Fatal Frame IV Countdown! (For Japan) : 24 days , 2 hours ,52 minutes. (Taken at 9.07pm GMT : +8 , Sunday 6th July 2008)

At the 2007 Tokyo Game Show Tecmo announced through 1up.com that the fourth Fatal Frame game is in the works. Currently, the game is to be released to the Wii console and is being made in conjunction with the help of Grasshopper Manufacturer. This information is accurate.

The game's name is Rei: Tsukihami no Kamen aka zero: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse
It will be released to the Wii console.
Tecmo is hoping for a summer 2008 release date.
The image colour of the game is yellow.
The main keywords are memory, moon, and mask.
The location appears to be an abandoned western house.
Something concerning retrieving lost memories.

OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION: Yes Amano Tsukiko *IS* in fact doing the themesong for Fatal Frame IV.The song is called Zero no Chouritsu [ゼロの調律] (Chouritsu means 'tune' like in tuning an instrument) So the 'unofficial' translation is Tuning Zero or Zero's Tune. The single will be released July 30th (a day prior to the release of Zero: Tsukihame no Kamen in Japan).

Better known as Project Zero over here, the Fatal Frame games have established themselves as the byword for suspense-filled horror.

There are no showers of blood or shotguns, no hideous demons with heads attached to their backsides, and definitely no musclebound heroes called Jack.

Instead, you play as a fragile-looking Japanese schoolgirl and are only ever armed with a flashlight and a special camera that can exorcise the ghosts that haunt whatever spooky location it is that you find yourself in. The games are superb.

Tentatively subtitled Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse, the fourth Fatal Frame outing arrives in Japan at the end of July and fresh details emerging from its native land suggest that it'll be every bit as brilliant yet bum-clenchingly terrifying as its predecessors.

The game is set on the 'mysterious' Rougetsu Island, home to a haunted mansion (who'd have thought it) where five girls from the same family were kidnapped when they were small children. We presume they're sisters.

My name is Ruka

Two of the girls died after leaving the island, but some years later the other three decide to return and solve the mystery of their kidnap.

You'll play as Ruka, but if the other games are anything to go by, there'll be sections where you play as one of the other two girls. You'll probably be able to hear the petrifying screams of the others girls echoing around the mansion.

Fatal Frame IV - more details

- takes place on Rougetsutou island (fictional)
- setting is a half-western half-Japanese hotel. Hotel was previously a sanatorium.
- mystical ceremony was performed every 10 years to worship the moon, but ceremonies stopped for unknown reasons
- 5 young girls were abducted and taken to the island, but were recovered by a detective. None of the girls remember what happened on the island
- story takes place several years later when 3 girls return to the island to try and figure out what happened
- 3 girls are the main characters
- subtitle “Mask of the Lunar Eclipse” refers to a mask used during the ritual that erases memories
- concept remains the same as the rest of the series, but game play has been ‘dramatically improved’
- Move the character with the nunchuk, direct the flashlight with the remote
- pointer is not used, just the motions of moving a flashlight
- Third Person, behind-the-back camera
- walk/run while moving the flashlight around
- eastern and western influences were used because they better flow with the type of camera, and make the game flow better
- character has been sped up, walks more quickly. This is due to complaints about earlier installments in the series
- vibration, Wiimote speaker used to further enhance the experience
- Nintendo/Grasshopper/Tecmo collaboration worked well, but it was hard to take into account all the differing opinions.
- full of bonus content
- dev team says this is easily the best entry in the series
