Last year, Fatal Frame 5, the newest entry in the psychological horror series, released in Japan, exclusively for the Wii U. Many assumed that the game would never be brought over to the west, considering the debacle surrounding the localization of Fatal Frame 4, which had been exclusive to the Wii.
Those many people were wrong- during their Nintendo Direct webcast yesterday, Nintendo confirmed that the game will be coming over to the west later this year, exclusively to the Wii U. This, of course, further bolsters the excellent Wii U lineup (just as we had predicted), which was left a bit weaker thanks to the unexpected delay of The Legend of Zelda last week announced last week. It also adds another atypical game to the Wii U’s lineup, something different from the usual Nintendo fare, which should endear the console to even those who traditionally aren’t Nintendo fans (other such games on the console include ZombiU, The Wonderful 101, Monster Hunter, Bayonetta 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and the upcoming Devil’s Third).
When we learn more about Fatal Frame 5, we will be sure to update you. Stay tuned.
