Good morning. Remember Night Trap, the nutty FMV game for the SEGA CD back in the early 90’s? It’s back, and in a matter of weeks no less.
Due out on August 15 (US time) for PC and PS4, the Night Trap re-release is designed to mark the FMV game’s 25th anniversary. (An Xbox One release is coming as well, but there’s no release date for that yet.) A lot of people won’t have played the original game, mind you, especially given that the SEGA CD was far from a cheap console back in the day.
One of the more interesting facets of the re-release is the inclusion of Scene Of The Crime, an unreleased prototype that was made in 1986. Scene of the Crime was pitched to Hasbro executives to help sell an console that used VHS tapes instead of ROM cartridges. That console never came out, however, because Hasbro didn’t think they would be able to compete with the cheaper NES at the time.
Night Trap‘s re-release will also have a special survivor mode, where the difficulty increases with every round you complete, as well as deleted scenes, developer commentary and a theatre mode that lets you watch all story-related scenes.
