Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition Announced For The Nintendo Switch

21 April 2018

Limited Run Games has announced a Nintendo Switch version of the game. The U.S. Senate committee held a hearing at the time about video game violence led by senators Joe Lieberman and Herb Kohl, where "Night Trap" was often cited along with Midway's "Mortal Kombat".

Now, though, it's barely more than a mild male fantasy rolled into a big ball of poorly-produced FMV cutscenes.

KORG's unique Nintendo Switch edition of the versatile Gadget Digital Audio Workstation comes with 16 bundled synthesisers and drum machines (all emulations based on vintage KORG hardware) and will allow you to cover pretty much any electronic genre you can think of (yes, even old chiptunes). If nothing else, it's worth a playthrough to see how we've all moved on from the basement-dwelling weirdness of the early-to-mid 1990s. The player, as a special agent, must watch "live" surveillance footage of the teens and trigger traps to capture the monsters pursuing them. It ends by telling us that the games will release sometime in 2018 or later. Thankfully, over 25 years later that statement is now void, as the game will be heading to Nintendo Switch this summer. Variety reached out to Screaming Villains to ask why.
