Upon completing the story, you’ll unlock a special mission featuring Ayane in Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden, where she’s been requested to search for a missing girl in Hikami mountain.

Once Ayane gets to the Hikami mountain, she snuck into a closed down hotel, but is then severely wounded by an entity from the hidden world. After making an escape, she becomes tied to the world of the dead, where she must hide from the spirits.



The girl who went missing is named Tsumugi Katashina, and she apparently went into the mountains after a failed suicide attempt, due to having a complex with her family who favor her half-sister.

Prior to Ayane’s disappearance, she already met up with Tsumugi, and connected a special purple thread to her, which you’ll use to find her.

Since Ayane won’t be able to simply beat up the spirits, she’ll have to rely on her kunoichi stealth skills to hide from them.



Running and getting too close to a spirit will result in her getting caught, so you’ll need to be careful out there. The stealth meter on the right-side of the screen will let you know if things get too dangerous.


Getting caught by a spirit will have the other nearby spirits go after Ayane, too, so you’ll need to careful go behind to attack them to get through at some parts.

Instead of her regular attacks, Ayane will rely on the Spirit Stone Torch to fight off spirits. Using it can stun them and temporarily stop their movements, which will come in handy when you want to get through spirit-filled areas.


Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden is slated for release in Japan on September 27, 2014 for Wii U.

  • I’ve seen enough hentai to know where this is going… hehehe

    • d19xx

      Copping a feel even in the after life. Now that’s dedication.

      • persona_yuji

        Well if I was ghost in the universe of DoA, copping would become a hobby with lots of choices and variations.

      • J_Joestar

        one of those hands isn’t even shy about trying to hide it’s attempt to grab her chest

    • Go on…..

    • John Hayabusa

      I am very envious of those ghosts. When I first watched Ayane’s introduction in NG3: RE, I was very envious of that female massager.

      • d19xx

        A female massager? Please tell us more!

    • Raltrios

      Christ, that hand on the right might as well be a tentacle monster for all the fingers it has…

  • Fatal Frame: Ayane. The best Fatal Frame.

    • kylehyde

      The breast Fatal Frame

  • Raging Rasta

    Hmm her outfit’s gonna be DLC in DOA5U. Watch.

    • Sion12

      and will only cost $14.99!

      • All Fiction

        He, this free level ain’t gonna fund itself !

      • Tincho Kudos

        Not when the Ultra Ultimate Definitive Version Real HD version comes out

      • Raging Rasta

        Pfft. Sure, if it were in a pack.

  • persona_yuji

    So Ayane will actually have to do ninja stuff, huh?
    Still, that’s a pretty interesting take on the Fatal Frame franchise.

  • psycho_bandaid

    A game with unlockable content that could have easily been dlc in this day and age? KT you have just restored a bit of my faith in the industry.

  • xe7en

    Not sure if I’ll get the scare playing her route or spend hours ogling at her.

  • Kyosuke Yoshino

    Dunno, I don’t feel that adding Ayane into a Project Zero game is a great idea.

    • DragKudo

      she’s extra content for fun.

  • David García Abril


    Her breasts are bigger alright…


    • Ren Yuumei


    • doubleO7

      I don’t think they’re bigger, they’re just more accentuated by her tight outfit.

  • Sion12

    wow Unlockable mission thats not a DLC!!!

  • pekikuubik

    Just give her (and maybe Kasumi) her own stealth game already.

    • Kamen Rider Rayz

      That would be a great spiritual successor for Tenchu! Hehe :D

  • JunHoward

    Hmm… how about adding Lu Bu as a ghost boss character?

    • Weeb

      I never knew how much I wanted this until now.

  • Cyril Murasakitsuyukusa

    Looks great! Maybe they’ll consider releasing a Tenchu-like stealth game starring Ayane, Hayate and other NG/DOA ninja characters?

  • John Hayabusa

    Is it me or do Ayane’s “Fatal Frames” get a little bigger?

