Fatal Frame creeps onto Wii U in its first trailer for the console

New, 26 comments

Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have revealed the first trailer for the upcoming Wii U Fatal Frame sequel.

Known in Japan as Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko, roughly translating to Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden, the game will launch in Japan on Sept. 27. There's no word just yet on a North American release.

In this new series installment, players take control of Kozukata Yuuri, a girl who can see spirits of those taken into the "Ghost World." On top of this, Yuuri discovers she has the ability to bring the spirits back into the real world by reaching Mount Hikamiyama.

According to Koei Tecmo, this sacred mountain is known as the mountain of death where those who wish to die can enter at a certain hour and cross from the world of the living to the world of the dead. The company states this will be the biggest Fatal Frame release to date.

As is standard in the series, players will find and capture ghosts using an in-game camera. In this Wii U iteration, players can use their Wii U GamePad to control the camera. Check out the trailer above to see how that works.

As was previously confirmed, in addition to the new game, Tecmo Koei plans the release of a live-action film based, original novel and comic series based on Fatal Frame's narrative.
