Here’s what you need to know about Blood Drive:
The final installment of the supernatural story that began with Corpse Party and continued in Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Corpse Party: Blood Drive ups the ante by allowing players to explore Heavenly Host Elementary in full 3D for the first time, with all of its formerly 2D environments meticulously recreated and greatly expanded. New gameplay systems provide more exciting interactions for players experiencing the gruesome finale to this tale of an inescapable, otherworldly school populated by vengeful spirits, including a dynamic lighting system aided by an in-game flashlight, talismans to protect the player characters from danger, deadly traps to disarm, cabinets to hide in, a stamina system that allows for limited dashing, and much more.
As well, you’ll find the original Japanese voiceovers, binaural 3D audio for simulated surround sound, the screen-altering “Darkening” system, bonus unlockables such as voice actor interviews, art, music, and more, and 11 story chapters and 8 Extra Chapters.
