Enterbrain's Famitsu website posted a new promotional video for the August 2 release of the PSP game Corpse Party -The Anthology- Sachiko no Renai Yūgi ♥ Hysteric Birthday 2U. The school romance spinoff is based on the original Corpse Party game from Team GrisGris. The original game followed a group of high school students trapped in an elementary school, which is haunted by children who disappeared.
The new game will introduce five new characters, including two second-year students from St. Kurusu Girls' Academy. Ran Kobayashi will be voiced by Sumire Uesaka (Sora from Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!), and Azusa Takai will be voiced by Yukana (C.C from Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion). The game will also have four songs, including an opening theme by Asami Imai.
The spinoff features stories written by several guest writers such as Dragon Crisis! creator Kaya Kizaki and Koihime Musou anime scriptwriter Go Zappa. The game is set on the birthday of Sachiko, one of the schoolchildren who cursed the elementary school.
The limited edition of the game includes the Corpse Party Missing Footage video anime. The limited edition will retail for 7,140 yen (abbout US$89), while the regular edition will cost 5,040 yen (US$63).
XSEED Games released the PSP version of the original Corpse Party game in North America and Europe.
