The terrifying game ever sneaks into Wii
Mio and Mayu Amakura, twin sisters, are at a playground when Mayu pursues a shadowy red butterfly far into the forest. Mio follows Mayu out of concern for her twin, and the two identical sisters are guided to a lost settlement. When they get in the settlement, they discover that the route they followed to get to this enigmatic location has disappeared. While pursuing her sister, who is being more and more overtaken by the evil spirit of Sae, the final victim, Mio must unravel the mystery of the Crimson Sacrifice Ritual.
Players assume the role of Mio in Project Zero II, a Japanese adolescent who searches a ghostly village seeking her twin sister Mayu. The “Camera Obscura,” an artifact that can vanquish bad spirits by taking pictures of them, is Mio’s only weapon against the tortured spirits that have taken up residence in the town and were born from a dark ritual.
In order to move further in the game, Mio must search the entire village area and its main buildings for various objects and solve riddles. Mio will run across various types of ghosts throughout the game; some of them pop up out of nowhere, while others appear during cutscenes. Mio can photograph a variety of vanishing and concealed spirits for points in addition to hostile ghosts. The disappearing spirits frequently speak, providing details about the plot or a suggestion as to how to move forward.
