Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water Sells 340,000 Units Worldwide Between October & December 2021

Koei Tecmo has announced, via their latest financial report, that their re-release of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water sold over 340,000 units worldwide between October through December of 2021. This sales figure also accounts for each release platform, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

Thanks to our team’s Ryuji for translating this noteworthy news.

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.
