Night Trap, the infamous full-motion video game from the early ’90s, is being re-released for its 25th anniversary celebrations. The game will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this spring. A physical version will also be available on PlayStation 4.

If you’re trying to figure out why Night Trap is being released again after all these years, we suggest you check out the announcement trailer above. It won’t answer your question, but maybe you’ll get a good laugh out of it.

In Night Trap, you’ll use an intricate system of cameras and traps to monitor and help a group of five teenage girls as they try to survive a vampire attack on their house.

Believe it or not, but this game was very controversial back in 1993, due to its violent and sexual content. It is actually cited as one of the reasons the ESRB was created in 1994, alongside with the original Mortal Kombat and DOOM.

Back in the day, Night Trap earn a MA-17 rating for “Realistic Violence”. The re-release was rated Teen (ages 13+) for violence, blood and suggestive themes. How times have changed…
