While past games of the series took place in Japanese mansions, this time around, there will be plenty of open areas, and spiritual places that will test your courage.
This looks stunning. Ive just started the series, on the first one on Xbox. Looking ahead it seems I can only play number 3 on PS2, but I cant find anything about 4 in the UK. I understand its Wii only but was it ever released in the UK? If not is the Wii region free? If so what about language options? If anyone can help id greatly appreciate it!
Sadly, Fatal Frame 4 was never released in the West. And the Wii isn't region-free. But a while ago some fans made a translation patch for FF4 so you can play the game with English subtitles on a Wii from any region. There's more info on the patch here: http://www.fatalframe4.net/ I played the game with the patch and it was really professionally done.
My Wii is modded and can play "backups" so I wonder if that would make it region free? Edit: I just checked the link, am I right in thinking this will allow me to play Fatal Frame 4 on my PAL Wii with no need for homebrew? If so that's great, as my modded Wii is a bit of a mess and I may just restore it to factory for this.
Yep, you just need the game and the patch to play it on a US or PAL wii. No need for homebrew.
..and no Western release.
Stop the pessimism :'(
It is reverse psychology. Tell Nintendo that you don't expect or want a Western release and they'll bring it over here just to spite us!
Wow I'm a big fan of this game and I'm very happy that Tecmo will release another Fatal Frame game.. I'm excited already for this one. And oh the protagonist looks so hot!!
I want this localized. Please!
Imagine if they release the new game with Fatal Frame 4 HD edition, just like Bayonetta edition. <3
Oh my god, that would be day one for me.. oh well its still gonna be day one anyway ;)
One more reason to get a WiiU...if this game got localized.
And sadly it's one more reason as to why to avoid the WiiU if games like this don't get localized.
Fatal frame 2 was based in a village. Not just a mansion.
i want this on ps4 dam it
Won't happen. Nintendo owns partial rights to all the Fatal Frame games they help fund, develop, and publish. That means, unless Nintendo decides to put it on PS4, you won't see it. This also includes: Fatal Frame 4 Fatal Frame 2: Wii Edition Spirit Camera (This one is actually a special case. Nintendo completely owns %100 of this game) Tecmo could still port over the first three though. You could also see a new game on PS4 if Sony decided to fund and develop it.
And that's what pisses me off , the franchise is officially Co-owned by Nintendo , its like we are forced to live that way with choices , on the bright side the Wii U controller fits the game ( VITA as Controller for PS4 works too ) but the dark side that you wont smell it outside Japan add to that the Wii U is region locked which makes things even worse and worse , if the game were developed to be a multiplatform it would have been localized immediately with no region lock whatsoever but NOPE , Nintendo stands as an obstacle to epic games like Fatal Frame .. Thanks but no thanks Nintendo
