Corpse Party: Book of Shadows Hits PSP and PS Vita Next Week, Has Full Japanese Voice Acting

It looks as though the PSP version of Corpse Party that came to North America and Europe in late 2011 did quite well as XSEED has announced that Corpse Party: Book of Shadows will come to the NA PSN on January 15th, with a European release ‘shortly after’. Selling for $19.99, it will be both PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita compatible.

No Vita trophy support I take it. Still looks like it will be fun to play.

It's a PSP game that is PS Vita compatible, so yeah, no trophies unfortunately.

I know it kinda sucks its not a straight up vita game but for this kind of game its okay I LOVED IT! I bought the original in a sale and it just sucked me in and now there is a more definitive version that can use my old save file?! And has a new type of gameplay and mechanics?! Yo do yourself a favor and invest in this game the voice acting is top notch!

Anytime they include the original voice acting they'll have my money.

Japanese voice options are great... as long as there are English subs.

It's an incredible game but get the original Corpse Party first.

Not a vita version? F*** I am getting so mad! Also games like Ragnarok oddysey still need to release in EUROPE. Europe is a big market but the japanese and american gamers get so much more love/.

Western consumers utilizing the original Japanese vocals has got to be a small number of people. Please tell me I'm wrong otherwise, but the type of consumer who appreciates that has got to be fair niche

Maybe you should inform us where you are getting your data to make such a statement?

Dual Audio tracks actually make or break a purchase for me. Catherine is a good example. Its a great game, but I refuse to buy it new because they didn't include the Japanese audio for it. Simple as that.

I'm sure there are people like you, it's a very generalized statement without concrete data. The best I can offer you is that generally speaking, people enjoy understanding what they're listening to. Hard core anime types have got to be in the minority.

Never heard of this game, so I'd need a demo before I plop down $20.

I didn´t know there was a follow-up to Corpse Party: Blood Covered, but bring em´on the more games for the Vita the better.
