Night Trap gets re-release, complete with physical edition

Night Trap, the infamous, and infamously bad, full-motion video game from 1992, is getting a 25th anniversary re-release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this spring. We are just as surprised as you are.

You can watch the trailer for the upcoming game, complete with a look at the physical packaging, above.

Limited Run Games is handling the physical release, with three different covers. Because why not reference each of the U.S. Sega CD versions of the game?

The last we had heard of Night Trap was during an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign to raise $330,000 to re-release the game on modern consoles back in 2014. Pricing for the new game has not been announced.

There is a Night Trap theme song, and you can download it right now and listen to it and wonder why you have downloaded the song and are now listening to it. Night Trap is being re-released by Screaming Villains, a game developer located in northern Kentucky that says it has at least one other game being released this year.

Night Trap was ultimately ported to a number of platforms after controversy over the game’s violent and “sexual” content led to Sega temporarily pulling it from store shelves. The game was cited as one of the reasons for the creation of the ESRB in 1994.

The re-release has been rated Teen for violence, blood and suggestive themes.

I love that there's companies that are aware of the history of gaming but this was a truly awful game.

Funny that it's now rated Teen yet it was basically pulled due to violence back then.

Will we get Sewer Shark remade next??

The AVGN episode of that game is hilarious. I know of that and this game from watching that web series.

They re-release truly awful movies all the time and people eat that shit up. I don't see why they can't do it with games also.

What the fuck was that? It was like a bad D movie, but you can play it or something? I don't know much about it...

Anybody thinking of getting this should pick up Until Dawn instead.

Re: Night Trap gets re-release, complete with physical edition

I remember the 90's featured a plethora of cheesy full motion video games.

I was a fan even though the controls for most of them sucked. I never played or owned Night Trap, but I saw a lot of the crappy Sega CD footage.

I would love someone to release Mad Dog McCree. It was cheesy as hell, but I liked killing & interacting with real life actors.

Sadly if there was an X1 physical release I'd probably be pushing people in line to get it. Yes, it's an awful game, but geezus the memories and nostalgia win me over every time.

Re: Night Trap gets re-release, complete with physical edition

I have this weird affection for games with FMV. Night Trap, Red Alert, Rebel Assault II, Phantasmagoria, Tex Murphy... was there ever an FMV game with good acting?

If you mean "good" by "absolutely fucking entertaining," any of the Need for Speed games with FMV.

Quantum Break wasn't horrible, but those were more like TV episodes.

It wasn't good acting but The Beast Within (Gabriel Knight 2) was slightly more passable FMV games in terms of acting than most.

Hey, Tex Murphy had great acting!

If you haven't played it already, I highly recommend Contradiction

Love this game. Hope to get the Limited Edition Physical Release once Limited Run Games announces a pre-order date.

They said on their Facebook page that pre-orders might start in a few weeks.

Re: Night Trap gets re-release, complete with physical edition

I played this back in the day...

This game is not good or bad enough to play again. It is in that weird middle ground where it does not even have enough bad stuff to make it fun. Strange release.
