While Europe never did get an official release of Fatal Frame 4, it's looking like the continent will definitely be getting a chance at it's pre-prequel. Project Zero 2: Wii Edition will be published by Nintendo of Europe and released at retail on June 29th.
Above is the latest Japanese trailer for the game. As you can see, a creepy level of closeness between two doll-like sisters one of the game's major themes. That's the kind of thing you're more likely to see in Japanese horror, and that's part of why the Fatal Frame series still has a place in today's gaming landscape. While there are plent of action-horror games on the market that work to be gross and exciting, there are few that lend focus towards making the player feel vulnerable and weird. That's where Fatal Frame excels. We can hope that this remake of Fatal Frame 2 will be no different.
We can also hope that the game will make its way to the United States at some point, preferably alongside Fatal Frame 4. The fact that Spirit Camera has been released internationally but the critically acclaimed, Suda 51 co-directed, fan translatedFatal Frame 4 remains landlocked in Japan is truly a crime against nature.
