Corpse Party 2 game to get a reboot with added story and new graphics!
GrindHouse announced on Wednesday that Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient’s first episode will get a reboot for the PC titled Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient Neues. The game’s first episode will arrive in July, and fans who already own the original game will be able to get the new version for free. The reboot will include additions to the story, new images and will be running on the new “KENIX Engine NEUES” engine.
GrindHouse released Corpse Party 2: Dead Patient in 2013 as a sequel to the original Team GrisGris’ Corpse Party games. The game was planned to be released episodically with the story shown in game episodes over time. Unfortunately, GrindHouse has only released the first episode. In addition, the game received an inspired drama CD.
What are the games about?
The game’s story revolves around Ayame Ito, a first year high school student. She wakes up from a coma and finds herself in hospital she doesn’t know. Ayame realizes that she’s lost her memories and then explores the hospital. She finds papers and plants littered about the floors, but she finds out that there is no one else. Then, Ayame then decides to find a way out of the hospital.
Furthermore, the original game from Team GrisGris revolved around a group of high school students. The students are trapped in Heavenly Host Elementary. However, this school is haunted by children who have disappeared.
