That's not necessary a bad thing , especially if you have been wanting to play a Japanese import. But as much I sometimes, enjoy watching "subtitled" movies. I don't want to read and play "subtitled" video games. In fact you could also say that's a pretty lazy thing to do, and this is coming form Tecmo too:(
And of course this game has "add-ons" for premium traps on the PlayStation Store. But at $3.00-$4.00 a pop, it's just not worth it.
So here is the TRUTH! about Deception IV , unless your a "die-hard" fan of Japanese import games? Your going to simply pass on Deception IV, um it's a possibly a rent IF you desperate to play something. At least until the "good games" come out;)
P.S. I would try and explain the mechanics of Deception IV, but unfortunately it's rather frustrating and extremely hard to do so? So just play the tutorial instead , which is also in Japanese. Because I didn't have a flipping clue as to what was going on, because the entire game in Japanese! So instead I will post a trailer or 2 and possibly some game-play videos provided I can locate some? And IF you can make sense of them? Congratulations! "you win a cardboard cookie or a Bucky beaver badge;) Annihilation Gaming. Their is also a demo on the PS4 store, you should definitively download and play that first. Before you try, on tackling this game. "good luck with that by the way" :P
