Game: Fatal Frame System: Playstation 2 Version: 2.0 Revised: 4/25/02 firstname.lastname@example.org A Walkthrough by AbdelKader Srouji Copyright (c) 2002 by AbdelKader Srouji ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Special thanks to NuConcept for the corrections and advice for finding the Hallway Man, Man Behind, Woman Who Jumps, Blinded Woman, Female Head, and Kirie's Love, and for providing the names for those ghosts I wasn't quite fast enough to catch. If you are having trouble capturing a particular ghost, NuConcept's Ghost List at GameFAQs will prove extremely helpful. CONTENTS Background Game Controls Gameplay Tips The Walkthrough Prologue 1st Night: Strangling Ritual 2nd Night: Demon Tag 3rd Night: The Calamity Final Night: Kirie Playing a Completed Game Important Research Scraps BACKGROUND The cinemas within the game do an adequate job of explaining the premise. To sum up, Himuro Mansion is haunted. Novelist Takamine, his editor Ogata and his assistant Hirasaka explore the mansion to research a new book. When they disappear, Mafuyu Hinasaki mounts a short lived, one-man rescue mission. GAME CONTROLS For those who rented Fatal Frame, this section may prove useful. If you purchased the game, skip this section and read the instruction manual instead. Field Controls Most of the time you'll wander around the mansion in third person view. In the lower right corner of the screen is the filament. The filament glows blue when you're near a clue or immobile ghost, and orange when a spirit is nearby. The basic controls are: Triangle Open menu/Cancel menu Square Run (hold it down to run) X Search/Confirm menu selection O Switch to Camera view Start Pause menu Select View Map Movement is via the directional buttons and the left joystick. Normally movement is absolute; you push right on the stick and the character moves right. You can switch to relative movement (aka Resident Evil style) via the Options screen accessible through the triangle menu. Camera Mode Controls Pressing circle switches to a first person view. Your lifebar is on the right adjacent to an icon that shows which of the camera's special functions is activated. It'll be awhile before you gain any special functions. The functions are color coded as follows: Brown Pressure Purple Slow Yellow See Green Paralyze Blue Search Above the special function indictor is the number of spirit stones you possess. The display shows 9 maximum, although you may have more in your inventory. Spirit stones are used to active the camera's special functions. The characters across the bottom of the camera view light up to show the Sprit Charge of the camera. When you have a spook framed in the large Capture Circle in the center of the screen, the Spirit Charge increases. The higher the charge when you activate the shutter, the more damage you do. The number in the lower left corner shows the number of exposures left in the current film type. In the upper left corner is the life bar of your target. At the top center is the filament, which works the same as in the field mode. Use it to help you track insubstantial ghosts. Directional Button Moves the finder Left Joystick Moves the finder Right Joystick Moves your character Square Accelerates the finder movement R1 or X Shutter release Triangle Turn around Circle Return to third person view L1 Activate bonus function. GAMEPLAY TIPS Escaping From Ghosts: Just going through a door won't stop a ghost from pursuing you. Ghosts can even attack you while you are trying to open a door or climb a ladder. Shaking Off Ghosts: As a ghost attacks you, try hitting X rapidly. You may be able to push the ghost back while taking minimal damage. Random Encounters: On nights two and three, you will sometimes run into spirits not listed in the walkthrough. The faster you make your way through the game, the fewer random encounters you'll have to endure. Spirit Points: As you drive away ghosts, you gain spirit points, which are used to enhance your camera. Access your camera stats through the triangle menu. Using Items: You don't need to access Key items through the item menu. They will be used automatically when you press X while standing in the right place. Stone Mirror: You can carry only one of these at a time. If you die with a stone mirror in your possession, your lifebar will automatically refill to its maximum. Free Health Refills: At the start of each night, your health fully recovers. Menu Options: Explore the other menu options to discover their functions. Saving the Game: Throughout the game are glowing camera stands where you can save your progress. When the camera glows red it means there is a hostile ghost nearby that must be dispatched before you can save. Save points also allow you to restock your supply of Type 14 film. Saving Photo Albums: You can save your photos for posterity using a fairly complicated photo album system. If you're into the game that much, you should buy it and read the manual. THE WALKTHROUGH The game consists of five parts: The Prologue, Night One, Night Two, Night Three, and Final Night. While the ghosts and items I discovered are all listed, research notes, paper scraps and the like are not included. Some monsters and a few items appear randomly and may not always match the walkthrough. PROLOGUE In this section, you briefly play Mafuyu, Miku's older brother, in a moody black and white introduction. Entrance You start at the mansion Entrance. Turn around and go right to the SW corner, where you can snap a photo of the "Child Behind." This is the first of many immobile ghosts stationed throughout the mansion. As you near one, the filament in the lower right corner of the screen glows blue and you hear static reminiscent of Silent Hill's radio. When the static is loud or the filament is at its strongest, press the circle button to switch to your camera view. Look around until the viewfinder circle glows blue and then snap a photo with the R1 or X button. Congratulations! You've caught your first ghost. Grab the twinkling Type 14 film in the NE corner before exiting by the door next to the blue-lit save point. Rope Hallway Ghost Alert! As you walk down the hall, act fast to photograph the Rope Hallway Man. He represents the second kind of spook to haunt the mansion. These non-threatening specters appear briefly as a challenge to your reflexes. Because they cause your filament to glow orange, a sign of danger, you might mistake them for their more hostile brethren. This walkthrough preferences the appearance of these transitory, non-threatening spirits with the phrase "Ghost Alert." Follow the rope hallway and turn right at the mirror. Go through the NE door. Fireplace Ghost Alert! As you pass the fire pit, be ready to look up at the balcony to catch the Man Looking Down. Check out the alcove to the right of the grandfather clock. The Angry Man hovers above the bookcase to the left of the doorway. Climb the stairs next to the grandfather clock. Picking up the twinkling book on the floor brings an attack by the first hostile ghost. Combat consists of backing up and snapping away as the ghost approaches. When there's no more room, hit the circle button to return to third person view and run to the other side of the room. Repeat. Once you've driven the Bound Man, return down the stairs and out the now open NW door. Proceed along the rope hallway to end the prologue. Ghost Alert! After you defeat the Bound Man, if you go left along the balcony, you will glimpse a ghost going out the door below you. 1ST NIGHT: STRANGLING RITUAL From now on, you will control Miku, Mafuyu's little sister. Like her brother before her, she enters the mansion in the foolhardy hope of rescuing her sibling single-handedly. Entrance Grab the twinkling Herbal Medicine from the NE corner and, following in your brother's footsteps, leave by the door next to the save point. Ghost Alert! As you open the door, wheel around to take a photo of the Man at Partition. If this is your first time through the game, you won't have the camera yet. You can only capture this ghost on subsequent times through the game. Rope Hallway Ghost Alert! At the north end of the rope hallway, right after the cinema, turn and snap the Man on A Beam.

