Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water
The E3 trailer for the latest entry in a cult-classic survival horror series didn’t make it into Nintendo’s video E3 presentation. Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water, originally announced for localization a few months ago, will be the first non-spinoff Fatal Frame game to come to North America in nearly a decade.
Not a single word is spoken in the new trailer. Instead, the mood is set with creepy music and the gasping moans of the ghosts encountered in Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water. As with other games in the series, fighting hostile spirits is done through the lens of a special camera. Getting up close and personal using the Wii U game pad is the only way to defeat pursuing spirits. The gamepad acts as the reoccurring Camera Obscura protagonists throughout the Fatal Frame series have used to fight off ghosts.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water releases exclusively for the Wii U in Fall 2015.
