XSEED Games has announced that it will be released Funeral party (2021), a remake of Funeral party, to the west on October 20th. The game costs $ 19.99 with a 10 percent discount on launch week and will be available digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
An official overview is as follows:
The haunted halls of the Heavenly Host Elementary School are waiting for their next victim! Based on the cult classic that started the series in 1996, Corpse Party (2021) has been updated for the next generation of horror fans while retaining its 16-bit charm. In addition to the five main story chapters, each with multiple gruesome endings, the title includes 16 “Extra Chapters” that expand the series’ story, characters, and relationships, including two brand new episodes that introduce new characters with fascinating roles. For the first time in the West, the ‘Extra Chapters’ included in this release are also set to music entirely in Japanese.
The most important functions include:
- Atmospheric graphics in retro style – 16-bit style graphics based on the designs of the original indie game, coupled with gruesome descriptions and a heartbreaking sound design, will inspire players’ imaginations with visions of horror
- Adventure-style gameplay where every choice counts – As a cross between a point-and-click adventure and a non-combat role-playing game, Funeral party allows players to explore every corner of Heavenly Host Elementary and make choices that will significantly change the course of history and the fate of their characters
- Add new extra chapters for “fun” – Two original extra chapters expand the relationship between series favorites Ayumi and Yoshiki and introduce Miku Shirayume and Ryoka Iwami, two brand new characters with their own fascinating roles to be played in the gruesome legend of Heavenly Host Elementary
- Innovative sound design – Listen to the fully voiced Japanese audio and enjoy a new level of immersion thanks to binaural 3D recording techniques that create a simulated surround sound experience for headphone users for a different dimension of horror
