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. If you aren’t familiar with it, 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 in the West and Japan. While Fate fans could import the game for English, it is great to see this get an official Western release since we’ve had various Fate spin-offs get official Western releases like the Fate/Extella games. You can watch the Witch on the Holy Night English trailer below:
Witch on the Holy Night English physical release
As of now, nothing has been announced for the West, but you likely can import the game from Japan or Asia.
Witch on the Holy Night Western release price
Witch on the Holy Night will be priced at $39.99.
I’ve never played or read story details about Witch on the Holy Night before and will be definitely checking it out when it releases this year in the West on Switch. 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.
Witch on the Holy Night is due on December 8 in Japan on PS4 and Switch. The Witch on the Holy Night English release date is set for the same day.
