Fatal Frame has been dormant for some time, but now the classic horror series is back, with a new entry headed to Wii U.

According to Gematsu‘s translation of a Famitsu report, Tecmo Koei and Nintendo are collaborating on the project.

No release date, title or further details were revealed, but Tecmo Koei did announce a major expansion of the Fatal Frame universe.

A live action film is on the way from Kadokawa Corporation, and expected to hit Japanese cinemas in northern autumn. A novel is coming in August from The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service author Eiji Otsuka. Finally, a comic is coming courtesy of Kindaichi Case Files writer Shin Kibayashi.

Fatal Frame is know as Project Zero in Japan. The series has produced for main entries and one spin-off, but thr last release – developed by Grasshopper Manufacture, no less – was never localised, much to our dismay.

Somewhat unusually for a survival horror, Fatal Frame doesn’t include weapons and combat; players explore haunted locations and use a camera to capture ghosts. Presumably this will lend itself fairly well to the Wii U’s Game Pad.
