The Tsukihime wiki last edited by LentFilms on 03/06/14 01:00PM View full history

Overview

Tsukihime is a visual novel that was the first game developed by the then doujin group Type-Moon and was released for the PC at Winter Comiket in 2000. The game was an enormous success and Type-Moon soon became one of the most important figures in Otaku culture in Japan. Tsukihime would later spawn several adoptions in other medians, fan-discs, a squeal called Kagetsu Tohya, and even a fighting game named Melty Blood which featured several characters from Tsukihime. A remake of Tsukihime was announced in 2008 by Type-Moon and will feature redone artwork as well as new story elements but a release date has not been announced.

Tsukihime was never officially released in any other language besides Japanese but in 2006 a group named Mirror Moon created an English fan translation patch for the game.
