Details Emerge on Ju-on Game

Also, developer AQ Interactive increases stake in XSEED
The onslaught of Wii horror titles continues with Ju-on, a movie game based on the Japanese film that was remade in the US asThe Grudge and which has missed the movie tie-in window by about five years. Can't win 'em all, right?
Details about the game have remained somewhat of a mystery; now we at least have an idea of how the game controls. According to Siliconera, you use the pointer as your flashlight (which apparently can run out of battery) and move forward and backward with A and down on the d-pad, respectively, no 'chuck required.
A multiplayer "surprise" element also exists in some fashion, where your friend/mortal enemy can join in and flash a light around too, kinda like Galaxy. Not much more is known about this part, but hey, co-op is always a plus.
Ju-on is out June 30 in Japan, and with the whole owning 90% of XSEED business AQ has going on, let's hope a localized release isn't too far behind. Unlike that other horror game that likes Japan so much and stopped returning our phone calls a year ago. That bastard.
