‘Camp Classic’ Night Trap Coming to PS4 and Xbox

Those unlucky enough to have owned or played on SEGA’s ill-fated Mega Drive (or Genesis to our North American friends) peripheral disc-based console the Mega CD (aka SEGA CD) will be all too familiar with infamous 1992 FMV game Night Trap, which was one of a slew of novelty ‘interactive movies’ – which also included Ground Zero: Texas and Mad Dog McCree – released for the short-lived platform. Well, masochists rejoice: Night Trap is getting a 25th Anniversary HD remaster and is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year:

Set in a mansion which, in real-time, is being invaded by aliens, Night Trap gives the player control of a CCTV system – used to observe the bevy of B-movie damsels which, somehow, inhabit this bizarre stately home – and a series of booby traps that must be used to prevent the xenomorphs (rather, fellas with stocking on their heads) from murdering the scantily-clad guests. Nostalgically remembered as a camp classic, Night Trap was interminable, and could only be completed through tedious trial-and-error – jotting down the time and room name of every extraterrestrial that attacks over the game’s 30-minute span – or by using a guide. I opted for the latter which, while still regrettable, was still preferable to the terror of repeated playthroughs. I hated it then, and I’ll probably still hate it when I inevitably pick up a copy of the remaster, because I’m that kind of mug.

Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition is getting a physical – albeit limited – release via Limited Run Games for PS4, plus a digital release on PS4 and Xbox One. Release date and pricing are yet to be announced.
