TheJake : (31 May 2019 - 09:27 PM) In FF4, are spirit points only used for the shop?  It seems like you just need these crystals for upgrades, but I'm not 100% sure. :P

Sorry but I've been out of the loop for a while. With FF5 apparently coming out of Japan (well, I'll believe it when I see it) has there been any news about localising FF4?

No and I dont think it will, even with the whole virtual console thing I think we should be grateful of a main series game (a recent one) is getting localized and not be greedy by forgetting about Fatal Frame 4. I'm surprised the game is still in stock after so many years (and for cheap)

Seconding ナガクラ.

Besides let's not forget that new wii games aren't even made anymore. There will be no more wii games coming to the market.
And I think it's safe to say that this applies to localizing games as well.
I mean, this is nothing new? These are all old news, from few years ago when Wii U came. Isn't it kinda...  self-explanatory?

Also it's one of the many reasons why the fifth game didn't come to Wii either (stating this as a side note here cause I've seen awfully lot comments about it for some reason??).

So no, 4th game will not be localized officially. Ever. Sorry to be the party pooper.

Not to add a third nail on the coffin, but 5 being an unnumbered title indicates they've likely passed 4 over indefinitely.  There will always be the patch, though, so don't let that put you off.  I don't understand why people have been so against using it, it could've saved y'all 7 years of waiting!

Pretty much the above. I would love for IV to come out, there was a lot of wonderful information, ghosts, and the story was pretty neat.  But I don't see how that is going to happen. The game was pushed to release with flaws. Nintendo and Tecmo / Koei were having disagreements about the game being fixed. Both started pointing to the other's PR for information on releases. Just a mess. (which is sad)


Silly me, I thought Nintendo getting publishing rights was going to mean the game was going to be given the advertising and PR chance to shine that it deserves. (Even Mary Sue didn't have FF5 added to their 'female heroines  game list') nope.

I actually dreamed with a "Fatal Frame Collection" disc for the WiiU.


You can imagine the dissapointment when I woke up.
