NIS America have announced that the Htol#NiQ‘s creator’s latest game, Rose to Tasogare no Kojou will be coming west for PS Vita and Steam under the name A Rose in the Twilight. The Steam release will be digital, however the PS Vita release will also have a physical option. In North America, the standard and limited editions will be exclusive to the NIS America online store, while in Europe only a limited edition will be available for the game.

Here is the NIS America online store listing (including info on the game) for this puzzle platformer:

A girl awakens in a castle void of color and time, affixed with the Curse of Thorns upon her back. After meeting a sleeping giant, the two work together to escape. Help them unravel the mystery of the thorns and the history behind the somber castle.

In A Rose in the Twilight, use Rose’s power to absorb blood and transfer it to static objects. By doing so, colorless objects become red and regain the essence of time. You will also need to make use of the giant’s super strength by lifting and throwing objects to clear your path.

Every stage is a puzzle waiting to be pieced together. The further you get, the harder it becomes, but the greater the risk, the bigger the reward. Discover how to solve each stage as you delve deeper into the story’s grim origins.

Color & Time – Without color and time, the player cannot progress, but with Rose’s power you can take advantage of both these key elements.

Blood Memories – Splatters of blood are waiting to be found all throughout the castle, and each one contains a gruesome death.

Visual Storytelling – Collect Blood Memories to unlock the past by watching a series of vignettes pieced together by each victim’s death.

Live, Die, Repeat – Utilize both Rose’s and the giant’s power to solve each stage, but if death happens to cut your journey short, be careful not to make the same mistake twice.
