The Wii U version of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water caused a number of controversies. The game was initially planned as a Nintendo-published exclusive in Japan and Europe, prompting a social media campaign to get the game released locally. Nintendo eventually relented, but the game was only offered as a digital release in North America. The North American release also replaced some skimpier alternate outfits with costumes inspired by Samus Aran and Zelda, prompting some claims that the game was being censored. Those Nintendo-inspired costumes were actually pretty cool, but it's unclear if they will return for the Nintendo Switch version.
A lot has changed since the Wii U era, and Nintendo has found an incredible amount of success with the Switch platform. A lot of Wii U exclusives have found much bigger followings on Switch and other consoles, and it's not hard to imagine Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water doing just that. Fans can find out for themselves when the game releases later this year!
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is set to release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
