Deception IV: Blood Ties Has Atelier Totori And Dead or Alive Costumes

By Ishaan . April 16, 2014 . 3:02pm

Did you know that Deception IV: Blood Ties has costumes based on the Dead or Alive and Atelier series? Tecmo’s diabolical trap game allows you to equip a costume based on Dead or Alive’s Ayane and Atelier Totori’s Totori.



In order to unlock the two outfits, Tecmo Koei say you need to “clear many or all missions in Mission Mode”. This isn’t the first time they’ve included crossover costumes in their games either. Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends has costumes from Atelier Rorona and Toukiden.


Deception IV: Blood Ties is available on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

    Yay! All I want now is Kagero: Deception II on PSN as PS1 Classic. We already have Trapt. Now let me have the trilogy!

    • TheAquacharger

      You know there are 5 game in the deception series right? Confusingly enough there’s Deception 3 Trapt on PS1 and then there is the PS2 Trapt, which is a different game then the PS1 trapt.
      Also there is Tecmo Presents Deception.

      • Shiki

        You seem misinformed. There are 5 games in the Deception series. However, story of the Deception series are not interlinked except for the second one, Trapt and Deception IV. Technically, those are the trilogy and the first and third game in the series have no story connection.
        The Japanese website and sources make it more clear about this trilogy. And I love how my copy of Deception IV LE came with a OST package that includes Deception II, Trapt and Deception IV soundtracks.

        Now you know~.

        • TheAquacharger

          I knew that, but I’ve come across a lot of people who thought there were only three deception games and this being the 4th one.
          and I wish I had that LE, that’d be pretty amazing to have.

  • YES. Now I can partially fulfill my secret lifelong wish of bloodily executing Punis – if they’re human-shaped, wear armor and have corny dialogue. Those pudgy squishy smiley little buggers had it coming.

  • This seems rather odd. XD Polar opposites and such. Totori is a lovely, darling alchemist and the heroine of this game is fierce and cutthroat. Also, traps.

    • MrTyrant

      Maybe Totori has sadist tendencies that we don’t know of….

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Boy, does that Totori costume look weird on the character. I’ll always associate it with a cute, scared little girl crawling off her egg~.

  • I still need to pick up Deception IV, and this makes me want to pick it up even more =)

  • Sapitntapit

    This game looks so tempting to buy…

    • AkuLord3

      Its pretty FUN~

    • Ladius

      It’s really fun and quite unique, especially if you’re new to the series. I strongly suggest to give it a chance if you like what you saw after watching some footage.

  • AkuLord3

    I hope there’s a costume of the Heroine from Deception II on it (haven’t unlocked costumes yet). I see there’s a Deception but that could be ANYTHING of the…3/4 games

  • Gekokujou

    Although the Totori costume does not suit her one bit, seeing this gives me hope that we may see the Rorona costume on the western release of Dynasty Warriors 8 XL.

  • MrTakeba

    Does TK consider Kasumi and Ayane to be co-mascots for DOA now? It seems like we’re seeing more costume DLC either released for both characters concurrently, like some of the pre-order bonuses for other TK games, or in this case, Ayane even getting the nod over Kasumi. Not that I’m a Kasumi fan mind you, just wondering. I thought DOA was ultimately her story with all the clones and DOATEC and Hayate’s memory loss or whatever.

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      From what I believe, Kasumi is pretty much the mascot/star of DOA.

      As for Ayane, the inclusion of her costume makes sense in a Deception game, she usually gets a Deception costume in DOA. Although she is probably the next person character-wise people might associate the series with too.

      I think you got the right idea in your post, it’s mostly suppose to be about Kasumi.

    • landlock

      I always thought Kasumi was the mascot character and that most likely Kasumi/Ayane are the most popular characters.

  • Atmey

    I was playing for more than an hour on an early level, thinking of combos and ways to capture, then I wasn’t paying much attention of enemy and he killed me, I had to play the previous 4 or 5 levels to reach the same point I did, I stopped playing and I think this was probably the reason I didn’t complete the previous ones.

    I didn’t know, awesome!
