Tecmo announces Fatal Frame II for Xbox

Tecmo plans to release an enhanced Xbox version of its survival horror sequel in time for Halloween.


Tecmo has announced that it plans to release an Xbox version of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly in time for Halloween this year. The game will boast a number of features not found in the PlayStation 2 original, including additional gameplay modes, new unlockable costumes, extra locations, a tougher final boss, and improved graphics and 5.1 channel sound.

In Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly, you'll assume the role of a young girl named Mio Amakura who is gifted with a strong sixth sense. The game's plot sees Mio and her twin sister becoming trapped in an abandoned village where they are forced to deal with demonic ghosts and spirits using a camera-based combat system. The village in the Xbox version will feature locations not found in the PS2 game for you to explore, and it will also be frequented by a number of additional ghosts.

New gameplay modes in the Xbox version of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly will include an action-oriented survival mode in which you battle ghosts one after another, as well as a first-person mode that, since the camera limits your awareness of things going around you, promises to deliver an even more terrifying experience.

We'll bring you more information on the Xbox version of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly once the E3 doors are open and we've had a chance to visit Tecmo's booth.
