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.
