Its rare I post here, but unfortunately I need help. With Nintendo's <censored> decision not to release Fatal Frame outside of Japan, I need a way to play it. Importing its the easy part, playing it isnt thanks to Nintendo. Is it still possible to play imports on the Wii now? I have no idea what my firmware is, I just know there was another forced system update that came with Broken Sword, so whatever that was.

From reading Datels page, freeloader doesnt work now. Would my best option be just importing a Japanese Wii? Whats your thoughts, suggestions guys.

You'll probably have to import a Japanese Wii.

Moved to Planet Nintendo.

Check the firmware by:

If its 4.0, then you're screwed, If not I think you can jailbreak it (hack it) and add a program that makes it region free.

You'll need an SD Card (and an sd card reader to use the it on your computer) and Twilight Princess for Wii.


Use the Twilight Hack for 3.4 to install The HomeBrew Channel. Then simply load the Apps Package onto your sd card (includes Gecko Region Free- which is what you want) and you're set! :)

If none of those links work, they're all right here.

Also- if you get 4.0, there is a hack coming that uses an exploit in the SD Card menu.

Well I ordered the game off ebay atleast. Its not actually called Fatal Frame in Japan, its called New Zero: Tsukihami no Kamen (you can see how I made a mistake), so I just need something to play it when it eventually arrives. >_<

I thought Fatal Frame 4 was being released in Europe. Do you have a U.S. Wii?

Its not being released in the states or Europe. So I'd need a Japanese Wii atleast. I have a PAL Wii.

I'm finding conflicting reports online. I don't see the game at game.co.uk or Amazon UK, but there is this story about it showing up in an Italian GameStop database as "Zero: A Japanese Ghost Story." Also there's at least one person who says he's already preordered it in Italy.

And there are magazine ads for the game, as well. Hmmm. For me, I'd only buy it if they fixed the controls to make the flashlight controllable with the Wiimote and making turning not based on motions, anyways. Have you heard about Silent Hill: Shattered Memories? That game knows how to use a flashlight on Wii. :)

Yes. Im a huge fan of SH in general. I'm hoping if this sells well enough, they will remake 2 aswell (which is widely known as the best in the series)
