Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir Brings Supernatural Thrills to Nintendo 3DS
There's no escaping the scary essence of Friday the 13th as Nintendo
unleashes an extraordinary new experience in horror-themed
entertainment. Launching today exclusively for the Nintendo
3DS system, Spirit
Camera: The Cursed Memoir invites horror fans to immerse
themselves in a chilling hand-held adventure. The game's 3D visuals and
augmented-reality features help unravel the mysterious tale of a girl
named Maya who's been trapped in a haunted house and cursed by a
malevolent woman in black. As players strive to rescue Maya, ghostly
images are intermingled with real-world environments to create a
visceral, personalized experience they won't soon forget.
Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir comes with the "diary of faces," a 16-page augmented-reality book that transforms the Nintendo 3DS system into the Camera Obscura. When the "diary of faces" is viewed through the lens of the system's built-in camera, it allows players to discover unique experiences that not only advance the game's storyline but also add eerie interactive elements. For example, some pages contain movies that reveal past events that occurred in the haunted house where Maya is trapped, while others cause evil spirits to seemingly emerge from the book and into players' own real-world surroundings.
"Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir literally takes hand-held horror games into a new dimension," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "With the augmented-reality features of Nintendo 3DS, horror fans can not only enjoy a captivating ghost story, they'll also be drawn deeper into the action as the lines between reality and the game world blur in unique ways."
In addition to the main Story Mode, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir includes additional modes that highlight the built-in 3D photo capabilities of Nintendo 3DS. Spirit Photography mode enhances everyday pictures with haunting visions, while Spirit Check reveals spirits haunting you and your friends. In Spirit Challenge mode, faces of your photographed friends mystically appear on evil spirits in the game, and challenge players to battle against them.
A third mode called Cursed Pages offers additional game content featuring supernatural twists. For instances, players can confront strange masks that are haunted by a boy's spirit or complete memory challenges to identify and dispel an evil doll spirit.
Remember that Nintendo 3DS features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.
