Posted on April 11, 2016 by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS, News
The 3DS version of the infamous horror game Corpse Party, which was released last year in Japan under the title “Corpse Party: Blood Covered …Repeated Fear”, has been rated by the ESRB. Simply titled “Corpse Party”, the game has received a “Mature” rating. XSEED is listed as the publisher.
This does not 100% confirm a North American release of the game, but it does make it pretty likely. Hopefully XSEED will make it official sometime soon.
By the way, below is the rating summary, in case you were wondering what kind of game Corpse Party is:
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.
