In a conversation with Nintendo Everything, Keisuke Kikuchi, Koei Tecmo’s trademark producer and Project Zero series leader among others, expressed interest in a new offshoot of the horror spectacle for the Nintendo Switch. Mr. Kikuchi already has a fun concept in mind that involves moving the Nintendo Switch console around in handheld mode. At the moment the producer’s hands are tied, as he has to ensure the completion of the FAIRY TAIL-RPG, which will be developed for the Nintendo Switch among others. However, he assures that he will gladly take care of Project Zero again.
Since the third part – the Japan-exclusive Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen – the gruesome adventures of Koei Tecmo have been among the many series created under Nintendo’s wing. The first contact with the Project Zero series on Nintendo consoles will probably have been with Project Zero 2: Wii Edition, which, thanks to new content, provided a creepy summer in 2012. Then followed Wii U with Project Zero: Priestess of the Black Water, the fifth and so far last part of horror, to coincide with Halloween 2015. Yuri Kozukata, a main character from the fifth part, also appears as a helper trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where she causes disaster with her Camera Obscura. By the way, the series name differs depending on the region: We call it Project Zero, in Japan only Zero and in America they use the name Fatal Frame.
