The long wait is over as TSUKIHIME -A piece of blue glass moon- is now officially available in English for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. In addition to English, the visual novel also supports Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese. The visual novel is a remake of TYPE-MOON’s 2000 Windows PC visual novel of a similar name.

Kinoko Nasu, the visual novel’s director, gave a short message to celebrate the remake’s overseas launch. You can check that out below.

In addition to the game launching, Aniplex USA shared the English version of “Believer” by ReoNa, one of theme songs featured in TSUKIHIME -A piece of blue glass moon-. The video has a warning mentioning significant spoilers, so I will not be embedding the video in this article. However, if that doesn’t bother you, you can watch the video on Aniplex USA’s YouTube channel HERE.

TYPE-MOON has also shared content creation guidelines for those who want to upload or stream gameplay. You reach those guidelines HERE.

You can check out the visual novel’s introduction and some details below.


Ah… just how beautiful the moon is tonight…

Gravely injured at a young age, Shiki Tohno was practically banished to a distant relative’s home, where he lived a peaceful life until one day, news arrives of his father Makihisa’s death.

Shiki returns home to find his sister Akiha, who has inherited their father’s position, living with two maids. There, he begins a new chapter as the eldest son of the illustrious Tohno family, finding that a life of luxury doesn’t sit right with him. As the days pass, familiar sights of the past awaken fragmented memories. Then, one day, he passes by a monster in the shape of a human…

Thus begins the celebrated story of TSUKIHIME, first created in 1999 as an indie visual novel. See the masterpiece reframed and retold after twenty long years!


TSUKIHIME -A piece of blue glass moon- collects the two tales that make up the “Near Side of the Moon” portion of the original Tsukihime: Arcueid’s scenario, “Moon Princess,” and Ciel’s scenario, “Midnight Rainbow.”

Creator Kinoko Nasu has painstakingly disassembled and rebuilt the story, updating the setting to 2010s Tokyo and expanding the narrative. This reimagined presentation will exhilarate players with its hard-hitting tension and realism.

Featuring beautifully evolved visuals, animations, and music, TSUKIHIME -A piece of blue glass moon- presents a fresh take on TYPE-MOON’s genre-defining classic.

You can purchase the game digitally via Nintendo eShop and PlayStation Store for $49.99. A physical limited edition is available for both platforms via multiple outlets for $79.99. However, the physical artbook included with the PS4 version has altered content.

TSUKIHIME -A piece of blue glass moon- is available now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. For more information you can follow its official X account and check out its official website.
