Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water confirmed digital-only on Switch in the west, but going physical in Japan / Asia with English support
Recent trailers for the new Switch version of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water have suggested that the game will be digital-only in the west. We’ve followed up with Koei Tecmo, and can confirm that will indeed be the case. A physical version is not planned for North America or Europe.
While that may come as a disappointment, there is some good news. Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water will have a physical release in Japan and Asia. It also looks like English will be supported – similar to Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, which was digital-only in the west, but had physical versions in other regions.
Play-Asia is taking pre-orders for the physical release of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water on Switch here. The title launches on October 28.
