Have you kept track of how many Wii games feature minimal combat and maximal flashlight? By my count, there are seven: LIT, Fragile, Fatal Frame 4, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, The Calling, and Ju-On: The Grudge. That doesn’t even count games like Spyborgs and Super Paper Mario that make use of flashlight stuff for less-than-spooky purposes. Makes you wonder if “flashlight!” will someday replace “waggle!” as the standard anti-Wii propaganda battle-cry.
OK, back to the news; turn off the lights and set that youtube to fullscreen, then tell me if this video doesn’t give you the gibblies. Honestly, I started to have doubts about Ju-On: The Grudge ever since XSEED started pushing the whole “haunted house simulator” thing. After watching this video, I’m back to wanting this game 100%.
Ju-On: The Grudge comes out in just a few days, so pre-order this sucker now if you’re at all interested. This isn’t the type of game that Gamestops and Best Buys tend to stock up on.
