Okay, so Fatal Frame 4 never left Japan, and the Wii remake of Fatal Frame 2 seems to have completely vanished. Tecmo Koei and Nintendo wouldn't keep holding out on the West forever, would they? Looks like they've finally come to their senses and will bring the 3DS spin-off Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir to North America.
As with the main Fatal Frame series, Spirit Camera revolves around ghost photography. This time, players will use the 3DS camera for some augmented reality shenanigans. Included with the game is a 16-page "diary of faces," an AR notebook that will be used to play horror-infused minigames, view video clips, and spawn ghosts IN YOUR HOUSE OHMYGODTHEYRERIGHTBEHINDYOUAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
Spirit Camera will drop on Friday, April 13. Friday the 13th. That's right. They went there.
