The Grudge Gets A Wii Game

By Spencer . April 10, 2009 . 2:54pm

image Horror movie Ju-on, known overseas as the Grudge, is coming to the Wii. AQ Interactive is publishing Kyoufu Taikan Ju-On (loosely Feel Fear: Ju-On) which is based on the film. Players investigate the haunted mansion using the Wii remote as a flashlight — sort of like Lit.

 

In the game’s official blog Mr. Hiratsuka, the public relations manager, explains the concept of the game is to make players feel scared and to capture the horror experience. Watch out when accessing the main page! Hiratsuka warns people with a weak heart to be careful since the front page has a ghastly kid pop up.

 

Famitsu has screenshots of Ju-on, but they don’t explain how the game works with two players. What kind of multiplayer mode can a horror / adventure game have? We’ll find out when Ju-on comes out in Japan this summer.

    Hopefully this and Saw will turn out decent.

    Didn’t Obscure 2 (for the PS2 and later Wii) have a multiplayer mode? Co-op or something.

    Wait a minute.. if this gets the green light to be published and distributed in the UK/EU, I’m really gonna get annoyed that we’re not getting Fatal Frame for the Wii (which I really REALLY want).

    • MadMirko

      Fatal Frame is going to be released in Europe, don’t worry.

        Oh fudge… I just realized, I’m here in the EU but I’ve got a US Wii. Blast!! Foiled again!!

          Nah, you’ll be fine.

          Google the wonders of the Wii Homebrew Channel and Gecko OS, which allow you to play (original!) games from any region on your Wii. If you are already on Wii firmware V4 and haven’t got the Homebrew Channel yet, just wait a little longer, because new solutions to install it on V4 are on the way (you can’t, currently).

          It’s really easy, keep an eye on http://www.wiibrew.org

            Much obliged for the info! That’ll do wonders for me without having to import every darn time I want something new to play (which isn’t very often because it sure as hooey ain’t cheap).

            I normally always end up getting the latest firmware, but I’ll keep an eye and see how things work out with that stuff.

            Thanks again!

    feelplus (of Lost Odyssey fame) is making it btw. Sounds cool, but it seems like Wii’s suddenly getting a lot of horror titles?

  • Wishy
