    About Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse

    Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse takes place a decade after five girls mysteriously disappeared at a moonlight festival on Rogetsu Isle, an island in southern Japan. While all of the girls were eventually rescued, their memories were lost, with only the faint remembrance of a single melody and a seemingly possessed masked woman dancing in the moonlight. Now, ten years later, with still no memory of the events surrounding their disappearances, two of the five girls have died, and the remaining three teenagers — Ruka Minazuki, Misaki Aso and Madoka Tsukimori — head back to the eerie island to solve the mystery of their friends’ deaths, while also unlocking the mystery of the memories left behind. 

    As the girls explore the western-style mansions and abandoned hospitals on Rogetsu Isle, they will rely on the moonlight and a faint flashlight to search for clues. The story progresses by discovering relics like old newspaper articles and notes that help the girls unravel the island’s secret past. While exploring, the girls will also be confronted by a series of spirits. They will need to use a Fatal Frame franchise classic, the Camera Obscura, to repel vengeful ghosts, sealing away their power by photographing them. Throughout the game, the girls will need to equip stronger lenses and change out different films in order to capture the most powerful spirits, while also using the camera to capture “things that cannot be seen” to help them find the evidence they need to remember their haunting past. Later in the game, players will also be able to use the Spirit Torch – an exceptional device that uses moonlight stored in a spirit stone to subdue spirits.

    Lastly, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.
