Today Type-Moon released a new trailer of its latest visual novel Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon, remake of the legendary Tsuhihime.
The trailer showcases the opening cutscene animated by Ufotable, adorned by the theme song “Seimei-sen” which translates as “Lifeline,” performed by popular Japanese singer ReoNa.
Of course, it’s also a good chance to introduce the cast, which will certainly be familiar to many fans of the original.
If you’re unfamiliar with Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon, it was originally an eroge released for Windows in December 2000 by Type-Moon, the creators of the Fate series. It was then adapted in 2003 into an anime series titled Shingetsutan Tsukihime.
It also inspired the Melty Blood fighting game series, and that’s also getting a new game, Melty Blood: Type Lumina.
Written by the extremely prolific Kinoko Nasu, it’s considered the predecessor of that Fate/stay night that spawned the super-popular Fate franchise. The similarities are certainly quite visible.
It has never been officially localized in English, so we’ll have to wait and see whether the remake will make it to the west or not. For the moment, nothing has been announced.
It launched in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo Switch on August 26, 2021. If you want to see more, you can watch the original trailer, more screenshots, the latest trailer focusing on Ciel’s route, and some gameplay.
