New Fatal Frame game to be released on Wii
OH YEAH! Tecmo Koei have released some new screenshots from their new title, temporarily named “Zero New Title”, and it looks like the game is a remake of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. The screenshots feature a pair of Female twins in clothes very similar to those of Mio and Mayu, the twins from the original PS2 release, and one of the locations also looks to be very similar. Considering that Fatal Frame 2 is my favourite title from the series, this is exciting news!
More images are available from Siliconera.
Before I get too excited, the game is going to be released by Nintendo in Japan. This makes the chances of Zero New Title being released in Western countries slim as we are yet to (and unlikely to) get Fatal Frame 4, which was also published by Nintendo. However, the game was patched by fans and will run on an unmodified Wii as long as you have a physical copy of the Japanese release. More information on the patch is available here. Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly was released on the PS2 in 2003 by Tecmo in the US, and by Ubisoft under the title “Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly” in Europe in 2004. If you are a survival horror fan, you owe it to yourself to give this game a try!
