Originally released in its native South Korea all the way back in 2001, the cult classic horror game White Day: A Labyrinth Named School will finally be coming to the US on August 1. This version is a full remake with hugely improved visuals and various other extra features. It will be available for the PS4, and will come to PC at a later date.
The game finds a boy named Hui-min Lee trapped overnight in a school filled with ghosts, demons and all manner of nightmarish things. You may recall that another South Korean game with a similar premise called The Coma made its way to PC last year, although White Day had the idea first.
A 30 minute gameplay video was recently shown during MCM London Comic Con last month, and it’s sure to give you chills.
White Day: A Labyrinth Named School was developed and published by ROI Games, and is currently available for pre-order. The official box art can be viewed below.
