Publisher PQube and developer SONNORI will release survival horror game White Day: A Labyrinth Named School for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and Switch in September, the companies announced. The PlayStation 5 and Switch versions will be available both physically and digitally.
The new version will include over 30 costumes originally released as downloadable content.
Here is an overview of the game, via the official website:
On the eve of the gift-giving holiday White Day, new Yeondu High School student, Lee Hee-min, sneaks into school to hide a box of candies for the girl of his dreams. But when the shutters slam shut, he finds himself trapped in the building overnight, hunted by killer janitors and haunted by the troubled souls of the dead.
Can Hee-min remain hidden while searching for clues to uncover the dark secrets of the building’s past? Or will the horrors that stalk the school’s eerie hallways by night claim his life before he can escape? With no weapons and limited supplies, there’s little room for error in this tense, stealth-based, Korean Horror classic, brimming with secrets, branching stories, and multiple endings.
