Late last year, I brought news of an updated version of Deception IV: Blood Ties that was announced for Japan. Now, that expanded version of the game is making its way to the West.
Titled Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess on our shores, this expanded version of the game will not only include everything that originally came in Blood Ties, but will also contain an entirely new chapter, one focused on a character named Velguirie. 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” according to Koei Tecmo’s press release, Velguirie’s story will unfold over 100 challenges in a new Quest Mode. Of course, new traps will also be coming along as well, because what would a Deception game be without an ever-growing list of humorous yet humiliating ways to punish your enemies?
Even if it wasn’t without its faults, I still had a lot of fun with Deception IV: Blood Ties?if you’re unfamiliar with the game, why not go read my review by clicking here? If you did miss it the first time around, The Nightmare Princess seems like the perfect way to finally get caught up with the game. And if you already played it before? Well, the release of this expanded version on PlayStation 4 may perhaps be enough to get you to give it another play through.
Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess hits for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita on July 14th, 2015.
