Some crafty folks have issued a homebrew English translation patch for Fatal Frame IV, and removes the region lock.

Tecmo’s Japanese office has said that Fatal Frame IV will not be leaving Japan any time soon, and the European version has indeed been canceled.
“It is regrettable that Nintendo has decided to not publish ‘Fatal Frame IV for Wii at this time,” a rep told Cubed3. “But the only thing we can do is respect the company’s decision no matter what reason they have.
“However, we have once more realized that there are many fans anticipating our franchise and are very proud and pleased to find out this fact. What we at Tecmo can do from this point forward is keep this project for the future and devote ourselves to launching the next version that will live up to those expectations.
“We will definitely officially announce this when the time is right.”
There is hope for fans who want an English version of the game, though.
A completely legal translation patch is in development and works with official copies of the game. It’s at the 60% translated marker and will be completed in the next few months.

Looks like Europe won’t be getting Fatal Frame IV unless it’s imported.
Originally slated for a May release, and advertised in a French magazine, the European release has been canceled according to the Official Nintendo Magazine.
From the mag:
“One time envisaged for a May release, the localization of the game has been cancelled and the game will stay as an Japanese exclusive game.”
No reason was cited, so hopefully Tecmo/Nintendo can get together and work things out for everyone who wants it.
More over on Cubed3.

According to a post over on NintendoPad, a magazine page in a French magazine advertising Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse says it’s coming to Europe in April. Or May.
Translated, the ad states: “They will haunt your Wii next month”. Scary.
Tecmo’s announced nothing as yet, so don’t get too excited.
Official Nintendo Magazine previously reported that Fatal Frame IV would be released in Europe sometime in February, but nothing else has been said until now.
The game was released exclusively in Japan last July, and as of December 2008 has sold 63,489 copies.
