Koei Tecmo producer Keisuke Kikuchi made an appearance during the NicoNico Live Fatal Frame series stream to talk about the latest of the upcoming new game on Wii U, which was revealed as Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden [零 ～濡鴉ノ巫女～ Zero ~Nuregarasu no Miko].
The concept of the game comes from a “Japanese-style” horror, which will revolve around Japanese buildings, using cameras, and the fear of “getting wet”.
It takes place in a big mountain that has a big lake and graves. According to Kikuchi, it seems like we’ll be seeing a lot of damp areas, and quite the scary figures, like traditional Japanese ghost girls who appears completely drenched in water.
The protagonist Yuri Kozukata has an ability she’s had since childhood, where she can bring those who’ve been “spirited away” to another realm and no longer visible, back to the regular world. After accepting a request to find a certain someone, she steps foot into the mountain that the game is set in.
The Wii U GamePad will have a camera feature that shows things that you normally can’t see with your eyes, and it will also be used as some sort of weapon that can be used while facing enemies.
The story unfolds the mysterious events that occurs in this mysterious mountain. During the trailer, it showed Yuri watching a girl slit her throat, only to have her disappear… followed by a mysterious figure appear right behind Yuri.
Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden will be released on September 27, 2014 in Japan.
