Hertfordshire, 15th June 2021 – Today, KOEI TECMO Europe unveiled that their iconic Japanese horror-adventure series, PROJECT ZERO, will be making its way to current generation platforms, with PROJECT ZERO: MAIDEN OF BLACK WATER releasing on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam® across Europe in 2021. To celebrate the exciting news, KOEI TECMO has released an all-new reveal trailer of the game to give horror fans a taste of the terrifying supernatural title that awaits them later this year.
PROJECT ZERO: MAIDEN OF BLACK WATER takes players to the eerie Mt. Hikami, a sacred location haunted by bizarre and unfortunate occurrences – and a place where the water is believed to be housed by vengeful spirits. Through the eyes of Yuri Kozukata, Ren Hojo, and Miu Hinasaki, they will rely on just a flashlight and a unique camera – the Camera Obscura - with the ability to take pictures of ghosts, as they explore the mountain to find those who have disappeared. Will players be able to repel the deadly ghosts and uncover the mysteries surrounding Mt. Hikami?
The title is an enhanced version of 2014’s Wii U release of the same name, which includes upgraded visuals to match the latest hardware advancements – offering an even more terrifying and immersive experience. Fans of this iconic series can not only play on their favourite gaming platform, but will also be able to enjoy an all-new Photo Mode, allowing them to set-up characters and ghosts in various scenes and adjust their poses in order to create the perfect spooky picture. In addition, there will be a selection of new costumes for the main protagonists, helping make every picture in your collection more unique.
