If you’re wondering what the main selling point of the Nintendo 3DS is, the clue is in the system’s title - stereoscopic 3D graphics that really add value to a game’s experience. This is highlighted in Tecmo Koei’s Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir. It’s a spinoff of sorts to the Japanese studio’s Project Zero horror series, which sees you using the 3DS as the main weapon from the franchise - the Camera Obscura.

Using this device allows you to see ghosts and other ghoulish apparitions - and also gives you a fighting chance to uncover the mystery behind a strange diary and battle spirits in an augmented reality environment. Using the provided AR book, known as the Purple Diary, players must focus the 3DS camera on certain pages of the tome to unleash new levels that must be completed before you can progress.

Where these spirits will appear is unknown - sometimes they’ll appear in front of you, other times they will be sitting right next to you. It’s up to you to move your 3DS around the room and try to detect where the new ghouls are coming from. If you’re not quick enough, you might be open to attack!

With extra challenges, mini-games and a mode where you can interact with your own face in the Spirit Diary, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir looks to keep a lot of handheld gamers up past their bedtime.
