The next remaster for the Fatal Frame series is finally here and those that have missed out on it from before, can head out and pick it up as you are reading these words. You should have already known that if you have been following along with all of our coverage for the IP and other titles that Koei Tecmo have going on out there, but we can let this be one more reminder. It is not like we have been requesting the remaster for Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and (importantly) the Switch. All without needing to try to import and learn another language just to enjoy what the ghosts and cameras have to offer once more out there. There is a whole lot more to offer, indeed.
For those that needed one more push or even a look at the Fatal Frame IP, here we go with the final trailer to let us all know the game is out there. This one is filled with more of the creepy and dark locations we will have to take our camera into so we can attack all of those evil spirits out there with our camera. That is what the Camera Obscura is all about here, so we better get used to it. Even if the Japanese horror setting is not your normal flavor of horror, it does look as if the team has mixed things up to get even those of us that do not want that. I will not pine on about all of that, and just let you see the last little bit we have for Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse just before you dive into it all. You know you are most likely going to do that if you have clicked into this latest update.
Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse — Launch Trailer
Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse, is now available digitally for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam. The original game, released exclusively in Japan in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii, has been one of Koei Tecmo’s most requested remasters for over a decade, and this marks the first time Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse is available to play, not only in North America, but across multiple consoles and PC.
Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse takes place a decade after five girls mysteriously disappeared at a moonlight festival on Rogetsu Isle, an island in southern Japan. While all of the girls were eventually rescued, their memories were lost, with only the faint remembrance of a single melody and a seemingly possessed masked woman dancing in the moonlight. Now, ten years later, with still no memory of the events surrounding their disappearances, two of the five girls have died, and the remaining three teenagers — Ruka Minazuki, Misaki Aso, and Madoka Tsukimori — head back to the eerie island to solve the mystery of their friends’ deaths, while also unlocking the mystery of the memories left behind.
Have you been counting the days until you were able to get back in on the Fatal Frame IP or are you still counting until we get a wholly new title to experience? Will this version shake things up for those that do not enjoy the horror setting or will it just be a better look at the visuals and story we did not get before? Will you really need to have the different costumes to don in the game or will that only be for the small subsection of gamers out there for this one? Feel free to head into the comment section and let us all know while discussing it further. If there is anything more to share for Fatal Frame: Mask Of The Lunar Eclipse after this launch, we will do so here and on our socials. Just be sure to keep your shutter pointed in our direction so you can see and hear about all of that.
