Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess – Demo Announced

Koei Tecmo Europe is pleased to announce a free downloadable demo available from 6th July 2015 across Europe for upcoming guilty-pleasure, trap action title Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess, the PlayStation 4 debut for the Deception series, produced by the creator of the Project Zero (aka Fatal Frame) series, Keisuke Kikuchi.

This hearty Demo will be downloable from the PlayStation Network Store and will include a rich selection of content, geared to whet the appetites of both newcomers and experienced players of the series.

Specifically, the demo will include the first two chapters of the Story Mode, which feature a detailed tutorial designed to teach new players how to manoeuvre their character, set traps, and activate them at the right moment so they defeat their enemies before they have a chance to attack.  There will be no missions playable in this section.


For players that have experience in the world of Deception, the Demo will accentuate on the new Quest mode and the brand new character, Velguirie.  There will be a total of 12 Quests available to play through, which can also be saved, downloaded, and replayed from the Kagero Studio.  To better illustrate what the gameplay would be like on higher levels, some features have been unlocked early.  These include the ability to create 7-trap-long combo sequences, as well as some of Velguirie’s unique powers (Kick and Dash).

Due to the fact that the Demo is tweaked to showcase a levelled up character in the initial Quests, save data from the Demo will not be transferable to the final game upon release.  However, for those that would like to show off their combos, PS4 Share functionality will be enabled!

The game will be available on the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system across Europe on 17th July 2015.  It will also be simultaneously available digitally on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the PlayStation Vita handheld system.

For those who would like to pre-order the title, early purchases through GAME come with a ‘Grill’ trap- essentially a fire-walking pit that will cause enemies to quickly tip toe across (that is, if they land feet first).  Independent retailers (through Centresoft) will offer a ‘Kick-Off’ trap- a mechanical apparatus that kicks high speed footballs in the direction of the player’s adversaries.  PlayStation Network will offer a ‘Golden Horse’ trap which takes its victims on an agonising and humiliating ride they will never forget.

Finally, pre-order through is lavishly accompanied by a ‘Golden Toilet’ – a trap that shows up from the floor under the unsuspecting victim’s legs, only to catapult them in the air with a jet of water!
