Expect Eerie Extraterrestrials on PlayStation®4 and “PSVita” and Supernatural Schoolchildren on Nintendo 3DS in Two Suspenseful Indie-Developed Titles Released Just in Time for Halloween
Torrance, Calif. — October 25, 2016 — XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announced that the retro-styled 2D sci-fi platformer, Exile’s End, is now available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system in North America. In addition, the Nintendo 3DS™ version of the much-lauded horror adventure, Corpse Party, is also now available in North America with exclusive features and content digitally via the Nintendo eShop as well as in a limited Back to School Edition physical release, which includes high-quality miniature figurines of characters Naomi Nakashima and Seiko Shinohara, as well as a soundtrack CD containing nearly 80 minutes of in-game music.
To celebrate a simultaneously spooky launch day, a new trailer has been released for both titles alongside brand new screenshots.
[Platforms: PS4™ and “PSVita”] Exile’s End is a dark and futuristic 2D sidescroller offering adventure-style puzzles, tightly-controlled platforming, and dangerous extraterrestrials. The game was developed as an homage to early ’90s action-adventure PC games, drawing heavy gameplay inspiration from classics of the genre as well as thematic influence from ’80s sci-fi films and anime. Boasting uniquely stylized cutscenes, multiple endings, and an atmospheric soundtrack by Keiji Yamagishi of Ninja Gaiden and Tecmo Super Bowl fame, Exile’s End will have players investigate a massive, interconnected alien world and experience a story filled with ancient riddles and modern-day hubris. Backed by Japanese publisher Marvelous Inc. and originally released for Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam, Exile’s End is a collaboration between Tokyo-based indie game developer Matt Fielding and many talented local industry veterans, including art by staff from titles such as Secret of Mana, Mother 3 and more.
Developed by Magnetic Realms and published in North America by XSEED Games, Exile’s End has entered orbit digitally on PS4™ and “PSVita” systems via the PlayStation®Store in North America for $9.99. More information on the Wii U™ digital release will be provided at a later time. This title has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB, PEGI 12, USK 6, and PG by the ACB.
[Platform: Nintendo 3DS] In the cult hit horror adventure Corpse Party, players take control of a group of Japanese high school students who inadvertently engage in a pagan ritual and find themselves inexplicably transported into a whole other space: an inescapable echo of a long-since demolished school building where a series of gruesome murders once took place. Remastered from the 2011 PSP (PlayStation®Portable) system release, the Nintendo 3DS rendition of Corpse Party features redrawn, high-resolution character sprites, newly arranged music tracks in binaural 3D audio, and 3D art stills, as well as four new Extra Chapters exclusive to this version that provide insight into lesser-shown characters and plot elements previously left unexplained.
Corpse Party for Nintendo 3DS is now available physically for the first time in English through a limited Back to School Edition priced at $49.99, which includes 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, offering three tracks exclusive to this Nintendo 3DS version. In addition to the limited Back to School Edition physical release, Corpse Party has received a digital release on the North American Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS for $29.99. The title will also see a digital-only release tomorrow on the European Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS for €29.99/£24.99, as well as in Australia for $49.95 AUD.
Originally developed as an independent title by Team GrisGris and published by XSEED Games, Corpse Party is now available on Nintendo 3DS in North America. The European version will launch on October 26, 2016. This title has been rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB, PEGI 18, USK 18, and R 18+ by the ACB.
