Authentic horror games can be almost as good as horror movies when it comes to scaring people; however, certain horror games went astray from the horror element and adopted the action-adventure style. The Resident Evil series comes to mind as it started off with a horror theme but eventually ended up as an action game with a bunch of zombies trickled in. True horror game fans understand what a real horror game plays like, and those who follow will know what kind of horror awaits in the Corpse Party series. Gamers who’ve never played Corpse Party are in for a treat because Corpse Party: Blood Drive is coming to both Nintendo Switch and PC.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive was first released on Sony PlayStation Vita in 2014, but the game was ported to Android and iOS platforms in 2017. Now, XSEED Games has announced that the game will be heading to PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch with a full HD makeover. The game will include full Japanese voice-overs, improved framerate, and binaural 3D audio along with other minor improvements. Best of all, the game will feature an entirely new lighting system that will allow players to experience real horror when exploring different areas with a flashlight.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive is not a standalone game, it’s the direct sequel to Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, but playing the previous games is not required at all. However, those who want to understand the complete story may want to check out both Corpse Party: Book of Shadows and Corpse Party: Blood Covered before jumping into the upcoming game. The games follow the story of a group of students from the Kisaragi Academy who’ve been trapped in an alternate dimension where everything is haunted, and a chilling death awaits at every corner. The gameplay is similar to other RPG horror games, but Corpse Party games are famous for introducing established horror conventions in safe, cute chibi-graphics. The Corpse Party series is also well-known for unexpected twists and turns that make the games exciting.
Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient is a direct sequel to Blood Drive and all the previous games in the Heavenly Host Arc. Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient was released in 2017 in Japan; however, the North American version is still in the works, and it’s expected to launch in the Winter of 2019. So, those who pick up Corpse Party: Blood Drive won’t have to wait longer to play its sequel.
Corpse Party: Blood Drive launches on October 10 for Nintendo Switch and PC.
