Amazon has leaked another game, this time for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. More specifically, the UK branch of the retailer has leaked that Dead or School is coming to the aforementioned platforms on March 13 via publisher Marvelous. At the moment, the listing only mentions a European release, but there's a good chance it's also coming to the United States on the same day or around the same time.
Developed by Studio Nanafushi, the hack-and-slash action game meets RPG debuted last year on PC via Steam. Meanwhile, it then came to Switch and PS4 a few months later, but only in Japan. Now, at the moment, a western release has not been officially announced, but it looks like Amazon has gone ahead and done the job of announcing that.
"As part of this adventure for a modern-day high school life, Hisako travels across Tokyo using the subway system with each mission being located at a familiar location in Tokyo," reads an official pitch of the game. "Players will travel through and explore locations such as Shinjuku, Asakusa, Akihabara, and Roppongi as they attempt to defeat the zombie infestation overthrowing the city. To aid Hisako’s quest, players will also be able to upgrade Hisako’s weapons and skill sets, as well as unlock entirely new weapons that will make sure the dead stay dead."0comments
