ON the most unholy of days, Halloween, night time here for us Australians, the good folks over at Koei Tecmo let drop the release date and information around the remake of Project Zero: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse which was originally released back in Japan only for the Wii back in 2008.
I also added this to our latest article about the best Halloween games, so make sure to check that out too.
Below is the press release provided by the team over at Koei Tecmo:
Hertfordshire, 31st October 2022 – The unforgettable horror of a timeless classic returns as KOEI TECMO Europe announced that PROJECT ZERO: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, their revival and remastering of their classic Japanese horror adventure, will be available digitally 9th March 2023 for Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC via Steam®.
PROJECT ZERO: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is a frightening mystery that takes place on a remote island in southern Japan. A decade after five young girls mysteriously disappeared at an island festival, their memories of the events that transpired during their disappearance remain fuzzy. But when two of the girls are found dead days apart ten years after the initial vanishing, the remaining three teenagers head back to the island — a haunted place possessed by ghosts and spirits — to solve the mystery of their friends’ death, while also unlocking the secrets to the memories they left behind.
Alongside the standard version of the game, KOEI TECMO Europe also revealed a special PROJECT ZERO: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse Digital Deluxe Edition. Available digitally, this unique edition of the game includes the Rogetsu Isle Dinner Party Costume Set, and a digital art book (original soundtrack included).
In addition, anyone who purchases the digital copy of the game by 22nd March 2023 will have the ability to download the early purchase bonus: Ruka Exclusive Costume “Marie Rose Outfit” from the Dead or Alive series.
