Finally, your mature fix

Tecmo Koei Games, in conjunction with Nintendo, announced today via Famtisu that will be bringing the next entry in the critically acclaimed Fatal Frame franchise (Known as Project Zero in Europe and just Zero in Japan) exclusively to Wii U.

While the publisher neglected to provide further details about the new Japanese horror adventure, they did reveal that they were expanding the series through a series of new multimedia outlets.

Kadokawa will be shooting a live-action film starring Seventeen magazine models Ayami Nakajo and Aoi Morikawa for release in Autumn. Also, Kadokawa Horror Bunko will publish the novels Multiple Personality Detective Psycho and The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service in August 2014. Finally, a comic is in the works.

No word was given about plans to release the game in the west, but we’ll likely hear more about it in an upcoming Nintendo Direct or at E3 2014. Of course, it’s entirely possible that we won’t see a localization, as Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was never localized in the west and Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly was never localized in North America for the Wii.
