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 died in an abandoned sanatorium on the island of Rogetsu. She returns to find out the truth about what happened. You will embody several characters to unravel 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 depending on the film used and the shot composition. This version of the game adds a photo mode, in addition to the usual graphical improvements.
Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was originally developed and published for the Wii by Grasshopper Manufacture and Tecmo (prior to the merger with Koei). Nintendo refused to release the game in the United States and Europe. This new release, announced during a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, will be the game’s first official release in the West.
Purchasing the game on release or two weeks after can get you a Marie Rose-themed costume (from Dead or Alive). If you have Fatal Frame: The Maiden of Black Water save data on your device, you can get a Camera Obscura Hat. A digital deluxe edition comes with a set of dinner costumes and a digital art book.
