Nintendo Reveals Release Dates for Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden and The Devil’s Third


Tired of sunshine and rainbows? Looking to catch spirits and splash some gore across your Wii U Gamepad? Then YOU are in luck! Nintendo has just announced release dates for two highly anticipated adult-oriented titles — Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden and The Devil’s Third.

Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden will be released digitally on October 22nd, and it will be a free-to-start game. Players will be able to check out the prologue, Chapter 1, and most of Chapter 2 for free. There will also be a physical Collector’s Edition available in stores.

This is the fifth game in Tecmo Koei’s survival horror franchise about an evil that can only be defeated by using a camera that can capture and take away evil’s essence.

From the creative mind of legendary designer Tomonobu Itagaki, Devil’s Third is an over-the-top, third-person action shooter that combines modern military weaponry with ninja-style swordplay and melee combat. Look for it in stores December 11th.

The Wii U version of Devil’s Third features both a full multiplayer mode as well as an exciting single-player story mode. Its single-player mode immerses players in an engrossing storyline set against a background of intrigue and global military conflict. In parallel, the multiplayer mode lets players blast and slash each other in deep and challenging online combat that blends clan-based action, resource management, and strategy.
