Hunt Ghosts With Your 3DS in Fatal Frame Spinoff

Amateur parapsychologists may find their own homes inhabited by malevolent spirits.

Fatal Frame, a series where gamers battle ghosts with the magical Camera Obscura, has always been scary because it juxtaposes an everyday activity with paranormal horrors. A new entry in the series for the 3DS looks to take that immersion one step further. Using the 3DS's built-in camera and augmented reality technology, Spirit Photo will pit players against ghosts, spirits, and curses in the comfort (or terror) of their own homes.

The exact gameplay mechanics for Spirit Photo are still a mystery, but it will involve taking real photos with the 3DS camera and seeing ethereal horrors in the on-screen image. The game will also come with an "AR Notebook," which will be a key element in solving the game's mysteries. Players can expect to encounter a virtual girl, brought into the real world through the 3DS, and help her break a curse contained within the notebook. The game will also include a mini-game collection called the "Horror Notebook" and a "Ghost Camera," where you can take a "spirit picture" of yourself and challenge other players.

3D technology has promised users more immersive media experiences, but not all projects have actually delivered. Spirit Photo sounds like it could be an AR experience that uses 3DS functionality to enhance its central mechanics and narrative. The Fatal Frame team has not set a release date yet.

Wow. This actually sounds like a really good use of the 3DS and it's otherwise useless camera and motion detection features. I will be keeping an eye on this, it might start to justify my purchase of a 3DS in the first place.

I keep meaning to play Fatal Frame... I have it here but I don't get far before being stupidly scared. Curse you horror games, why you so horrific?! Bringing the horror into my own home might make things worse though...

Why do I find myself wanting a 3ds more and more

Loved the first three Fatal Frame games and flipped tables when I heard the fourth wasn't being localized. Not exactly a Fatal Frame game, but heck, close enough for me.

What a fantastic idea. Now imagine this....but instead a Pokemon Snap game!!

Fatal Frame! One of my fav game series x3
Can't wait for this =)

This would scare the everloving bejeezus out of me, and I would never sleep again. But it's definitely a clever idea for people who aren't gigantic wusses. :p

Agreed. It doesn't help that I tend to play my 3DS most just before I go to bed. Argh goodbye sleep and sanity, you meant so much to me!

Play it in a dark abandoned building with only a weak flashlight. Fun times*!

* Disclaimer: Nausea, shortness of breath, racing heartbeat or chest pain are not considered part of "fun times" and may in fact be symptoms of a heart attack.

Finally, i'll be able to take care of that pesky ghost living in my closet. It's been keeping me up at night with all it's chain rattling and what have you. Now if only I had a 3DS.

Spinoff or not I demand hands come over the edges of my mirrors when I play this!

now is the time to go get a used 3ds. get an old one and get the 20 free games and also the real games are about to come out. Nah still probably getting a vita but then again someday....
