Bummed you never got your Corpse Party invite? The game launched in Japan and stayed in the Land of the Rising Sun for quite a while, but is finally coming to PC on April 25 for only $14.99. If physical media is more your bag (get it? Because bags are physical, and you use them to carry your new games?), XSEED Games has announced that you'll be able to pick up an exclusive Back to School edition of the game for 3DS this fall.
Priced at $49.99, Corpse Party: Back to School Edition will bundle the game alongside "high-quality miniature figurines of characters Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara, as well as a soundtrack CD containing nearly 80 minutes of music from the game not previously featured on the ‘Songs of the Dead’ compilation, including three tracks exclusive to this Nintendo 3DS version," per a press release from XSEED.
Corpse Party is a visual novel-style horror adventure game originally developed for PSP by Team GrisGris. The PC version will be available from Steam, GOG.com, and Humble Bundle, and marks the game's first localization. Picking up the PC version will net you frills like an exclusive retelling of "Tooth," a chapter from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, and multiple endings different from those found in the PSP and forthcoming 3DS versions.

Interesting. I've only heard good things about Corpse Party. But it's the kind of property where there's so many remakes, sequels, prequels, etc that I've never taken the time to figure it out. A Steam version of the original (?) seems appealing.
