Tecmo unveils Fatal Frame on Wii

Or Project Zero 4 to you and us.

Tecmo has whipped the wrappers off Fatal Frame for Wii at a press conference in Japan.

Its official title is Rei: Tsukihami no Kamen, which roughly means Fatal Frame: The Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.

According to translations from IGN, attendees were shown a two minute CG trailer. Tecmo kept the specifics to itself, mentioning only buzz words "memories", "moon" and "mask".

Stills from the footage show a lovely girl wandering around dark locations with a torch.

Nintendo will be on hand to help with the release, handling sales and promotional duties, as well as lending development aid to veteran studio Grasshopper.

Big names this time around are Keisuke Kikuchi, Makoto Shibata and sits-on-a-toilet Goichi Suda - who has just finished work on the impressive No More Heroes (review published today).

Nintendo says Rei: Tsukihami no Kamen should be out in Japan this summer.

Fatal Frame, known as Project Zero round these parts, is a suspense-focused horror title that scares the snot out of us. It has previously appeared on both Xbox and PS2 but never on a Nintendo console - making its Wii exclusivity seem a bit bizarre.
