Last month, Tecmo Koei announced a new Deception game is in development for PlayStation 3 and Vita, called Deception IV: Blood Ties. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares some details on the latest installment of the strategy RPG series.
The producer of the game is Keisuke Kikuchi, best known as the creator of the Fatal Frame series. Hirotoaka Maeda who has done character designs for Square Enix, D3, and 5pb will also be lend a hand in designing the characters of Deception IV: Blood Ties. This time around, they’ll be putting more emphasis on the “evil” part of the game.
The protagonist is named Regrina, who is said to be the daughter of the devil. Her objective is to find the descendants of the twelve saints who sealed her father, and she will get help from three Mediums (Trap Summoners) in order to eliminate her target.
The three dark Mediums who’ll be helping her are the magnificent Kaelia, Lilia of humiliation, and Verza of cruelty.
Deception IV: Blood Ties has a huge Wizard Gear you can ride on, which can also be used as a trap. In the previous Deception games, you were only able to set three traps at a time, but this time it will allow for more set-ups. There will also be a new “Armor Break” system, that allows you to catch armored foes into traps and destroy their equipment.
Deception IV: Blood Ties is slated for release on February 27, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Vita.
