Walk Over My Corpse (Ore no Shikabane wo Koeteyuke) is one of the great Japanese RPGs of the PS1 era that was never released outside of Japan. With its Sumi-e style graphics, complex class-based battle system and in-depth breeding mechanic, missing out on it is truly a loss for RPG fans the world over.
Luckily, with an enhanced remake released on the PSP last year, those interested finally have a chance to play it in all its newfound, non-region locked glory.
The game itself follows a family, cursed to live an entire lifespan in just two years, as they try to find and defeat the demon responsible. Unable to breed with normal humans, they must seduce the gods themselves by fighting spirits and monsters across an ancient mystical Japan, generation after generation. But what exactly does it play like? Well, check out the video above to see for yourself and stay tuned for Kotaku East's full import preview later this week.
Walk Over My Corpse (Ore no Shikabane wo Koeteyuke) was released on June 18, 1999, on the PSX; February 22, 2007, on PSN; and November 10, 2011, on the PSP. There are currently no plans for an international release.
