Nintendo eShop Update: FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure

Fans of Japanese horror should be especially pleased by this week’s eShop update, which is highlighted by the North American arrival of FATAL FRAME: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse. Originally released as a Japanese Wii exclusive back in 2008, 15 years later the game is finally available in the rest of the world via the Switch (and every other current-gen platform, too). Given that the previous Fatal Frame localization, Maiden of Black Water, was held back a little by how it felt like the game was built for the Wii U, it’ll be interesting to see whether Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is able to work without the Wii’s motion gimmicks.

Elsewhere in this week’s eShop update, we have a sequel to the surreal puzzler Figment, the newest entry in the Legend of Heroes series, and true-to-life skateboarding action in Session: Skate Sim.

See the full list below, and also check out Nintendo’s updated Game Store list, here.

Now they have returned to the island as teenagers to discover the truth of their haunting past.
