Corpse Party for 3DS Rated by ESRB

Category: Uncategorized

After successfully bringing Corpse Party to the PSP and iOS, it is looking like XSEED Games may bring the 2D horror adventure to the 3DS.

The game recently received a Mature rating by the ESRB, along with the following rating summary:

“This is a survival-horror adventure game, in which players help high-school students escape from a haunted elementary school. From an over-head perspective, players explore the school and interact with various objects and characters. Some interactions can lead to sequences that depict acts of violence: a character repeatedly stabbed with a pair of scissors; a character stabbed with a knife. Violence is also described in the text (e.g., “The third victim was stabbed in the left eye an indeterminate number of times”; “Buckets of blood spilled out from my head. I’m sure it was hell to clean up later…”). Blood is frequently depicted near corpses and when characters are injured. The game includes some suggestive references in the dialogue (e.g., “Big t*ts does it for you, eh”; “If you don’t, I’ll email you a beautiful crotch shot—so watch out; “He grabbed me and forced me down, then began unbuttoning my blouse…”). In one scene, bathing characters are depicted with soap bubbles covering their chests and genitals. The words “f**k” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.”

As with all ESRB ratings, this is not a guarantee that Corpse Party is going to come out in the West. However, it could be seen as an indicator that XSEED does have some interest in the series.

The 3DS version of Corpse Party originally released last July in Japan as Corpse Party Blood covered: …Repeated fear. It was an enhanced port of the PSP and iOS versions, featuring new scenes, bonus content, updated sprites and a remixed soundtrack.
