All this 3DS news is great and all, and I’m totally excited about Mega Man Legends 3D and the new Resident Evil stuff, but on my end, the biggest reveal from tonight’s Nintendo Conference was actually related to Nintendo’s other system.
This newly posted gallery of upcoming Wii games on Nintendo of Japan’s official site clearly names a new Rhythm Tengoku (known as Rhythm Heaven outside of Japan) and a new Fatal Frame game (which looks a lot like a remake or sequel to Fatal Frame 2). It’s not to big of a shock to see Rhythm Heaven go to the Wii, seeing as Rhythm Tengoku Gold sold so well in Japan. As for Fatal Frame, I honestly didn’t see that coming, but I guess it’s not that weird. Fatal Frame 4 on the Wii did go on to become the best selling game in the series, at least, for the one country that it was released for.
Nintendo of America will potentially pass on one, or even both, of these new games, just as the passed on the original Rhythm Tengoku on the GBA, and Fatal Frame 4 on the Wii. Thank God for kick ass fans like the guys who did the Fatal Frame translation patch, which requires absolutely no previous modding of you console. As always, dedicated Nintendo fans will to do what Nintend-wont.
Yeah, I went there, though not quite to the same extent that Sega did in the 90’s. Oh, and there are more screens in the gallery. Fatal Frame looks awesome!
