The visual novel format may not be for everyone, but the genre has certainly found a home on the PlayStation Portable. The latest visual novel is called Corpse Party: Book of Shadows (the sequel to last year’s horror adventure, Corpse Party) and it’ll be out on Tuesday, January 15th for the PSP. The download-only title costs $19.99 and it’s also compatible with the PlayStation Vita.
Book of Shadows is divided into multiple chapters, each focusing on different characters who are terrorized by ghosts. As in the first Corpse Party, this sequel is a point-and-click adventure, but unlike its prequel, Book of Shadows is played from a first-person perspective. In terms of story, you can expect gruesome deaths, a lot of blood and some scared teenagers.
