Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Switch review – picture perfect

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of horror. From psychological to paranormal, gore to ghouls, slasher to supernatural, I love it all. When it comes to videogames and horror, there are a few series that I value above others – Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Alone in the Dark, The Dark Pictures Anthology (and Until Dawn), Outlast, Dead Space, System Shock, and so on and so forth.

However, I’m adamant that there’s one sort of horror out there that takes things to new heights, trapping you in a nightmare from which you feel there’s no escape. I, of course, speak about Japanese horror. One of my favourite horror IPs is Fatal Frame, a series that forces you to face unspeakable terror as it explores the various horrors you find in Japanese urban legends and lore.

So, it comes as no surprise that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, a title Nintendo limited to a Japanese audience upon its initial release on the Nintendo Wii in 2008. Well, Koei Tecmo is ready to answer the prayers of fans worldwide as it brings the survival horror game to a Western audience. Naturally, I have the Nintendo Switch version, but even if I didn’t write for a mobile and Nintendo site, I’d still want to play Mask of the Lunar Eclipse on Switch.
