Good news for horror fans as Nintendo Europe has tweeted that Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water will be showcased on Treehouse Live via Twitch and YouTube later this evening. The game is titled Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water by Nintendo Europe, so we can assume that’s its official name when it launches here in Europe later this year.
A member of Neogaf has reached out to publisher XSEED to see if there’s any chance they will bring Project Zero 2 – which is known as Fatal Frame 2 in America – to North America. The publisher responded by saying that XSEED has no intention of trying to publish any Fatal Frame titles, and that the person who asked the question should try to contact Tecmo Koei America. Here’s their response.
“Afraid that we have no intention of trying to publish any Fatal Frame titles. Speaking to Tecmo Koei America is going to be your best bet for that title.”
The Fatal Frame/Project Zero IP is now officially co-owned by Nintendo. The platform holder recently updated its copyright status and now has control of the spin-off Spirit Photography IP, and they co-own the Fatal Frame IP. Nintendo now has ownership and publishing rights of the remake.
Nintendo has announced that the game created by the Project Zero series development team Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is coming to Europe. Spirit: Camera is a truly unique horror experience that utilises all of the features of the Nintendo 3DS system to truly bring the frights to life. Use the accompanying “purple diary” – a 16-page AR Book included with the game – to view ghostly images and interact with the world like never before. European Horror fans will also be interested to know that Project Zero 2: Wii Edition will be coming to Europe.
