The Tsukihime game was released in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Switch in August 2021, and it has already sold an impressive 300,000 units as of January earlier this year.

The game showcases a fresh voice cast compared to the 2003 Lunar Legend Tsukihime television anime adaptation.

Tsukihime tells the tale of Shiki Tohno, a high school student who gains the ability to perceive ‘lines of death’ following a childhood accident.

After the passing of his father, Shiki returns to his childhood home to live with his sister, Akiha Tohno, and embarks on a journey to uncover unsettling secrets hidden within his hometown.

Experience the captivating world of Tsukihime as Shiki embarks on a journey to uncover the truth behind a series of perplexing murders, encountering beloved characters and surprising new faces along the way.

Aniplex brought the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch version of Type-Moon’s Mahōtsukai no Yoru (Witch on the Holy Night) visual novel game to the West in December 2022. This release is particularly special because it’s the first time a Type-Moon visual novel has been officially translated into English.

Witch on the Holy Night was an early collaboration between Kinoko Nasu and artist Takashi Takeuchi in the mid-90s, before they founded Type-Moon. At first, Nasu and Takeuchi chose to share the draft of their novel exclusively with their close circle of friends, rather than making an official release.

Type-Moon later expanded it into a visual novel featuring graphics by Hirokazu Koyama, which was released in April 2012. Additionally, two sequels are currently in the works.

The game is being adapted into an anime film by Ufotable.
