Report: Nintendo now co-owns the Fatal Frame IP

Jun 22 // Chris Carter    @DtoidChris

Don't hold out for Fatal Frame to return to it's original Playstation home: Rely On Horror is reporting that Nintendo recently updated its copyright status and now officially co-owns the Fatal Frame IP (also known as Zero in Japan).

It also has full ownership of the ill-fated spinoff, Spirit Camera. This shouldn't come as a surprise to series fans, as Nintendo has been deeply linked with the series for quite some time. Well, there goes my dream of a shoddy Kinect Fatal Frame game! Now that the series has a new master (or co-master) maybe the next Fatal Frame will make some great use of the Wii U tech.

As it stands, the remake of Project Zero 2 is slated to hit the Wii next week on June 28th and June 29th, for Japan and Europe respectively. Sadly, there is still no news on a US date.
