Corpse Party: Blood Drive is the direct sequel to Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, and is the first game featuring setting and characters rendered in 3D. The characters are depicted in 3D chibi style, however traditional CG artworks will appear during cutscenes, illustrated by Makoto Kedouin.
Two months after the events of Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Ayumi Shinozaki had been severely ill for her use of the Book of Shadows' black magic. In the prologue, after escaping Heavenly Host, Ayumi and Naomi Nakashima went to investigate the Shinozaki estate, Sachiko Shinozaki's home, believing there's hope to revive their dead friends since Naho Saenoki and Kou Kibiki's existences weren't erased like the other victims. At the estate, Ayumi discovered that she is of the same lineage as Sachiko. Hearing an eerie voice, Ayumi uncovers a magical tome known as the Book of Shadows. Ayumi and Naomi attempted a resurrection spell for Mayu Suzumoto, but failed. As a result, the book unleashed its rage upon Ayumi until her older sister Hinoe Shinozaki rushed in and presumably saved Ayumi, at the cost of her own safety. Hinoe is shown to have lost a large amount of blood, leaving Ayumi screaming in terror. Naomi managed to save Ayumi and took her to a hospital. However, the Shinozaki estate and tome have vanished.
In the hospital, a girl claiming to be a spiritual associate of Hinoe visits Ayumi. This girl belongs to the Wiccan Institute, an organization that worships spirits. She told Ayumi to regain the Book of Shadows or the world will fall into the abyss.
After being discharged from the hospital, Ayumi returned to Kisaragi Academy where Satoshi Mochida and friends gave her a warm welcome. However, the absences of their dead friends were a constant reminder of their inevitable reality. Now a new teacher's assistant, Kuon Niwa, supervises her homeroom. Then later, on her way home, a hooded boy approached Ayumi and told her, "If you reclaim the Book of Shadows and use it at Heavenly Host, those who have died there will be revived." Ayumi pledged that she will once more take back the Book of Shadows. The trail now leads into the previous residence of Makina Shinozaki. For Ayumi, it was the responsibility of Shinozaki's bloodline.
The player takes control over the character during exploration events, and the Dummy Head Mic from previous games will return, allowing the player to perceive directional sounds by listening through headphones. The opening song is performed by Asami Imai (Ayumi Shinozaki) and Yumi Hara (Satsuki Mizuhara).
