Confuse: Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water receives erratic launch trailer

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water sales launch trailer

Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water just launched on Nintendo Switch today. Although, it is missing some key extras from the original Wii U game. Regardless, it looks like using the Camera Obscura to destroy ghouls is still a fun time, even without a tablet. The Big N sought fit to remind players of the latest Wii U port by bestowing Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water with a launch trailer. It’s…weird.

This trailer for Fatal Frame switches gears a lot

Take a look at the clip below:

Is it just me, or is the footage a little inconsistent? You start out with a terrifying ghost, which leads into piano music with emotionless voice acting, which then culminates with pop music and photography action. It’s wild!

As a reminder, gamers can purchase either the basic or Digital Deluxe Edition of the title. The Standard Edition costs $39.99 and boasts an improved resolution, updated controls, and new outfits and accessories. The Digitial Deluxe Edition is $54.99 and includes a 20th-anniversary digital artbook and costumes from past entries in the series. You can also buy this content separately as DLC for $15.99. Finally, fans can get an Atelier Ryza outfit for free if you nab the game within the first two weeks from launch. Full details are located here.
