Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition Comes To Switch On August 24

Ah, Night Trap, how I remember thee! I bought this game alongside my Sega CD back in the day and it was something “special”. I actually somewhat enjoyed the game back then, but it definitely lacks in the gameplay and acting department. Still, it represents a nice slice of video game history back when Sega thought the future of games might be interactive movies.

Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop on August 24. This marks the first time the game will grace a Nintendo console. For all of its controversy back in the day (early ’90s), the game only garners a Teen rating when compared to today’s standards!




Originally developed by Digital Pictures in 1987 and released in 1992, Night Trap has been completely rebuilt, bringing it to a level of video quality never before seen. Night Trap tells the story of five teenage girls spending the weekend at the Martin home. As a member of the Special Control Attack Team, your job is to monitor the home and protect the girls using an intricate system of cameras and traps as it is being invaded by vampires.

Night Trap – 25th Anniversary Edition also includes new features such as deleted scenes, two documentaries, the all-new Theater that allows you to watch all story-related videos uninterrupted, a new mode called Survivor that will test your skills at trapping intruders and behind the scenes production images. For the first time ever, the unreleased prototype Scene Of The Crime will be fully playable and included with Night Trap – 25th Anniversary Edition.
