Tsukihime Remake Releases Arcueid and Ciel Commercials

The upcoming Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon- visual novel has released two short CMs for its heroines, the vampire Arcuieid Brunestud and the Executor Ciel. 

The visual novel is set to release in Japan on August 26 on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It will be sold both physically and digitally in multiple versions. The physical versions of Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon- include a first-run limited edition version and a normal version, while the digital versions include a digital deluxe version and a regular version.

Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon- is Type-Moon’s remake of its 2000 visual novel Tsukihime. It features the Arcueid’s “Tsukihime” (“Moon Princess”) route and Ciel’s “Yoru no Niji” (“Rainbow of the Night”) route, which have been “disassembled and reconstructed” by supervisor and scenario writer Kinoko Nasu and are set in 2010s Tokyo. 

Gematsu translates the routes’ descriptions as:

Arcueid Route: Moon Princess

Shiki Tohno is a high school student left in the care of a distant relative after an accident seven years ago. After his father’s death, he is called back to his distinguished family home, and his everyday life begins anew in the large estate. However, there were some unsettling signs. One day, while feeling lightheaded, he passes by a woman. His encounter with that woman, who calls herself Arcueid, gets him involved in a battle beyond human comprehension by means of inhuman “Vampires.”

Ciel Route: Rainbow of Night

After an unexpected train ride, Shiki quickly becomes close with Ciel, a popular, older student at his high school. With his best friend Arihiko Inui and new teacher Noel, he had a busy, dream-like everyday life. However, that did not last long. The urge to kill suddenly came to boil. And the tragedy he caused drags him to the depths of despair. Offering an umbrella and warm words, it was Ciel who saved Shiki’s soul.

The cast includes Ryōsuke Kanemoto as Shiki Tohno, Ikumi Hasegawa as Arcueid, Kaede Hondo as Ciel, Shino Shimoji as Akiha Tohno, Yūki Kuwahara as Kohaku, Kana Ichinose as Hisui, Ai Kayano as Noel, and Ayane Sakura as Mario Gallo Bestino.
