PQube announced that White Day: A Labyrinth Named School is coming to North America for Steam on PC and for the PlayStation 4. The classic Korean horror title has been localized and dubbed in English for the Western audience, and it’s scheduled to launch on Steam and PS4 in North America starting August 22nd, 2017. European gamers will be able to get their hands on the title starting August 25th, 2017.
This may be a very niche title, but the Korean horror game definitely managed to make its way around the inner circles of gaming to become a cult classic.
A teaser trailer featuring the new English dubs is available for viewing below, giving you an idea of the scares and creep-factors you can expect to experience in the school-themed horror title.
The game fits into the survival-horror category, giving gamers a thrilling romp through a Korean high school while facing off against ghastly specters and angry ghosts.
The game has been remade with new dynamically changing puzzles, all new storylines that affect the game’s multiple endings, and the creepy atmosphere that helped set the game apart so many years ago.
The trailer doesn’t really do much at all to help put into perspective what the actual gameplay is like, and the press release does even less to exemplify what the control scheme is like, what the mechanics are like, or any other gameplay related details for the uninitiated.
I suppose some people who absolutely don’t know anything about the game will just head to YouTube and watch a Let’s Play, defeating the whole purpose of playing it when it launches this August.
In the meantime you can keep an eye out for more news as PQube adds the final touches on the remake of White Day leading up to the game’s release at the twilight of summer for Steam and PS4.
