God damn that looks terrifying.
The brand new fatal Frame game, called Fatal Frame: Nuregarasu no Miko, launches exclusively for the Wii U in Japan soon, and Nintendo and Tecmo Koei are ramping up the hype. That includes some brand new TV spots for the game, as well as a brand new trailer, which you can see we have included above, and which gives us a nice overview of the game.
Fatal Frame has always been a chilling, unsettling, terrifying series, relying more in psychological scares rather than the ambling zombies that have defined the genre (in large part thanks to Resident Evil). Fatal Frame 4 found huge success on the Wii in Japan, so it makes sense that its sequel would be coming to the Wii’s successor as well.
Although no western release for Fatal Frame has been announced yet, we are hopeful and confident that it will be- with the Wii U’s lineup very lean, and Nintendo having to fill it up almost entirely by themselves, they are not likely to keep a perfectly fine high quality game out of its library for most of the world. Especially when said game is so different from anything else on the console.
