110w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has posted up a video today spotlighting Corpse Party and the Psychology of Horror on Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We love to be scared. There's something so primal and universal about fear, and a good horror story can really bring out the best of it, making our hearts race and our minds veer toward the darkest recesses of the human psyche. And we just keep going back for more!
Yet by the same token, horror has become so passe that we barely even react when we encounter imagery of skeletons, zombies, witches, bats, vampires and ghouls. True primal fear is hard to come by in the modern world, and this applies to video games as well.
When you hear the term "horror game," what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Probably "zombies" since that seems to characterize much of the horror genre nowadays.
Most modern horror games assault you with wave after wave of zombies, and you can typically one-shot them back to their graves. They may look scary, but when's the last time you were actually frightened in a zombie shooter game?

To quote: So you've taken an interest in Corpse Party, have you? Perhaps you were intrigued by the launch trailer, or laughed at the name when you saw it mentioned on your favorite gaming news site (or hilarious webcomic?).
Perhaps you're a fan of survival horror games, or visual novels, or point-and-click adventures... or perhaps you simply enjoy Japanese horror movies like The Ring and The Grudge, and are always looking for your next fix.
Regardless of why you've taken an interest or how you got to this blog, there's one thing that most likely holds true: You have very little idea what Corpse Party actually is.
Our launch trailer focused on the most important aspects of the game - those being its unsettling atmosphere and its dark-as-night storyline - but did very little to indicate exactly how it's played. So, let's dig a little deeper and find out exactly what horrors await, shall we?
In the broadest terms, Corpse Party is a horror adventure game. You play as an ensemble cast of seven senior high school students, one junior high school student and one senior high school English...
