Project Zero II gets a Wii Remake
So it’s not on the console most of us wanted but certainly the one we were expecting. Project Zero II is one of my favourite survival horror games of all time and it’s getting released on the Wii with graphical updates, revised costumes, new endings, a third person mode, and more.
While I’m excited to see the game getting a remake, I’m also saddened to see that Nintendo has yet again failed to bring Project Zero 4, officially known as Zero: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, to the west. There’s already a fan translation available for those with a Japanese copy but the problem is getting hold of a copy. I’ve been trying for the last year and a half to get one on several bidding websites but everyone’s got a price limit. I can’t justify £80 on a Wii game right now. Sad face…
The above screen shows the major graphical changes with the new version (above, left) looking much prettier. I’m not sure I like the change in costumes however. Seems like a cheap attempt as showing off more skin, especially Mio, who appears to have also earned a substantial upgrade in the booby department.
Apart from the awful new voice cast, hopefully Project Zero II Wii Edition will remain super scary throughout. It’s heading to Europe on June 29th which is the same day as the 3DS spin off game Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir.
