Nintendo Everything: "Fatal Frame Wii U (Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden) will be released in Japan on September 27. We’ve added in the debut trailer captured from today’s presentation."
Yessss! I'm so excited for this. I just hope it is released in the West. It's also great to see the running speed has been improved. That was one thing that frustrated me about the old FF games.
I wish we could get this game on the other platforms. I like the Fatal Frame series.
Then buy a wii u just stop the port begging
There's a big Nintendo logo at the start of the video, so that should be your answer on that one!
just buy a wii u. used or new (i got mine for $150 from a friend hehehe). if you can find the basic edition go for that one, no need to go for the deluxe
Yeah, and we wish the majority of AAA third party games on the Wii U were original games of high quality, instead of crappy ports with delays and cut content. Impossible dreams are impossible; if you want this, get a Wii U.
I'm buying one too to lay next to my ps4. Its definately worth it to have both
Nintendo co-owns the Fatal Frame franchise, so you aren't going to be seeing that anytime soon starchild.
So if port begging is not allowed, maybe people should stop the "bring it to the west" begging
Buy a Wii U, guy. Firstly, it's almost definitely not coming to other platformers. Secondly, it's a system that's most definitely worthy of owning.
Showing me "scary" things isn't scary. Also, last-gen graphics on a "next-gen" system. "But Vantage, graphics don't make a game!". Yeah, but round plates made up of straight edges is so 2005.
It's reassuring that there are still people in this world who can be as positive as you.
When they're actually rendered tiny on screen it's not such a big deal. Everything's polys at the end of the day.
You're sooooooooo right.....there is no such thing as a decorative plate with flat edges......this game must be crap! How dare they not make the plate a perfect circle. Now, please excuse me, I must break all my mother's serving dishes because they aren't circles.
You don't need incredible graphics to create a convincing setting, atmosphere, and sense of tension. Far too many horror games in the past decade have focused too much on looking pretty while forgoing gameplay and horror. I'm personally excited for Fatal Frame 5 because if it's anything like the previous games, it will be both a good game and a scary experience.
Take your graphics whoring back to PC-land.
I said "But Vantage, graphics don't make a game!", I then said "yeah" to show that I agree, graphics don't make a game. I did this to keep slack-jawed turds from calling me a graphic whore.
If you actually felt strongly about graphics not mattering, you wouldn't have used the words "also, last-gen graphics on a "next-gen" system"." You didn't just bash the system by alluding that you think it's not a next-gen system, as shown by your use of quotation marks, you also tried and failed to cover your ass on the matter of not caring overmuch about graphics. A simple "yeah" isn't an agreement so much as a placation tactic, and then you've got the nerve to say that this simple-minded round-about defense was to "keep slack-jawed turds" from calling you out on it? And you actually thought you'd get away with all of that? Come back when you stop caring about how straight or rounded your "plates" are. No one was fooled by your post; you were just trying to toss out a clever bash on both the graphics and the system itself before trying to cover your tracks.
@Vantage - strange world you live in. I take it plates like this don't exist then? http://www.christies.com/lo... Pretty sure you haven't played this game, so saying it isn't scary is a little bit pompous at this point. Also pretty sure TLOU had great graphics, and that was "last gen" too.
It does not look last gen, don't be a dork. You more than likely do not even have a Wii U, troll along.
Wow, this is intense. I hope itll come to the west, its been a while since m last survival horror game. And the graphics look real good, in an updated SH2 way good, gritty and stuff.
Game looks pretty scary and awesome coming from a fan of silent hill 2 and 3
I find the FF series a lot more scarierer than silent hill
I recently got into Fatal frame and you are not lying this games are pretty damn scary.
To be fair, Silent Hill (specially 2) is more psychological than scary. Or I'd say its a different kind of scary altogether.
Wow this looks amazing. Can anyone tell me why fatal frame hasnt been on a playstation since fatal frame one and two? Im so confused. I remember playing ff2 on my ps2
Nintendo co-owns the rights to the franchise so while Koei Tecmo still holds control over how they make the games, they can only be released exclusively on Nintendo console, this has been the case since Fatal Frame 4.
Oh, interesting, I didn't know that. I played the first two on PS2 and always hoped the series would continue.
There is a project zero 3 for the PS2. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Hope it comes to the West, it has a great possibility. Fatal Frame kicks ass.
