Developer XSEED Games has released more details concerning the 3DS and Windows version of Corpse Party, and the Windows version gets a release date.
XSEED Games released new information Thursday on two new versions of the acclaimed horror adventure Corpse Party.
The PC version of the game will release via Steam, GOG.com and the Humble Store for $14.99 on April 25, and the 3DS version -- a remaster of the PSP version of the game -- will be released digitally for $29.99. There will also be a limited edition physical release on 3DS for $49.99. They're all slated for this summer.
This makes three platforms that the first Corpse Party title will be available on in English. Each of the three iterations of the game has something new to offer. According to XSEED Games, the PSP version of the game is the more accessible version:
"If you want to easily play Corpse Party on your living room TV, or you own a Vita or PSTV and want the entire Heavenly Host trilogy (Corpse Party, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Corpse Party: Blood Drive) in one place, the PSP version is for you!"
The PC version has an entirely different voice track (still in Japanese) and 4 extra chapters, with one being the "Tooth" chapter from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows for PSP and iOS.
The 3DS version has 14 extra chapters, four of which are exclusive to the 3DS. These new chapters help serve to fill in story gaps and develop some side characters who haven't gotten a lot of focus. The 3DS version also has higher resolution character sprites than the PSP version of the game, as well as some new music tracks. The physical 3DS version will be receiving a "Back to School" limited edition, which includes character figurines for Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara and a soundtrack CD containing 80 minutes' worth of music from the PSP and 3DS versions of Corpse Party that didn't make the cut for the Songs of the Dead soundtrack release.
