Nintendo Japan have posted the official box art for the forthcoming Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden. The horror based title is exclusive to Wii U and is currently being developed by Koei Tecmo. The game is set to be released on September 27th in Japan.
See, this is a good example of how the Gamepad can actually be implemented well for a game.
I really hope it sells well.
Exactly! I wanted to snag the one on 3DS but never got around to it… Some of the mechanics for that one looked really neat, along with the hardback book that came with the game. I’m hoping this game will be one of the many that shows consumers what the GamePad is capable of.
Good 69 cover with the two girls
XD Damn it. You just ruined it for us. lol
This comment was inevitable. It was really handed to him on a silver platter. Lol
Also, completely off topic from the whole 69 thing, the case looks really cool. They should make more black cases.
The darker cases are Japan only I think… But man, it does look awesome!
It sucked bad. Mainly because of it’s dependence on being played in a brightly lit room. :/
That’s too bad, you’d think being a horror game they’d consider the lighting factor… Is that all that sucked about it? How about the book it came with, that looked interesting.
Yes! Besides being short (but not TOO short, it had potential to be a great game. It required the AR function of the 3DS, you HAD to have the book and the game. Which was fine. Except the AR feature of the 3DS to read the pages of the book only work in a well lit room. :/
I was so excited for the game. I still own it… I may try to go back and play it… But it’s a damn shame you can’t play it in the dark or at night. :(
Yeah, that’s really too bad…
Too bad it didn’t come with a flashlight attachment. :/
No info for Americas?
FEMINIST RAGE ALERT!!!
>Outside of 4chan
Newfag pls go
Dam I can’t believe I never heard of this horror game series I just found out about it this year love horror games I need to get a wiiu how many fatal frame games are there I want to play them
Jokes on you, filthy human troll. He already owns a Wii U & definitely knows about the existence of Fatal Frame. Try again, idiot.
Now that is a gorgeous piece of art. Much more interesting than most western box art.
Definately will get it…
I guess the black case and darker Wii U logo thing is to increase the scary-ness!
Thats how the Japanese box’s look with the darker logo.
As long as it gets localized, I don’t care if I have to wait a year. I want to play it.
Looks dark, I wouldn’t mind a little edgy game actually, might get this depending on reviews
an edgy game for an edgy person like you :)
You know it baby :-)
Love how the Wii U logo, and the blue area around it, is a lot darker on Mature games!
Now that’s a fucking cool artbox and should be a standard edition for all Wii U game boxes. :3
I’d say only for the games with a dark story, though.
Beautiful box art!
So how do you submit news on here? Do you just post in the comment section or something?
Click Contact and Tips and send your story GlaDOS
What glorious news do you bring Admiral?…
Nothing special. Just news about the confusing Ubisians and how they believe Smash will increase sales, but again nothing that special.
And Gamestop talking about Wii U first party games boosting sales.
And then they will get ideas of taking DNA samples from our people because they feel butthurt…
This game is only japan keep dreaming that is going to come world wide
But I guaranteed in the future this game will come in the ps4
Yeah, you can keep dreaming that it will come to the PS4 when in reality, it won’t.
In the future, your pathetic species won’t even exist…
Fatal Frame is part Nintendo now, get over it. You make PS players look bad. Quit it.
No, no, no, PS4 can’t handle this kind of gameplay you don’t have the game controller for it. Go home kid and stick to COD and AC. You know, the generic shooter and the run, kill, climb, jump, hide and repeat kind of games.
Do some research, filthy Sonyan human. Nintendo owns a piece of Fatal Frame so it’s never going on a Sony console again. Not unless Nintendo sells their percentage, anyway.
If you want Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden to localize in the United States, Canada, and Europe, send in a tweet to Nintendo of America and Koei Tecmo Games America.
It will come don’t worry
Even your Mario and Zelda will
Bow down to the ps4
Troll harder, douchebag. Nintendo is here to stay whether you accept it or not. You can keep your JunkStatus4hore for all we care.
Keep dreaming kid. Your PS4 is as dry as a desert right now. Relying mostly on 3rd party and old remastered from the last generation to carry its weight around.
someone should make a petition for this to get localized
Good god! That blue looks sooo good.
THAT BLACK CASE! It was designed so well. See Nintendo? Gimmie moar black cases. I bought that overpriced Spirit Camera knowing how short the game was. I just wanted Nintendo to know that true horror games are cool, and we need more of them.
It is over priced.
Its only $10 now, so not anymore.
If this comes to europe i buy it day 1.
I hate horror games :/. What.s the point in paying money just to experience a bad emotion?
I LOVE to be scared. It’s not a bad emotion for everyone.
Man, being scared to progress through the next section is so great! I loved the Resident Evil games because of that! It’s a gameplay mechanic all in it’s own, you are submersed into the game to the point that any enemy will scare the crap out of you. I personally think if a game can scare you like that, they’ve succeeded in getting you emotionally invested in their game.
Fear is only bad if you let it hold you back, human. Having the courage to overcome fear will make you stronger. Running from it only makes you weak.

Reggie: Hey Iwata, we are having some serious game drought problems here, have any idea?
Iwata: I know, I will make this game Japan exclusive.
The darkness of the Wii U logo just looks so beautiful to me.
Reggie will make sure it never comes out here. It’s just not family friendly.
Why can’t Wii U games here in the states get black cases like that? Instead we get some tacky red cases on certain games that make them stand out like a sore thumb.
I wish I could play this game. X) It looks like the one game “The Calling”, and I love any horror based game.
Dammit, why didn’t the Western Wii U boxes get that cool gradient effect to them.
OHYEAH that cover art gives me 69 more reasons to wanna get that game – wink wink, nudge nudge.
Hurry up & take that game global, damn it! It could really help sale some Wii Us outside of Japan! And if it does well, it will show those retarded dumbfuck humans at Ubishit that there is a fanbase for mature titles on the Wii U!
