Witch on the Holy Night

Today, during the celebrations of Aniplex Online Fest, the publisher announced that the legendary visual novel Witch on the Holy Night will come to PC via Steam.

It'll launch on December 13, 2023, and the Steam page is already available. While voices will be in Japanese only, text will be in English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. 

This is actually a remaster of the original, titled in Japan "Mahoutsukai no Yoru" (which translates as "The Night of the Witches”, while "Witch on the Holy Night" was originally the official subtitle).

Witch on the Holy Night Touko Aozaki

The game was originally released in 2012 by Type-Moon, which you likely know for the Fate series. It was written by Fate/Stay Night creator Kinoko Nasu and is linked to Tsukihimefeaturing Aoko Aozaki (who also appears in the  Melty Blood series and its latest entry, Melty Blood: Type Lumina) as the main heroine. 

This is actually a remaster of the original, which launched late last year for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, and it's great that it's coming to PC, which is the platform of choice for many visual novel fans. 

The remaster added full voice acting and full HD visuals. Today we hear that it sold 150,000 copies on consoles worldwide. You can watch a trailer below.

Of course, this makes me wonder whether Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon might get a PC release at some point on top of PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Nothing has been announced on this for now, but I certainly hope so.

In the meanwhile, below you can read an official description of Witch of the Holy Night's story.

In the mansion on the hill, there lived two witches...

It is the late 1980s—the twilight of an era of beauty and vigor.
A boy moves to the city, barely missing two witches living in modern times.

The boy leads a completely ordinary life.
She carries herself with gallant pride.
The girl lives a sleepy, hidden life.

Each walks a starlit path.
One would never expect their paths to cross.
The story of how these three disparate people came together is soon to be told.
