Nintendo, as we know, are all about the family funtimes. The cavorting unicorns, pink waterfalls and rainbows-sprouting-from-everybody’s-assholes side of life.
Remember that deal they made with Capcom when the Gamecube appeared? That Resident Evil business, which gave the console two still-exclusive installments (the prequel, Zero, and the remake of the original) and ports of the rest of the series? Where the balls did that come from?
Still, it proves that even they aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty/their homicidal maniac’s butcher knife bloody on occasion. Another survival horror franchise associated with the House of Mario is Fatal Frame, the camera-waving creeptastic from Tecmo Koei.
If you happen to have one of those crazy-ass ghost exorcising cameras, and you’re Japanese, it’s going to come in handy later this year. Hold on to your balls, here comes Wii U exclusive Fatal Frame: Nuregarasu no Miko (roughly The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden). We don’t know if it’ll ever make it beyond its native Japan yet, but it’ll be welcome if it does. Take a look.
