I ain't afraid of no ghost! And Nintendo and Tecmo Koei certainly aren't afraid of reviving old ones, either. Cult horror Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly has a new lease of life on the Wii, so it's time to get shivers down your spine - and maybe down through your thigh and shin bones, too - all over again.

Considered to be the scariest in the Project Zero franchise, Crimson Butterfly tells the tale of twin sisters who get lost in the woods one evening and stumble across a spooky village, populated with nothing but fearsome (and friendly) spectres. Your only weapon against the ghosts is a torch and a device called the Camera Obscura, which can capture spooks within its film reel.

The Wii is perfect for this set-up, and the remastered classic adds motion-sensing controls, with the Wii Remote used as a pointer to direct the on-screen torch. There is also an additional "Haunted House" mode included, which sees players attempt to survive an on-rails amusement park ride. Brand new two player modes have been packed in too, with one person trying to complete the game as normal and another controlling the appearance of ghosts and what sounds come out of the Wii Remote.

Not afraid of no ghost? Well, maybe you should be...
