Due out on March 26 in Japan, the game is an upgraded version of Deception IV: Blood Ties adding new elements such as new heroine Valgyrie, an 100-quest “Quest Mode,” new traps, and an edit function called “Deception Studio.” The new protagonist is described as the “nightmare princess” humans see in their dreams.
