Rising Star Games Cursing Europe With Ju-On

By Spencer . May 18, 2009 . 8:10am

imageRising Star Games has an announcement to make at London’s MCM Expo this weekend and sent out a video to tease it. The clip has starts with a scream and has staffers (?) running in terror while holding a Wii remote.


Hmm… a horror game for Wii and I’m certain we’ve seen that creepy face at the end before.  The pending announcement is an international version of Kyoufu Taikan Ju-On (loosely Feel Fear: Ju-On). Seeing Rising Star Games pick up Ju-On isn’t too strange either. The publisher is only a few degrees apart from AQ Interactive who is publishing the game for Japan. Rising Star Games is owned by Marvelous, that has a co-publishing agreement with Xseed which is owned by AQ Interactive. See?


I suppose we can count on an announcement from Xseed about a North American version of Ju-On then?



If you’re planning to go to the London Games Expo this weekend Rygar and Muramasa: The Demon Blade will be on display for attendees to play.

    The amount of Rising Star published games I own is steadily increasing, and it seems they’ll try to keep that up. Good job, guys.

    Yuusha 30 for europe pleaseeeeeeee :)

    • It’s been pretty much confirmed for Europe. Rising Star Games said they have a title called Hero for 30sec in development and I think we can figure out what that is!

  • Anone

    i desperately need Hayarigami PSP series to have english releases >.<

  • squall3031

    I think these people in the video exaggerated too much.

  • Malek86

    If it doesn’t suck gameplay-wise, I’ll be getting it.

    I just hope Rising Star will be making a decent conversion. Why is Baroque in 50hz? The NTSC version had 480p.

    • lostinblue

      Gah! I have it in pal, if I knew I would have imported.

      Little King Story in europe is also 50 Hz only and no progressive scan, hence I’mm wainting for the US version to see if it fixes that.

  • Kevin

    Is this Fatal Frame 4 with a name change?

    • No, it’s a game based off of the Ju-On/Grudge series of movies.

  • Lucian (GER)


    The Game was removed from the release list of 2009.
