Today, KOEI TECMO America announced that their remastered classic, FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, is now available for digital pre-order. The long-awaited revival of this Japanese horror adventure is currently under development for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam and will be available digitally on March 9th, 2023.
FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse takes place on a Rogetsu Isle in southern Japan, a decade after five young girls mysteriously disappeared at a moonlight festival. When two of the girls are found dead, just days apart ten years after the initial vanishing, the remaining three teenagers — Ruka Minazuki, Misaki Aso, and Madoka Tsukimori — head back to the spooky island to solve the mystery of their friends’ deaths and their hazy memories. As players encounter the terrifying spirits that inhabit Rogetsu Isle, they are equipped with the Camera Obscura. This special camera can be used to not only repel the ghostly creatures but to seal away their power through photography. Later in the game, players will also be able to use the Spirit Torch – an exceptional device that uses moonlight stored in a spirit stone to subdue spirits.
In the haunting new trailer debuting today, players get a frightening preview of FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse’s storyline, along with a closer look at some of the game’s mechanics, including Photo Mode, where players will be able to capture all of the haunting memories and moments throughout their adventure. The trailer also showcases a first glimpse of the alternative costumes available to each character, including the original lineup of outfits, along with slightly altered versions, as well as all-new costumes to help experience the investigation in a variety of fashion.
Alongside the standard version of the game, KOEI TECMO America will also release a special FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Digital Deluxe Edition. Available digitally, this unique edition of the game includes the Rogetsu Isle Dinner Party Costume Set, and a digital art book (original soundtrack included).
In addition, anyone who purchases the digital copy of the game by March 22nd, 2023, will have the ability to download the early purchase bonus: Ruka Exclusive Costume “Marie Rose Outfit” from the Dead or Alive series.
