Originally released on the Mega CD back in 1994, Digital Pictures’ Corpse Killer was, like stablemates Night Trap and Ground Zero: Texas, based on FMV sequences with very limited player interaction – yet it gained a cult following over the years that culminated in a remastered edition for PS4 and PC in 2019.
That version is now getting a release on Switch as Corpse Killer: 25th Anniversary Edition, thanks to developer Screaming Villains. Like Night Trap – 25th Anniversary Edition, which came packed with behind-the-scenes material, Corpse Killer: 25th Anniversary Edition will feature 6 hours of unseen production footage as well as loads of photos taken at the time of development. It will also include updated visuals and a selection of new zombie actors, filmed especially for this edition of the game.
Limited Run Games has confirmed that physical versions will also be released, and that pre-orders will take place on October 30th at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.

With Winston and Julie, your mission is to infiltrate Hellman’s compound and rescue four of your comrades and stop Dr. Hellman from carrying out his plan.
