Using The Wii U GamePad As A Ghost-Killing Camera

As a long-time fan of the Fatal Frame series, I can see the perceived appeal of having the Wii U’s GamePad with its gyro sensor and dedicated screen acting as a proxy for the game’s ghost-killing camera. But while it works in Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko (Fatal Frame V), I’d rather just use my big screen TV.

However, that’s not to say that the experience has been completely negative. Some interesting changes have come to pass thanks to the GamePad that serve to change up the combat gameplay for the better.

Check out the video above to see just what playing Fatal Frame V with the GamePad is like.

Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko was released for the Nintendo Wii U in Japan on September 27, 2014. There is currently no word on a Western release.


  • It really frustrates me that they’re keeping this in Japan. The WiiU needs good horror games and this is one of them. I know there is a group of people trying to get it brought here.

  • It just looks like another job for dedicated translators, just like last time and it will just be Nintendo losing out not us
