The excitement goes up with the exit of Fatal Frame today
Project Zero in Europe and Australia, named Fatal Frame in North America and Zero (零 ~Zero ~) In Japan, is a series of Survival Horror video games edited by Tecmo, started in 2001. The first game of the series, Project Zero, came out in 2001 on PlayStation 2 and 2002 on Xbox. Five main episodes are out, on PlayStation 2, Xbox, Wii or Wii U, as well as a derivative on Nintendo 3DS.
The series is centered around Japanese folklore, ghosts, exorcism and shinto rituals. The player is involved in a mysterious quest, during which he has to solve many puzzles and defend himself against ghosts. It has for this a camera with supernatural properties.
Especially appreciated in Japan, the Project Zero series is sometimes compared to another series of video games of the same type, Silent Hill. A cinematographic adaptation was announced at E3 2002. It was to be carried out by John Rogers of Dreamworks. Finally it is the Japanese director husband Asato who realizes the movie Gekijōban Zero (劇場版 零 ~ ~ ~), released in September 2014.
In 2012, Nintendo bought the licenses and video games of Project Zero (Fatal Frame) and its spin-off: Spirit Camera in Koei Tecmo.

It s huge for the Japanese horror franchise because no fatal frame game has been out of any platform that Nintendo for years. And it s also a victory since a previous game, Fatal Frame iv: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse and the Remake of Fatal Frame: Deep Crimson Butterfly (also known as Project Zero 2: Wii Edition) were out only on Nintendo platforms. Despite the positive welcome of the fans. However, there has been no promise from other new remasters of the fatal fragry game. But, there is a possibility if the reissue works well from a new fatal title Frame if it works well. The long-standing fans, as well as new fans, can only hope that this is true and materialize.
It can be helpful that there are bonuses for those who pre-ordered or buy the game early on any platform. For those who have pre-ordered their copy of Fatal Frame, they will also gain two coins of suit in the form of hats, including a witch hat (perfect for Halloween!). The other gives the character a camera obscura (although they call it a hat). But for those who are too late for the pre-order, do not worry: there is an anticipated purchase bonus until 11 November an exclusive Yuri costume of a suit and a Ryza hat. Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water costs 39.99 on all platforms, but there is a luxury editing of the game that includes the costumes of the old Prumpist and the 20th anniversary digital artbook for $ 54.99. For those who love the characters of the series, not to mention ghosts, it s a must.
