MEET THE GIRL OF YOUR NIGHTMARES…
KOEI TECMO Announces Upcoming Release and Pre-order Bonus for
Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess
BURLINGAME, Calif. – April 30, 2015 – KOEI TECMO America today announced the upcoming release of trap action title, Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess, the PlayStation®4 debut for the Deception series, produced by the creator of the Fatal Frame (also known as Project Zero) series, Keisuke Kikuchi, and developed by Koei Tecmo Games in Japan. The game will launch in North America for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on July 14, 2015. It will also be available digitally for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the PlayStation®Vita handheld system.
Deception IV: 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 not only 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 in a shroud of mystery and the player will have to solve one hundred quests in the new Quest Mode to discover who she really is. The only certainty is that Velguirie is an incredibly dangerous creature that takes extreme pleasure in setting intricately complex combinations of traps to lure her victims to their untimely – yet in her eyes, wildly entertaining – death. Taking the franchise’s spirit of casting the player on the side of evil up a notch, Velguirie has a unique set of abilities that develop as certain quests are completed. With an immense selection of traps at her disposal, she can also try to defeat the previous protagonists of the Deception series and add them to the player’s arsenal.
Rolling boulders and spring boards, falling bathtubs and banana peels, balance beams, human cannons and iron maidens are only a few of the more than 180 traps that players can choose from to create the funniest, darkest, or most elaborate combos to defeat their adversaries in delightfully imaginative settings that now include medieval castles, hospitals, playgrounds, and amusement parks.
Koei Tecmo also announced an exclusive pre-order DLC bonus for those who decide to gain an early edge in creating the ultimate trap combo! Specifically, those who pre-order through GameStop will get an exclusive DLC set that includes: a ‘Grill’ trap (essentially a fire-walking pit), a ‘Kick-Off’ trap (a mechanical apparatus that kicks high speed soccer balls in the direction of the player’s adversaries), and a ‘Golden Toilet’ (a trap that shows up from the floor under the unsuspecting victim’s legs only to catapult them in the air with a jet of water!).
Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is published by KOEI TECMO America in North America and will launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and the PlayStation®Vita on July 14, 2015. This game has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
abilities, graphics and there's actually an "oomph" to these weapons, unlike Paladins. (5 minutes ago)
I'm impressed by how many interesting characters there actually are here. If I compare this to Paladins I really only like two or three characters there. Not to mention the much better level design (6 minutes ago)
But this for me seems to be the game that I want to get better at and hopefully get better too. It's going well against medium cpu (53 minutes ago)
Now since I'm a newbie to the game I've been playing against medium cpu with other players, so chances are when I go against actual people I will get my ass beaten (54 minutes ago)
Been playing Overwatch all morning and I'm quite enjoying it. Really digging a lot of the characters too. Awesome designs. (1 Hour ago)
Shinobi 3 on the megadrive is the best one imo. Hard as all hell, but great controls and very fun to play. (4 Hours ago)
Super Shinobi on Mega Drive was awesome, gameplay and also music (Yuzo Koshiro). AND it had Batman and Spider-Man, at least in the japanese version, if I recall correctly :) (4 Hours ago)
