midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:32 PM) I heard the rumour about Suda51 too
midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:33 PM) I have my doubts that he'd work on another Fatal Frame game, it sounds like FF4 was chaos and he doesn't really do horror anyway
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:47 PM) *nods* Yeah
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:55 PM) ugh... Okay. Well, I got the keycaptcha in, but it isn't working.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:57 PM) AND... I broke it. *headdesk*
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) and I fixed it.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) yay
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) he had that interview too where he said he didnt like how shibata tries to recreate real ghost experiences, so i doubt he'd return  :icon_fallenwoman:
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) i'd like him to though, ff4 was >>>
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 08:24 PM) a mess but still >>>>
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 09:29 PM) True. There were parts of 4 that I thought were really cool.
Cursed Lemon : (08 October 2018 - 01:29 AM) FF4 was awesome in terms of lore and atmosphere.
ItsukiFace : (08 October 2018 - 07:50 PM) Something ultra wicked, this way comes.
ナガクラ : (09 October 2018 - 06:08 AM) I like the atmosphere of 4
Butterflychaser : (09 October 2018 - 02:16 PM) 4 really was the bees knees. Managed to stray from several elements of the original series whilst retaining the overall feel
Emi : (09 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) agreed. I really loved the playable character twist too.
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:13 PM) 4 has honestly taken the top spot from 2 for me, as my #1 fave
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:14 PM) Also i like that the bot account is Baymax hahaha
ItsukiFace : (11 October 2018 - 02:53 AM) Hi, Chou. It's nice to see you here. ☺️

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.
