The previously announced Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water (or as it'll be known in Europe, Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water) will be delivering some scares on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on October 28.
Marking a first for the series since the 2004 Xbox release Fatal Frame II: Director's Cut, the latest entry will bring the cult classic Nintendo Wii U game to additional systems for the first time. Not only that, but it'll also receive some new nifty features and other enhancements.
The most notable new feature is a Photo Mode, which is described as allowing you to use "any character or any ghost from the adventure, position them on a background of their choice, and add a variety of effects to make the perfect scary photo". There are also new cosmetic items such as costumes and accessories to use.
While all this may sound cute and cuddly, the game is anything but, as you're forced to come face-to-face with the terrifying monsters and capture them on camera. You'll upgrade your equipment throughout such as equipping a stronger lens, providing you further protection against the ghosts that block your path.
FATAL FRAME: Maiden of Black Water is an enhanced version of the 2014 Wii U release of the same name, allowing players on all platforms to enjoy this unique horror experience.
Players will step into the shoes of Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, and Miu Hinasaki as they venture up the eerie Mt. Hikami in hopes of finding those who have previously disappeared. In order to overcome the malevolent spirits housed in the mountain’s waters, they will have to master the Camera Obscura – a unique camera that can deal damage to ghosts upon taking a photo.
The series has maintained a strong following for a while, but has been fairly quiet since Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water's original release on the Wii U back in 2014. Perhaps this can revitalise the series and bring some scares just in time for Halloween.
