Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water

Limited Run Games has been bringing digital games to physical media in limited quantity. Their most recent release was Odd World: New and Tasty for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. There has been some buzz on their Twitter over the past month where fans were asking them for a Fatal Frame 5 physical release in North America.

For those who don’t know, Fatal Frame 5 released on the Wii U physically in the European region, but only made it to the eShop in the North American region. Fans urged Nintendo to rethink the digital approach due to the size of the game and the lack of memory on certain Wii U SKUs. We even assisted Operation Zero on their campaign to get fans together to voice their opinion. Sadly, the game stayed a digital-only release in North America.

Now that we have Limited Run Games, many fans have been tweeting them asking for a Fatal Frame 5 physical release. The company had been pretty vague in their responses up until yesterday, when they revealed what seems like a real attempt to try and make this happen:

So there you have it: there might be hope for a physical edition of Fatal Frame 5. What do you think about Limited Run Games and will you support them if they decide to go through with this? Let us know in the comments below and let them know if you are one of the fans that would purchase a Fatal Frame 5 physical copy.

We got to interview Limited Run Games at Pax East 2016. We will have that posted next week.
