Koei Tecmo revealed costume DLC available for Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 28, 2021.
The additional DLC features a costume set from Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. The threads replicate the game’s main protagonists Mio and Mayu Amakura’s costumes. There’s a digital deluxe version available that comes with a copy of the game, a digital artbook, and six costumes inspired by previous characters in the series, including the Fatal Frame II costumes. Other costumes include a Rei Kurosawa outfit for Yuri, two Miku Hinasaki outfits for Miu, and the Kei Amakura outfit for Ren.
Those who pre-order or purchase within the first two weeks will release a Ryza costume inspired by Atelier Ryza.
During gameplay, players assume the role of Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, and Miu Hinasaki as they venture through Mt. Hikami to find someone who disappeared. To overcome the 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.
Each successful shot will cause a spirit to emit Spirit Fragments and if players are able to capture an image of the ghost and these mysterious fragments in the same frame, they will unleash a high-damage Fatal Frame attack. Upgrading the camera’s parts, such as equipping a stronger lens or changing out the film, allows more powerful images to be taken, giving players more protection as they venture further up the mountain.
