Nintendo announced during today’s E3 Direct broadcast that Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water will release on the Switch this year. The Switch version will feature several enhancements over the original release, such as remastered visuals, additional costumes, and photo mode features, according to Nintendo.

First released for the Wii U in 2014, the game marks the latest installment in Koei Tecmo’s photo-centric survival horror series of video games.  It was co-developed by Tecmo Koei and Nintendo’s SPD Group No. 4. The Switch version marks the first time the game will receive a physical release in Western territories.

Here’s the official description courtesy of the publisher:

Return to Mount Ht. Hikami and Face Your Fears


“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.”
