Watch the Creepy and Wet Opening Moments of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water

We’ve gotten a more in-depth look at the upcoming Wii U-exclusive horror game, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.

Featured above, the YouTube channel GameXplain got their hands on the game prior to its release later this month.

It’s worth noting this is the entire opening scene and prologue – nothing has been cut so you should avoid watching this if you don’t like spoilers.

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is launching for the Wii U on October 22nd in North America followed by October 30th in Europe.

    Holy fuck this looks amazing.
    WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE ON THE WiiU.

    I don’t wanna buy a console just for this one game…

    It’s really a shame this isn’t getting a physical release in the west. There’s no space on the system to store full titles like this.

    I have no interest for most games on the WiiU, which is why I’m not buying it.

    I’m sure a Wii U emulator is not far from completion.

    Kinda has to be on the Wii U since nintendo partially owns the series.

    Yeah NoA killed a bunch of sales making it digitally only. Watch them use it’s low sales as an excuse never to bother localizing the series again.

    Between this and Xenoblade Chronicles X, I’m really glad I imported a Japanese Wii U. NoA has only made horrible decisions this gen.

    I noticed Tales of zesitiria on pc is getting close to its 100% pre order reward goal on steam and its been going fast these past few days

    Prone to issues long term vs the systems with a larger native drive installed.

    I kinda figured this out already, considering how the last Fatal Frame game was on the Wii.

    Still, it does suck that this is exclusive to a console that I have no interest in owning.

    I can’t buy this digital. I just can’t. I was all set to buy it, seeing the European limited edition (expecting us to at least get physical), but… nope.

    This looks fantastic, too. Makes me sad.

    It really sucks that this is digital only in the west. Is it really that expensive to have physical versions?? Oh well i’m still going to buy it.

    Wait is the new Xenoblade game going to be digital only in the US?

    No it’s getting a physical version in the US. It’s just NoA hired 8-4 to localize it. The last Xeno game they touched was butchered by censorship and scenes getting completely re-written to the point where the tone of the scene is completely different than the japanese version.

    I should boycott this because of the lack of a physical release in NA, but I’m too much of a Fatal Frame fanboy. I must have it. I am weak, I’m sorry.

    Aa an aside, that’s top notch waifu material.

    Hope you guys called nintendo to ask for a physical copy like I did during the call in days operationzero arranged on twitter. I’m hoping we’ll get a physical release if enough people brought it up.

    EU should boycott a lot of games, due to them been up to 30% more expensive than in US.

    I’ve seen that said loads of times without any proof. Sounds that like a rumor that’s got out if hand. There just the publisher.

    Yeah you should listen to one of the Nintendo IGN podcasts where they are interviewed. One guy rants about the face touching game in the new Fire Emblem being something only pedophiles enjoy. REALLY hope they aren’t doing the FE Fates localization. They are pretty horrible at their job.

    Wii U is effectively an upgraded Wii and we can emulate the Wii very well. So I’m sure it won’t be that hard.
