Reviving this thread to announce the sequel!

Apparently the sequel to Corpse Party, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is coming to US and Europe this winter

By what I read in the article the sequel is more like a visual novel. I think this may be for the best because something I didn't like much in the original were those chase sequences.
Funny this is announced just the week when I decided to go back to the game. At least I'll have time to finish the first one (If Zero Escape doesn't take all my time).

Split, new game so I think it's more appropriate to have its own thread.

The other could stand to be bumped over the sale news though.

Yeah, amazing news. I thought this would get skipped in favor of 2. Glad I avoided spoilers.

Ahhhh! I still didn't get to the first!! I suppose now is a good time for me to do that considering it is going on sale tomarrow.... I almost just impulse bought it before reading about the sale... close call indeed....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

This IS exciting, the first one frustrated me a bit also with the chase sequences as well as the ability to make some wrong choices and screw up the game but overall I really enjoyed the game a lot!

I feel the same way. I didn't have much problems with the questions but the chase sequences were too annoying. Probably the reason why I gave the game a long rest.
Being the sequel a visual novel at least we get rid of the running away.

Weird; I didn't find the chase sequences to be that bad honestly. The only one I ever considered problematic/bad design was in

Code: [Select]
Chapter 2; where right after you find Shinozaki near the entrance you have to dodge a 1x sized ghost kid in a narrow 3x3 area
when he can turn on a freaking dime. Not to mention they give you all of half a second's warning; literally.

Hmm. Not sure what to think of this. I just recently played the first one and gave up in the last chapter. The game is just so vague about where to go and what to do. I apparently played it wrong, and couldn't progress properly. That sucked. Plus, the actual gameplay was pretty bad.
The story itself was fascinating, so a pure visual novel would be perfect.
Is the new one for the PSP or the Vita?

It's been a while since I played it but I think I might potentially know your problem.

Code: [Select]
In Chapter 5 you have to combine the lesson you learned in Chapter 1 and ignoring the advice the game
has given you up til that point. Basically; collect all the notes and backtrack/search super carefully to gather all of
them before a certain event triggers. I think you need them all before the two halves of the party have their
conversation across the massive chasm on the second floor.

I didn't see a front page news story so I thought I'd share my discovery the other day. Apparently BoS has been on the PSN for roughly half a month now.
