My family vacation is ending in a couple days, which makes me quite sad. I'm just trying to enjoy the time I have here while I can. Damn this week for flying by! Wherever you are or whatever you've been doing, I hope the week has treated you kindly as well. Now let's all get some rest and keep things moving! See you in a few, short hours.
I don't know about you, but I think the new Fatal Frame game looks pretty fantastic. Just a couple hours back, we saw the reveal of Fatal Frame: Nuregarasu no Miko, which will be a Wii U exclusive. I've always been a fan of the Fatal Frame series, but this installment really looks like something special! Quite eager to learn more about just what's going on with it.
To be honest, the marriage of the GamePad with the Fatal Frame series seems like a match made in heaven. A game all about cameras can now be played with a controller that can act just like a digital camera. Real-life camera movements will work perfectly with the GamePad's motion controls and large touch screen. If there were ever a definitive controller for the Fatal Frame franchise, this would be it.
I also think the game looks quite gorgeous. There's just something about the style of visuals...the attention to detail and muted tones that really made the game stand out for me. Throw in all the fancy work with water, which is a main theme in the game, and you have what makes for some fantastic eye candy. Wii U may not be the most powerful kid on the block, but that doesn't make this title any less visually impressive.
Of course, now the big question we all want answered has to do with localization. The Fatal Frame series has had a bit of a rocky history with localization in the last few years. Should we expect the same kind of treatment here? One would hope that the Wii U's sales struggles would motivate Nintendo to bring this game out in all territories. On top of that, there are two films in the works for the franchise, with one coming from Hollywood. You would think that could be a perfect excuse to bring the game stateside, as well as to our friends in Europe.
Well, time to place your bets. Will this new Fatal Frame game get a localization outside of Japan, or will we end up losing out on another installment? Leave a comment and let us know.
