That's Yuri Kozukata. She's 19.

The other girl is Miu and that's the one that is underage. And she got the unlockable Princess Zelda costume.

My copy is currently at the post office, will get it today.

I think I'll receive my copy today or in the next days.

Anyway, I really liked the gameplay but there was a time when the GamePad went nuts with its camera and I had a zombie ghost getting near me to attack. I've to say I really like the motion camera over the stick control but it suuucks when this happens.

Damn. Someone was jacking off while playing Fatal Frame.

Jokes aside, I hope Nintendo sends you a proper copy.

Upper right corner. Lots of white dots.
I'm quite sure that those aren't supposed to be there.

What I meant was that this game focused a lot more on combat, whereas previous Zero games offered more in the way of exploration and puzzle solving. I've played through both this game and Crimson Butterfly on the Wii in Japanese, and I was never really slowed down in this one by any puzzles. They were always very easy to figure out, and you even had the "sixth sense" to show you the way you were supposed to go.

Oh, I see.

Can't remember that many puzzles in Project Zero 2, but I played that ages ago on PS2. Bought the Wii version at release, but haven't played it yet at all. Shame on me.

"Sixth sense" seems to be standard nowadays. At least they didn't put in "see through walls" and "mark ghosts" functionality.

Would really like to give it a go, but I have to wait for Nintendo. In the worst case they will tell me to send it all back to the store and I don't want to unwrap the game case yet because of that.

I can't believe it. Why would they do that? It has to be an error. It looks like an error. Did they use zavvi as consultants?
It looks as if the paint came off.

Anyway, I can now open the game. Thanks.

Reversible cover:


Nice. If Nintendo only did this all the time. Flipping German age ratings...

Game case probably looks more questionable up close & personal but yeah if you hadn't played the game at all, similar dots are in-game effects.

Edit

Btw,

Is that the altered version of the game?
I mean did EU get the original costumes?

Of course not.

I'm pretty sure that NoE localized the game and replaced the costumes because of laws in certain countries. And NoA just grabbed it from NoE.

Project Zero 2 Wii Edition even had costumes removed instead of replaced. And that one was only released in Europe. Although you can hack them into the game again via homebrew.

Project Zero 5 is effectively an improvement. PZ2 had no dual audio, no physical goodies, 2 costumes were removed.
PZ5 has dual audio, physical goodies and 2 costumes were at least only replaced (and one of those costumes is quite sexy as well)
Hopefully PZ6 will be designed by people, who will put grown up girls in it instead of underage ones and then we will probably finally get everything.

Hm, the steelbook doesn't seem to have been a misprint after all because the rest look identical (I'll be receiving mine this week).

Still it's a pretty stupid idea for whomever decided to include the white spots and surely on the spine they could've done a better job by using the stylised Project Zero title than mere text.



Edit: @jimidini reversible cover? I knew that the 1st prints of Wind Waker HD had one but it's impossible to tell which Wii U games have since the cases are completely blue (unless the owner checks it himself).

Wind Waker HD Limited Edition definitely has a reversible cover.
All sorts of Wii games had them too.

For example Xenoblade Chronicles, Last Story, Pandora's Tower.
Even Sin & Punishment 2 had one.

But all sorts of other Wii U Limited Editions didn't have them and that's really a shame, because NoE creates specific covers for the regular releases (one for PEGI, one for German age rating and so on), but only 1 cover for their Limited Editions, which means most of the time you get covers with PEGI + German age rating logos on them.

The newer prints don't (UK copies). I ordered two copies, one for myself and to sell the other one (in hopes it'd have the reversible cover) and neither did.

No biggie.

Just received it! It all looks so awesome ('cept for the white dots on the steelbook ).

What I hate about German Wii U games (or just about any other from Europe) is that the colour stripe stands out from the rest, as shown below. Thankfully it's the only game.

P.S.: Already pre-ordered Xenoblade X Limited Edition for 39.

The triangles specify the region within Europe and Australia region.

The color on Project Zero 5 probably means Europe-wide release or something, because as for now the colors were:

Green - UK
Pink - Spain
Light Red - France
Light Blue - Italy (not so sure about this)
Dark Blue - Germany (not so sure about this)
Brown - Australia

The color of Project Zero 5 is the same as all of my other Limited Editions, which is Dark Red.
Sniper Elite v2, which I bought from France has a different red. I guess Light Red.

Nintendo always creates 1 Limited Edition for whole Europe, which means you would even get those triangles in case you bought it within UK.

I have it preordered atm for 67 EUR.

Limited Edition didn't get a reprint. But it's interesting that even the regular first print had a reversible cover.
I have no idea why companies are only doing this for first prints. Blurays + DVDs from Germany are a huge pain in the butt because of the age ratings. Quite a few companies are doing reversible covers, but some are also doing it for first prints only, which means it's a guessing game if you get it or not.

I'm well aware of that and Australia doesn't have a colour stripe in the spine, it's a rating logo.

The USK rating logo alone confirms it's from Germany.

That's why it has a USK rating logo and a PEGI rating logo.

It's sold everywhere. It's one version only. It's sold in Germany, France, UK, Spain, everywhere. That's what Nintendo is always doing with their Limited Editions. Back cover is multilingual because of that.

Because it's sold everywhere, it has to have all age ratings on its cover. That's why it has the USK rating and the PEGI rating.

For regular editions, Nintendo creates localized covers. For Limited Editions, they don't.

Isn't it a third person shooter with sniping?
At least Wii U has no tearing and I'm fine with it because of that. Sure, it's another one of those 3rd party "efforts". Typical for Nintendo consoles. 3rd parties can't be bothered.

NoE is located in Germany, so effectively all European games come from Germany.

bugger, I already used that voucher thingie for my Predator head. Will ask a friend if he can help me out with his amazon account. Nice price.

Precisely.

Here's a link to the European Nintendo colours: https://segaretro.org/Nintendo_of_Eu...ured_triangles

Was thinking of FPS in the sense of sniping, but yes it's a TPS. Sniper Elite V2 on the Wii U was utter rubbish for how it was handled and my Wii U even froze because of how shite the game was.

After I was done with the game, that was it. Nothing else worth doing and since the devs were so lazy only the GamePad was usable as the controller (completely ignoring the WUPC which feels like a 360 controller with digital triggers).

Also, the way the game ended was underwhelming because it felt like just another mission than its actual ending.
