Fatal Frame Creator Is Thinking About Ideas For Next Game On New Hardware

Online gaming publication Siliconera has conducted a lengthy interview with Makoto Shibata director of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water at Koei Tecmo Games and Toru Osawa, Co-Producer at Nintendo. If you’ve got the time then it is well worth a read, but one of the interesting things to take away is that the team is busy thinking about how they can bring the Fatal Frame series to new hardware. Presumably Makoto Shibata is talking about the Nintendo NX which is set to be revealed next year.

I know that movies and games offer different atmospheres and different ways of scaring you, but if I can start talking with people based on the ideas I receive from the movie, I think that’ll help me create new ways to scare people that take advantage of new game hardware.

Fatal Frame Localisation Removes Skimpy Costumes

Those of you who feared that the lingerie and bathing suits in Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water were being replaced with the Princess Zelda and Samus Aran outfits were correct, as they have been replaced by the Nintendo themed attire. I guess Nintendo of America and Nintendo Europe thought the costumes were a little too risky despite the game being for mature gamers only.

Is Fatal Frame: Maiden Of Black Water An eShop Exclusive In The United States?

Nintendo of America clearly hasn’t forgotten about Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water as we were all privy to some creepy gameplay footage during one of the Treehouse segments that were broadcast last week. Nintendo updated its North American site to showcase a number of titles that were shown off at E3. What’s interesting is that the placeholder box-art has an eShop symbol on the side which could suggest that its destined for an eShop only release in the United States. This isn’t confirmation by any means, but I guess we should find ou soon.

Thanks, Chesney
