Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess – Live Action Trailer
Serving as a successor to Deception IV: Blood Ties, Koei Tecmo Europe have confirmed that the trap action title Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is headed to the PlayStation 4 starting July 16th 2015 via retail and digital channels. It will also be available simultaneously as a digital-exclusive release on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems.
The Nightmare Princess follows on the heels of Deception IV: Blood Ties, which revolved around Laegrinna, a deceitful fragment of the Devil’s soul who chose between Sadistic Torment, Elaborate Death, or Humiliating Demise, to defeat her foes through trickery. In this new installment players relive Laegrinna’s entire pursuit to free her father, the Devil, from his eternal prison, they also get introduced to an entirely new, wickedly sadistic, and infernally mischievous character: Velguirie.
Velguirie’s story is covered with a shroud of mystery and the player will have to solve the one hundred quests in the brand new Quest Mode to find out who she really is. The only certainty is that Velguirie is an incredibly dangerous creature that takes extreme pleasure in setting up intricately complex combinations of traps to lure her victims to their untimely, yet in her eyes wildly entertaining, death.
Players with have access to over 170 traps, including rolling boulders, spring boards, falling bathtubs, balance beams, human cannons and iron maidens. These will be usable in a variety of settings ranging from medieval hospitals and playgrounds and amusement parks.
Expect to hear more on this game in the weeks/months leading up to the game’s launch. Distribution of Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is being handled by Mindscape in Australia and New Zealand.
