Its finally happening – Tsukihime Remake

Hello everyone, it has been awhile. Hope everyone is doing great and wishing all a Happy Chinese New Year.



Yes, you read the title right. There is great reason to celebrate for Type-Moon fans. Tears were shed when Type-Moon released the trailer for the Tsukihime remake, Tsukihime – A piece of blue glass moon, on 31 Dec 2020. After waiting for what seemed like an eternity, prayers were finally answered.



A brief overview of Tsukihime for those unfamiliar. Tsukihime is a visual novel written by Kinoko Nasu and developed by the game company, Type-Moon, way back in the year 2000. Type-Moon found much success with Tsukihime back then but quickly became overshadowed by the release of Fate/stay night in 2004 which was also developed by them. Fate/stay night is another visual novel and brainchild of Nasu which would quickly propel him into one of the most prominent visual novelists in Japan.



Being a huge fan of type-moon, I had to give Tsukihime a try and first played the visual novel back in 2014. Tsukihime (2000) had an amazing storyline but was admittedly held back by its outdated art and visuals. A remake was announced by Type-Moon in 2008 but would only come to materialize 13 years later, in Q3 of 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. As for the reason of the significant delay, fans could only speculate but it was likely due to Nasu being occupied by other projects related to the Fate series such as Fate/Grand Order. 



Would I recommend you to try playing the Tsukihime remake? Yes, I would. If you enjoy an intriguing storyline with what seems to be god-tier visuals, then you might want to consider playing the remake of this popular visual novel from the 2000s. However, do bear in mind that being a visual novel, the gameplay will be just reading texts for the most part and is definitely not for everyone. I have included the trailer released by Type-Moon above for Tsukihime – A piece of blue glass moon. The hype is real!




You can only imagine the pure joy felt by the fans, myself included, from the announcement and trailer of the Tsukihime remake. The wait is finally over. As Kotomine Kirei from Fate/Stay night would say “Yorokobe Shounen. Your wish will, at last, come true.”
