Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is being ported to all formats
The 2014 Wii U exclusive is coming to Switch, PlayStation and Xbox consoles and PC
Koei Tecmo‘s 2014 horror game Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is being ported to all current formats.
Maiden of Black Water was originally released as a Wii U exclusive, and was published by Nintendo.
Today’s news marks the first time the game will come to non-Nintendo systems, with releases planned for Switch, Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
According to Koei Tecmo, the new ports will be released this year and will be enhanced versions of the Wii U game, with upgraded visuals in line with the capabilities of modern systems.
A new Photo Mode will also be added, “allowing [players] to set up characters and ghosts in various scenes and adjust their poses in order to create the perfect spooky picture.”
A selection of new costumes will also be made available for the main protagonists.
The Wii U version also included some Nintendo-themed costumes including Zero Suit Samus and Zelda. While these almost certainly won’t be in the other versions, it’s not yet clear if they’ll feature in the Switch port.
Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is set on Mount Hikami, a sacred location that’s haunted by a tragic past.
Players take control of three characters – Yuri, Ren and Miu – as they explore Mount Hikami armed with just a flashlight and the Camera Obscura, a special camera which can take photos of ghosts.
The game is the fifth main entry in the Fatal Frame series, also known as Project Zero in Europe.
