Kouta Koikawa : (05 September 2017 - 01:26 PM) I remember how this forum used to be active. That was many years ago. We need a new game to make the forum active again.
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:29 AM) How about Fatal Frame Card Game?
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:35 AM) Couldn't find anything about it here
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:36 AM) But it exist, quite long

Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) There's a Nintendo Direct coming.
Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) I'm not holding my breath for it but a teaser for a new FF would be nice.
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It would
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It's happening pretty late at night here, so I doubt I'll stay up and watch it, but I'd be happy to wake up to news
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 08:54 AM) Same for me. At least KT once stated that they have a little something in the works for the Switch and I doubt it'll only be FE: Warriors.
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 10:57 PM) Now that was kinda disappointing. Didn't expect Doom and Wolfenstein. As expected, no FF news, unfortunately. I'm surprised that we didn't get a Smash 4 port announced or any news on Travis Strikes Back.

Uhh, I like the box cover art of Fatal Frame IV. It just looks good to me, like it's not a cliche, well honestly imo.

 

The rest were alright, but this one seemed to attract me a lot o:

 

Runner-ups to me are:

 

1. Fatal Frame V, where I like the color scheme in this place,

 

2. Fatal Frame III (US) for its duality concept (Rei on top, water on bottom where Ruka can be faintly? seen), and

 

3. Fatal Frame II Deep Crimson Butterfly (JP) because um, colors. it's good. Lol.

All in order haha ^^;

Fatal Frame 5 box art ( JP version )

https://sickr.files....i_u_box_art.jpg


It is the definition of perfection because it really capture the concept and the environment of the game + it looks really good with the dark Wii u logo for Cero rated games.

Can there be a tie?  I like 1 and 2's Japanese box arts equally.  Miku being unconscious with ropes around her wrists, ankles, and neck is iconic, and Mio and Mayu facing each other back to back while Crimson Butterflies pour into the sky sets the theme of the game very well.

 

3 and 4 have really good box art as well but I prefer 1 and 2's.

 

Deep Crimson Butterfly's Japanese artwork is honestly kind of lame in my opinion.  It's well rendered and the lanterns are pretty but it doesn't symbolize Mio and Mayu's importance to the story and the themes of the game at all.  I would have preferred the unused Sae artwork for it in order to better compare it to the EU box art.

 

5's might be my favorite if they had done something between the two people on the box art.  If Miu had been omitted entirely and had been used in a future game with a plausible family background, and had Hisoka as the second main character (Although she kind of already is in terms of story importance) then it might have been my favorite one.  I liked it a lot before I played the game so if it actually symbolized something in the game like 1 and 2's box arts do then I'd like it more.

They're all quite nice, but I'd have to go with 5's European version.  The lighter colours are much easier on the eye than the slightly off-putting dark blue/green filter and kanji that looked kinda bloated.

Oo, you know who might've been a better fit?  Ouse.  Probably spoilerish, but it'd work thematically, especially with Ouse being the one upside down like she's falling.

FF I (JP) > DCB (JP) > FF IV > FF III (JP) > FF V, in my opinion. I still like the FF V boxart, though.
In my opinion the Japanese box art is often better than the American and European ones (with V being an exception, I agree with Hex on that one), since those designs are often too busy to me, that they don't represent the tone of the games too well.

Yeah, the European box art is a lot prettier.  I get they might have been going for the water being impure but in terms of box art it just looks polluted and gross with the unnatural green and blue coloration.  I wish there was a render of that version of the art work without the title and rating on it.

 

Ouse would have been a fantastic fit.  Maybe they could have had Hisoka as a hidden face in the water in the middle to symbolize how Yuuri more or less chooses one over the other in the endings?  I always got the feeling that Yuuri was kind of forced into choosing Ouse in the bad ending because you need to have the black water covering you to get it but that is a cool way of thinking about it.

 

I neglected to mention it last night but special mention goes to the JP Xbox version's Fatal Frame 1 box art.  Miku in the kimono with ropes around her is also very iconic looking.  They also kept her Japanese design for the box art which I like.

Hmmm, I can quite see that. I'd agree with you about it since it looked realistically clearer than the Japanese version. It looks really light with the eyes rather than the other one. As for the kanji, I think that's been a thing for the JP box art?
