Haunting Ground coming to PS2 Classics?

by on Jul.29, 2012, under News

The ESRB has rated Haunting Ground, a PS2 survival horror game from Capcom, for the Playstation 3 – suggesting a PSN re-release is happening.

In Haunting Ground, players assume the role of Fiona in her attempt to escape a castle inhabited by some pretty creepy people intent on chasing and attacking the young lady. Your time in the castle is spent solving puzzles, evading and hiding from pursuers and generally running about in fear – being fearful for long enough triggers Panic Mode where players must endure a blurry screen and other unsettling visual effects along with controller vibrations in time with Fiona’s heartbeat. You do have Hewie though; a white German Sheppard that Fiona befriends and can command to help you out with a bit of growling, barking, biting, and such.

Hopefully, PAL regions will also see Haunting Ground as a PS2 Classic in the near future.

Project Zero 2: Wii Edition scares Europe in June

by on Apr.14, 2012, under News

The Wii remake of the far too creepy survival horror game Fatal Frame: Crimson Butterfly (known as Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly in PAL regions) is coming to Europe. Titled Project Zero 2: Wii Edition, the game’s release is set for June 29 – the same day as the 3DS Fatal Frame spin-off, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir.

Project Zero 2: Wii Edition will feature updated graphics, a new third person camera view, some additional endings and story episodes, revised maps for more scares and the Wii remote will act as a flashlight pointer (hooray!).

A Haunted House mode has also been included, with local multiplayer in mind. There are several courses through the Haunted House to explore, but events are random. Your friends can frighten you by making ghosts appear (using a second Wii remote), while the game measures how much fear you experience.

With the fourth installment of the series, Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, not seeing a release outside of Japan, perhaps Project Zero 2: Wii Edition can satisfy fans’ yearning for more Fatal Frame. There are no currently plans for a western release of Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, however an unofficial English translation patch has been released for the game.