To the left is type 90 film, the best in the game. While in this area, you will be attacked by People Killed or some other kind of ghost.

Walkway First, check the crack in the wall on the east side of the walkway to find a stone mirror if you don't already have one. Then go though the south door to the Grand Hall. Sub Quest: Storeroom There isn't much in the walkway storeroom this time around, and the possibility of having to fight the Wandering Monk makes it a losing proposition. For those willing to brave it, the code for the door is: 1312. Spirit Stone behind central pile of boxes. Expect to be attacked by the Wandering Monk.

FINAL NIGHT: KIRIE Koto Room Examine the photographs near the phonograph to find some sheet music. Play the music on the koto. Climb the stairs to the attic. Attic For now, don't look through the hole in the walkway floor. Continue halfway past it, listening for static. When you hear it, look back the way you came and up for a shot of Long Hair Woman. Now you may look through the hole for a nasty surprise. Follow the path, grabbing the herbal medicine along the way, and peep though the second hole for a less horrifying treat. Continue along the attic path until you reach the rafters over the Buddha Room. Turn right at the first intersection to reach a SAVE POINT. Continue inching along the rafters, collecting some type 90 film along the way. When you hear static, look down off the left side of the rafter and snap a photo of Truth Binder.

Descend the large staircase, turn left and go onto the Cherry Atrium porch. When the color returns you will know you are safe. Side Quest: Abyss At this point, if you want, you can go north to the Abyss. By standing on the NW edge of the central stone portion of the dock and facing west, you can snap Kirie's Love out over the water. Continue to the northernmost tip of the dock where the rock pile is located, look off to the NE, and you can snap the Burdened Man. Cherry Atrium Enter the Moon Shrine and go down the ladder. Moon Well You'll find a spirit stone in the SE corner, sacred water in the NW corner, and a SAVE POINT, but don't use it just yet. Use the hairpin at the mummy across from the ladder. Pass through the door that unlocks to the Hell Bridge. Hell Bridge Along the north wall is some Herbal Medicine. Now return to the Moon Well and save your progress. This is the last time you will be able to save. Return to the Hell Bridge and follow the path. After the cinema, two or three ghosts will attack. As you cross the bridge, grab the type 37 film and a little further along listen for static. Look off the left edge of the bridge across from where you found the film for a photo of Man on Bottom. Leave by the far door. Roper Altar After the Cinema, a Shrine Maiden attacks. She likes to teleport under your feet, so when you see her vanish, look down and back away for a close up shot. Drive her away and search the room for a stone mirror. Approach the central altar and look up for a shot of Six Vengeance. Proceed out the door opposite the one you entered. Baptism Path Find Herbal Medicine to the right of the entrance and a spirit stone to the left. As you advance, a shrine maiden attacks from behind. She tends not to teleport so she's a fairly easy kill. At the end of the hall you are rewarded with sacred water. Hell Gate This is the final area. Examine the far side of the pedestal in front of the huge doors. After the cinema, Kirie attacks. Tips for fighting Kirie: * You can only damage her when your targeting circle is orange. * Break out at least type 74 film (you may want to save your type 90 film for nightmare mode). * Don't bother using special abilities on her, they don't work. * Get the pillar between you and her. * She regenerates as she teleports, so its best if you can keep her in your sights and nail her repeatedly. * She causes earthquakes to mess up your aim. * Don't get hit. One touch will kill you if you don't have a mirror stone. * Don't panic. Kirie moves slowly and isn't as hard as these tips may make her seem. Finale Once Kirie is "defeated", turn around and race to the shiny spot next to the stone pedestal. Run around the pillar and place the mirror in its hole. Sit back and enjoy the cinema.
