Juon Wii Horror Confirmed for Europe

Juon Wii Horror Confirmed for Europe on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Rising Star Games has today confirmed that Juon for Wii is heading to Europe. When it was recently revealed that XSEED Games' parent company, AQ Interactive was increasing its stake in the US publisher to 90% in order to focus more on the Japanese company's titles, the obvious conclusion was that AQI's horror game for Wii, based on the popular J-Horror classic Juon / The Grudge, was likely to head to the US.

Now Rising Star Games has shown off a teaser video (see below) of what is without a doubt that very game. However, even though the video could be nothing else, the lid will be officially lifted on 23rd-24th May at the MCM Expo in London's ExCel Centre where Tecmo's Rygar and Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade will both be aired, alongside recent release Little King's Story.

Are you pleased to hear Juon could be arriving in Europe earlier than expected?

Great news, though I'll wait till I've read some reviews before deciding to buy or not.

Fragile will come, I reckon. But it won't be via RSG since Namco Bandai has just completely bought out Atari Europe.

I'd say RSG will end up picking up Jaleco's cool looking Wii RPG Kizuna as well. Wish they could grab Inazuma Eleven on DS...but I guess Nintendo will want to work with Level 5 again.

I say that RSG should strike a deal with Square Enix to bring Nanashi no Game over here on DS as well...
