If you weren't able to get your hands on one of the 5,000 copies of the campy horror game, Night Trap, for the PS4 last August, fear not! Limited Run Games announced on Friday that it will be releasing the cult classic once again, this time for the Nintendo Switch.

Night Watch was a full motion video (FMV) game for the Sega CD released in 1992. The game's premise is that a bunch of scantily clad co-eds must defend themselves from a band of marauding vampires. You play as a special agent who must remotely watch the house's surveillance feeds and spring traps on the blood-sucking interlopers.

Laughably campy by today's standards, Night Trap caused quite the stir back in the '90s. It was often uttered in the same breath as the other moral panic of the day, Mortal Kombat. If you want to see what all the hubbub is about, Night Trap is slated for release this summer.
