This newest entry of the series is based on the recent Japan-exclusive remake of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon. As such, this title acts as a reboot for the fighting series, including HD environments and upgraded visuals reflecting the remake of the visual novel. In addition, French-Bread has also rebuilt the battle system to include multiple combos that can be pulled even by newcomers.