    • Death Metal

      It’s you.

  • She really fits in this game with the shrine setting. Can’t wait for it to be released in the West. Make it happen KOEI!

  • Xion

    Ayane mosou mode

  • JustJam

    Awesome. So the Spirit Stone Torch is making a return! But I still prefer the camera Obscura. It didn’t make sense how in the Fatal Frame IV, it was used to take pictures too..

  • Go2hell66


  • John Hayabusa

    I kind of feel that this special mission reminds me of RE: Revelations 2, only this time it is two girls trying to get away from ghosts instead of zombies or monsters.

  • Warboss Aohd

    wow, so little faith in your game that you felt the need to use Ayane to sell it?

    • HarakiriKami

      …. Err no not really.

      Koei games are all part of one big universe

      • KazukiNanbu

        then we should call it the koeiverse or tecmoverse or whatever

        • zaidandzhadow


    • Ferrick

      little? Can’t you see those huge bazongas that have their own gravity field?!

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        And they move individually from one another… Eugh!

    • Kalis Konig

      Ayane is in nearly every Koei Franchise. This is nothing new. lol

  • fairysun

    I still don’t approve this Ayane. Ayane is a badass. If you get in her way, DIE, no matter whether you’re a ninja, demon, …. or evil spirit. She must have some kind of ninjutsu to banish them. But in this game, she has to hide …. the freaking badass kunoichi needs to HIDE all time?!

    • Death Metal

      She is badass, but she’s still human. If the reason is strong enough in the story, I could see Ayane succumbing.

    • DragKudo

      it said she was attacked so i’m guessing this spirit took her powers. So far in Ninja Gaiden and DoA she has been shown to get her ass kicked and make mistakes.

  • Yan Zhao

    First sceenshot, focusing on her cleavage. Later screenshots, dat thong line.

    Yep, DOA infuence here :3

  • Stalemeat

    Ohhh, this is pretty darn cool! Ayane is the best and sneaking around is always fun. A “Tenchu” style Ayane series is welcomed. Hopefully this game will come to the west. I want to play as Ayane.

  • Dexterino

    When we getting this in America? Metal Gear Ayane Tactical Ghost Action.

    Check it out that ghost got a nice left boob grab. Ayane lookin fine in this game.

  • Namuro

    Now, that’s a proper horror-stealth game!

    While this is cool… Very cool. I really want to be able to use Ayane to beat the ghosts’ asses into the next world. LOL

    • DragKudo

      Probably happen in the end. The game will the change into Ninja Gaiden.

  • icup ✔️

    ayane fought demons, she ain’t afraid of no ghost. especially thirsty ghost that just want to feel her up… i don’t blame them.

    • KazukiNanbu

      i don’t blame them either

  • KazukiNanbu

    where are you touching her, stupid and pervy ghost hand…..but i don’t blame you…bastard..

  • Rawindra

    Batman/Spider-Man Noir i presume

  • DragKudo

    ah man this is cool. What’s up with the tattoos?
    Mayu for DOA 6!! Kick ass with a broken leg.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I’m pretty sure a ghost is touching stuff he shouldn’t in the picture, I don’t blame him tho.

  • Vash bane

    these kinds of crossover stuff is funny when think about what games the character originally came from lol


    naughty ghosts >_< XDDD

  • wonder when we are going to see Ryu Hayabusa in Fatal Frame next time

  • Will we see a ghost in Dead or Alive next? :P

  • Mario Bros

    Sigh -_-……Upcoming new costume DLC for DOA5 confirmed

  • Poked

    But I can’t play this game… I don’t live in Japan… I want to play it!!!

  • Xinen

    Wow, so cool. I love DoA, this crossover is neat. Hope this comes westward.

  • artemisthemp

    The Ghost want Ayane

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    …japan don’t hold out on us Yankees

  • Hero

    Played it. Was kind of hard to concentrate with Ayane’s butt crack all out :L
