The next entry in the Corpse Party series, subtitled Blood Drive, is coming to Vita in Japan on July 24.

Taking place a few months after Book of Shadows, Blood Drive follows Ayumi from the previous game as she attempts to retrieve the Book of Shadows again in order to revive her deceased friends.

As you can see in the screenshot above, this is the first Corpse Party to move away from the pixelated 2D art style of the former games and embrace the third-dimension. Cutscenes will still feature 2D art.

Corpse Party: Blood Drive has not yet been confirmed for North America. For our review of Corpse Party and its sequel, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, hit the links.

Our Take
The new art direction has the potential to make the game creepier. Some may decry the change from 2D to 3D, but with a game like Corpse Party, I think it could be beneficial. Hopefully the game makes its way to North America.
