Fatal Frame Producer Wants to Make New Game for the Switch
Whenever the topic of scariest video games come up, is usually mentioned. The Japanese horror series has long been regarded as one of the scariest video game franchises there is, tasking players with photographing evil spirits using a special supernatural camera. It's been about five years since the release of the latest Fatal Frame game, though, and there's no word on a new entry in the long-running horror series.
However, if Fatal Frame producer Keisuke Kikuchi had his way, he would make a Fatal Frame game for the Nintendo Switch. "I think it'd be a ton of fun to play with the console in handheld mode and moving all around," Kikuchi told Nintendo Everything. It should be noted that with the Fatal Frame franchise co-owned by Nintendo, a new entry in the series would most likely have to come to the Switch.

The latest Fatal Frame game was Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water for the Wii U. Compared to other entries in the series, Maiden of Black Water received mixed reviews, with criticism aimed at its clumsy controls and weak story. Fans have no doubt been hungering for a new Fatal Frame that could return the series to its former glory, but it's unknown if Kikuchi will get the chance to work on one for the Switch or not.
Right now, Kikuchi is actually busy with the Fairy Tail RPG, and so a Fatal Frame Switch game would have to wait. But maybe in the meantime, Nintendo could bring older games in the series to the Switch. Fans may be especially interested in Fatal Frame games that weren't given a worldwide release.
As some may recall, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse only ever released on the Wii in Japan. There was also Project Zero 2: Wii Edition, a remake of Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly, that released in Japan, Europe, and Australia, but not North America. Since many Fatal Frame fans may have missed out on these games completely, they seem like they would be the perfect titles to port over to the Nintendo Switch.
For now, there are no Fatal Frame projects in development that have been officially announced. So for the time being, Nintendo Switch owners pretty much have to rely on the Resident Evil games to get their horror fix.
