midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:32 PM) I heard the rumour about Suda51 too
midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:33 PM) I have my doubts that he'd work on another Fatal Frame game, it sounds like FF4 was chaos and he doesn't really do horror anyway
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:47 PM) *nods* Yeah
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:55 PM) ugh... Okay. Well, I got the keycaptcha in, but it isn't working.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:57 PM) AND... I broke it. *headdesk*
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) and I fixed it.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) yay
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) he had that interview too where he said he didnt like how shibata tries to recreate real ghost experiences, so i doubt he'd return  :icon_fallenwoman:
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) i'd like him to though, ff4 was >>>
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 08:24 PM) a mess but still >>>>
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 09:29 PM) True. There were parts of 4 that I thought were really cool.
Cursed Lemon : (08 October 2018 - 01:29 AM) FF4 was awesome in terms of lore and atmosphere.
ItsukiFace : (08 October 2018 - 07:50 PM) Something ultra wicked, this way comes.
ナガクラ : (09 October 2018 - 06:08 AM) I like the atmosphere of 4
Butterflychaser : (09 October 2018 - 02:16 PM) 4 really was the bees knees. Managed to stray from several elements of the original series whilst retaining the overall feel
Emi : (09 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) agreed. I really loved the playable character twist too.
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:13 PM) 4 has honestly taken the top spot from 2 for me, as my #1 fave
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:14 PM) Also i like that the bot account is Baymax hahaha
ItsukiFace : (11 October 2018 - 02:53 AM) Hi, Chou. It's nice to see you here. ☺️
GregZerO : (21 October 2018 - 02:05 PM) Just Bought "Remothered:Tormented Fathers" since it had a halloween discount.So I'll let you know my opinion about it when I play it.The Siren creator said its great hmhmhm

A Japanese online gaming magazine has just posted a new (and very long) interview with Makoto Shibata and Keiichiro Toyama, creator of Siren!




They talk about Japanese horror games and the future of the genre, buuuut it's all in Japanese so I'm going to be spending the day with Google Translate while praying for Homuranagi's return. :eyelashes: They do mention VR a bit at the end - how does that make you feel, Fatal Framers?


Aside from the interview, if you click the blue link at the bottom, it'll take you straight to part of the original proposal document for FF1, from June 2001, which is really cool to see! The camera viewfinder obviously underwent a lot of changes before the final version, and some of the environments look different too.

It must be a really interesting interview,I can't wait to read it!I am super happy that Toyama talks about horror again,that means that there is a new Siren in the works(or something similar).


Also both of them holding the first games of the series I hope it means that the future of horror is going back to the roots or something.I also wonder if there is a collaboration between the two creators,well that would be awsome,probably for a new project,I love both FF & Siren but I don't think that their worlds fit together.I wouldn't say no to some easter eggs though,ok that went to far..........ehmm okay.


About the VR,it surely looks cool and fits perfectly for horror games but it s too damn expensive right now and I don't rally want them to spend money and build it around VR in exchange of a better story,side quests,new modes blah blah so yh but Viewfider could be really scary with VR for sure.


Anyway I hope that in this interview we will get a hint or two for the next Fatal Frame and Siren.

I can't wait to read it :> 

I'm hoping this means they'll go back to their roots and will build awesome and scary stories around those games. Also I hope this means there will be more Fatal Frames in future ;>


The VR would be nice add to the Fatal Frame series, as long as they still put effort to the story and such things (like GreekShadow pointed out). 

I think VR would cost less in the future, so I don't think that would be problem when new Fatal Frame game would get released.


I liked 1st-person view in FF2, so I really love the idea of VR version -- what if you could only see ghosts trough the Camera Obscura? Or you'd need  to hide from the "boss ghost" like in FF3 when you played as Kei and had to hide from Reika but with way better graphics and overall making those kind of  things better? :0 All the possibilities *A*

VR means nothing to me since I'm poor and will never have enough money to blow on it anyway, lol. So it doesn't mean much to me. I don't even really want it in horror games that much, because first person horror was never anything I liked. Fatal Frame was enjoyable because you could toggle it, AND it made the combat all the more terrifying, but you weren't stuck in it for the whole game.


I am interested in seeing the interview, though!

Screw your zombie train, we're rollin'.

Oh wow, Shibata and Toyama being interviewed together  :o Forbidden Frame is coming!


But yeah, I'd really love to read this. The VR mentions are interesting, I've tried VR horror in the form of Dead Secret on Gear VR and it's really great, I wonder what they're saying about it.

i will jiggle into your soul

Don't you know, guys, that Toyama and Shibata are friends, sort of (depends on what you define as a 'friend'), or at least they know each other for a long time.

I'm sorry, I still don't have time even to look through their intreview, I'm pretty sure I'll be absolutely free by the end of next week.

Hope this means something good for the Fatal Frame series as well as the Siren series.  I would love both of these franchises to go back to their roots and make new games in their respective series in the same style as the originals of both franchises.
