Now Playing: Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse - Overview Trailer

Fatal Frame's combat is centered around taking pictures of ghosts with a magical camera, known as the Camera Obscura. Enemies can take different kinds of damages based on the film used and the composition of the shot. This version of the game adds a photo mode, alongside the usual graphic enhancements.

Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was originally developed and published for the Wii by Grasshopper Manufacture and Tecmo (before the merger with Koei). Nintendo declined to publish the game in the United States and Europe. This new version, announced at a Nintendo Direct earlier this year, will be the game's first official release in the west.

Purchasing the game at release or two weeks after can get you a Marie Rose (from Dead or Alive) themed costume. If you have save data from Fatal Frame: The Maiden of Black Water on your device, you can pick up a Camera Obscura hat. A digital deluxe edition comes with a dinner party costume set and a digital art book.
