This Friday, the remaster of the classic/infamous full-motion video game Night Trap will be re-released in a limited physical run on August 11 (thanks to developer Screaming Villains & Limited Run Games), while the digital release on PS4 and PC takes place on August 15. Due to the positive feedback of the re-release, its sequel, Night Trap 2, is currently in the very early stages of development as it aims to go into full-speed after the original game’s other remastered ports are finished and released. Another interesting little tid-bit is that the original game director, James Riley, will be heavily involved in the sequel’s development.

Shadowrun is a science fantasy role-playing game, first published in 1989, that is set in a near-future fictional universe where cybernetics, crime, magic and fantasy creatures co-exist. The original game spawned a diverse franchise that includes a collectible card game, two miniature-based wargames, multiple video games, a series of novels and music.

One game in particular for the system, Ubisoft’s ZombiU, is actually a sequel to a game released 26 years, in fact, many people don’t even realize that it’s even a sequel at all. At first is may seem that the oddly-spelled title was a reference to Nintendo’s console — as with their history of adding “Super” in many Super Nintendo games, “64” at the end of Nintendo 64 titles, “DS” or “3DS” in some form on Nintendo DS games, and “Wii” to many Wii titles — but it’s actually a reference to its predecessor, entitled Zombi.
It appears that YouTuber DSimphony has uncovered one of the biggest secrets in the history of video games. According to this video, it seems that gaming companies Sega and Square Enix attempted to mask this over and let this slip past us. Unfortunately for them, gamers are an intelligent and resourceful group of people with extraordinary resources.
