Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden is set in an eerie mountain where you’ll be looking for others while solving all kinds of mysteries. The game’s latest trailer demonstrates how you’ll be doing just that, with the help of the Camera Obscura.
The video starts out with Hisoka Kurosawa handing over the protagonist Yuri Kozukata a projection device, or the Camera Obscura, that can be used to see things that normally can’t be seen, and help find things that have gone missing.
Yuri is then shown walking around Hikami Mountain with what looks like ghosts wandering about. Hisoka explains that they’re shadows left behind by people in the past, and prompts her to follow them.
Next, they explain how you’ll use the Wii U GamePad to look for hidden objects that normally can’t be seen, similar to the way the Camera Obscura has been used in past games.
The spirits will also be aggressive, so you’ll need to use the projection device to attack them. Getting closer shots at the spirits will do more damage to them, and can even allow you to pull off multiple attacks afterwards if done correctly.
A voice is then heard telling Yuri that she can no longer escape from the mountain, followed by a look at the game’s key characters at 3:07, starting with Yuri, Miu Hinasaki, and Ren Houjou. You can read more about them in our earlier report.
At the end of the trailer, they show Miu telling Ren that she has decided to go back to the mountain, and asks if he’s willing to take her there. He insists that it’s too dangerous, but then sees some sort of image behind her after she turns her back, as she says “I’ll be going then.”
Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden will release on September 27, 2014 in Japan for Wii U.
