Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon was confirmed for a western release earlier in the year, and now we have an official launch window. Publisher Aniplex (essentially Sony's anime arm) has the title pencilled in for summer 2024, and a 'Physical Limited Edition' will be available priced at $79.99. Digital editions, meanwhile, will apparently be confirmed at a later date.

For those totally out of the loop, this is a PS4 remake of a legendary Japanese visual novel named Tsukihime (literally 'moon princess' in English). The title was never released here in the west, but it's generally regarded as one of the most influential examples of its genre. It was also branched off into the Melty Blood fighting games.

A Piece of Blue Glass Moon is high on the list of most-wanted visual novels, then. It tells the tale of a young man who ends up involved in all kinds of supernatural happenings — vampires included. "Creator Kinoko Nasu has painstakingly disassembled and rebuilt the story, updating the setting to 2010s Tokyo and expanding the narrative. This reimagined presentation will exhilarate players with its hard-hitting tension and realism," reads the remake's official description.
