I would love for this game to be released in the west, but let's be realistic. If it did, only a small fraction of WiiU owners would actually buy it, which is why Nintendo does not bother to localize the game anymore. You people complain that all you get are Mario and Pokemon games, but then when they are released they sell millions. Then a game like this comes to the U.S., and people ignore it. Once again, blame the "fan".

The atmosphere is damn great... Hope it will come to Europe since the one for the Wii came here.

It's a great year for the WiiU in Japan... when will the japanese gamers start buying the system?

They didn't localize at all one game, and it was because of a big game breaking bug that Koei didn't want to fix. The remake actually got released in Europe, but it was late in the Wii cycle, and NoA didn't think there would be enough players still interested in it.
We got the 3DS one, so there is a good chance we will get it.
But, yeah, it wouldn't hurt to all show our appreciation for the game and our great desire to get it here!

[EDIT] OH! Going to Twitter to retween and reply to Koei's tweet, I found out that Bill Trinen retweeted the Japanese Nintendo tweet linking to the official site! Bill Trinen work in the treehouse... treehouse = translators... That coukd be a hint! :D *really too damn hopeful*

Maybe, but at least it's good to know Bill knows about the game haha. If he has interest in it, maybe there's a bit more of a chance of localization? Considering the Wii U's situation, I think Nintendo would be stupid not to localize a game like this. It fits nicely alongside ZombiU & Resident Evil Revelations for example, and provides a nice traditional horror game to play when there aren't too many out there at the moment.

What do you mean "you people"?

the difference between this and the wii games is that back then nintendo was swimming in their scrooge mcduck vault of money just based on hardware sales alone. they didn't need software to make their console interesting.

while a ton of people may not buy this if released in NA, it would still be an interesting piece in a library of available software, which Nintendo needs to continue to build. i'm remaining cautiously optomistic that nintendo is desperate enough to try to localize this to the west. i'll buy it if the do. and i play mario and pokemon.

That japanese release date is awfully sudden, I hope this has been in the works for long enough, we don't need a repeat of the bugged up the arse FF4.

What would be amazing, is if they pulled a bayonetta and included a tweaked, upscaled port of FF4 with this. It won't happen but it's nice to dream.

A bugged up game is better than it not coming at all. And this is 2014 where even nintendo does patches now. So if the game did have a big it could be sorted out. I still don't see this coming to the US but since they are being devils third to everyone, seems crazy for them not to bring this here.

That's a very good sign. Bill Trinen does work with the localization team in NA. But is he retweeting because he's in the know or retweeting because he is a fan and wants to play it.... A little of both?

Probably the latter... but he still is quite an high up himself, so he could help convince NoA to localize... so the latter could actually make the former a reality... somehow... But yeah, this is really farfetched and hopeful. Maybe it would be best to just wait and see.

The main character is very pretty.

Anyway, can't say I really care for games like this. I'd but and play it if it released here, but the gameplay has never been my thing. All the frights and scares come from your inability to do anything meaningful in the game. Compare to DMC, which also has ghosts and demons, if someone in there bothers you, you can just shoot him.

Fatal Frame 4 was BY FAR, the best game on the Wii.

I was only able to play because we could hack the Wii to play Japanese games.

This one... I think I'm gonna have to buy a freakin' Japanese Wii U, because Reggie won't let Nintendo release this here. Reggie hates Fatal Frame.

Looks like the perfect game to scare the sh*t out of my girlfriend. I would totally buy it, looks fun (and scary) overall (I have never played any game in the fatal frame franchise but they always seemed scary). I hope they bring it over here.
Though, I would only play it on wii u. The 3ds game never got me interested.

DMC isn't scary... I really don't see how these two games are even a fair comparison. They aren't even the same genre.

The Wii U needs games and there's no reason Nintendo of America shouldn't push to get this here in the states. This should have been at E3.... LOOK... LOOK... this is why the Gamepad exists...
