Night Trap creator planning re-release for current platforms


Full-motion video game pioneer James Riley is seeking a re-release of the infamous Sega CD launch title Night Trap for modern platforms, CVG reports.

"I do plan to re-release Night Trap and have been talking with a number of interested parties to do so," Riley revealed in a comment at the game's closed-access Facebook fan page. "However, the specific platform(s) have not been confirmed (including online) and I will let you know once we have a definite plan and release schedule."

Riley continued: "Night Trap will come back, in better resolution and game play than before, we just want to be sure it's the best strategy for all involved."

Released alongside the 16-bit Sega CD add-on in 1992, Night Trap is an interactive B-movie that challenges players to switch between multiple security camera feeds to capture vampiric creatures stalking a slumber party. Despite featuring little in the way of objectionable content, Night Trap caused a stir in the U.S. Senate soon after its release, resulting in the game's temporary removal from store shelves and the introduction of a content ratings system for video games.
