A spin-off of the ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' series, ''Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir'' is a game for the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS.

The game focuses on an object known as the Purple Diary, a book filled with eerie images and words. It is said that some people start seeing words that weren't there before and end up being spirited away, later found dead with their faces cut up.

The game puts the player himself/herself in the role of the protagonist as they attempt to help Maya, a girl said to be cursed by a mysterious woman in black. The built-in camera of 3DS serves as the Camera Obscura which the players will use to exorcise ghosts.

In addition to the game, players receive an actual physical copy of the Purple Diary to be used in Story Mode.
