Japanese gaming magazine, Famitsu, has recently announced that Corpse Party: Blood Drive is officially a game to look forward to. The sequel to Corpse Party: Book of Shadows‘ eighth chapter which acted as a sequel to the first Corpse Party, will be releasing in Japan later this year on the PlayStation Vita. This third entry in the Heavenly Host Elementary School saga is said to be the finale. The story synopsis suggests Naomi and Ayumi’s efforts to save their friends from Heavenly Host will continue. Awesome.
After a fan of RoH convinced me to check out the first Corpse Party, I’ve become hooked on the series. Not too long ago I reviewed Book of Shadows for the PSP. Today’s news that the sequel has been officially confirmed and that it’s a Vita title, as opposed to a PSP one, is just the icing on the cake. Gory anime drawings will have never looked so pretty!
Now, my only hope is that XSEED works on translating this game simultaneously to its development so we won’t have to wait a year for it to be localised.
