Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden for Wii U is Japan-Only

By   /   Sep 29, 2014

Those who were hoping for Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden to end up outside of Japan, know that your prayers have not been answered.

In a series of tweets exchanged between Tecmo Koei Europe and fans asking about a potential western release of the latest installment in the iconic Fatal Frame series, the developer all but said that the Wii U exclusive title will be released in Japan only.

“And regarding #WeWantFatalFrame requests, as far as we know this title is JP release only. Back to the office tomorrow FYI. #KTfamily”

This makes it the second title in the series to not see a western release. The previous game – Zero: Tsukihami no Kame – was exclusive to the Wii and was never released outside of Japan either, much to the annoyance of fans.

If you want yourself to be heard, use the #WeWantFatalFrame hastag on Twitter. Who knows, maybe someone from the studio will end up reading your specific tweet and decide to release the game for its western audience.

Fatal Frame is an atmospheric survival horror series where players have to use a camera called the Camera Obscura to fight off hostile spirits. Instead of running away or hunting them down, you’ll have to face them head one and photograph them.
