While the Fatal Frame series has attracted a cult following over the years, it was probably at pretty long odds of making a return. Hopefully, you took those odds, though, because that’s exactly what is happening. Known in some territories as Project Zero, the survival horror series is being revived by Nintendo and Tecmo Koei after more than five years in the gaming wilderness.
Unfortunately, the news isn’t all that flash if you happen to have invested in an Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Drawing on a Japanese language article in Famitsu, Polygon this week reported that a new Fatal Frame title is coming exclusively to the Wii U. The motion sensitive Wii U gamepad may be a good fit for the core gameplay of the series, which involves taking photographs of spooky goings-on.
With software releases on the Wii U having slowed to a trickle, this announcement has come at a great for owners of Nintendo’s latest home console.
A release date is yet to be announced for the new Fatal Frame and it isn’t yet clear if it will be making its way to Australia.
