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.
