Mysterious Fatal Frame Screenshots Appear

We're only a couple of weeks away from Tokyo Game Show now, so it's no surprise to see all of this news pouring out of Japan. Tecmo's unique take on survival horror in the Fatal Frame series is coming to small screens for the first time, with Famitsu confirming that development is underway on a Fatal Frame release for Nintendo's 3DS.

The new game, called "Spirit Photo," apparently makes extensive use of the 3DS' built-in camera and AR capabilities, Famitsu reports (via Andriasang). Not a surprise for a series built around using photography as a survival tool. It's how the camera will be used for Spirit Photo that makes it sound like a very different sort of game than the handheld has yet seen.

The game apparently ships with a bundled AR Notebook which will be used in combination with the camera extensively throughout the game. A couple of gameplay modes are detailed in the Famitsu report as well.

You can bet that AR Story: Zero: Purple Diary will use the Notebook quite a bit, a plot-driven adventure in which players work with a ghost in the real world to solve the mystery behind the cursed Purple Diary.

Also featured in the game are the Horror Notebook (an AR minigame collection) and Ghost Camera, which Andriasang describes as a "free photo mode where you take your "spirit picture" and pit it against other spirits (the faces of other people)."
