Koei Tecmo has confirmed a release date for Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water, which is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This supernatural horror-adventure game takes you to Mt. Hikami, an eerie but sacred location that is haunted by unfortunate occurrences and a place where the water is believed to house vengeful spirits.
Playing as Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo and Miu Hinasaki, you will come to rely on a flashlight and the Camera Obscura – a unique camera that can capture photos of deadly ghosts – as you explore the mountain to find those who have disappeared.
The port enhances the original 2014 release on Wii U, with “upgraded visuals to match the latest hardware advancements,” a new Photo Mode that lets you pose characters and ghosts in various scenes and new costumes for the main protagonists.
With the franchise celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water Digital Deluxe Edition has been revealed which comes with a digital copy of the game, a digital artbook and six costumes inspired by previous characters in the series. These anniversary costumes will include the Mio Amakura and Rei Kurosawa outfits for Yuri, the Mayu Amakura and two Miku Hinasaki outfits for Miu, and the Kei Amakura outfit for Ren.
Those that pre-order Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water or buy the game within the first two weeks of launch will be entitled to receive a special Ryza costume allowing the main characters to don the “popular alchemist’s outfit and hat” from her original adventure.
Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th October 2021.
