Step Into The World Of Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir This April


Surprise! How many of you expected Nintendo’s Fatal Frame spin-off, Shinrei Camera, to make its way out of Japan? Yeah, me neither. But, somehow, we’ve all been warped into this crazy alternate dimension where someone decided it would be a good idea to bring the game over!


Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, Nintendo of America say, is about a girl named Maya. She’s hiding in an old house and it’s your job to help her escape from the mysterious woman in black.


As previously reported, Spirit Camera is an augmented reality game. It comes with a 16-page AR book, called “The Diary of Faces”. You view the pages of the diary through the Nintendo 3DS camera to enter the AR world. Sometimes, these pages will reveal flashback scenes via movies. Other times, they’ll make ghosts attack you.


Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is slated for release on — wait for it — Friday, April 13th. You can watch an older Japanese trailer for the game here.
