Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Comes To The West

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Comes To The West

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, the Wii entry in the famous survival horror series, is finally coming to the West for the first time.

Announced as part of today’s Nintendo Direct, a localised version of Mask of the Lunar Eclipse will be available on Switch early in 2023. This entry follows Ruka Minazuki who, after mysteriously disappearing as a child, explores an abandoned hospital in search of her lost memories. The hospital is, of course, full of all kinds of nasties, which can be repelled with Fatal Frame’s classic tool, the camera obscura.

The original version of this fourth game in the Fatal Frame series was released in Japan back in 2008. While a European release was announced, it never made it to the West. This new Switch version, then, marks quite the event for Fatal Frame fans.
