Tomonobu Itagaki didn’t have anything to do with Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden. However, he seems to think that the Wii U game will be released “in many countries.”
Itagaki wrote on Facebook recently:
“Hey guys, I strongly believe that Kikuchi Keisuke (producer) will release the Fatal Frame V in America, in many countries. He and me have same philosophy from Tecmo days. That’s what I can say for now. I want you guys to read between the lines.
Anyway I will play this game ”.
Don’t take this as any sort of confirmation that the new Fatal Frame is coming to North America and Europe. Still, Itagaki’s words are interesting. You have to wonder why he feels so “strongly” that it will come outside of Japan.
