I was replaying Project Zero 4 not long ago, controling Ruka as I had just gotten to Haibara Hospital in chapter 6 (I believe). As I saved my game in the lobby and then closed the save menu to return to the game, something suddenly happened. An eerie looking mask, reminiscent of the titular "Mask of the Lunar Eclipse", suddenly manifested itself in the middle of the loading screen for a brief moment, scaring the ever living daylights outta me, as I had never experienced anything like it during my previous (first) playthrough. It never happened again throughout my playthrough, but now I was paranoid, and dreaded it re-appearing whenever I wanted to save my game. It was a super simple, yet affective scare. Maybe I am just easily scared, but something so simple really got to me, because it was so unexpected.

I knew what I saw, but for some time, part of me speculated if my mind had just been playing tricks on me. That was, until I sat down, found a youtuber who didn't make my ears bleed, and watched his let's play of the game. Twice (only TWICE) during his playthrough, that same mask showed up, and I now had confirmation that I wasn't just crazy. However, like when I played the game, he only encountered the mask when playing as Ruka, which raised the question, if it was an easteregg exclusive to her?

Which leads me to my question, has anyone here, who's had the chance to play the game, encountered this Loading Screen Mask?

I should stress, that while I encountered it while exiting the save menu, this guy I watched afterwards, encountered the mask for the second time when he exited the map screen. So I guess any kind of in-game loading screen triggers it?

In general, I think Project Zero 4 has a lot of clever one-time scares.

I've had this, too!  I never considered it could be an Easter egg exclusive to Ruka, though.  Definitely creepy.  Welcome to the forums.  :)

Well, that is just my theory, because I have only seen it happen during her chapters, so I don't know if it is exclusive to her, or it just so happened to occur for her the few rare times it did show up, by mere coincidence. Maybe it only happens to her because she is of the Tsukimori family? I would love to hear from others though, if it has happened to them while playing as other characters.

And thank you so much! :-) I have been looking for a serious dedicated place to discuss these games!

PS. On a side-note, speaking of the name, is Ruka and Madoka related? Since Ruka's mother hails from the Tsukimori family according to a letter she wrote to her husband, and Madoka's last name is just straight up Tsukimori.

It's possible, but the kanji used in Madoka's surname (月森) and for the Tsukimori clan (月守) are different, so we don't know for sure.
