Sega Video Game “Night Trap” Set to Return for 25th Anniversary

Sega Video Game “Night Trap” Set to Return for 25th Anniversary

When Night Trap was released in 1992 on Sega CD, its live-action gameplay, violence and overall sexiness caused gamers to flock to stores to buy it and parents everywhere to condemn it. 25 years later, the game that required Senate hearings and caused the creation of the ESRB video game rating board, is returning on PS4, Xbox and PC.

There’s a reason Sega didn’t pursue much in the way of live-action video games afterward. However, the novelty of live-action scenes in the game and the simple puzzles that are solved by spying on the residents of the trap house via “live feeds” made for interesting retro gameplay that’s definitely worth another pass in our modern gaming age. Most of all, Night Trap’s rerelease is an interesting opportunity to see just how damn ridiculous it is for Senators – even to this day – to blame societal violence on video games.
