Tecmo KOEI and Nintendo has announced that Fatal Frame: The Raven Haired Shrine Maiden will launch this September in Japan. This latest instalment in the series, often referred to overseas as “Project Zero”, combines classic video game horror with enhanced visuals and Wii U gamepad functionality.
Unlike other series such as Silent Hill and Resident Evil, Fatal Frame doesn’t rely on third person combat-heavy sequences. Instead, the game centres around the Camera Obscura, a unique device that allows players to see spirits and even attack them if needs be.
There’s no word on a EU version as of yet. A localised version does seem likely, however, especially after Tecmo KOEI released Project Zero 2: Wii Edition, a remake of 2003’s Crimson Butterfly with seemingly little appeal outside the Fatal Frame fandom.
