Operation Zero – First Trailer and title of new Fatal Frame for Wii U Revealed/Overseas Release a Possibility

Operation Zero

Tecmo-Koei and Nintendo released the debut trailer of the new Fatal Frame for the Wii U last night through niconico, Nintendo Everything did a fly-by-night translation of the conference and came across some interesting details. Seven of them in particular stood out to me.

1. The full title is Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (or literally Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden), it hits 9/27/2014 in Japan.

2. The three elements of a Zero/Fatal Frame game: ghosts that can come from anywhere, old Japanese houses, and the camera itself are all present.

3. The concept for the game is all about water, places with lots of flowing water such as a river, waterfall, etc. will be present, it seems to have plenty of outdoor arenas.

4. You will use the GamePad to take pictures.

5. Main character’s name is Yuri Kagemi Kozukata. – She has the ability to look for people who have been taken into the ghost world and possibly bring them back to the world of the living. Kinda like a psychic medium in a way.

6. The game’s volume will be the biggest in the entire series; lots of work being put in meaning the game itself could be a long one, bigger than Fatal Frame 3: The Tormented on PS2? It’s a possibility.

7. AnJu is doing the ending theme, titled “Higanbana” the song is about the line between life and death, seems to have a positive kind of message behind it, meant to represent reuniting with loved ones, warmth, love, etc.

The debut trailer for the game itself was also released and can be seen here: Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden – Announcement Trailer

More info will be coming in the near future, and of course you bet Operation Zero will be all over it. There was a tweet done by a member that actually gave us hope that an overseas release could very much be a reality. It can be read here: https://twitter.com/makoto_shibata/status/489696336594214912

Operation Zero: First Promotional Image of Fatal Frame 5 Released

Fatal Frame 5 RealGamerNewz

Word is traveling around the ‘net thanks to 4gamer (a Japanese gaming site), NeoGAF and Beyond the Camera’s Lens, that along with promotions for the Fatal Frame movie that’s coming out in Japan 9/26/14, a promotional teaser image of Fatal Frame 5 in development for the Wii U has been released. The picture shows the four women that were featured in Fatal Frames 1 through 4 with a shadowy view of what could possibly be the new protagonist to be featured in Fatal Frame 5, it doesn’t show gameplay, but it does lead to speculation on the story like no one’s business. It looks extremely interesting, and definitely generates buzz for the game. Personally, as a huge fan of this franchise, the possibilities of where the story will go and what it will entail are beyond exciting and lend themselves to some interesting discussions. We will be keeping afoot of any news about the game and as always, we encourage you to join Operation Zero‘s Official Facebook page.

Operation Zero is Seeking the Localization of the New Fatal Frame Installment on Nintendo Wii U

Editor’s Note: Operation Zero is a push from the video games community numbering over 1,900 strong so far on Facebook alone, and is currently entering its next phase. Gamers who want to see the Fatal Frame series localized to the Nintendo Wii U console including the New Fatal Frame Installment are urged to participate in this scheduled and planned Call In / Write-In efforts but must follow the guidelines below in order to be kind to the creators involved in making the games we all love. Below is that set of rules. This post was created for the purpose of peacefully requesting the following projects be developed and to prove that demand for those projects exists:

Check out Operation Zero for the facts about Fatal Frame Wii U localization

(including the Petition)

And then use the instructions below to Request Nintendo’s Cooperation

Hi everyone, as you all know we at Operation Zero are planning our first write-in/call-in to Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe. This event is scheduled for the week of June 16 – 20, literally right after all the events of E3 are done. You’ll note that we’re doing a slightly different approach in how we go about this; there is good reason behind it. Please allow me to explain.

If we were to dedicate a deadline day to all time zones in the US, and possibly Europe too, it makes keeping track of things too much for all in the community to bear. That means we’d have to coordinate sending letters in across several different time zones and (in the case of Europe) across the world. With this new format, we don’t need to worry about this anymore. We can all take our time, do what we need to do, and get our letters out and our calls in by the last day of the aforementioned week.

With that being said, we have but a few simple rules for everyone to follow. This will apply to our current write-in/call-in campaign as well as any future campaigns we intend to do of this nature.

1. Be polite – remember, we’re not just writing for ourselves, we’re writing for all Fatal Frame fans, and as such, we need to act accordingly. That means we should try and keep ranting and cursing at a minimum both in our letters and especially when speaking to a representative on the phone.

2. Say thank you – This is important, especially if you’re talking to a representative. Remember, you’re representing not just yourselves, but our campaign group as a whole. The least we can do after talking to someone from Nintendo is to thank them for their time.

