Project Zero 2 Wii may be a remake of an old PlayStation game but according to producer Keisuke Kikuchi, it feels like an all-new game thanks to the significant changes Tecmo Koei has made to the game.
Speaking during the latest Iwata Asks interview, Kikuchi said: "I feel that to all intents and purposes, it's a new game! The objective viewpoint that Nintendo brought to the project meant that we ended up reworking a lot of different elements of the game from first principles.
"We've made significant changes to the battle system, and we have added new episodes and several endings. We've also brought the graphics up to date, and packed it full of features that put it right at the cutting edge of horror games."
Chief among these all-new elements is a Haunted House mode which resembles a ride from an amusement park. The action is on-rails but by using your Wii Remote and Nunchuk, you can move forward and look around your environment using the flashlight. According to Nintendo, you will be surprised at every corner.
Explaining the new mode, Kikuchi said: "As the name suggests, it's a mode which is ideal for a quick, no-frills game, and is great for playing with friends and family who prefer to avoid the really scary stuff. There are a number of different courses in which scary events take place, basically at random."
Project Zero 2 Wii is set for release on June 29th. Are you going to buy it?
