Spirit Camera Result Of Rejected Fatal Frame Port

Spirit Camera Result Of Rejected Fatal Frame Port

Spirit Camera:The Cursed Memoir, the collaboration between Nintendo and Tecmo, was orginally proposed as a Fatal Frame port for the Nintendo 3DS but was rejected by Satoru Iwata. During an Iwata Asks interview with three members from the development team of Spirit Camera, Iwata revealed his reasoning behind his decision to reject the port.

The reason I didn’t give the first proposal an okay was because in my mind horror games should have fairly rich graphics and good sound, and you make the room dark and concentrate on them alone. I felt like if you made a game for the Nintendo 3DS system based on that home console concept, no matter how many new features you pack in, it would be a watered down version of the console version.

Nintendo was also very persistent in regards to implementing AR technology in Spirit Camera, which could have also led to the turndown. Another reason that may have led to Iwata’s decision is that there is already an enhanced port of Fatal Frame: Crimson Butterfly in development for the Wii which will hit stores later this year.

Would you have rather seen a port of Fatal Frame on the 3DS or are you satisfied with Iwata’s decision? Sound off in the comments section below.
