PlayStation®3 PlayStation®Vita [Strategy/RPG]

Kagero or Deception is a strategy-RPG with a uniquely passive combat system, the primary goal being to exact your revenge on the unsuspecting by setting deadly traps! The developer, Tecmo, hasn't released a new Kagero title since Trapt - a decade ago! 

Enter Deception IV: Blood Ties! This cult favorite is sure to please those with a diabolical inclination towards complex schemes with huge payoffs, as many creative and iconic traps - from the Iron Maiden to Banana Peels - can be linked together for insane combinations. The title is heavily inspired by Tecmo's 1996 PlayStation game Devil's Deception, so expect to see some distinct similiarities!

Tecmo will also be including a 'share to YouTube' function so you can easily show off your evil genius!

New Love Plus+ is the enhanced version of Konami's wildly popular dating sim; it is a revamp of it's predecessor New Love Plus and addresses many previous technical issues with respect to fan demand. The original development team once again orchestrates the story of boy meets girl, girl and girl with Akari Uchida is serving as senior producer and Mino☆Tarō as the character designer. The game will again feature the voice work of Saori Hayami as Manaka Takane, Sakura Tange as Rinko Kobayakawa, and Yuko Minaguchi as Nene Anegasaki.
