The subsequent Deadly Body involves Wii U in Japan on September 27, greater than six years after the collection’ final absolutely-fledged entry. Nintendo and developer Koei Tecmo introduced the primary snapshot of the brand new horror recreation in a livestream this morning, revealing its Japanese title as Zero: Nuregarasu no Miku.
Siliconera interprets that as Deadly Body: The Black-Haired Shrine Maiden, whereas Gematsu goes with The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden. Both approach, it is a few lady with darkish hair, she’s received a digital camera, and we nonetheless do not know if it is headed West or not. In any case, Deadly Body four solely got here to Japan, so localization does not appear too doubtless.
Like numerous Japanese horror, water is a outstanding theme in Zero: Nuregarasu no Miku. The sport’s mountain setting, Hikamiyama, is a moist place filled with damp places, and in J-horror phrases that makes it the right dwelling for ghosts. As Gematsu stories, Hikamiyama is the place individuals who select to die go. There, through the witching hour, they depart the world of the dwelling and transfer throughout to the aircraft of the lifeless.
The sport’s protagonist is Yuuri Kozukata, the “raven-haired shrine maiden” who has the power to see souls who’ve been taken to the spirit aircraft, and even convey them again to the world of the dwelling. After receiving a request to discover a specific misplaced soul, Kozukata heads to the mountain, the place it seems every part’s pretty and there are undoubtedly no terrifying ghosts about. Maybe.
Luckliy, she has her digital camera handy, or within the participant’s case the GamePad. Gematsu says gamers can use the pill like a digital camera however augmented to point out issues you possibly can’t usually see on display, like – you guessed it – ghostly issues. Siliconera provides it may also be used to struggle off enemies not directly, however precisely how is not clear.
If this all has you hankering for a Western launch, do not surrender hope. The Deadly Body 2 remake on Wii might haven’t hit North American shores, however it did arrive in Australia and Europe. And whereas it was a by-product and never a essential Deadly Body entry, Tecmo Koei’s Spirit Digital camera: The Cursed Memoir on 3DS did come to each Europe and North America in 2012.
