Reasons Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden deserves a western release

Wii U Daily: "Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden was announced for the Wii U a while back, but only for Japan. With the previous Fatal Frame title on Wii releasing only in Japan, there is a good chance we won’t see this game come to west.

Ive been wanting to write a blog post about this. Survival horror is more popular than ever, if nintendo struck a deal to have some of the innumerable shrill voiced scaredy cats (making bank on Youtube) play this game, there's a ton of exposure right there.

Also contrary to popular belief the series has not declined in sales since Nintendo started publishing it. In fact despite the Wii having nearly half the popularity of the PS2 in Japan, Fatal Frame 4's (Wii exclusive) lone Japan sales outsold Fatal Frame 3's (PS2 exclusive) worldwide performance.

Im hoping Nintendo's working on a translation or at least waiting for it to coincide with the Hollywood movie.
