Marvelous Europe (and maybe XSEED Games) might be bringing the Dead Or School hack’n’slash RPG, which has been out in Japan for a while, across the pond.
The Australian rating board rated the Studio Nanafushi-developed Dead or School, which has been on Steam since June, and it came out on PlayStation 4 and Steam in late August in Japan (both physically and digitally, with English language support).
„Zombies conquered the land of Tokyo. Without hope, in underground shelters, people lived quietly. Hisako, a girl who grew up underground, heard the word “school” from her grandmother. School is where children play and learn. It is a paradise for young people. The best place to spend their youth. Hisako dreamed of this “school,” and one day, she was on an underground train heading above ground. What awaits her? Despair…

Hisako, the protagonist grew up underground, in despair, while the surface world was controlled by zombies. Gifted with superior athletic abilities and a strong determination, her mind is unaffected. She faces the reality of the ground above. Her dreams are to make a lot of friends and play in school! Though, she does not like studying,” the game’s Steam page reads.
The game’s title is quite Engrish – it should be Death or School, shouldn’t it? Anyway, the game is likely coming to the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch in the West, probably early 2020. Maybe before that. Will it be censored on PS4, though?
