WILL THERE BE MORE FATAL FRAME REMASTERS ?
In an interview with JP Games , series director Makoto Shibata reiterated that the remastering of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is the only game that will celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary.
But there is good news for fans, as the game did not have to be available for Koei Tecmo to notice the great excitement surrounding the series. When asked about the possibility of releasing more remasters, Shibata mentioned that the response has been better than they expected.
“However, the reactions we have received from everyone have exceeded our expectations, so I would like to consider this going forward,” Shibata commented.
