Dead or School - more gameplay


Join Hisako’s fight for survival against the zombie infestation overrunning Tokyo and defend her right to a normal school life in this fast-paced 2.5D adventure. Forced into isolation underground by the zombie apocalypse, Hisako has little understanding of the world above. After hearing stories about schools aboveground, Hisako dons her grandmother's school uniform and takes up arms against the undead horde with one goal in mind: to become a school girl!

Dead or School getting retail release in the UK

I guess school is the better option...barely

Dead or School has been officially confirmed for a physical Switch release in the UK, and Marvelous will be handling the publishing duties. The UK is the only region we can confirm a physical release for right now, but hopefully other regions will be announced in the near future. Even if other regions don't end up getting a physical option, you can always import from the UK and still enjoy the game in English. The title is slated to hit the UK on Feb. 14th, 2020, and is priced at $25.

Thanks to JPSwitchMania for the heads up!

Details are currently very scarce, but there will apparently be three versions of the game available, each with a different model. Launching in June, July, and August of 2020, "Idol X VR x Training" will be a seemingly very unique experience on Switch.
