FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse 'Story' trailer
Better check the batteries in that flashlight
FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse releases on Switch on March 9th 2023. Ahead of that release, let’s take a deeper look at the storyline, game mechanics and features as you prepare to investigate the incidents of Rōgetsu Isle.
FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse takes place on a Rogetsu Isle in southern Japan, a decade after five young girls mysteriously disappeared at a moonlight festival. When two of the girls are found dead, just days apart ten years after the initial vanishing, the remaining three teenagers – Ruka Minazuki, Misaki Aso and Madoka Tsukimori – head back to the spooky island to solve the mystery of their friends’ deaths and their hazy memories. As players encounter the terrifying sprits that inhabit Rogetsu Isle, they are equipped with the Camera Obscura. This special camera can be used to not only repel the ghostly creatures, but to seal away their power through photography. 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.
Alongside the standard version of the game, KOEI TECMO America will also release a special FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Digital Deluxe Edition. Available digitally, this unique edition of the game includes the Rogetsu Isle Dinner Party Costume Set, and a digital art book (original soundtrack included).
