Corpse Party 2021 Key Features
Atmospheric Retro-Style Graphics: 16-bit-style visuals based on the original indie game’s designs paired with gruesome descriptions and heart-pounding sound design will have players’ imaginations running wild with visions of horror.
Adventure-Style Gameplay Where Every Choice Counts: As a cross between a point-and-click adventure game and a battleless RPG, Corpse Party lets players explore every corner of Heavenly Host Elementary and make choices that significantly change the course of the story and its characters’ fates.
New Extra Chapters Add to the “Fun”: 2 original Extra Chapters expand on the relationship between series favorites Ayumi and Yoshiki, as well as introducing Miku Shirayume and Ryoka Iwami, 2 brand new characters with their own intriguing roles to play in the grisly legend of Heavenly Host Elementary.
Innovative Sound Design: Listen to the fully voiced Japanese audio and enjoy another level of immersion thanks to binaural 2D recording techniques that create a simulated surround sound experience for headphone users for another dimension in horror.
The PS4™, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch releases of the game have been rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB; the PC release has not been rated.
