The West is ready for more Fatal Frame, but will it get it?
It should come to the west first.
Whatever gets it to the damn west. Screw nintendo for not bringing this game over...
Is it Nintendo's decision to bring it over or Tecmo Koei? I guess they might think it won't sell well but the other Fatal Frame games did fine in the west. Also it has skimpy outfits so SJW might cause controversy. Those are the only reasons I can think of for it not being brought over.
I'm positive its nintendo's decision. They published the last 3 games. I at least respected their decision with FF4 because it was buggy and Grasshopper demanded more money to fix it, as well as their decision with FF2 since it was way past the wii's lifespan and wouldn't sell well but there is zero reason to not bring over FF5. Even if they barely make their money back, it'll be worth it because nintendo needs to show their fans that they appreciate them. Hell, if they don't want it let xseed publish it. All of the games performed well outside of japan, except for 3. It did like 8k lifetime or someting awful like that and many blame it as the reason Nintendo wont bring the others over. The real kicker is that this series has the potential to be top tier in the genre. Dreadout, a fan game which is basically a rip off of the FF formula, was a huge indie hit because of the youtube exposure it got.
It should arrive as a downloadable title and without dubbing (subtitles), just to satisfy Fatal Frame fans, so Nintendo can't complain about losses that much. I have never tried a game of the series before and V looks very cool.
I'm seeing that the author of this piece isn't very well informed. And let's put it simple. While Koei Tecmo owns the IP as a whole, Nintendo also got the rights of any Fatal Frame game after the 4th entry not long ago. So, in the end, the fate of the series in the West lies on Nintendo's hands.
I miss the "Fatal Frame" days ~ i want these days to come back alongside with the whole Fatal Frame community .. but it seems isn't possible considiring Nintendo still co-own the IP D:
that is a dumb question but it depends on those idiots at Nintendo...
I'd definitely like to see a FF game on the PS4/XB1! But if not, I definitely welcome Siren though as that game goes neck and neck with Japanese horror and Siren was/is awesome. I read a while back it was coming to PS4, but is been off the radar since. UPDATE...Oops...nevermind I just saw an article saying that it was a "mistake" about Siren coming to PS4..sad, as I really would love to see that.
im confused, I thought Nintendo own the series
co-own along with Tecmo KOEI
Honestly I think the more important question is Can Fatal Frame come to PS4 and Xbox One? It sounds like Nintendo have got a very controlling relationship over the IP and seem to have it on permanent license without Tecmo ever selling ownership.
Yes. Just like Bayonetta 2.
This should've remained a multi platform game because all Nintendo is doing is costing them money. If Nintendo made a special version using the Wii-U Controller then it would still make the best experience on the Nintendo Wii U regardless if it was released here or not. It didn't need full exclusive rights if they weren't even going to fully utilize the rights and also localize the game like when FF was on Xbox & Playstation.
Fatal Frame V on Wii U uses the Wii U Gamepad
I think I said that.... but I don't think you read
There's truly some Nintendo fanboys sneaking on this article to downvote comments that want this to happen for no reason , YOU NINTENDO FANBOYS ARE GETTING ON MY NERVE
Ignore them. Let them downvote. It's obvious when they do. I mean, they should be siding with us because even though the game is on their console... it's region locked so only JP console owners can play it. I don't know about you or any of these fanboys but I rather have a game I love on a console I hate than not be able to play it at all (Because all other new consoles have no region lock)
You're a blind fanboy though.
LOL yeah, I'm a fanboy of video games. I perfer a Playstation but I own everything so I have real views on everything. Get out of here with that bullshit @nevin1
Since I still don't have Fatal Frame V in my hands and there is a blasted region lock on my Wii U, then for I wish. But Nintendo owns it, so I'm waiting here forever, just like Mayu in the end of Fatal Frame II - Bad Ending.
