Koei Tecmo revealed this week that Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water will hit PC and consoles (PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One/Series X/S and Nintendo Switch) on October 28th.
For anyone in the dark about this release, the latest installment in the beloved Fatal Frame series of horror games was originally released for Nintendo’s Wii U console back in 2014, but it’s been enhanced and reworked to better fit the power of the current generation consoles as well as our good old friend the PC (some of these enhancements include the addition of a Photo Mode, new costumes, as well as improved graphics).
FATAL FRAME: Maiden of Black Water takes players to the eerie Mt. Hikami, a sacred location haunted by bizarre and unfortunate occurrences – and a place where the water is believed to be housed by vengeful spirits. Through the eyes of Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, and Miu Hinasaki, they will rely on just a flashlight and a unique camera – the Camera Obscura – with the ability to take pictures of ghosts, as they explore the mountain to find those who have disappeared. Will players be able to repel the deadly ghosts and uncover the mysteries surrounding Mt. Hikami?
The title is an enhanced version of 2014’s Wii U release of the same name, which includes upgraded visuals to match the latest hardware advancements – offering an even more terrifying and immersive experience. Fans of this iconic series can not only play on their favorite gaming platform, but will also be able to enjoy an all-new Photo Mode, allowing them to set-up characters and ghosts in various scenes and adjust their poses in order to create the perfect spooky picture. In addition, there will be a selection of new costumes for the main protagonists, helping make every picture in your collection more unique.
