Deception IV: Blood Ties’ upgraded version adds a new protagonist, brings back past protagonists as villains, and a Quest Mode that features over 100 new challenges. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shows what else is new. [Thanks, Zaregoto.]
In addition to bringing back characters like Millennia, Allura, and Reina from past Deception games (and Trapt,) Deception IV’s The Other Princess upgrade will also reintroduce traps from past games such as the Suezo, Genocide Eye, and more.
The story mode from Blood Ties will be available as a bonus, but the main one will be the Quest Mode, this time around. As previously reported, the Quest Mode features a bunch of new challenges, and this is also where you’ll face off against past protagonists.
A new feature called the “Deception Studio” will let you edit characters and missions. By using acquired parts, you can create enemies and give them their own names, so you’ll pretty much get to make your own quest with custom characters and enemies.
For the first time in the series, the protagonist will get to directly attack enemies. So that means she’ll be able to kick enemies into traps, or even stomp on enemies that have already fallen to the ground, just in case the traps weren’t enough.
Decption IV’s expanded version will release in Japan on March 26, 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
