Deception IV: Blood Ties Dishes Out A Deadly Combo

By Spencer . February 3, 2014 . 3:00pm


Deception IV: Blood Ties is all about throwing enemies from one trap into another. You can’t do aerial raves, but you can create some neat combinations. While not as cool as the banana peel combo, catching an enemy on a blade probably does more damage.


Deception IV: Blood Ties comes out on March 25 for PS3 and PlayStation Vita in March 25. Japan gets the game on February 27.

    WTF?? So a triangle horse was included as a trap?

    • Brion Valkerion

      Old torture device, now its seen as more of a S&M thing though. Odd how something used to brutally slowly kill people is now used to get them off lol.

    • Chip

      The top edge is bladed. In proper use, the victim would be bound to the head of the horse, and weights added to their feet. The slow drag would start to cut you in half over time.

    Acme Corporation in full force! The dozen rake trap was incredible.

  • Kaien


  • Luis Camargo

    Hopefully, the secret character will be the Coyote from Looney Tunes

  • Demeanor

    Wut? Still alive after all THAT???

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      And with all her limbs as well. I’m pretty sure the giant yo-yo would have killed her instantly.

  • Loli Summoner


  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    This game is the best thing ever; the part that happens at 0:15 kills me~.

  • Scipio

    That’s pretty interesting. I can’t say I’ve seen any other game with a combat system like that.

    • Brion Valkerion

      Its a long running franchise since the PS1 days. The third game (Trapt) is being released tomorrow on PSN I think as a PS2 classic.

      • Scipio

        Cool, I’ll check it out.

  • LDM

    The trap at :15 made me very uncomfortable; I assume this is equivalent of a man getting kicked in the groin. However, I will still get this game. It’s been years since I played a Deception game.

    • Frimelda

      Not only that, but that punishment WOULD work on men too, it’d simply tear their scrotum in two.

  • AshCrimsonIIDX

    I’m in tears laughing at how random this is. Instant buy from me.

  • Kornelious

    Well that was a bit uncalled f- Wait, she’s still flinching! KILL IT WITH FIRE!

  • Kitestwinblades

    Some of the oldest tricks in the book thrown in for good measure XD
    Its like I can hear sitcom laugh tracks played for every awkward trap.

  • Shiki

    I really hope they bring the premium edition to the US. Please give me an incentive to give you more money, Tecmo Koei.

  • Zalin

    The moment and I mean the very MOMENT! This game gets listed for pre-order I will grab me a copy!

  • Umm…I think ya got her…

  • lordsofskulls
