If you happen to be a fan of creepy movies such as The Grudge, then you'll love this upcoming game created by Koei Tecmo. If you own a Wii U, then chances are you have heard about a video game entitled Fatal Frame. If you're not familiar with the title, let me take some time to catch you up. Fatal Frame is a horror adventure game that will act as a sequel to the previous titles, which were released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox consoles back in 2001 and 2002.

Players will take on the role of Kozukata Yuuri, one of the main protagonists from the Fatal Frame series. Her goal is to reach Mount Hikamiyama, also known as “The Mountain of Death”. In order for her to complete this long and exhausting journey, she must take advantage of her ability to see spirits. So, if you're into creepy adventure games, this title might be right up your alley.

This week's eShop brought some Wii U players extremely disappointing news. People with certain Wii U systems, a console with an 8 GB system and no external hard drive, will not have the opportunity to purchase and play Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water due to it being too large. Black Water is allowing users to download a trial version of the game which allows you to access the beginning of the game, which will require at least 9964.8 MB.

You may be thinking to yourself, isn't the size of the title going to be reduced after installation? Well, yes it is. However, it still requires people to have either a 32 GB Wii U or an external hard drive. Also, according to the eShop, even people who own the 32 GB system will be forced to delete games for space. Shockingly, this isn't the first time Nintendo has run into this issue. Let's just hope, somehow-someway, they will fix this little dilemma.

Im not sure why fans are surprised. The 8gb console is a POS. (Im speaking from experience) It's not even usable without an external drive due to the system OS and initial update filling up 95% of the HDD on the 8gb model

Only morons bought the 8GB version. This does not surprise me in the slightest.

That's the equivalent to buying an xbox without a hard drive and buying a 2 disc game, and expecting to be able to play it...
