Tecmo's Deception series makes a comeback on Vita

Tecmo has a unique series of games where players set traps called Deception in the West or Kagero in Japan. We haven’t seen a new Deception game since Trapt which came out almost a decade ago. During Sony’s press conference a logo for Kagero: Darkside Princess was shown as an upcoming PlayStation Vita game (Kagero: Darkside Princess, PS Vita, PS3)

It's unlikely, but I would love to see this get a western release.

Deception is such a cool and fairly unique series.

Actually there is a very good chance the game will have a western release as all of the past Deception games have been localized.

The last being Trapt for the PS2 way back in 2005. So the series has been on hiatus for the last 8 years, so it was surprising to hear last night that the series is making a comeback.

These games were stupid fun albiet a tad twisted.

Yeah, I just realized this last night when I was looking over a list of all of the Deception games and realized I had actually played every one of them. It's rather surprising, actually.

There is definitely a sadistic joy in setting up a crazy trap combo and just watching it all work out perfectly.

All four Deception games got localize by Tecmo. So i'm sure this one will get a western release.

WOW, I loved the Deception series way back in the day.

That is a pretty cool title to be coming to the Vita.

This one coming to PS3 also -> http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/k... & I seriously surprised in a good way about this :D I loved the first game I play it for hundreds of hours trying to upgrade all the traps & testing everything trying to find what work best vs all those different kind of intruders it was unbelievable fun back in the PS1 days although the graphics were horrible :D & I loved how dark it was the atmosphere inside the castle the music everything create the right atmosphere to go for hunting & feed the pure souls to the demons! hahahahahahah :P

Can't w8 to see more of this & I really hope that it will be so dark & twisted as the first one or more & I hope we will have diversity & freedom on how we can build our castle, I want the option to expand it, create hallways, rooms & I want a ton of traps & a ton of upgrades for those traps! bring it to EU already I need to play this ^__^

Only played Kagero 2 but I absolutely loved it!

YES! YES!! YES!!! Please revive the old classic titles. This is one of the titles that I had enjoyed. I remembered playing the Japanese Kagero version before the English Deception. This will be definitely on my list. Just announce the localization and you'll make me one happy fella. :D
