In Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, the lines between your reality and the in-game reality have been blurred like never before. In the Story Mode, you will move forward within the game by using Nintendo 3DS cameras as the ‘Camera Obscura’, a mysterious device that is central to the Project Zero series, to view your actual environment. You must master the mysterious Camera Obscura, use its unique powers to uncover the mystery behind a strange diary and battle against spirits using both AR and the unique Nintendo 3DS cameras.

By using the Nintendo 3DS cameras and Augmented Reality functions to unlock the hidden content within each page of the purple diary, you can explore the mystery behind the diary and interact with spirits who will either help or hurt you. Some spirits will even appear in the real world next to you and you can only see them by moving around your environment and using your Nintendo 3DS to find where they are lurking. Be careful because they might be behind you waiting to attack!

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir offers more than just an innovative story mode, there are a number of extra challenges and spooky minigames to master as well as unlocking the mysteries of the purple diary in story mode. The Spirit Check mode allows you to interact with your own face in the purple diary, after taking a photo of your face it will appear superimposed in the purple diary along with scary ghosts lurking in the environment. Spirit Challenge on the other hand assigns attributes such as Attack Power, Speed and HP to a picture of a face taken with the Nintendo 3DS cameras allowing you to fight a spirit in a special version of a Story Mode battle. The Cursed Pages mode allows you to play through a collection of games using the Nintendo 3DS cameras and the purple diary ranging from riddles to puzzles.

To master the Camera Obscura and battle cursed spirits in new and innovative ways then look no further than Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for Nintendo 3DS, launching on the 29th June. Also available this summer, Project Zero 2: Wii Edition is the latest terrifying addition to the Project Zero series, coming exclusively to Wii also on June 29th.
