    After a long wait, the release date of the sequel to Corpse Party, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows has been announced by XSEED. It will reach U.S players January 15th via PlayStation Store, priced at $19,99. This is of course exciting news for all the fans of the creepy horror series. Are you ready to re-enter Sachiko's sick game? Will you prevail and survive the nightmare? That's highly unlikely on the first try, but that's what these games are all about - replayability. Be advised - the trailers may be considered disturbing - you have been forewarned.

    A Corpse Party game, really? Wow.....

    $20 says it'll be censored to some degree for the USA release....
    Here's a forum friendly reason why that still gets the point across

    My feelings exactly. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and was really disappointed to find out that the sequel was not released in the west yet. I really, really can't wait for this release - I couldn't be bothered to try out the Japanese one. I hope the "censoring" won't make the game bland - I WANT the juicy parts.

    I haven't tried the first one yet.. Is that one censored? (why would you assume that this second one will be if it wasn't).

    Always wanted to try this :)

    It's quite... graphic. I can recommend it if you like "that kind" of horror - it's a very enjoyable game and definitely not censored in a way that would detach you from the game, so no worries there.

    But it IS in fact censored?
    I have no problem with graphic stuff, and I guess I like "that kind" of horror ;) But however I do have a strong disliking towards censoring. The acceptable limit for me is like the siren sprite change in FF VI.. more than that and I'm pissed haha.

    I wouldn't know since I never played its Japanese release. I 100%'ted the game and if it is censored then it's censored mildly.

    Anyone want the sequel to be released on Vita once they get around to it?
    Instant buy for me.

    No I mean Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient being released for Spring this year. I think the Vita deserves its own Corpse Party title.

    I believe Dead Patient is going to be a PC Exclusive, the PSP's/Vita's next Corpse Party is titled Blood Drive - it's mentioned at the end of Book of Shadow's credits.
