Fatal Frame spin-off in development for 3DS

Wednesday, 31st August 2011 17:54 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Famitsu has revealed that the folks behind Fatal Frame are working on a spin-off for 3DS, titled Shinrei Shashin, which translates into English as Spirit Photo.

Players will use the 3DS camera to take pictures of ghosts, and it includes an AR Notebook which is used in the game as well.

Here are modes of play translated by Andriasang:

  • AR Story: Zero: Purple Diary
  • Working with a girl whom you brought out into the real world, you attempt to solve the mystery behind the cursed Purple Diary, represented by the AR Notebook item. (“Zero” is the Japanese name for the Fatal Frame series.)
  • Horror Notebook
  • A collection of mini games that use the AR Notebook item
  • Ghost Camera
  • A free photo mode where you take your “spirit picture” and pit it against other spirits (the faces of other people).

Shinrei Shashin ‘s date is to be decided.

    I saw this and though “YES! Another Fatal Frame I think Ill comment and show my excitement, I just hope that its not some awful AR game where you take pictures of ghosts in Real Life or something”.

    Then I read the details. ;_;

    Oh well Japan only region locked 3DS so its not like Ill be playing it anyway.

    WHY WHY WHY!? I love Fatal Frame, and it would probably be the only actual true horror game out there if they made a game for the PS3 / 360. Especially with the complete shitfest that Konami is making with Silent Hill.

    Why the 3DS!? Terrible idea… A horror game on the hand held just doesn’t work imo.
