WHAT: 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. In addition to hands-on game play, guests will enjoy scares, food and beverages.
Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir invites players to experience immersive supernatural thrills they won’t soon forget using the built-in camera functions and augmented-reality features of the Nintendo 3DS system. Players must use the “diary of faces” – a 16-page AR Book included with the game – to view ghostly images and interact with the world in the story. The lines between reality and fiction blur in this spine-tingling horror adventure. More information about Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is available at http://spiritcamera.nintendo.com.
