Publisher Koei Tecmo has shared the story trailer for their upcoming horror adventure, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse. Occurring a decade after five girls disappeared during a festival at Rōgetsu Isle, an island in Southern Japan, these same girls ended up suffering from memory loss. However, they somehow remember a single melody and a masked woman dancing in the moonlight. Two of these rescued girls are now deceased, and the three remaining ones vow to uncover the mysteries surrounding their bizarre deaths.
Players will explore western-styled mansions and abandoned hospitals while relying on one’s own flashlight and the moonlight. Newspaper articles and notes will help unveil the island’s past and progress the narrative. The iconic Fatal Frame device, the Camera Obscura, makes a return, with the girls using it to seal the powers of vengeful ghosts. It will also be customizable to better combat the various supernatural threats roaming the land.
This release will include a new Photo Mode, ” new and altered costumes, and enhanced graphics including the improved rendering of shadows and light, delivering a more immersive and frightening experience.” Additionally, in-game movies and character models have been “brushed up.”
The company also announced that digital pre-orders for the title are now available ahead of its March 9, 2023, launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Windows and Steam.
