PQube sent out a press release and new adventure trailer for their upcoming survival horror remaster, White Day: A Labyrinth Named School. The game was originally released in South Korea in 2001 and over the years became a lost classic of the genre. In 2015 the title was rereleased with better graphics and new content and now that version is finally making it to the West. Luckily PS4 and PC owners will be able to tackle this ghost story (after a slight delay) on August 22nd in North America and Europe on August 25th.
The story concerns a number of students at Yeondoo High School who get stuck within the building during the Valentines-esque celebration of White Day. The classrooms and hallways hold many secrets and literal ghosts of the past but even more concerning is the killer janitor hunting our heroes. With difficult puzzles, branching storylines, tense hide-and-seek segments, and love blooming in the (haunted) battlefield, you’ll need to use all your skills to make it out alive.
The press release also gave some information about the new content in the remastered version of White Day: A Labyrinth Called School. A new ‘sequel story’ can be unlocked which features an up-to-now unknown character by the name of Ji-min Yoo. This student ‘takes centre stage and faces the terrors of the night in a thrilling mystery that explores the history of the school and takes place during the events of the main game’.
The trailer itself is nicely done and gives away enough action and story tidbits to keep my attention. As a survival horror fan, I’m definitely liking what I see here and I can’t wait until the end of the month. The press release links to an Amazon preorder page for the game which is $29.99 USD.
