Feast Your Eyes On Fatal Frame V For Wii U!

Fatal Frame is one of the best survival horror franchises ever made with it's terrifying atmosphere and unique take on fighting spirits with the Camera Obscura. The series may have started on PlayStation 2 but has since taken up residence with Nintendo who is now co-owner of the franchise. This is the result of Nintendo's excellent relationship with series creator Tecmo Koei who has worked with Nintendo quite extensively over the last console generation.

Earlier this year, Tecmo Koei and Nintendo announced a bit of a revival for the Fatal Frame franchise which has been fairly silent since the release of the underrated portable spin-off Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for the 3DS in 2012. The latest entry in the series titled Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (translated as Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden) is set to launch exclusively for Wii U in Japan on September 27, 2014. Interestingly, Nintendo is not only publishing the game but also co-developing the game with Tecmo Koei which will likely result in one of the most polished games in the series. The game is said to feature a more open world design compared to previous entries and will utilize the Wii U Gamepad as the viewfinder for your only form of defense, the Camera Obscura. It is currently unknown if the game will see release outside of Japan but fans are hopeful seeing as Nintendo published Spirit Camera in the US 2 years ago and has shown an increased willingness to bring many of their new second party titles to the US (Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101 & Devil's Third are perfect examples of this). To showcase the new game, Nintendo has released a trailer which showcases both the beauty and horror of this new game. Enjoy!
