Nintendo have announced new details surrounding the release of a Wii version of the classic Survival Horror game, Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly. Called Project Zero 2: Wii Edition, the game - which is known as Fatal Frame II in the US - is set in a small town that disappeared as a result of a strange ritual.
From the game's official website:
Twin sisters Mio and Mayu Amakura find themselves lost in a village that has vanished from the map, a village veiled in eternal twilight.
The restless spirits of the villagers roam the streets, searching for twins to use as offerings in a mysterious ceremony...
"The offerings, they have returned."
"Why did they try to escape?"
"We must continue the ceremony."
The twins search for a way out of the village. Mio does her best to safely lead her sister, who still walks with a limp caused by a childhood injury. But it soon becomes clear that May is sensitive to the spirit world, and is being steadily posessed by the spirit of a twin who once took part in the village's dark ceremony.
As the sisters draw closer to the terrible truth that lies behind The Shadow Ritual, their paths will intertwine with those taken by other twins in the past...

Rather than just a port, the game has been revised to take advantage of the Wii's unique input methods:
Project Zero 2: Wii Edition utilises the unique Wii motion controls allowing you to really feel as if you are in the haunted environment, your trusty flashlight is integral when exploring and moving the Wii Remote to explore every inch of the environment will allow you find hidden items and secrets.
If you get too scared when reaching out to open doors or while picking up items, then you can release your grip or retract your hand by releasing the A Button. This new functionality can also be used to quickly avoid any ghostly presences which may prevent you from grasping items! So, be careful what you do, because you don’t know what is lurking in the darkness and what you might find.
