Tecmo Koei Games, in conjunction with Nintendo, announced today via Famtisu that will be bringing the next entry in the critically acclaimed Fatal Frame franchise (Known as Project Zero in Europe and just Zero in Japan) exclusively to Wii U.
And I'm crapping my pants.
Time to get a Wii U
I think it's already a good time to get a Wii U. Definitely try out ZombiU if you get one!
Wow! Great catch by Nintendo! Makes the Wii U really attractive. Fatal Frame 2 is my favorite horror game ever! I hope it does well and an English version gets released as well. Horror games have been sadly on the decline for the last whole generation.
There have been several reason to already have a Wii U by now
@Qrphe More reasons on the way.
Have a Wii U and this is awesome news. Just one more game to add to the Wii U's Solid line up. I can't wait for X, SSB, Mario Kart 8, and now Fatal Frame.
Now I will seriously consider getting a Wii U...I loved FF games! Lest hope Evil within fills the gap until then.
Hopefully they release the game in North America. They made one for the Wii which unfortunately Nintendo decided not to release over here. I am going to get a Wii U regardless for the other fantastic games, but, I would snap this up in a heartbeat as well.
A Wii Who??
Dream. Come. F***in. True. I cant wait to see the scares in hd, and on wii u. This better make it outside of japan. Maybe now that xenoblade sold well and Iwata is president of NOA it will make it.
I yelled a big yes at my house. This is amazing news!
Agreed. This was me after hearing the news: http://egotvonline.com/wp-c...
HD Fatal Frame... holy crap.
This should help sales a bit
Yeah this is the kind of game to push me towards a WiiU. Give me a new Metroid too and I'm going to have to pick one up!
OMGGGGGGGGG!!!!!! Thank you based Nintendo!
Nice, i'm forward to it ;)
"Oh look, a LOL_WUT comment, I'm not going to bother reading what he wrote, just going to press the disagree button." When did you win this reputation, dude? Your comment it's not even negative xD
Read most of his comments on Nintendo articles. He trolls them non stop. On topic: This is great news. Can't wait to see how they use the gamepad.
The general consensus, from what i have seen, is that LOL_WUT is not really someone fond of Nintendo, so people probably see this comment as a mockery.
They see my signature (wink face) and they automatically think its mockery but thats not the case i'm actually praising them. The disagrees usually come from the same group of people so I've gotten used to it. ;)
Disagree-bots mobilization is a success!
i wanna come vouch in your support but im scared to make any of ur enemies my enemies >.>
This guy is flip floping , they are not even funny anymore.
The reason you're getting disagrees is because you rarely have anything nice to say about Nintendo. And besides, that pedo face thing turns many peoples stomachs. There was a case recently in the papers with a pedophile that left a little wink like that on all his posts online. Ughh, makes your skin crawl. Not saying you're a pedo or anything, but it looks a bit off-putting when you taker that into account. On topic - Can't wait, love the Fatal Frame games.
Didnt see this coming, cant wait to hear more of it!!!!
"Didn't see this coming", those words played through my head all throughout my playthroughs of the previous games. Wii U system seller for me.
@[email protected] That's Awesome!
Oh yeah! I can't wait to get my hands on this one.
Highly agree. Now all they need to do is announce it for the West. Its hard not to get excited but we never got FF4 :( I'd buy this in a heartbeat though. Hope its as good and scary as 2
This is AWESOME!! I can really see this game making great use of the game-pad. So many great horror games coming up lately. :D
Of course it's exclusive to WiiU (or a Nintendo system). The company owns some of the stock of the franchise. IN any event, great news regardless! Not just a new game for WiiU, but a FATAL FRAME title!
Crossing my fingers for localization as well. :)
>owning stock of an IP wut
http://www.joystiq.com/2012... Worded wrong, message clear. They co-own the franchise.
Very true ... first HD Fatal Frame as well. I hope it turns out great. As multi console owner ... I personally just want the game regardless where it comes out.
This game will sell a good 500,000 - 700,000 copies.
Wouldnt count on it, sadly. The best selling game in the series sold around 200k, and that was on ps2. I think its insane that they can make a profit on such small sales. Although its worth mentioning that the games that did release on nintendo platforms sold better in the regions they released in than the ps2/xbox games. This is one mature series Nintendo promotes fairly well.
Tecmo koei isn't the type of to go through long, expensive development cycles. They put in minimal effort to visuals and A.I.
@elninels I guess, but the games look just as good as other survival horror games. Theyre also well made technically, with the exception of 4 which of course is to be expected from grasshopper.
Dude, all the games in the franchise combined have barely sold half a million.
who cares, we're getting it
Dream a little dream my friend I love Fatal Frame saga but we both know that those figures are impossible on wii U
Never actually played a Fatal Frame game. May have to check this one out depending on what other games it comes out near. This is great news though as this fills a genre on the Wii U. The number of great Wii U games that release in the future grows all the time. I'm so happy I already own one!
Fatal Frame is kind of like The Ring as far as scares concerned. Very atmospheric. I have yet to play one as well, but a friend of mine showed me a couple of Let's Plays and it was awesome to watch.
i can never finish a fatal frame game... the jump scares are typical... but its the atmosphere, eerie environments... occasional ghosts sightings are just too much for me... lol...
you should try all of them, well 3ds version is spin-off :) but if you enjoy survival horror games, those are one of the best, including 4 on Wii with english patch
Interested to see how it sells. WiiU people have to vote with their wallets!!! Bayonetta 2 will be an interesting experiment for many publishers.
Localize this one, Nintendo of America. Please.
Bet this would sell much better in the U.S. than in Japan.
"Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly was never localized in North America" I'm looking at my copy right now
I know, must be an error on the journalist part. This was also on xbox.
The author probably meant Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, which did not get released (unfortunately), but he messed up with the names. Half-right?
i think they meant the wii version of fatal frame 2 was not localised for NA
Theres a remake on wii, which was published in Europe and Japan but not America. Thats what hes referring to.
Yeah, that's precisely what I was thinking.
I think he means for the Wii.
I saw this and my heart skipped a beat. I also may have peed a little. Heck yeah!
Thats what im talking about. Good work nintendo, catching up pretty rapidly are we?
It's time to remaster FFIV for the West, Nintendo.
They did that on the original DS.
And the PSP. Well, Square did.
Great start Nintendo! Keep getting those various niche 3rd party exclusives and eventually it will accumulate into a nice amount of system sales. They need to do a lot more of this kind of thing.
This is fantastic news! I'd love to see an HD Collection for the Wii U in all territories with all four games on it. :) I'd pay $60 for that! Heck, I'd pay $60 for any single one of them in HD. Lol. I hope we see more at E3.
I bet they'll make use of the gamepad acting as the camera and having the user raise the pad up to the screen and the pad screen revealing the supernatural. Can't Wait!
Sounds like I can't get this game then because I don't want to risk breaking my gamepad from a jump scare. Because you can't just buy a new one if you break it.
I always thought fatal frame would've been perfect for the gamepad.
Well done Nintendo, definitely a cult game and seeing it move from a Sony platform to Nintendo could trigger some game envy and create sales...this is just the first step in the right direction, now let's get more ps1, ps2 era games on the WiiU and you'll see a surge of sales in the name of nostalgia. It was already a smart move to get Bayonetta 2 to release on the WiiU.
Fatal Frame came on Wii with IV, 1 and 2 remake and as well as 3DS spinoff
wow, I clearly talking out of my ass on that one lol, thanks for the info :)
