No US Release For Fatal Frame Wii

Nintendo of America has decided not to release the Wii version of horror game Fatal Frame in the US. Fatal Frame is a series of games where you must defend yourself from ghosts using a the mystical Camera Obscura. It's had 3 releases for the Playstation 2, and 4 game has been released in Japan for the Wii on July 31, 2008.

IGN interviewed Tecmo over Nintendo's decision not to release the game stateside. They had this to say,

"Nintendo holds the publishing rights to 'Fatal Frame Wii,' which was developed by Tecmo LTD. and Grasshopper Manufacture and released in Japan on July 31, 2008. Nintendo of America has since then decided not to publish the title in North America – consequently, the title will not be released in this territory. As the owner of the IP, Tecmo feels very unfortunate that the fans of the series in North America will not have a chance to play the game, but respects the final decision made by Nintendo of America."

I'm a big fan of the Fatal Frame series and was looking forward to this one. Had it actually been released it probably would of been the first Wii game I have actually purchased since buying a Wii on release day. Nintendo continues to disappoint Wii owners with continued releases of "party games" and now not releasing a game people actually want to play.

I suggest all fans of the Fatal Frame series contact Nintendo of America and let them know how much you want this game to actually be released here in the states. You can contact Nintendo through their website Contact Form
