It has been a very long time since we have heard anything new in regards to the Project Zero / Fatal Frame IP, with the last iteration launching in the West back in 2015 to lackluster sales. Now with E3 just passing, another sneak announcement slipped through, with some interesting release plans for this still Nintendo co-owned franchise.
Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water will be getting a remastered release on all modern platforms, no longer retaining exclusivity to Nintendo hardware. The Nintendo Switch version will run similar to the Wii U version at 30FPS. However all other releases will be in 60FPS, with PS5 and PC offering 4K, PS4 offering FHD, and Xbox offering 4K/FHD depending on your console’s tier.
You can read the official description and check out the trailer below:
Return to Mt. Hikami and Face Your Fears!
Experience all of the horror from the original Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water with new remastered visuals, new costumes and photo mode features.
The main adventure consists of three interconnected stories which lead the player to uncover the horrifying truth behind a string of recent tragic deaths taking place in a forest with an infamous history.
Take on the role of one of three people with the power of the Camera Obscura and the ability to see the shadows of those spirited away. The story will take you on a frightening adventure through the ruins of an eerie inn, a shrine filled with life-size dolls, and a lake full of dead priestesses.
Each location is connected by a stream of water flowing throughout the mountain. This formerly holy water is tied to the most horrifying mystery of all – the history of death and darkness on Mt. Hikami.
