In the late 90s, Resident Evil set off a slew of also-rans in a developing genre called survival horror. Though many of them have fallen away and been forgotten, the really great ones still resonate even today with gamers of all types.
Fatal Frame falls into the camp of being a critically-lauded masterpiece but one that stood somewhat in the shadows of its more prevalent contemporaries. Unlike titles like Silent Hill and the aforementioned Resident Evil, no one clamored to make Fatal Frame into a movie – or, gods forbid, remake it – so it has remained relatively untainted by interests milking it as a franchise.
If DreadOut doesn’t satiate your appetite for hunting down those pesky ghosts with a camera than you’re more than welcome to re-experience the horrifying game that was Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly when it releases on PSN next Tuesday. This was, in my humble opinion, the best game in the series, so I’m crazy excited to get my hands on it again. How about you, what was your favorite Fatal Frame?
If you miss your old skool survival horror, it may be time for you to blow the dust of your family friendly Nintendo Wii. It’s almost time to go back to your horrific roots. However, as much as this hurts my insides, Project Zero II: Wii Edition is coming out in Europe and Japan only. It’s almost mind blowing because I would have thought there would be an extremely large North American audience for it. Either way, me sad. My online searching tells me Wii’s are region locked, so that’s a bummer. Anyways, past the break you can check out a decent amount of screens, and those of you in Europe and Japan can look forward to the games re-release on June 28th in Japan and June 29th in Europe.
Two years ago it was announced that Fatal Frame 2, also known as Project Zero 2 would be coming to the Nintendo Wii. Well, the classic horror game is coming, only not to America. Many of you are usually a little upset when we announce a contest and it’s US only. Well, it’s payback time for you. On June 28th the game hits Japan and on June 29th it hits Europe. So America gets bitch slapped with no FF2! You win some you lose some I guess. That wont stop me from spreading the word to you lucky readers who get to play the Wii version. Head past the break for the trailer, and more info about the switch over to the Wii.
