Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition Heads to Switch in Summer 2018

Screaming Villains has announced a Nintendo Switch port for Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition.

The game will launch for the hybrid console sometime this summer, via the eShop. Limited Run Games also confirmed they have a physical version of the game planned for Switch, in limited quantities.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

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 with online functionality 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.

Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition is currently available for Windows PC and PlayStation 4. The Xbox One version of the game is still planned, but has no release window. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here.
