Fatal Frame Wii U Game Heads West
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Nintendo announced that KOEI Tecmo's Rei ~Nure Karasu no Miko~ (Fatal Frame: The Wet Crow Shrine Maiden) Wii U horror game is being localized for Western audiences. Nintendo did not announce a release time frame or English title.
The game is set on a large mountain with a lake. The game's scares will focus on a fear of "getting wet." The protagonist Yuri Kozukata has an ability to retrieve those who were spirited away to another world and bring them back. She ventures to the mountain after receiving such a request.
The original game follows a heroine who uses a Camera Obscura that can photograph spirits. She engages with spirits in a dilapidated Japanese-style house and other settings that gave the title (and its many follow-ups) a particular Japanese ambiance. The original game debuted on the Sony PlayStation 2 console in 2001, and it spawned several sequels and remakes on multiple platforms.
Fatal Frame: The Wet Crow Shrine Maiden was released in Japan on September 27.
