Here's a little something for all those missing out on a certain Japanese Wii horror game. XSEED has announced that it will be releasing AQ Interactive's Ju-on game in the US this October.
Ju-on: The Grudge is described as a "haunted house simulator". Kinda distressingly, the press release states that "accessibility and instant scares are given priority over all other game aspects". Now, that doesn't sound too good from a gameplay perspective, but it should be good enough for some easy scares.
Here's the rest of the game description:
Using the Wii Remote as a flashlight, Ju-on: The Grudge has players move forward with the touch of a button and explore haunted areas such as an abandoned warehouse, a dimly-lit hospital, and a mannequin factory. Much like in a haunted house, the player must proceed forward even after being frightened and running away from the initial threat. As much fun as it is to get scared, sometimes it s even more fun to watch others play to observe their reactions. For instant gratification, grab a second Wii Remote and push buttons to make in-game events happen immediately to make the player jump and hate you forever.
