At Anime Expo, Type Moon revealed that the visual novel Witch on the Holy Night (referred to as Mahoyo by some) that was previously confirmed to include English support, will actually release in the West. Witch on the Holy Night (known as Mahoutsukai no Yori in Japan) is a remake of the 2012-released PC visual novel from Kinoko Nasu (Fate/Stay Night). The Witch on the Holy Night English release date is set for December 8. A free demo is out now on the eShop and PS Store. You can watch the Witch on the Holy Night English trailer below:

I’ve never played or read story details about Witch on the Holy Night before and will be definitely checking the demo out today. Hopefully it can do well enough for us to get Tsukihime officially localized or even potential physical releases in the West for both games on PS4 and Switch. This will be the first ever localized visual novel from Type Moon and a great entry point for newcomers given its story from what I’ve been reading following the localization announcement. Tsukihime’s remake looked fantastic, and I’m very excited for Witch on the Holy Night ahead of its release next month.
Witch on the Holy Night is due on December 8 in Japan on PS4 and Switch.