Get it on PS4 or bust.. Not wasting money on garbage wiiu.
Swing low, Spidey. Hopefully over a freeway. During rush hour. After new years when everyone's drunk.
guess you won't be playing this game then. poor you.
Then bust and your loss ;) sadly. It's not coming to any non-Nintendo platform anytime soon.
Excellent. Hope it comes west soon.
Funny spidey. Im hoping it sells well on wiiu but if not I hope thry make a port to other next gen systems.
@ spider yeah the Wii u is that bad that you want its games on another system. Grow up. A system is only as good as its games so if you want Wii u games your basically admitting you want a u but are refusing because hey it's Nintendo they don't deserve money for making good games.
"hey it's Nintendo they don't deserve money for making good games" If it doesn't come to the West, then yeah they don't.
I really hope it does come to the West. I mean, I can see why Nintendo might be reluctant to bring it over here because the series hasn't had particularly high sales. But I think if this game gets a decent marketing strategy and some hype behind it, then it has the potential to do really well.
no western release news yet so why is this news?
Because this is a AAA game published by Nintendo, and more than likely will release here as well, and I for one am going to pick this up day one.
Except they haven't release Ff4 like fans gave been begging for since release, we had to fight like hell to get last story, xeboblade, and Pandoras tower and those were extremely limited so a lot of people couldn't. If they didn't release 4 what makes you think they'll release 5. I'll buy both day one but its kinda stupid to talk about it outside of Japan until they announce a western release date.
Fatal Frame 4 ("Project Zero" in Japan) never came to the west, why would 5?
The Fatal Frame 2 Wii remake made it over to Europe (though not the US for some reason) so I'd say there's at least a small possibility we might see FF5 make it to the West. /wishfulthinking
Because the Wii U needs all the games it can get, and a great horror franchise would be a boon for it right now? Just saying.
Other Fatal frame games came to the west on Wii, so why would it not? I think it will, Nintendo is kind of making a big deal out of this game. Miyamoto has his hand in this game too, so I think it will be pretty good.
Its not like WIIU has huge lineup of titles, where they are abandoned by third party too , i hope they have it in them to release US and PAL versions.
Nintendo dont fail us and bring that to the WESSSSTTT!!!!!!!!,,,,IS UR DUTYY TO WII U OWNERS IN THE THE WEST
It shouldn't be that hard... just dub in some english and boom! But I know nothing of the actual work that needs to be done... but really can it be that hard? FREE MONEY Nintendo!
To be honest, I don't mind if its only subbed (since it's quicker to bring here). Not sure if the past iterations were dubbed tho.
nintendo just keeps bringing game after game..just really hope this comes to the west would love to play it at least some time next year.
looks great. maybe i have low standards though. i do feel that i may buy a wiiU very soon. if not, hopefully this will come out on other platforms. this game published by nintendo?
Yes, it is published by Nintendo, as they also co-own the franchise. So, it'll remain exclusive to Wii U for a long while, if not forever. I only hope it comes to west. A good game library needs at least one horror game, and this game is one for the grab.
yeah it's not a timed exclusive.. so unless Nintendo sells their co-ownership stake in Fatal Frame, no non-Nintendo console/handheld will ever see another Fatal Frame.
It won't come out on other consoles. Despite belief Nintendo doesn't co-own the entire franchise, but they own rights to all of the Fatal Frame games that they help fund and publish. They helped fund this game, so that means they own rights to it as part of the deal they made.
This game will be perfect for the Wii U, assuming they add in the camera. Which I was a little concerned I didn't see in the trailer. I mean the gamepad is perfectly suited to use as an augmented reality camera.
It's a really quick moment but you can briefly see her using the camera at the end of the trailer (around 2:36). I agree though, it would be so awesome to see the Gamepad being used for the camera!
how did I miss that in the trailer, lol. Thanks for pointing that out though. I mean what would a Fatal Frame game be without the camera anyways? :P
Wow this looks pretty creepy, I like it.
https://twitter.com/KoeiTec... Retweet&Respond! Let they know!
Nice! Hope they bring it over here. Looks pretty sleek!
This is going to look nice next to collection which contains Fatal Frames 1 to 4, 2 Wii Edition, and Spirit Camera. I might import the manga and short movie as well.
