Girls Gone Grainy – Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition Release Date Announced

25 years later, Night Trap offers more fun than you can shake a senate hearing at

Night Trap

Publisher Limited Run Games today announced that preorders  for Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition will be opening on August 11, 2017.

The game will be made available in two waves, with the first wave kicking off at 10am EST, and the second wave following at 6pm EST. The standard edition of the game will be limited to 5,000 copies, and the collector’s edition SKU will be limited to 3,000 copies.

The Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition Collector’s Edition will include the following items:

  • Region free Night Trap physical disc for the PlayStation 4 featuring a full-color manual, large fold-out poster, and reversible cover art.
  •  Cassette tape featuring the infamous Night Trap theme song.
  • A 4-inch custom embroidered Special Control Attack Team patch on black ballistic fiber.
  • An individually numbered shrink-wrapped box specially tooled and tailored to be a throwback to the original red box Sega CD release of Night Trap.

 

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition is an enhanced port of the cult-classic full motion video game originally developed by Digital Pictures. The game caused quite a stir in the media due to its depictions of violence and scantly-clad women. Eventually, the game went on to become the focus of congressional senate hearings on video game violence alongside titles such as Mortal Kombat and Splatterhouse, ultimately leading to the establishment of the ESRB.

      The price hasn’t been announced just yet. Limited Run Games is doing the physical release which will be limited to 8,000 pieces. However, the game is being released on the PS4 and Xbox One digitally, so if you miss out you can still enjoy all of the game’s delicious campiness that way.
