Default Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden


Quote:
Koei Tecmo producer Keisuke Kikuchi made an appearance during the NicoNico Live Fatal Frame series stream to talk about the latest of the upcoming new game on Wii U, which was revealed as Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden [零 ~濡鴉ノ巫女~ Zero ~Nuregarasu no Miko].

The concept of the game comes from a “Japanese-style” horror, which will revolve around Japanese buildings, using cameras, and the fear of “getting wet”.

It takes place in a big mountain that has a big lake and graves. According to Kikuchi, it seems like we’ll be seeing a lot of damp areas, and quite the scary figures, like traditional Japanese ghost girls who appears completely drenched in water.

The protagonist Yuri Kozukata has an ability she’s had since childhood, where she could touch something and find the “truth” behind its history.

The Wii U GamePad will have a camera feature that shows things that you normally can’t see with your eyes, and it will also be used as some sort of weapon that can be used while facing enemies.

The story unfolds the mysterious events that occurs in this mysterious mountain. During the trailer, it showed Yuri watching a girl slit her throat, only to have her disappear… followed by a mysterious figure appear right behind Yuri.

Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden will be released on September 27, 2014 in Japan.



Hopefully, this one comes to the States...

Loved the original. Never got around to the others. Can you imagine holding the gamepad like the Camera Obscura and having the ghosts appear in your view!? So many possibilities.

Another Fatal Frame that Nintendo will refuse to localize for NA.

Um... yay?

I do give this one a better chance the IV to be localized since horror games are very popular right now in the States. Plus is give Nintendo another adult game for the western markets.

Who knows though... Game will be Japanese horror and someone high up with Nintendo will probably believe it will be too strange, or too Japanese, for the western markets.

Were getting the Bayonettas and Devil's Third. I wouldn't automatically assume this will get looked over. Especially if it uses the Gamepad well.

I'm going to wait and see if it is announced for the US or the UK. The Fatal Frame II remake on Wii was localized and released in the UK and Australia. I'll import a Wii U from the UK if that happens again.

There's a petition floating around somewhere to bring this to the USA and UK.

That happens all too often; If I'm not mistaken, they thought that way about Pokemon. I'm not sure who made that call, but looking back, shows how much he knew.

Seriously, if Nintendo AGAIN doesn't release a fatal frame title to English speaking countries I'll flip my Sh*t. It's like square enix and their desire to not release final fantasy stuff in the west.

It'd be neat if this could be ported to PS4 at least if it makes it to NA. Nintendo can't hold on to this franchise forever, it needs to stretch its legs to the more superior consoles.

Shitty but not at all surprising. Would have been nice to have another game for my WiiU.

Eh. It would honestly be a low seller. The thing that gets me is how they limit any special editions to their NYC store. The Hyrule Warriors thing was a complete sham. I guess there was only around 300 copies total.

Exactly! this is the kind of thing that make you wonder...

I am loving Hyrule Warriors, but I hated the fact we did not get the Treasure Box in other countries outside Japan, I can kind of understand them not bringing Fatal Frame but a limited edition Zelda game?

Even ordering from Amazon Japan was a no-go, they restricted the purchase to Japan only, by the time it got released third parties were selling them for more than the double of the original cost... and then the joke of selling the scarf version only in NY...

*sigh*

Sorry for the rant, I was really hoping they would bring this one...
