How to Access Mission Mode in Project Zero / Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse

Fatal Frame Project Zero Mask of the Lunar Eclipse 1 (1)

Making your way through Project Zero / Fatal Frame: Mask of Lunar Eclipse is fun, but sometimes you just want a quick burst of action.

Luckily the game has you covered. In Mission Mode you’re tasked with completing challenges such as beating powered up ghosts with your Camera Obscura within a strict time limit. And once you’re done your performance is graded, giving you impetus to go back and see if you can do better. But you might be wondering how to access Mission Mode in Project Zero / Fatal frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.

Unfortunately, Mission Mode in Project Zero / Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse can’t be accessed until you’ve completed the game. So, if you want to have fun with Mission Mode, just make your way through the game’s story first – it doesn’t matter which difficulty you choose. What’s important, though, is that you don’t just turn the game off once you reach the credits. What you need to do is create clear data when the game asks you to do so.

With clear data created, once you’re back on the main menu of Project Zero / Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, select the Load Data option. If you then load your clear data, which has an image that’s lighter in colour to make it stand out, you’ll be taken to a new game set up screen. On this screen are various options including Missions. Select this, and you’ll see that numerous missions are available for you to try.

Initially only two missions will be available via Mission Mode, but by completing those, more will unlock. Perform well in them, and you’ll unlock useful items and more. Needless to say, it’s a fun addition.
