Nintendo has announced that Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water will be an eShop exclusive in North America. The game will launch on October 22nd, “right in time for Halloween,” according to Nintendo. This new Fatal Frame title will be slightly cheaper than the usual MSRP for Wii U titles, as it will cost $49.99 in North America.
Interestingly enough, Nintendo also announced that Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water would be a “Free-to-start” game when downloaded from the eShop. At first, all those that download the game will receive Chapter 1, and most of Chapter 2 for free, and will then have to pay to unlock the remainder of the content.
