Tecmo Announces TRAPT For The PlayStation(r) 2

Players will take on the role of the seductive Queen Allura as they use skill and strategy to lure enemies into deadly traps in this new unique action game from Tecmo


LOS ANGELES, Calif. May 18, 2005 - At the 2005 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Tecmo® announced its plans to ship its newest unique trap-action game, TRAPTTM, to the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system this September. Taking on the role of femme fetale, Queen Allura, gamers will be challenged to think in their most evil in wicked ways in order to kill their enemies using a combination of gruesome and deadly traps as their weapons of destruction. The announcement of the new unique action game was followed up with a brand new TRAPT trailer exclusively shown at the Tecmo booth, which gave E3 attendees their first glimpse of the sexy but wicked Queen Allura.


Set in old Europe, the player takes on the role of the seductive Queen Allura, who after being framed for her father's murder, is forced to flee the castle to take refuge from those that are out to kill her. Allura, along with her maid Rachel, escape to the Black Forest, where an evil spell from the devil transforms Allura into a trap master, an evil temptress that uses deadly traps to avenge her enemies. Returning to the castle with the devil as her guide and on a mission of vengence, Allura uses her wicked strategy and skill to set up gruesome medieval traps to lure her enemies in and then destroy them.

Boasting equal parts action and strategy, TRAPT for the PlayStation®2 is a unique trap-action game where players will have to think in the most evil and manipulative ways to create the ultimate combination of traps in order to distinguish their enemies. From pre-set traps in the rooms such as blazing fireplaces and falling chandeliers to gruesome and gory traps created by the player like the guillotine and rolling boulder, the player must fully utilize each trap in order to first evade and then annihilate the enemy.

Boasting both a Story Mode and Survival Mode, TRAPT, is a new kind of action game that promises hours of addictive gameplay as players use their wits and skills to create the best combo of traps in order to vanquish the enemy.
