Tecmo Koei’s Deception series will be making its way onto the PlayStation 4 later this year as Deception: IV: The Nightmare Princess has just been announced for Western release.
Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is a standalone expansion to Deception IV: Blood Ties which has players reliving Laegrinna’s story to free her father, the Devil, from his eternal prison by defeating her foes through the use of traps.
Players will also be introduced to a new character, Velguirie, whose story is shrouded in mystery and will require players to solve one hundred quests in the new Quest Mode to discover who she really is. All we know is that Velguirie is a dangerous creature that takes pleasure in setting up intricately complex combinations of traps to lure her victims to their untimely death. She has a unique set of abilities that develop as certain quests are completed as well as adding previously defeated protagonists to the player’s arsenal.
Over 180 traps will be available to choose from that includes banana peels, falling bathtubs, rolling boulders, and balance beams across a number of settings, like medieval castles, hospitals, playgrounds, and amusement parks.
Koei Tecmo has an exclusive pre-order DLC bonus for those who pre-order at GameStop. They’ll receive a Grill trap (a fire-walking pit), a Kick-Off trap (think of a tennis ball machine, but with soccer balls), and a Golden Toilet (a trap that catapults victims into the air using a strong jet of water.)
Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita on July 14.
