    Cool. We finally get to learn some details about the game.

  • flameraver64

    Pretty excited for this actually, some HD horror goodness. Doubt it comes to the US though =/

    • TheRealMalek

      Nintendo and Koei Tecmo has been doing a lot for gamers outside japan, so i’m thinking there is a small hope (even if Fatal frame on 3ds bombed)

      • landlock

        Since FFIV was announced for Europe and then cancelled and the FF2 remake was release here. It should make it to Europe at least.

        Not so sure about America though.

      • Kaetsu

        Fatal Frame 3DS doesn’t count. It wasn’t really a horror game. It was just a gimmick.

    • Rohan Viajar

      wait.. why do you doubt it comes to the US?
      Practically all Fatal Frame games have been localized to the US.

      • Justin Graham

        Fatal Frame IV was never localized and Fatal Frame II’s Wii remake was only released in Japan and Europe.

        • Rohan Viajar

          oh really?
          I thought it was.

          my bad.

          • DizzyGear

            IV does has a fan translation.

          • Justin Graham

            Fan translation is not the same thing as an officially supported localization and commercial release.

  • noctem13

    hoping for some gameplay.

  • Leon Magnus

    Super Hype! This will be the game that’ll make me buy a WiiU!

  • Cheesy12

    Tecmo has been on a role localizing games, especially niche games, and Nintendo has been helping publish stuff for people, I’m almost confident this game will make its way to us at some point.

    • Kaetsu

      Tecmo and Nintendo have gotten really friendly lately with games like Hyrule Warriors so I think you’ll see this one get localized.

      • lyhthegreat .

        yep,this means theres still hope!!

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery
    • Hexodious

      For some random fuckin’ reason I imagine a butterfly fight between this one and Philemon’s Golden Butterfly Mode. (Persona)

  • Color me excited! I’m in dire of a brand new horror game. I’ve just set a reminder, and alerted the guys over at Operation Zero.

  • D-Omen


  • James Enk

    i hope they show us a bit of gameplay

    • lyhthegreat .

      anything is fine..just make sure get this game localized!!

  • DizzyGear

    Maybe a tad offtopic but ive always wondered this. Why did they rename the games to Fatal Frame in NA while keeping the original name Project Zero in the EU?

    • landlock

      Well Tecmo only handled FF in JP/NA but I guess they decided Fatal Frame was a more interesting title.

      Project Zero was handled by a company called Wanadoo in Europe and they decided to stick with the original name.

      Interestingly Wanadoo were also a ISP internet provider in Europe and later became Orange. They published mostly European made budget titles. But had a two title deal with Tecmo (PZ and Rygar) about the best games they did.

      • DizzyGear

        I never knew Wanadoo published games. I indeed only knew them as an ISP (and a horrible one at that). Pretty intresting indeed. Thanks.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    This I am very excited for. I hope they can also show gameplay making well use of the WiiU gamepad.

    • Black Heaven

      You take a photo of ghosts using the gamepad I guess?

      I do hope they localize this Fatal Frame for Wii U.

      • Kaetsu

        I feel like Nintendo will localize it considering that they are trying to push “mature titles” like Bayonetta 2 and Devil’s Third. On the Wii they never localized Fatal Frame because they never really had to.

      • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

        Of course. I hope it’s implemented properly…its a no brainer.

        I think it would be in Nintendo’s best interest to localize it.

  • JustJam

    I wanna see the Deadly Premonition producer work with Fatal Frame’s. I think they can create an awesome horror-survival mystery game. Maybe something that doesn’t involve a scared school girl trapped inside a haunted place with a camera again.

  • fairysun

    Woah, this is great news to start my day ….
    and a bad game to end my day (and having nightmares).

  • Codename: D.A.V.I.D.

    I really want to see how it’s going to be played.

    • lyhthegreat .

      probably holding the wiiu controller like a camera and seeing thru it??

  • Lissomia

    If this comes to NA I’d definitely get a Wii-U for this omg :)

    • lyhthegreat .

      same here…i will be ultra disappointed if it doesn’t get localized like ff4 and considering that wiiu is region-locked, importing would be outta the question unless we are lucky to have someone patch the game for us like what happened with ff4.

  • lyhthegreat .

    Yes!!yes!!!yess!!!finally,my reason for a wiiu has come!!!

  • lyhthegreat .

    is the fatal frame movie out yet btw??i have not been following news on that recently..

  • Yuuki

    If this comes then it will be set in stone that the Wii U is the best
    next/current gen system for me! Though this game will require three

    1.A good heartstring tugging story like the first 3(Didn’t/couldn’t play the fourth)
    2.Tsuki Amano ending theme,because her songs added to the feels
    3.It has to be scary and not sellout like these other “horror” games
