your PSP to a different PSN profile as many times as you want, as far as I’m aware — but upon doing so, all the games you purchased under the old profile will become unplayable unless and until you switch back.

    Not quite as easy to work with as the PS3 in that regard, but it’s still workable if you wanted to play Corpse Party before getting your Vita.

I really want to buy this game and hope it will be under 650Mb that’s about how much i have left in my memory card if not it will have to wait later because i don’t want to spend another 30$ just to be able to buy this game.

    + Tom Lipschultz on November 22nd, 2011 at 10:11 am said:

    We won’t know its size for sure until it’s up on PSN, but it will indeed most likely be under 650 MB in size, so I think you’ll be safe.

    Even if it went above that, though, I think your pricing is a bit off. A 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo only costs about $5 these days!

Can’t wait for this to come out today. I love XSeed for bring this game and Grand Knights History overseas, my PSP is still not dead yet. Thanks XSeed.

Now if XSeed would be able to bring Danganronpa and 7th Dragon 2020 to the states, I would be even happier :)

    + Tom Lipschultz on November 22nd, 2011 at 10:17 am said:

    I would be happy as well, if I had a chance to work on those two games! I’ve dabbled in Danganronpa and really enjoyed it, and I’m looking forward to picking up a copy of 7th Dragon 2020 soon (and will definitely be buying its soundtrack, since Yuzo Koshiro + Hatsune Miku = pure win!).

    Whether or not we actually have the opportunity to work on those two titles, however, is a different story. We’ll definitely look into them, but sadly, not every interesting-looking title is meant to be.

    I’m still amazed that we were able to get Corpse Party, though, so you never know what the future may hold!

Thank you, XSeed, for bringing games like this to the US. I really hope it meets (or eXceeds) your sales projections.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Bah! why hasn’t the PS store updated yet? I’m so ready to play this game! the previews and trailer really reminds me of one of my favorite anime series, Higurashi no naku koro ni. I love that you guys are releasing games like this overseas, one of the reasons why X-Seed is one of my favorite publishers in the US. Keep up the crucial work, and I hope to see Trails in the Sky SC soon as well, absolutely loved the first game.

Thanks for this Xseed, i’m buying this as soon as i can! I always get and Higurashi feeling when i watch those trailers.
A question here, could you guys translate any 5pb’s visual novels? Like Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head or Dunamis15?
And please, what’s the name of the opening? I believe the singer is Asami Imai, right?

I wanted to play this badly but my PSP just died after many years of joy. I don’t want to buy another so close to the Vita launch, so I was wondering if this game will be compatible with it?

@Tom Lipschultz
I meant 4GB cards since i never buy 1 GB card and 4GB card cosr around 30$ here.
Anyway the game is only a bit over 550MB so i’m fine and thanks for this game i played a bit and it’s nice hopefully this game will be able to entertain me until the patch for Skyrim is released.

@VemberJudgement
http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=2254
here they say they are compatible but i heard somewhere else that it won’t be disponible right at launch the patch will be released 2-3 months after release.
I’m not 100% sure of that though and i might be confused with something else.

Thank you so much for bringing this out. I’ve been waiting for it since I came across someone talking about it on a horror gaming site the other year. Then my lovely wife came and woke me up while searching for some games to tell me about this game she found. I was surprised to see it was the same one I’d been reading about. I got it the moment it was released last night and am already on chapter 4, need to find more of those bad endings and tags. This game deserves trophies that is for sure. So much to collect, so much to do. As a horror writer this is just what I needed to get my mind out of this rut that I’m in. Too bad I’ll probably never see Higurashi come to this side of the world *sighs*

All in all great work so far. I’m loving the atmosphere of this game. God that ghost in the washroom actually made me jump and very little surprises me now a days. Definitely a worth while game to add to my collection, it will sit with my Fatal Frames and Rule of Rose for sure. *grins*

Thanks again for the great work.
