Corpse Party remake announced for Nintendo Switch

In Glorious Fulcimation

Notoriously gory anime franchise Corpse Party is headed to the Nintendo Switch in the form of a new remake, Corpse Party Blood Covered… Repeated Fear, which will bring its head-caving, eye-gouging misery to the Nintendo platform later in the near future.

As a quick refresher for those less inclined, Corpse Party is a multimedia franchise that began way back in 1996, before finding its feet in handheld gaming a decade later. The Corpse Party titles tell ghoulish tales of hapless schoolgirls who venture into haunted scenarios, before fast becoming utterly destroyed in extraordinarily grim fashion. Yucky stuff.

Corpse Party Blood Covered:… Repeated Fear will be a remastered edition of 2015 Nintendo 3DS release, which itself is a remake of the original Corpse Party. The new Switch edition will feature all of the content of the nightmarish classic, built within an optimized engine and featuring newly recorded voice acting for previously silent sequences. Due for release this winter in Japan, no western localization has been announced as of yet.
