Koei Tecmo has announced today that Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S later this year. This is the first game in the japanese horror-adventure series to be released on Xbox since 2003’s Crimson Butterfly.
FATAL FRAME: Maiden of Black Water takes players to the eerie Mt. Hikami, a sacred location haunted by bizarre and unfortunate occurrences – and a place where the water is believed to be housed by vengeful spirits. Through the eyes of Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, and Miu Hinasaki, they will rely on just a flashlight and a unique camera – the Camera Obscura – with the ability to take pictures of ghosts, as they explore the mountain to find those who have disappeared. Will players be able to repel the deadly ghosts and uncover the mysteries surrounding Mt. Hikami?
Maiden of Black Water is an enhanced version of 2014’s Wii U release of the same name and includes upgraded visuals, new costumes and an all-new photo mode.
PS2 and OG Xbox. The OG Xbox versions of Fatal Frame 1 and 2 are actually enhanced ports that came later that have STILL exclusive enhanced graphics, modes, features, costumes, etc. OG Xbox versions of them are still the best way to play, so them being BC would be awesome.
Luckily I have my copies. Honestly all of them are pretty expensive, the Wii U version of 5 was a limited edition so that doesn’t help either. 3 on PS2 is also super rare, good luck to anyone trying to find that.
Here’s the European version of the trailer btw.
The logo is so much better than the American version, hope the Xbox version will still be called Project Zero here in Europe.
Oh I wonder if they’ll keep the Zelda and Zero Suit Samus costumes in all versions, or just Switch or get rid of them both.
Actually it turns out Astral Chain is fully owned by Nintendo now so it seems very unlikely it will get ported anywhere else. Before the IP used to be owned by both Nintendo and Platinum, but that changed after Nintendo sold the The Wonderful 101 IP to Platinum.
Bayonetta 2 would be great but Sega would have to do something about that and I’m not sure they care about the series.
As for pricing FF5 is most likely gonna cost more or less the same as the Ninja Gaiden collection.
