From their facebook page:
XSEED Games to Publish Corpse Party for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system this Fall
 
New Horror Action Title to Deliver a Frightfully Unique Adventure Filled with Suspense, Supernatural Terrors and Fear
 
Torrance, Calif., (September 1, 2011) – XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, today announced it has picked up the North American rights to publish Corpse Party, a unique twist on horror action, for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.  A cult favorite in its native Japan when it was released, Corpse Party promises to deliver a tense and bone-chilling experience for all who dare step foot into situations they may not be prepared to survive.
 
Corpse Party is an adventure game that uses hand-drawn 2D sprite and tile art to tell the story of a group of Kisaragi Academy High School students who are trapped in a haunted elementary school filled with the decaying corpses and tormented souls of countless children who’d mysteriously vanished from the Japanese countryside years, months or sometimes only days prior. Desperately trying to escape and survive, players will experience unnatural, unnerving and decidedly uncensored horrors through the eyes – and ears -- of these frightened teenaged victims. Detailed 2D sprite animations and art stills show the bloody and unsettling fates that await those who enter, and full Japanese-language voice-acting combines with 3D audio support to create a simulated surround sound experience when playing with headphones, offering players a delightfully uncomfortable level of immersion.
 
“This is a game we believe will instantly captivate fans of action, suspense and horror and leave a one of a kind impact,” said Jun Iwasaki, President of XSEED Games. “Through its unique visual style, unpredictable storytelling and impressive audio cues, Corpse Party will test players’ mental strength and mesmerize them through its well-crafted mystery and intricate character-driven narrative, all while delivering a truly frightening experience that’s sure to keep everyone on the edges of their seats.”
 
Corpse Party features highly-detailed 2D graphics with a 16-bit flair, giving it a uniquely distinctive look and feel and leaving just enough up to the player’s imagination to enhance the impact of its already deeply disturbing plotline. With the aid of headphones, players will hear characters speak to them from the corner of the room, directly into their ears or even from inside their own heads to create a chilling 3D audio experience. Through various actions, decisions and sometimes even knee-jerk reflexes, the outcome of the story will change. There are no Game Over screens here: only dozens of brutally detailed, agonizing and heart-wrenching scenarios branching off of the one true path that might lead to the player’s eventual salvation.
 
Corpse Party was originally developed as an independent title by Team GrisGris, and was adapted for the PSP system by 5pb. It will be published in North America by XSEED Games this fall exclusively as a download through the PlayStation®Store. The game has not yet been rated by the ESRB (pending M for Mature).

Sounds sort of like a clock-tower type game

Reminds me of "Sweet Home", an excellent survival horror JRPG on the NES of all things.

I'm a big wuss, but this sounds cool.

This could be fun! I like how it seems to blend a traditionnal 16-bit RPG style with graphic novel conventions.

Now I wonder if this will be a full-fledged PSP release or a PSN game?

This interests me.

I guess the distribution method might be affected by how well the UMD copies of Trails in the Sky sold.

I actually like the way this looks...very interesting. Haven't played a good horror game since playing Fatal Frame series.

Looks cute but I'm not interested in horror games anymore.

Kinda curious. Horror is hard to do well, especially with "cuter" graphics. I am curious to see if they can pull it off. :)

Think  Higurashi only more gory and far more creepy. You really do NOT want to die in that house.

So I didn't put much attention before but this game has 3D audio, now I'm interested. I'm also watching the playthough of RedSunGamer channel on YouTube and is not scary or anything at the moment really but the heavy emphasis on the dialog and the voice acting is quite impressive to be honest.

I don't have a PSP though, so I guess I'll have to wait until I have the Vita to buy this from PSN.

Think for a minute that someone actually got paid to localize this.

ADMIN EDIT: Please don't inline pictures that big. Especially when they may qualify as a (minor) spoiler.

XSEED says you can blame Tom for that one.

I do want this game though. It sounds... uh...entertaining.

And he says to blame the original Japanese script on that. Apparently that part's a faithful localization rather than WD-esque hijinks.

Right, I forgot that Tom worked on this he was pretty excited about localizing Corpse Party, and well, he did a good job. I will not be able to play this anytime soon though. :(

Great game, extremely immersive, and among the scariest games I've ever played, but it had the most depressing, soul-crushing ending imaginable.
