It looks like Nintendo may have bought Fatal Frame, so this game seems to be a Wii exclusive.
This is indeed the game that will make me fork over my money to the Big N.
I'm a big fan of this series.
Tecmo, Nintendo, and with Suda 51 along the longtime series producer. Nice list of names right there and produced by Nintendo as well ^^
Crazy rumor in the article as well. Sorry if you're a Fatal Frame fan and a Nintendo hater. Rumor is Nintendo bought the Fatal Frame name...
Not a rumor or hate... but i believe you should have take a look at the whole article before. Well because we don't have even half paragraph in here...i will paste one paragraph from IGN (like it should be, following the posting rules...): January 30, 2008 - For fans of the horror genre, there are few games that can stack up to the intensity and mood created in Tecmo's Fatal Frame franchise. Even if you've never played Fatal Frame before, however, there's reason to start paying attention now, as the franchise's fourth incarnation is heading exclusively to Wii. Now that was not too hard huh? And yes i do love Fatal Frame and seems cool to play it with the Wii control :)
Huh? I didn't even submit this? I read the article as well which is where I got that rumor. Oh wait I see you meant on the top. Yea I go to source before I go in the comment section sorry didn't see the teaser, but more people should go read the article before posting anyway so the less here the better chance they'll go to the actual article
To read and then aprove, because this is a really good find but, oh well we have nothing from IGN here (text i mean) while the original article is really rich and long. But i am still happy to see Fatal Frame :) Thx for the news =3
Yes Fatal Frame should be scary as ever ;)
and to whoever is disagree'ing to what do I own this pleasure?
People here tend to disagree on alot of stuff even with stuff like the banana being yellow.
let me put it this way they are morons.
I was at work when I submitted this article... I forgot to put in a paragraph from the article... I'm such a noob...
I never got into them... I tried playing the 1st one. It didn't hold my interest. Then again, Resident Evil, Silent hill and Alone in the Dark have grossly lost my interest too.
I loved Silent Hill 1 and 2 (beat them both many times) got 3 and 4 and both are sitting on my shelf still. Played them for maybe 30 min each.
I loved Resident Evil 1 and 3, tolerated 2... Really dig Code Veronica (again, beat them many, many, many times) Resident Evil 4 comes along... played it until the monster from Lord of the rings came out of the cave and said nope. This is going on the shelf. Haven't touched it since. Garbage game. I should've knew the direction it was going,though. I mean, it had a giant monster fish right before this fight.
Moral of the story... Scary games don't interest me anymore. They're not scary. Teh gameplay usually sucks and suffers from stiff, terrible tank-like controls and overall is just not fun to play. Fatal Frame, I'm sure is no different. Just like Clock Tower.
im not a gfx whore but i wonder are those INGAME or CGI?!
if its ingame then i didnt see this beauty coming... never played the game how good is it ?( regarding what the Preview says i want to hear it from some fatal frame lovers)
graphics do look nice though my money is on CG
Those screens can be in game yep (i am not really sure). The game is really good for me is one of the best (for not to say the best on this genre), you have an upgradeable camera and tape that absorbs the *essence* from the death, and you have to take shoots (photos) of them, so you get pretty scary moments while you are wandering around with the camera and a *the ring* style ghost suddenly appears in front of it (if the camera is zoomed in go figure lol). I do love the series.
K thnx, i think ill keep an eye on this one.
And it does look like CGI XD i put my money on it too
haha, that's for the ps2 of fatal frame 3, expect the wii to be about 2-3 times better.
: ( poor fetal flame.... it will never feel the glory of the next gen graphic on the PS3 and 360..... You know, horror genre games require visual and sound to make them scary, and the wii lacks both.... this is sad indeed.
Actually Wii has that! Not 720 but enough to scare the socks off ya. Should be great to play if you can take it that is
I dont understand how poeple make comments like that. Is it possible to be that ignorant of gaming roots? What exactly were we doing before the ps3 and 360 playing atari? The games were given birth on the pso and ps2 so how exactly were you able to make your way through those games?
RE4 is IMO the best survival horror game to date and guess what it was built from the ground up on the GC soooo are you saying that re-re4, sh 1-4 and so forth were not done properly because they came before ps3 and 360.
Do poeple need such graphicly intesne games that they are willing to pass up a graphically inferior game based solely on the graphics. If you answerd yes then why are you even interested in gaming? Games are not movies and are an interactive experiance. The interaction is the key part. If the most beautiful looking game conceived forgot how to allow the user to interact with it then it would fail as being a game.
I guess some are so stuck in their ways that they enjoy the rut that is graphics. Not saying that graphics are important, but I dont understand how poeple just act like the wii isnt capable of producing any graphical quality. The xbox had and was capable of producing some amazing games graphically wise. Yes its not up to the same standerds of 360 and ps3, but its not like were getting blocky 3-d(n64 and pso) its still capable of some stunning art directions.
As for the game, FF4 should be pretty damn neat. I wouldnt normally give the game a look but with a creepy atmosphere and wii controls it has gained my attention.
It scared people on the PS2 so i have heard......this already creates a HUGE FLAW in your statement.
hell Resident evil 1 on the Gamecube did a pretty good job too.
this is what alot of people say about games being on the Wii, that it will suck because it doesnt deliver " next gen " crap.
These concepts did amazingly well on last gen computers but suddenly they all suck now?
I really do not get this logic.
Gamers, uhmm gamers i do wonder how many of them have a brain that refuses to use the function : shallowness
that really boring one where you scare ghosts off by taking photos? if so then the wii is welcome to it, yawn......
cant wait for this game to go along with alone in the dark and my resident evil games.. 08 will be wii to the top
Honestly, I'm rather disappointed. As a long time Fatal Frame fan, I was really hoping for the next installment to appear on the HD consoles. Fatal Frame is a deeply disturbing and scary game, I just can't picture it with the Nintendo seal. Ah well, looks like Nintendo can't fail these days.
They should at least bring the game to the ps2.
I think capcom should make a direct sequel to Resident Evil 4 for Wii.. Resident evil 4 part 2. :) considering the 4th ported version sold over a million copies on Wii and Chronicles did quite well, Resident Evil has a home on Wii and Capcom should take advantage of it.
Fatal Frame will do well too with Nintendo publishing it and Suda 51 directing it.
