TYPE-MOON and Aniplex recently launched the remake of their beloved visual novel Witch on the Holy Night on PC via Steam. For those unaware, the title greeted Western audiences late last year for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
There was clear fan demand for a PC port, so it’s neat to see the companies deliver. Plus, it’s been enjoying significant success. Just one day after the release of this Steam port, Witch on the Holy Night has already racked up well over 400 user reviews. And equally impressive is how 99% of those reviews are positive.
This is a rather impressive feat for a visual novel, even if it is from an acclaimed developer. Witch on the Holy Night was confirmed to have sold over 150,000 units on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch alone, so it’s fair to assume that this remake will enjoy even greater success.
Also worth pointing out is that Witch on the Holy Night had a notable debut on Steam, based on the following chart from the Steam Database. Over 1,000 users were playing the title on launch.
If you’re interested in purchasing Witch on the Holy Night on Steam, prospective players can benefit from a 10% launch week discount lasting until December 21, 2023.
Witch on the Holy Night tells the story of a trio who lives together in an old Western mansion on the outskirts of a Japanese town. Rumors say that a witch lives in the place, and they might actually not be so far-fetched. After all, Aoko Aozaki does study her sorcery in the area under the tutelage of Alice Kuonji.
During the Showa Era (the 1980s), a young man called Soujuurou Shizuki meets the two of them. He comes from a rural area and has slowly been adjusting to the new reality of high school in the city.
In the new edition, Aoko is voiced by Haruka Tomatsu, Kana Hanazawa voices Alice, and Yuusuke Kobayashi voices Soujuurou.
Witch on the Holy Night is also available on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Tsukihime -A Piece of Blue Glass Moon- has been confirmed to be released in the West for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in the Summer of 2024.
