The Fatal Frame series is highly regarded by gamers as a great horror adventure series. Sadly, the series has been put on hold since its 2014 Wii U exclusive Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water.
During an interview with series producer Keisuke Kikuchi, we had the opportunity to ask about the series and if he can inform us of anything happening with it. Kikuchi-san began by admitting that he commented on a similar question during Tokyo Game Show that was taken a little out of context by Japanese media.
In reply to our questions, Kikuchi-san stated, “It’s public knowledge that there is a Hollywood movie in production and I’ve been the producer on all of the Fatal Frame projects, I personally and strongly wish to continue this franchise in some way. I know there are a lot of voices crying out for a new sequel. The directors and I have a few ideas about what the next title should look like, but this new project has to make sense from a business perspective for us to move forward with anything.”
He adds, “For now, I’m focused on the Atelier and Fairy Tail titles and it’s my priority to make these titles successful to lay the foundation for future projects not limited to Fatal Frame, but also the Deception series.”
So while fans might not see a new entry of the series soon, it seems that the developer is still considering working on it in the future.
Please look forward to our full interview with Keisuke Kikuchi soon.
