Rejoice, fans of horrific games and disturbing scenes: more Corpse Party is on the way to your PSPs and PS Vitas soon. And by "soon", I mean "next week", as XSEED's terrifying sequel, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows debuts on the PlayStation Network store for the low low price of $20 (that's pretty low compared to Earth Defense Force 2025, which opened the other day at $39.99).
Book of Shadows isn't so much a direct sequel to the original as a companion game, with side stories that explore everything from characters' backgrounds to events happening off-screen in Corpse Party to some alternate "What-If?" scenarios.
Perhaps one of those scenarios is "What if Corpse Party was just "Party", a game about a group of happy-go-lucky school friends getting into hilarious misadventures?
