Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess PlayStation Launch Video

Koei Tecmo Europe has released the launch trailer for Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess.

The Nightmare Princess follows on the heels of Deception IV: Blood Ties which revolved around Laegrinna, a deceitful fragment of the Devil’s soul whochose 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 with a shroud of mystery and the player will have to solve the 100 quests in the brand new Quest Mode to find out who she really is. The only certainty is that Velguirie is an incredibly dangerous creature that takes extreme pleasure in setting up 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 in the side of evil up a notch, Velguirie has a unique set of abilities that grow with every successful quest completion. 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, spiked walls, horse-heads 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.

Here is the launch trailer:

Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess launches today in America and across Europe July 17 for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
