There are some cultures that believe taking a photograph captures a part of your soul. Your job in Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly is to fight horror by recording it.
Since I normally play one game at a time on my Wii U, I’m used to deleting games. Investing in an external HD for my every-so-often console seems goofy. But I almost reconsidered this decision when downloading Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, which takes up a whopping 15GB, and it’s an eShop only game.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water on Wii U has been available in Japan for a while now, but it finally showed up for everyone else on Thursday. It’s the ghost hunting game everyone already expected, but with one catch: the scantily clad bonus costumes has been removed. This oversight has pissed some people off.
My prayers have been answered, as Nintendo’s announced Fatal Frame for Wii U is coming to the rest of the world later this year. Can’t wait to crap my pants!

As a long-time fan of the Fatal Frame series, I can see the perceived appeal of having the Wii U's GamePad with its gyro sensor and dedicated screen acting as a proxy for the game's ghost-killing camera. But while it works in Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (Fatal Frame V), I'd rather just use my big screen TV.
The Fatal Frame games have always been scary. They've been kind of sexy, too. But the latest entry is, flat out, being called an erotic game by Japanese Wii U owners.
If you like frightening games, good news. Here is the first trailer for the upcoming Fatal Frame game for the Wii U.
To the non-Japanese reader/speaker, the teaser trailer for this fall's live-action Fatal Frame film is almost indistinguishable from any other Japanese horror film, until you get to the Camera Obscura bit.
Nintendo and Japanese studio Tecmo Koei are developing a new installment in the horror series Fatal Frame, according to Famitsu. The good news for Nintendo fans is that it's for the Wii U, which is a console in dire need of more quality games to play. The bad news for American Nintendo fans living stateside is that…
You might think your name is normal in your family's native tongue. Maybe it is. But put it in a different language, and sometimes, all hell can break loose.
Those Fatal Frame games sure are frightening. Don't believe me? Check out this six minute clip of the new Wii remake of Fatal Frame II, known as Fatal Frame: Deep Crimson Butterfly.
When Fatal Frame 4: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was first announced at the Tokyo Game Show 2007, horror fans rejoiced.
