Tecmo explains Fatal Frame 4 and Rygar no-show at E3

Nintendo Wii - Fatal Frame 4 - Tecmo - Image 1Sadness might be out of the vaporware bin (thanks to Nibris‘ earlier promise to bring it to Leipzig this year), but what about Rygar: The Battle of Argus? Some of you might have expected to see that and Fatal Frame 4 gracing their presence in the Tecmo booth at this year’s E3 event. Too bad both games were a no-show – which may come as a bit of a shock to some of you since Fatal Frame 4‘s bound to be released at the end of this month already. So why a no-show? Keep those fingers on the trigger button and take a snapshot of info at the full article.

Fatal Frame 4
for the Wii is indeed a title to look out for. It’s right up there next to Sadness, perhaps. And while we’re promised to see Sadness at this year’s Leipzig Game Convention (whew!), some of your were probably hoping to hook up with some info or footage from Tecmo about Fatal Frame 4 during E3.

An email sent to Siliconera explains why Tecmo had a no-show for Fatal Frame 4. Likewise, we also finally hear an update about the MIA-since-last-year Rygar: The Battle of Argus:

Several of you asked about TecmoÂ’s other titles that have been announced in Japan which were not on display at the show. Fatal Frame 4 (Wii) will be published by Nintendo, so please contact your Nintendo PR contact for further information. Rygar: The Battle of Argus (Wii) is in development and we are planning to provide more information this fall.

The game, after all, is already set to be released at the end of July in Japan. Maybe they plan to have a media blitz during the week Fatal Frame 4 hits retails or something.

We’ve also yet to hear something from Nintendo of America. Because even as of now, there’s been no confirmation whatsoever if they’re planning to publish Fatal Frame 4 for North America.

Meanwhile, I’m pretty glad Rygar‘s gotten an update. It’s probably the closest thing we could get to a God of War for the Nintendo Wii. And prior to this, I was almost convinced it was chucked to the vaporware bin. If they’re planning to reveal more info about it by Fall of this year, that could probably spell out TGS for you.
