Although I've yet to buy or play Corpse Party: Book of Shadows ...

... I can't help but find myself attracted to the recently announced Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient.

In part, that's because Dead Patient seemingly will return the series to the gameplay found in the eponymous PSP release. Also, as far as I'm aware, this sequel will be the first to be made by Team GrisGris (now known as Grindhouse), the folks responsible for the first Corpse Party.

Here are a pair of teaser trailers for Dead Patient, in case any of you are similarly curious about it:

Word on the street is that Dead Patient will receive at least a PC release, although some suggest it'll be ported to the Vita as well.

Personally, I'd love for it to come to the 3DS, too, but I have a feeling that's about as likely as Sega's wackadoodle golf-meets-pinball title, @field, making a similar platform leap at this point.

Always nice to see my influence make its way onto your blog ;) I'm definitely very excited for this one, too... Book of Shadows is fine, but I was surprised at how I missed the gameplay of the first one. I think it really sets Corpse Party apart from other games! said...

Ah! I completely forgot to give you credit for turning me on to this, Anne. Sorry about that.

Also, yes, I'm glad this one is returning to the gameplay of the first. Not that I've finished the first, mind you, but I enjoyed what I've played of it so far.

Have you spent quite a bit of time with Book of Shadows so far, BTW?

I was a big fan of the other two Corpse Party games - I am looking forward to this one as well. :) said...

Ah, so you've played Book of Shadows? Would you recommend it to someone who liked what he played of the first, even though it's not the same style of gameplay?
