Corpse Party: Blood Drive coming soon to Switch and PC

Corpse Party games are heavy on the corpses, light on the parties. Never got to experience one of these horror stories for yourself? You'll soon have the chance to (cue maniacal laughter). Corpse Party: Blood Drive is coming to PC and Nintendo Switch on Oct. 10, and is clearly intended for players with nerves of steel and penchants for blood-soaked anime characters. 

The game was originally released in 2014 for the PlayStation Vita, but the brand new Blood Drive is a full HD remaster that's been optimized for the power of PC and Nintendo Switch, which means you'll get to see the gore in all its glorious detail and hear the screams of the dead in surround sound. Oh goody. Corpse Party games are filled with the kind of gore one would expect from a classic, Japanese horror film, creating the kind of disturbing experiences that helped popularize the games and shock players who were lulled into a false sense of security by the seemingly innocent, chibi schoolchildren.

No one is safe within the hellish halls of the Heavenly Host elementary school. No one.

Corpse Party games were a mainstay of the PlayStation Portable in its heyday, making use of 16-bit graphics that managed to be just the right amount of spooky. The survival horror games tell a linear story, but if you're thinking about picking up the modernized Corpse Party: Blood Drive, don't worry. While it is a direct sequel to Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, the third game in the series, it's A-okay if you haven't played the previous games. Blood Drive will clue you in on the dark history of Kisaragi Academy's class 2-9, but a full play-through of previous titles will give you, pardon the phrase, all the gory details.

We'll have more for you on Corpse Party: Blood Drive should other news break closer to the game's launch.
