Things are really cooking in the Fatal Frame universe. First up a Japanese film adaptation has been announced to coincide with the release of the recently announced Nintendo Wii U video game, Fatal Frame: The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden, and now rumblings of a U.S. adaptation have begun!
This morning in Japan, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo revealed your first look at the next entry into the Fatal Frame video game franchise, Fatal Frame: The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden, and we have the trailer along with several screenshots and details for you.
In North America Nintendo has long been the company that horror forgot. While Xbox and Playstation owners have been lauding the giggling glee of zombie slaughter and cowering in fright while curled up with a survival horror game, Wii U owners have been left primarily frightless.
Originally released in 2001, it was pretty clear right off the bat that the Japanese survival horror game Fatal Frame was ripe for a terrifying feature film adaptation. Over a decade later and after a few sequels, it's finally happening; and we've got your first look today!
One of the single most frightening games ever created, Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly, is hitting the PlayStation Network tomorrow, May 7th. Do yourself a favor. Buy it. Immediately. You'll then realize how scary video games can really be.
Good news for fans of the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox! One of the single most terrifyingly scary video games ever, Fatal Frame, is now available for sale on the PlayStation Network to play on your PlayStation 3.
Way back in the old days, my compadre Plagiarize and I used to debate Nintendo vs. MS/Sony in the console wars. A long-time Nintendo nut, he was very excited about the new DS and the upcoming "Revolution" console. Having seen the DS and read a lot about the Revolution's just-announced motion controls, I stated they were toys, not real gaming consoles. Gimmicks as opposed to real game-making technology.
So Nintendo had absolutely nothing for horror gamers in their press conference at E3 yesterday. Don’t worry, though; there are still some quality horror titles heading to the Nintendo Wii.
