Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is finally headed to the West and will launch on the Nintendo Switch next year. A survival-horror game developed by Koei Tecmo in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was originally only released in Japan.
Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is the fourth game in the Fatal Frame series, and is set on the fictional Rougetsu Island. As primary protagonist Ruka Minazuki and several other characters, players will need to investigate the dark past of the island that’s inhabited by malevolent spirits.
Two of the game’s characters can fight back against these evil spirits using the Camera Obscura to capture these phantoms, with the damage dealt by the camera being dependent on the type of film used and the angle at which the shot was taken.
