Hoping for a new Fatal Frame? Looks like you’re going to have to wait. In Japan, a new Fatal Frame pachislo (pachinko-slot) machine has been announced.


Developed by Tecmo, the first Fatal Frame debuted on the PS2 in 2001, while the most recent entry, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, was released on the Nintendo Wii in 2014.

You can see the debut trailer below, which features a warning for players about “shocking” scenes. It also features some fairly nice-looking cutscenes.

Shame they’re not in a game or a remake, though.

The teaser site does not mention when the machine will be released in pachinko parlors in Japan.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



I wonder if this is Japan’s way of showing the West that we’ve offended them, cuz... well I would imagine so, we can be pretty offensive
