Fatal Frame Wii U

Grab those tissues, because Koei Tecmo Europe has practically confirmed that Wii U exclusive Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden won't set foot outside of Japan.

In response to Twitterers requesting news of a potential western release of this latest instalment of the Fatal Frame series using the #WeWantFatalFrame hashtag, Koei Tecmo Europe posted the following:

This sad news means that Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden is set to be the second title in the main series to not see a western release; the previous game in the series — Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen — was a Wii exclusive that only saw the light of day in Japan.

For those who don't know, Fatal Frame is an atmospheric survival horror series in which players use a camera-like device called the Camera Obscura to fight off hostile spirits by photographing them.

Are you discouraged by the news or still holding out hope that this will be the first Nintendo-exclusive game in the series released in the west? Need practise shooting elusive subjects or just need another good scare? Check your batteries, available storage, and leave us a comment!
