Smile! Fatal Frame Is Now A PS2 Classic

By Spencer . April 9, 2013 . 11:31pm

fatal Tecmo Koei’s horror game series crept back on to PlayStation 3. You can get the original Fatal Frame for $9.99 on the PlayStation Store. Fatal Frame puts you in control of Miku who visits an eerie mansion and finds the Camera Obscura that can defeat ghosts.

 

I hope we’ll see Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly on PS3 as well. Even after a couple of reprints, Fatal Frame II is still hard to get and we missed out on Project Zero 2: Wii Edition which was only released in Japan and Europe.

    Ugh, the dreaded 3rd Night :( I still haven’t beaten the game…
    Whatever you do, don’t stand still!

    Dat cover.

    Anyway, I’m still annoyed that PAL players can’t emulate the first game on Xbox 360… at least the second game works really well (enough that I didn’t even need to get the Wii remake :P). As for PZ1 and PZ3, I have them on PS2, although the first game’s controls are hardly ideal today, with the inverted sticks in camera mode and being unable to change them in the options. I don’t remember if the Xbox version fixed this.

    I didn’t know the second one was a rare find. I have the first two but never finished the first, so I never started the second. Matter of fact, I can see the cover to the first one from where I am currently sitting.

    • malek86

      They are pretty much unrelated, so you could start anyway. And it’s a better game than the first one, although arguably a lot less scary. The third one is a mix of the first two games’ strong points, while also introducing other problems of its own (but it’s my favorite, actually).

      • AndreasStalin

        I wouldn’t say they are totally unrelated. If you have played number three it all comes together pretty well…

        • malek86

          Yeah, but that’s only if you play the third game. The first two games by themselves are pretty much completely unrelated.

  • Seraph

    Ahhhh Fatal Frame. The second game is still the only game that has left me too scared to finish…

    • CirnoLakes

    Since Nintendo mostly owns the series, I’m happy to see a fatal frame on the ps3 even if it is a release of a ps2 game :D. I can’t wait to get scared :3.

    • Ricardo C

      That is really false information. Nintendo just co-owns the games they help develop (Fatal Frame 4, Wii Edition, and Spirit Camera), they dont co-own the series at all. They can go back to other systems if they want :)

      • malek86

        Even so, it seems unlikely that they’ll change platforms now, unless the low sales of Spirit Camera (and presumaly PZ2 too) convince them… but it’s more likely that they’ll either let the series go or develop it with Nintendo again.

        • Ricardo C

          They seem to like Nintendo at the moment so I dont really see them switching to a new platform for the series anytime soon.

          • Charmchar

            Thanks for the information but i agree with Malek86 i don’t see them developing a new Fatal Frame for other consoles anytime soon.

            The next game of the Fatal Frame Series is more then likely coming out on the WIIU, using the gamepad as a camera (As tiring as that may be).

        i think Nintendo owns an portion of the series so any future game will be Nintendo exclusives

      • gryphonofmight

        No they can’t. Nintendo has co ownership of the whole franchise according to the actual copyright information regarding this situation. This port was in the works before Nintendo acquired ownership and was grandfathered in.

    DAT COVER…

    Still torn between getting this, or forbidden siren >.<

    I bought this just for convenience and I truly do love this game, but the Xbox version was much better. I wish they would re-release the directors cuts in some kind of HD collection on all platforms. This is a wonderful series.

  • raulrain

    It´s good to see some love for Fatal Frame, I have the PS2 trilogy, together with my PS2´s silent Hill Trilogy, when you think about it, it would be nice to have a Fatal Frame HD Collection, true horror games that together they make terrific story, but nowdays, we have action shooting games disguised as horror games, but one can dream.

    • ShadowDivz

      Yeah i know. My cousin had this on xbox(or a spin off) and watching him play used to scare the crap out of me.
      Now it’s always shooters that get called horror games.
      In this your a teenage girl armed with a freakin camera. That’s real survival.

      • raulrain

        yeah and fighting for survival against ghosts . . . . . GHOSTS !!! . . . . with a camera, I remember that the first one was the hardest, at least for me, but 2 and 3 have their thing too, and we always have the hard difficulty for the 3 games and the challenge mode, yeah we always remember the good old times with the games we like, I`ll wait for 2 and 3 for the PS3 too

    If this is the final year for the Wii, and when the Pandora’s Tower craze has ended, maybe, just maybe, we might finally see Fatal Frame II Wii Edition on America as the final “Good-Bye.” to the Wii. Or even better, Have a Fatal Frame II on Wii U and release it ONLY in America.

    • Arizato

      As “payback” for Europe getting one game you’re not getting? This happens all the time. There are alot of games that were only released in US and JP that I want to play, but can’t due to region coding. Yet I don’t want others to experience the same thing.

    • cloudfightback

      Don’t be a douche.
      At the end of the day, some games come out in UK that doesn’t come out in USA, and I’m not rubbing it in your face, so when games come out in USA that we don’t get, and trust me, we don’t get much, we simply wait for it, or at least, attempt to do something about it.

  • CirnoLakes

    One of the best survival horror games ever. Period.

    It’s good to see the game get some love.

  • AndreasStalin

    One of my favorite game series actually, I hold specially Crimson Butterfly in high regard, but the other three is also very good (and scary) games. I played through number three and four just at the end of last year. If you haven’t played them there’s no reason not to get number one now for $10.

  • Linhua

    … I loved them all… and I really hope the other two come to PS3 as well.

    … I really liked 3 though for its modern feel.

    … also, Rei was hott.

    Really wish I didn’t pick up the Eu Wii-Rerelease. I really didn’t like it; I think it was mostly because of the motion controls (holding it like a flashlight really lays on the arm dexterity), but I’ve ALWAYS wanted to play this series—
    hell; I’m gonna pick this up. Give the series another chance; love ‘dem yurei!

    • malek86

      I will tell you that the controls in the first game (at least the PS2 version) are not that great. In camera mode, the analog sticks get inverted (you will need to use the left one for aiming and the right one for moving) and you can’t change them in any way. The second and third game are customizable instead.

  • Learii

    i buy it when i get a card wahaha time for a real horror game
