Thanks for reminding me: I need to PLAY the sequel to that! Gotta preorder it a.s.a.p., as finding a copy of the Japanese LE for the first game was a real pain in the tuckus even one short month after its release. 5pb seems to print their LEs in ludicrously small quantities, and they gain in value VERY, VERY quickly.
From what the trailers suggest, the sequel is an *actual* sequel, featuring the same cast of characters one year later... so playing the first game may turn out to be a prerequisite for understanding the story of Corpse Party 2.
Also, SpaceDrake: The PSP version is actually a far superior game, in this particular case. Don't know if you've actually played both versions, but a lot was added to the PSP version that really makes it the better choice in almost every way. If you've yet to play Corpse Party, I highly recommend betraying your PC roots, and giving it a go on the PSP -- as painful as that may be for you.
And Yuki-chan: Another great guess! That game's intrigued me ever since the first article I read about it. Man, I love the PSP!! (:
My guess goes to Grand Knights History. I'm still waiting for Zwei!! ;_;, but I'm honestly surprised you guys have time to work on another PSP title with Sora no Kiseki SC sitting on your plates

I want it to be an adventure game.
And Adrian-kun: That wish is very likely to come true, since the vast majority of horror titles on the PSP *are* adventure games. Corpse Party, Dangan-Ronpa and Tsuku Monogatari alike all fall clearly within the adventure genre -- I think the only title anyone's guessed so far which doesn't is Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke (another awesome game), which is a straight-up turn-based RPG.
will this get a umd release? the surprise game?
I'm not an XSEED employee, so don't take my word for it, but I'd say it's likely. UMD releases aren't just suddenly going to disappear because of the Vita. There's the chance something else may pop up, but I sincerely doubt it would be DD-only just because of the Vita.will this get a umd release? the surprise game?
As for the game itself, my bet's on Corpse Party, as well.
Sadly, a UMD release is actually *not* very likely for any niche PSP titles publishers release from here on out, as producing UMDs, cases and instruction manuals costs quite a bit of money, as does paying stores to stock the game on their shelves. Download-only is much cheaper from a publishing standpoint, and with the PSP "on its way out," so to speak (and especially if the game is niche enough), the likelihood of making back one's initial investment with a UMD release decreases quite a bit.
I'm not saying with certainty that this particular title will be download-only -- after all, for all you know, it may be a really big-name release that's destined to sell MILLIONS... but I wouldn't go into any upcoming PSP title from now on expecting a UMD release, if I were you, as I think that's going to become less and less common for the remainder of the system's lifespan.
