Tecmo has been silent about Fatal Frame for some time now, but that doesn't mean the horror franchise has been forgotten. To the contrary, 1UP learned at Tokyo Game Show that Tecmo's enlisted the help of Grasshopper Interactive to produce the next Fatal Frame game. And here's the kicker: it's for Wii.

Grasshopper will start on Fatal Frame when work on No More Heroes, recently announced for a US release via Ubisoft, has finished. Given that No More Heroes was developed on Wii, Grasshopper seems content on Nintendo's console.


Taking photographs of ghouls has been a part of Fatal Frame since day one, so motion controls certainly make sense for the series, but the last we heard about the next Fatal Frame seemed to have Microsoft and Sony's consoles in mind. "I already have some ideas that I'd like to do if I had more development time and a more powerful system," said Fatal Frame 3 Producer Keisuke Kikuchi all the way back in July 2005.

Then again, in 2005, no one knew Wii was going to blow up, either.
Searched couldn't find.

Awesome *drools*

Loved Project Zero series, this should be hella good as well!!

Fatal Frame for the Wii is a no-brainer decision and one that should have been made long before now. Still, it's nice to see that it's in the pipeline.

There's not many companies that I'll simply buy a game from just because they made it. Grasshopper have a style that I just adore, I'll be buying this for sure, and all the 2.4 reviews in the world couldn't stop me.

Oh shit...

Fatal Frame 2: Director's cut on the Xbox is one of the scariest experiences I've ever had, video game or not.

If they keep it in First person with the Wiimote = Camera Obscura and Flashlight, this could be awesome.

EDIT: And this better not be just some Rygar-type situation with Wiimote control tacked on.

I'm going to assume it's to fund the PS3/360 project according to the original developers comments.

Grasshopper actually have previous experience in this field, somewhat. Michigan for the PS2 involved you playing as a cameraman covering a bizarre pseudo-survival horror type storyline. The twist was that the game actually rewarded leading your NPC colleagues into gory or "erotic" situations.

So I take it all you guys who love Grasshopper do not mind that the original team for this series wont be working on it?

This is the first time I've seen a game move to a new dev and people rejoice :D
That's probably because most people in this topic, including my-self, have played Killer 7 and not a single Fatal Frame game (although I did know what it was if that counts for anything :lol).

Holy fuck! This is going to be awesome. I love Fatal Frame.
They could do some cool things with the camera and controller.

I've never played Fatal Frame, but i'll hang around this thread to hear the usual suspects whine about it not being on HD consoles.

was fatal frame any good?
To some it was, to me it sucked and wasn't scary at all, but............ alot of people seem to like it, enough people to warrent a 4th installment, so it must be something, but I personally didn't like 1 or 2, not bashing them at all, they just were not my cup of tea, I am the Silent Hill & Resident Evil guy.

I've never played any of the Fatal Frame games (I only owned a PS2 for about 6 months, no particular reason that I didn't get the Xbox versions). They seemed pretty interesting, so having the forth game be on the Wii would be pretty cool.

That's good.

I'm still hoping for some big announcements. I want a big 3rd party franchise with Wii controls.

Even a RE 5 side story would do, using the RE4 engine.
