Fatal Frame coming to Wii in 2011

It’s about damn time.

A new Fatal Frame is heading to Wii in 2011, according to Nintendo and some screenshots released for it today.

Unfortunately, that’s about all the information we have at this point, but we’ll send a mail to both Nintendo and Tecmo/Koei.

Looking at the screens, it appears to be a Crimson Butterfly remake, considering sisters Mio and Mayu are featured in the shots.

Unless the developers think everyone got the same ending in Fatal Frame II, the happy one, this is likely a re-make instead of a new adventure for the twins.

We’ll still check though.

Here’s hoping Nintendo and co. don’t pull a Fatal Frame IV and only release it in Japan.

    Looks less like a remake and more like a RE4/Okami re-release. I can’t see anything all that different from the Xbox release of Crimson Butterfly.

    While Crimson Butterly is indeed awesomes, I’d love a new game.

    Just buy it then get the translation patch. No Homebrew or anything involved.

    Mio not Mil by the way ;-)

    I’m a huge fan of Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly so a re-make would be welcome :)

    There’s really no reason for Fatal Frame not to make its way onto the PS3 now, thanks to the Move.

    Make it happen, Tecmo!

    @1 Crearly the camera is now set in the backs of the characters as in FF4. This is good news… Bad it’s only for Wii considering we have move on PS3. Fatal Frame is a beautiful saga with outstanding art, acting and script… So it would be awesome to get FF4 too one day in PS3. A trilogy collection for PS3 in HD would be great too (1, 2 and 3) but that’s almost impossible to happen.

    I thought Nintendo were actually joint partners on the franchise with Tecmo now, so ‘other’ versions would be impossible? I hope that’s not true because it would be amazing to think of a new game in hi-def. But I suspect it’s Nintendo all the way from now on.

    This is very much a missed opportunity, btw. Nintendo bought into the damn franchise and then have basically mothballed it. The last one never made it out of Japan, this one is just a remake of an old game. Admittedly it’s the best game of the series, but those shots don’t really look any different to the PS2/Xbox version from way back.

    It’s a shame to see things go this way. This was one of my favourite series. :-(