3. Be Creative – If you want to send in artwork or photos of your collection of games, feel free to do so; in fact, it is highly encouraged that you all show us your chops. There aren’t any rules on what you can or can’t submit, but make sure your artwork is tasteful and fits the Fatal Frame universe.

4. Be specific – the goal of this campaign is to endorse enthusiasm for the upcoming Fatal Frame Wii-U title. Make sure you present this goal in both your calls and in your letters, otherwise Nintendo may not get the message we’re attempting to convey.

5. Keep a positive attitude – Let’s try and put our personal feelings towards Nintendo aside during this campaign. Regardless of how dissatisfied you are with them, this is a professional campaign. Negative attitudes or approaches will reflect poorly upon not just our campaign, but the Fatal Fame fanbase as a whole. I cannot stress how important this is, as it will affect our mobility moving forward.

We at Operation Zero want you all to know that we’re very excited to start this campaign, and look forward to seeing what response Nintendo will give us. Remember – don’t be discouraged; any response is a good response, even if it’s nothing at all. This campaign is to increase our exposure, and to let Nintendo know we exist as well as our intentions. Any and all contributions are helpful, no matter how big or small. One call, one letter is all it takes to make all the difference in the world. We can only make this happen as a group—not as individuals. Let’s see to it our message gets through. As always, we encourage all of you to like Operation Zero’s Official Facebook Page.

Contact Information for Nintendo of America and Nintendo of Europe will be listed HERE.

Inazuma Eleven – Nintendo 3DS Review

IE1_Screen4_TopBottom

Inazuma Eleven is a unique soccer RPG game that is developed by Level-5. It has combines RPG elements and the game of soccer into it to blend it into a very great mix. Players who are fans of RPGs or soccer will have a very fun experience while playing this game.

Inazuma Eleven is originally from a manga that is created by Tenya Yabuno. It has also been made into an anime on TV Tokyo. The story of Inazuma follows a middle-schooler named Mark Evans, who is a very talented goalkeeper that is the captain of the soccer club at his school, Raimon Middle School. His team never gets to play any games because they only have 7 players and in soccer the rules state that you need a team of 11. After meeting Axel Blaze, who is a very talented forward moves into Mark’s town, he searches for more students to join the soccer club so that they can face other schools and ultimately win the Soccer Frontier Internationals, the biggest soccer championship.

The game is broken into 10 chapters, which have two different elements on how it is played. The first one is your traditional RPG style. Players can walk around and go into different parts into the city to get certain items or advance into the story. They can also equip each soccer player with different equipment to boost different stats. Players will also be able to get random 4 vs 4 soccer battles while walking around. There are said to be close to 1000 soccer players available for you to scout students from your school or recruit students from other schools that you have defeated onto your soccer team. So players can switch and change their team anyway they want to create the perfect team for their own personal style.

Now the main part of this game is the actual soccer matches that the player will encounter. The way that this game plays this is by using the bottom screen of the 3DS and the stylus. The controls are not hard to master but it will take a match or two to understand how its work being that this is a unique way of playing a game. Players will control their team by using the stylus to run in certain directions, dodge or attack the opponents, and to take a shot at the goal. Another unique thing that is usable in the soccer matches is that each character can learn special moves. There are 4 types. Shooting moves, Keeper moves, Dribble moves, and Blocking moves. Each character can learn different moves that can be bought at stores or learned by leveling up. But certain characters have unique moves that other characters cannot get at all. Such as Mark’s “God Hand” keeper move or Axel’s “Fire Tornado” shooting move. Some moves that will be learned later in the game will require 2 or 3 characters in order to be done.

Inazuma Eleven Fan Art

This game was originally on the Nintendo DS and never released in the United States but it has been enhanced for the 3DS. The game also has a multiplayer mode where you can have a match or trade players locally with a friend. Players can buy different uniforms for their team while playing multiplayer. There is a lot of replay value in this game and it’s great that the music in the game is very good. The game took me 22 and a half hours to complete and even when it is done there is still much more that players can do within the game. One of the downsides of the game is that it doesn’t really utilize the 3D effects as much as some other games on the 3DS lineup. Only time you can use it is when the players are watching special moves being used. But most of the time the 3D effects are off.

Final Verdict:

Inazuma Eleven is a very fun game and an enjoyable experience. There was a lot that has liked about the game and not a lot that is bad with it. After playing this I will be looking into watching the anime and reading the manga. I give this game a 9 out of 10 making it an RGN Gold Game.

Official Trailer:

Overall Score: 9 / 10

RGN Rating: Gold Game

Developer / Publisher: Level-5
