As announced during E3, Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is getting a second chance at life later this year.

The Wii U exclusive will be remastered for all major platforms on October 28, although sadly it’s still digital-only in the West.

While I have Maiden of Black Water on the Wii U, I was thrilled to see the news because it increases the chances that the Fatal Frame series will make a comeback… and it sounds like Koei Tecmo wants that, as well.

According to Siliconera, Fatal Frame producer Keisuke Kikuchi said in an interview with Famitsu that the performance of the upcoming remaster could help pave the way for future Fatal Frame games.

In particular, by releasing it on multiple platforms to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary, they hope to bring it to many more players and “connect it to the next title.”

So Fatal Frame is still alive! Not only is the latest entry being remastered, but there’s a good chance we could still see a Fatal Frame VI!
