Check Out Fatal Frame Wii U's New 5-Minute Gameplay Video

The horror game gets a new trailer showing off its GamePad functionality.


Nintendo has published a new video showing off the upcoming Fatal Frame entry for Wii U, the fifth game in the core series.

Clocking in at just under 5 minutes, you can get a decent look at what developer Koei Tecmo has in store for fans with Fatal Frame V (known as Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen in Japan). This includes some of the uses of the GamePad, such as examining the environment and taking photos to fight off enemies, as well as some jump scares and the brand of creepy walking-in-the-woods-at-night action you can expect.

First announced earlier this year, this Wii U-exclusive horror game is planned for release in Japan later this month, on September 27. As of yet, it has not been confirmed for release outside of that country.

This is the first entry in the core Fatal Frame entry since the 2008 Wii game, which publisher Nintendo declined to release outside of Japan. More recently, the company published 3DS spin-off Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for 3DS in 2012.
