Butterflychaser : (12 April 2018 - 11:53 PM) I agree- I much prefer the pre 4 set out of the games, though it's probably nostalgia in my personal case
Butterflychaser : (12 April 2018 - 11:53 PM) Oh well, I'm just glad the series is still alive and this forum is too...kinda. It's nice coming here from time to time
PikaLink91 : (13 April 2018 - 07:27 AM) I had honestly hoped for a bit more activity, oh well, guess I am just late to the party...
Hex : (19 April 2018 - 08:04 PM) Will anyone be replaying 4 for its 10th anniversary in July?   :icon_ruka:
PikaLink91 : (19 April 2018 - 09:21 PM) I was actually thinking about replaying it tonight. Is my favorite afterall.
midwinter : (19 April 2018 - 09:54 PM) I'll definitely be doing that at some point - I still need to get proper quality costume images for the wiki

(I put this here since I have no idea if it's spoilery or not, and it might become so with later updates)


So far from what I've seen the game will take place on and/or around (that is the base of) Mount Hikami. There appears, from the screenshots on the official site, to be some sort of tourist village(?) at the base of the mountain with a angled train car that would take people up the mountain. That village seems to have modern convinces like sidewalks, phone booths and street lights. Maybe this is where Yuri and friend's have their shop and live at? It would be interesting and quite scary to see ghosts in this area I think. Possibly the shop is something of a "safe" zone like in 3, that will become less safe as time goes on?


The forest lies outside of the village or surrounds it, I'm guessing this is where you will find the older, dilapidated structures seen in the screenshots and where most of the spooky fun happens at. As you progress through the game you will work your way up part of the mountain to a shine to fight the final boss?


Since I doubt any sane human would walk in the rain up a mountain multiple times in the dead of night in rain, maybe the main gameplay will take place as an astral-projection or dream like in 3? Which might explain Yuri waking up in a pond of dead, ancient kimono ghost people. :P

I assume because of that video of the CCTV we will be able to explore the shop, looks to be quite spacious lookimg forward to having a looksie. If this is true does this mean it's a fatal frame 3 scenario where yuri will come and go from the mountain, the premise of her looming for someone doesn't really fit that bill though maybe the story will evolve from there. As for the mountain itself well I think there will be lots of areas that involve water including that lake, maybe there will be shrine like structures similar to fatal frame 3. I wonder if we can assume that they are looking at the third game for inspiration. There may also be a network of waterways since water has some significance here. Seriously there's a lot you can dig up from that trainer I'll come back if I think of more scenarios

Those mountainous areas really make me feel they might have a Siren-eske vibe; you know, nature, dilapidated abandoned buildings and the like. I'm really picturing something like this:

Perhaps it's just me, but the theme of suicides happening in the mountains immediately makes me think of Aokigahara, Japan's Suicide Forest. I wonder if they are tapping into that kind of theme or not.


I would also like to theorize about the mountain and water in general. I am going to guess that there is some kind of a sacred site underground upon the mountain, Fatal Frame always has us go deep underground at some point to close off the gate of the underworld as it were. I'm wondering too if we won't be following water as it worms it's way into the mountain, thus going deep inside the earth. Also about the water, I wonder if it will be strictly a dangerous thing(drowned ghosts and all that) or if the mountain will have any kind of safe, purification areas(being that waterfalls, etc have been a source of religious purification in Japan).


I do wonder about that shop too. Perhaps we will get some more interesting inventory items like we have in the past in the form of the crystal radio, cassette player, etc. It would be interesting if they would introduce something different this time.

I'm hoping this whole midnight/witching hour theme will be used somehow - like, some of the buildings are hidden unless you visit the mountain at midnight, something like that? That would be one way to account for Yuuri's decision to go hiking in the middle of the night.


One of the areas I'm weirdly obsessed with is that long, straight road with a phone box that shows up on the website. I want to know where that comes in! When I watch the video it seems like there's something red catching the light up ahead, but the video ends before you can see what it is. Maybe a roadblock with traffic cones, or a row of torii gates?


How about all those dolls? There's the shrine with dolls outside, and an indoor room with another doll stand... maybe they were inspired by that doll village where the woman makes dolls to replace the people who have died or left. Perhaps Onion-san spends her afterlife making dolls to represent all the suicides at Hikamiyama.
