Project Zero, aka Fatal Frame, is a rather interesting gaming horror series where the main character has to use an object called the Camera Obscura to capture photos of spirits. The camera also acts as a weapon to fight the less than friendly, and photo shy, ghosts that haunt the various ruins that players explore. Now Tecmo Koei and Nintendo have announced that the latest entry to the series will be a Wii U exclusive.
Neither company has announced a release date, the name of the game, or whether it will be just a Japanese title or one that gets localised, but it’s happening. While Nintendo have been criticised for not working closely with third parties recently, this could be a really good capture for the company and a potential hit for the Wii U, especially with the use of the gamepad which will surely be the Camera Obscura with this game. Imagine using the gamepad as the camera not just pointed at your TV screen but around your house as well to capture spirits.
We may get more news of this at E3, in fact I’d expect at least a trailer, and a release date of 2015 to fill the rather bare release schedule the Wii U has.
