Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition Will Trigger SJWs This Spring On PS4, Xbox One
Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition 1
(Last Updated On: April 25, 2017)

A remastered 25th anniversary edition of Sega’s highly controversial Night Trap will be re-released with physical copies on the PlayStation 4 this spring thanks to publisher Limited Run Games, and a digital version of the title on Xbox One.

They announced over on Twitter that the classic FMV game will be available for gamers to experience for the first time on the PS4.

This was one of the games that had politicians, moral busybodies and the Christian Right in an absolute tizzy.

Back in the day the original Social Justice Warriors – consisting of parent groups, mothers against violence, teachers, Senators and Congressmen – absolutely hated the Sega CD title, causing it to have a short lived life on the market due to all the controversy.

Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition

Well now the game has a chance to shine like it never had a chance to shine before, and I don’t know if this was the best time to attempt to make it shine. For those of you who have been living in the wilderness away from the internet for the past five or so years, the recent surge in SJW activity has come from the authoritarian Left. The extremist now want to coddle and protect women from all the harms of reality, and so they’ve been on a censorship and banning spree, especially in the realm of games, getting things like GTA V pulled from store shelves in Australia, and removing lots of “problematic” content – especially from games originating in Asia – from titles like Blade & Soul, Tokyo Mirage Sessions: #FE, Fatal Frame and Fire Emblem: Fates to name but a few.

So will Night Trap still contain all the “controversial” content that it had back in the early 1990s? Well, take a look at the trailer below and judge for yourself.

Yes, the game is extremely cheesy, and yet this was cause for concern. Not only cause for concern, but back in the early 1990s claims of “sexism” and “ultra-violence” were used during a Congressional hearing about mature content in video games.

Back then the Puritan Conservatives were the real villains of gaming, and these days it’s the Regressive Liberals that are attacking gaming. Crazy times.

The only good thing about games back in the day is that games media were actually filled with real gamers, and they cared about the hobby and the industry. They did what they could to help grow gaming as a culture, and defended the creative freedoms of the industry. These days, the games press are usually the first to call for censorship and are usually at the forefront to defend games being censored for the “greater good”. They especially hate Japanese games that refuse to bow to their SJW demands.

Anyway, you can look for the physical release of Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition to launch on PS4 this spring in all its remastered glory, and the digital version to launch on Xbox One.

    Always wanted to play this and never got around to it. Didn’t own any SEGA consoles. More games like this would be nice, actually. Control over a ton of traps and freedom to use them in various situations. Would be good for laughs.

    I think it’s not that SJWs hate Japanese games that don’t bow to their demands, it’s just easy to attack Japanese games because the devs rarely fight back. It also shows how racist they are when they attack people from other countries to push their agenda. They can make shit up with near-impunity.

    The West often spins a lot of myths about Japan being “extremely patriarchal” and “treating their women like shit”. Even the game college I studied at had lecturers trying to push that bullshit without citing any sources. They’ve probably never even talked to a Japanese woman before. If they did, like I have, they’d know the reality is completely different.

    Well, they’re so full of shit, even if they knew the reality, they’d push their bullshit anyway.

    Nice new interface, quality of the video looks better than it did on the Sega CD. Wonder how they managed that? Were the originals well preserved?

    Beyond that though, it really isn’t that great of a game. If this were coming out at $19.99 it would be a good price for people who may want to relive the controversy, anything higher is a red flag to stay away.

  • MLGBob26

    I saw a let’s play of this, the content isn’t bad or offensive it’s just really dumb and cheesy.

  • Fear Me I Am Free

    I don’t see this coming out and not being censored.

    • It’s so tame compared to today’s standards, but you’re right… it’ll probably get censored from top to bottom.

  • Laytonaster

    This looks like if “Big Brother” was a prank show instead. Damn, and I thought people back then were sensitive.

  • John27

    I’ll take Jack Thompson over Anita Skankeesian any day. At least he had the intellectual honesty to not pretend he liked videogames while attacking them.

    • Lucas Prilliman

      But still, Jack Thompson and Anita $arkeesian are the villains of the video games community.

  • Raging Papist

    Kinda makes me wish I had a console. Only kinda.

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      I think its getting a PC version as well.

  • Alistair

    I wonder what rating this will get by PEGI after 25 years it was a BBFC 15.

    And I believe the ESRB was born from night-trap. it made the UK papers too.

    And it’s from sega so it safe to say this won’t be censored.

    edit: hmm interesting ESRB give it a T rating can’t be that bad. As it was tame so it be a PEGI 16 then.

  • fenshing

    I’m a Christian conservative and I loved Night Trap back then and I can’t wait to play it again.

    Also the 1993 Senate hearing that attacked Night Trap and other games was chaired by two Jewish Democrats, Joe Lieberman and Herb Kohl. Both pretty far from Christian conservatives. Just sayin!

    • Fear Me I Am Free

      Yeah, but the religious right was the outrage behind alot of controversies in the 90s. Now it’s flipped. SJWs will be the ones who attack it most likely.

    • Disqusted

      Didn’t know that. Interesting. Perhaps it was an attempt to create and stir false controversy, influencing public moral mindset, etc?
