Dead or Alive‘s Ayane is a playable character in Fatal Frame: The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden for Wii U, Koei Tecmo announced.
Ayane’s mission is available after you clear the game. In it, the purple-haired kunoichi visits the game’s deathly mountain setting to save a new character named Tsumugi Katashina.
Tsumugi, voiced by Natsumi Takamori, in contrast to her older half-sister who was nurtured with affection, was alienated from her family and grew up with a complex. She is not able to communicate well with others, and after desperate attempts at suicide, she is spirited away to Hikaiyama mountain.
To track down Tsumugi, Ayane will follow her “Purple Thread” navigation. Ayane’s gameplay is based around sneaking. She must sneak around and avoid ghosts. If noticed, players must react in accordance with the situation. You can use the “Soul Stone Lamp” to temporarily halt their movement and cut your way to safety.
Fatal Frame: The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden is due out for Wii U in Japan tomorrow, September 27.
