Gematsu reports that Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have announced a new installment of the Fatal Frame series for Wii U. No official name or release date has been announced yet, but the Wii U’s GamePad capabilities should prove to be a great fit for the “Fatal Frame” series. It is unknown whether this new Wii U title will be exclusive to Japan, but the latest installment, “Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse” was never localized.
Tecmo Koei is also planning to expand the franchise’s appeal through a live action film, comic books, and an original novel. The film, “From Kadokawa Corporation” is planned to be released in the fall, and it will be directed by Bilocation director Mari Asato.
