Fatal Frame has always been known for having the stories in their games have different endings. So it would be weird for the fifth game of the series to not have different conclusions to the story. Fatal Frame: Maiden of the Black Water has a whopping total of eight possible endings.
There are four possible endings you can achieve with Ren and two each for Mui and Yuri. A good thing to note is that these endings aren’t that hard to reach since all you need to do is make the right decisions in the last mission of the last chapter of the game to achieve the different endings. It’s also important to note that the difficulty doesn’t matter for getting the different endings.
This guide will try to refrain from spoilers as much as it can so you have been warned.
