'Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir' (3DS) Public Preview Event

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is an immersive, horror-themed game that uses its built-in camera functions and augmented-reality features to enhance a sinister, spellbinding storyline, incorporating players own pictures and surroundings to create a personalized 3D horror experience.

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir introduces a mysterious girl named Maya who has been hiding in the shadows of an old house. Players must help Maya break free from a terrifying curse by aiding her escape from the clutches of a malevolent woman in black. By using the Nintendo 3DS system's built-in camera, players can view Maya in their own surroundings as the game's eerie events unfold.

Included with the game is a 16-page AR Book, known as the "diary of faces" in the game's Story Mode, which serves as a gateway into this haunting experience. As players view the book's images through the lenses of the Nintendo 3DS camera, they enter its pages using augmented reality. At times, pages will come to life in the form of movies, revealing past events that offer insights into the mysteries surrounding the diary. In other moments, characters will emerge from the pages into the player's world via augmented reality in the form of evil spirits that attack from all directions.

Nintendo is set to give consumers a chilling first look at Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir for the Nintendo 3DS system. On March 30, an authentic haunted hotel will be open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, giving consumers age 18 older and the chance to get hands-on time with the new horror-themed game in advance of its North American launch on Friday, April 13.
