Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam on October 28th. However, it is not the first Fatal Frame game that released. Prior to Maiden of Black Water, 6 other games were released for the series.
So, with remasters and even remastered collections being popular and selling well lately, Famitsu brought up the idea of a remastered Fatal Frame collection to series producer Keisuke Kikuchi. Kikuchi replied by saying that “no, first of all, we wanted to focus on having a large number of people playing Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water, which is the latest entry in the series. This is because we’re very confident that this title will be accepted by those who are playing the Fatal Frame series for the very first time”.
As for the reception to Maiden of Black Water, Kikuchi says that “it’s been a long time since the original release of Maiden of Black Water in 2014, so I was honestly quite worried. However, I was happy to receive a warmer welcome than I had imagined. We received a strong reception from people in North America, Europe, and Asian regions that will be able to play this title for the first time. I feel that Japanese-style horror is once again being accepted overseas.
