New Fatal Frame Coming To Wii U


New Fatal Frame Coming To Wii U

Tecmo Koei has announced that a brand new installment in survival-horror series Fatal Frame (known as Project Zero in Europe and simply Zero in Japan) will be heading to the Wii U.

According to Famitsu (via a translation by Gematsu), Nintendo and Tecmo Koei will be collaborating on the project. This is the first in Tecmo Koei's planned multimedia expansion of the IP, with a novel, a comic book, and a film adaptation all in the works. This will not be the last time the two studios are collaborating, with the upcoming Zelda hack-and-slash Hyrule Warriors set for release later this year.

The Fatal Frame series is unique for survival-horror in the sense that there is no combat whatsoever, forcing players to explore haunted locations and using a camera to capture ghosts.

The last installment, Zero: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse,was released back in 2008 but unfortunately was never released in North America. However, a spinoff, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, was released stateside for the Nintendo DS back in 2012.

It's a perfect fit for the franchise to move to Wii U, as there are very few games that take advantage of the Wii U Gamepad's capabilities, especially amongst third party titles.

No release date has been announced yet.
