    Hmm…interesting. So nice to see the Survival Horror genre come back with full force this gen, when it was almost death last gen. I’ll definitely check this out if it comes out stateside.

    Also, for those of you that want to know more about the Clock Tower series:

  • Arkham Knight

    Next year the PS Vita is getting a lot of great looking games, and this one especially makes me want to get one. I liked Clock Tower the First Fear and Clock Tower Second. I hope this one turns out good.

    • badmoogle

      Lets wait and see if this gets localized before we get too excited.

      • Arkham Knight

        Even if it dosent get localized, ill just download it.

    • SMTGamer

      Yep

    • Harry Potter

      get a vita now this is the best yr for this console and PS3 games are getting lesser they will kill it soon

  • Land of Green Pasture

    I hope it’s just horror, not another gory shaz.

    • Ris Ris

      U don’t like gory stuffs?

      • Land of Green Pasture

        I’m not too fond of it, I can stand it though…

        • Ris Ris

          Good for u. I’m not fond of it and can’t stand it either.

    • Mika Moreno

      I’d like a mix of both. I believe gore adds too the horror, but too much just makes it seem… not as good. I guess.

    • Dick Mountainjoy

      Clock Tower usually doesn’t have a lot of gore.

  • bloodiOS

    Hope the graphics looks at least as good as Haunting Ground.

    • Harry Potter

      they should keep it exclusive for Iphone 6 and vita because iphone six is a beast

  • Mika Moreno

    I’m all for horror games. This looks promising :)

  • mesul6anme

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Clock Tower and Hunting Ground are related somehow ? I remember reading something about it but I’m not sure.

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    I was hoping more Giallo like Clock Tower and less… The Ring with Scissors.

  • Pdugna

    Something “spooky” coming out of a well, it’s definitely the maker of the grudge’s work.

  • Harry Potter

    too many games on vita next yr more than 3ds

    • PuppetMaster

      Next year? You mean this year 2015 right. But yeah i already had a long list of vita games that i want to play in 2015. It’s sad when some people still bashing vita and called it doesn’t have games to play. Btw, talk about 3DS, beside Bravely Second, Majora’s Mask remaster, new Ace Attorney, Xenoblade chronicles port, and MH4U. are there any noticeable release for the platform?

      OT. The teaser looks scary and now i want to watch a couple of Shimizu’s movies.

      • Harry Potter

        well people are just tired searching game for vita because they don’t have one

      • disqus_f0m0KOHNzQ

        I know your post is 9 months old but there is a new Rpg form the Team who did Romancing Saga that comes out this month

        • PuppetMaster

          You mean The Legend of Legacy. I know, i already played the demo. Pretty fun but right now i’m kinda short on money. But thx for the reminder anyway :)

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    Do they really call themselves Nude Maker…? Anyway i hope this turns out as good as first fear clock tower since that was the best one

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    related

    • badmoogle

      Wow that is a great drawing.

      • Dick Mountainjoy

        I should hope so, He’s doing the creature design on Night Cry.

    • Hidayat246

      Silent hill?

      • Dick Mountainjoy

        That’s Ito, that’s a design for Night Cry.

    • tokyobassist

      Wow age has gotten to Ito-san pretty harsh. I guess I just remember how he looked during Silent Hill 2’s development best.

      Dude is literally a monster at drawing monsters lol.

      • superDioplus

        I believe he dyed his hair that way.

  • ayb_91

    Haunting Ground. :(

    • Hidayat246

      i miss that dog too

      • ayb_91

        Yeah, Hewie. At least, they could have remastered it. :(

        • Hidayat246

          …….. and who do you think want to buy remastered game from less-popular game based from capcom view???

          • ayb_91

            Well, the game was great and is still playable. crapcoM can do something about making it known among people. It’s a win-win deal. And yeah, I would buy it.

            • Hidayat246

              not even chance right now
              i don’t even remember when last time capcom make puzzle horror game like haunting ground
              re-release as PS2 Classsic is the best possible hope for this game

  • MetalGarurumon

    COOL!

  • Budgiecat

    yay for Vita

    boo for iOS/Android…

    • Harry Potter

      yeah booo!

    • yomachaser

      • Budgiecat

        whatever helps you phone sext at night

  • tokyobassist

    Considering some heavy hitters are working on this, I have very high expectations. I want my skepticism to die regarding horror games and handhelds. I hope it’s awesome because the trailer was pretty interesting.
