Fans of limited edition offerings should keep an eye out for Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water, coming to Wii U on 30th October. From that day, Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water – trial version creeps onto Nintendo eShop, giving players the opportunity to sample action from the game’s prologue and first two chapters at no cost before choosing whether to purchase all remaining chapters. At retail, the game will only be released as the Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water – Limited Edition bundle, featuring a copy of the game in its standalone packaging, a double-sided poster, an art book, four Spirit Photographs, and a SteelBook™ cover.

Was October 30 confirmed before? This is the 1st time I've heard of the official release date.

Anyway, hoping for NoA to bring this LE. And nice of them to give a demo (NoA please do the same).

Great news. Hope it will not be too limited and/ or restricted for exclusive retailers so everyone who really wants it can get the game.
 
Awesome. Although I'm suddenly aware of how few WiiU steelbook editions there seem to have been, which is a bummer.

Still, excellent news!

Welp. Knowing that NoE's special editions tend to be really limited, I don't expect to see this in stores ever.

Two copies sold? That's not a bomb guys, stop trolling!!!
That doesn't sound like a "normal" demo. It's a trial version: you start the game, for free, then you decide if you want to buy the rest of the game. Quite interesting, I'm eager to know the price to purchase the other chapters.

Why do they actually call it Project Zero? Fatal Frame is a much better name.

Did this score well? I heard it wasn't that good.

That's right. This is even better. There were some people that thought the game might be too scary for them, so they can check it before buying now.

Why am I surprised that this wasn't for NoA? We'll likely get a digital copy and that's it. :/

Odds are we'll get a physical release, too, if Europe is. I really don't know why everyone is doubting a physical release for this game.

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much

The only physical copies of this game in Europe will be this limited edition, it's being positioned as an eShop title outside of Japan and I expect it will be the same in America.
 
Being free to start for the digital version is incredibly smart for a niche release like this. It gets people who may not really be Fatal Frame fans in to the series.

The physical release being a more expensive limit edition thing gets hardcore fans in the door at a higher price.

Great ideas on both fronts.

Wait, so there's no regular physical edition? I just want a physical game and case, nothing else =(

But I'll bite for a reasonable price.

The trailer on Nintendo UK mentions the game is English or Japanese voiceover with English, German, or French text. Was this known already?
 
Fuck it I'm just going to buy this. I heard there is custom firmware/exploit to play GameCube games on a Wii U I'm assuming this works for other region games too, right?

Damn it I thought this was for US. Severely doubt we're getting a steelbook or even a retail release at all.

The exploits are for wii mode, not aware of any region breaking for Wii U mode

Never played one of these games, but I'm going to hopefully pick this Limited Edition up. It's never really been on my radar but now that I think about the game, it could be a cool experience and I'm warming up to it. Rarely play survival horror games.

NOA are you listening? We're willing to pay cash money for a good physical LE. Make it limited and available to pre-orders only. I'm fine with that. Just give us the option, please.

You can always sell off the extras. But yeah, that's a bit more work overall if you just want the base game.

Now to play the waiting game with NoA once again.

Gamescon.

In this case it wouldn't be surprising if the game is digital-only in the US, though, considering that NoA doesn't do as much LE stuff as NoE. NoE's LEs are usually really limited as well, so it wouldn't surprise me if most people will never see the game in stores at all. Getting your hands on Nintendo's LEs can be a real pain.
