Proving once again that Japan gets all the cool stuff, the upcoming Wii U Fatal Frame sequel is to be accompanied by a Fatal Frame feature film, both of which are currently exclusive to the island nation. Though entirely in Japanese, the above trailer does offer hope that the film's creators...

A dedicated team of homebrewers has done what Nintendo and Tecmo never did: translate Fatal Frame IV. A team at Fatal Frame fansite Beyond the Camera's Lens has released a patch that swaps out the Japanese text in the Tecmo/Nintendo/Grasshopper Manufacture-developed Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar...

Since first whispered eerily in our ears, we've been eager to have our pants scared off by the Tecmo/Grasshopper Manufacture collaboration, Fatal Frame IV. Now it seems like our slacks will be staying firmly buttoned. While Nintendo published the Wii-exclusive in Japan, the company has no intention...

All we've heard about the release of Fatal Frame IV in the US is that Nintendo apparently isn't publishing it. According to retailer Play.com and Official Nintendo Magazine (via reports on NeoGAF and also this sliver of a scan found on GoNintendo), the Tecmo/Grasshopper Manufacture survival horror ...

Because it's not a Nintendo event if it isn't followed by "where's (Game X)" questions, Kombo cornered Reggie Fils-Aime at yesterday's conference and asked him about the status of North American versions of Disaster: Day of Crisis and Fatal Frame IV. While nobody expected concrete dates or even con...

Okay, let's try our best to forget about all the bad stuff that's recently been revealed about Fatal Frame IV, and concentrate on what the game does best: scaring people like us who can't resist watching/playing it absolutely witless. With this in mind, we'd like you to do something for us....

We've been riding the Fatal Frame IV hype train as enthusiastically as any other site in recent months. The Tecmo/Grasshopper Manufacture crossover has long looked beautiful, engrossing, and hiding-behind-the-sofa scary. Furthermore, it's being published by Nintendo, which more or less guarantees...

Tecmo took advantage of their new association with Nintendo in one of the funniest ways possible: Nintendo character outfits in Fatal Frame IV. Should you want to punch a hole straight through the creepy atmosphere in Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, these two costumes will do the trick nicely. At the...

We've been keeping a secret. You see, we're absolutely scared to death of Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse. That's not going to stop us from picking the game up and playing the crap out of it though. We just felt we needed to share that with you all. The above video for the game does a...

Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse (or Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen) is out this week in Japan, which means it's an excellent time for a batch of new screens. And while these seem a little downgraded from some of what we've seen before, they've still got one major thing going for them: the creep...

Missing Fatal Frame IV at E3? Some news about the Nintendo-published, Tecmo/Grasshopper Manufacture-developed horror sequel would have been welcome in an E3 characterized by screaming about a lack of "core" games. Fatal Frame, with its long history of making you want to keep the lights on while pl...

Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse might not be an E3-related goodie, but truthfully, it's probably one of the best things we've seen this week. In the video above you can watch a trailer for this spine-chilling, oh-man-it-will-definitely-be-super-scary game, which is sure to please some ...

After reaching for the lightswitch and squinting over Fatal Frame IV media, Nintendo has updated the official website by adding new screens and character profiles. It seems Fatal Frame just isn't scary unless it stars tiny, innocent-looking girls, and this latest installment has three of them. The ...

New screens of Fatal Frame IV have appeared on Famitsu's site, coinciding with the launch of the game's official site. Our verdict? They're all rather lovely, but terribly dark. Yes, we fully appreciate that traipsing about in pitch black darkness while being scared witless is a key part of the F...

Grim. Dingy. Grimy. Dilapidated. No, we're not referring to the more picturesque parts of Fanboy Towers (though could well be), but to the environments found in Fatal Frame IV. The latest edition of Famitsu has some of the first gameplay shots from the Tecmo/Grasshopper Manufacture collaboration,...

Since being announced last September for the Wii, publisher Tecmo has been eerily quiet concerning Fatal Frame 4. Still, with this latest experiment in little girls, cameras, and giving us nightmares being handled by Goichi Suda and his team at Grasshopper Manufacture, we've remained more than a li...

We're not going to lie, the images from Grasshopper's upcoming Wii take on the Fatal Frame series look really good. In fact, the screens (captured at French site Wiiz) look so good, we're thinking these are probably lifted from cut scenes, as opposed to any real gameplay. For our part, we're jus...

Months after announcing a new installment to its survival-horror/photography game, Tecmo unveiled a two-minute CG trailer for Fatal Frame IV (Rei: Tsukihami no Kame) and discussed a few specifics behind the spooky title. The video hasn't yet been released, but you can peek at screen grabs from th...
