Written by: / / 1 Comment


If you’re looking to play something completely different on your PS3 and PS Vita then look no further than Tecmo Koei’s upcoming strategy-focused action game Deception IV: Blood Ties which allows you to choose from a range of traps in order to defeat your enemies.

The publisher recently announced that Deception IV will be released via the PlayStation Network on March 25th in North America and March 28th in PAL territories. The game is being produced by Fatal Frame creator, Keisuke Kikuchi, and is the latest entry in the Deception franchise which has sold over 800 000 copies worldwide.

Here’s more on the game courtesy of Tecmo Koei’s press release:

“Deception IV: Blood Ties follows the story of Laegrinna, an animated fragment of an imprisoned Devil’s soul, as she battles her enemies by mischievously luring them into strategically placed traps. From rolling boulders and spiked walls to spring boards, iron maidens, human cannons, falling bathtubs and banana peels, the player can choose from a multitude of dramatic, sadistic, and comical traps in order to finish off an enemy.

“However, simply setting traps is not enough, as they need to be activated in turn. Timing also plays an important role, as an untimely activation could result in Laegrinna falling into her own trap or allowing her rivals to catch her. Depending on the manner in which an enemy is killed or captured, the Devil’s three servants – Veruza, Caelea and Lilia (each representing a different aspect of cruelty: Sadistic Torment, Elaborate Death and Humiliating Demise) – reward points and upgraded traps.”

If this sadistic premise sounds intriguing to you then be sure to check out Deception IV’s teaser trailer and first batch of English screenshots below:
