Certain locations in the game are replicated from their appearances in the previous games in the series, Fatal Frame and Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. A prime example is during Hour IV, when Miku explores areas of the mansion from the original Fatal Frame. She finds a Camera Obscura in the same spot from the original game, as well as the stone marker puzzle a couple of rooms further in. See more
In the beginning of the game, a flashback of Rei surviving the car crash is shown. However, as Rei is shown getting up from being thrown from the car and approaching her deceased boyfriend Yuu in the wreck, she and Yuu - whose head is resting on broken glass - haven't a single inch of blood or damage on them.
