Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse will be released digitally on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2023.
The fourth entry in the beloved survival horror franchise, the game’s plot concerns Ruka Minazuki, whose two friends have died in an abandoned sanatorium on Rogetsu Island. He returns to discover the truth of what happened. You will play as several characters to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Fatal Frame’s combat centers around taking pictures of ghosts with a magical camera known as the Camera Obscura. Enemies can take different types of damage based on the film used and shot composition. This version of the game adds a photo mode, along with the usual graphics improvements.
Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was originally developed and published for the Wii by Grasshopper Manufacture and Tecmo (before the merger with Koei). Nintendo refused to publish the game in the United States and Europe. This new version, announced at a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, will be the game’s first official release in the west.
Buying the game at launch or two weeks later can get you a Marie Rose themed costume (from Dead or Alive). If you have saved data from Fatal Frame: The Maiden of Black Water on your device, you can raise a Camera Obscura hat. A digital deluxe edition comes with a dinner suit set and a digital art book.
