Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is the fifth and most recent game in the Fatal Frame series, and Nintendo announced it’s getting a modern update at its E3 Direct presentation today.

From Nintendo:

Experience all of the horror from the original FATAL FRAME: Maiden of Black Water with new remastered visuals, new costumes and photo mode features. 

The main adventure consists of three interconnected stories which lead the player to uncover the horrifying truth behind a string of recent tragic deaths taking place in a forest with an infamous history. 

Take on the role of one of three people with the power of the Camera Obscura and the ability to see the shadows of those spirited away. The story will take you on a frightening adventure through the ruins of an eerie inn, a shrine filled with life-size dolls, and a lake full of dead priestesses.

Each location is connected by a stream of water flowing throughout the mountain. This formerly holy water is tied to the most horrifying mystery of all – the history of death and darkness on Mt. Hikami.

Maiden first released on the Wii U back in 2014 to mixed reviews, but die-hard fans of the series have been clamoring for a new entry for quite some time.

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water will be available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, PC, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series consoles later in 2021.
