NIS announces Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight for PS Vita from the director of htoL#NiQ

Postby Kresnik » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:46 am

The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation this week reveals Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight for PS Vita from Nippon Ichi Software.

Due out on April 28 for 3,980 yen in Japan, the game is directed and features character design by htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary director Masayuki Furuya. It follows the flow of The Firefly Diary and has players exploring an old castle.

Players will control a young girl named Rose and a mysterious giant as they explore and try to escape a ruined old castle covered in thorns.

Speaking with Dengeki PlayStation, Furuya said that he heard concerns about The Firefly Diary being too difficult and wanted to adjust the balance during development for Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight. Furuya notes that this isn’t The Firefly Diary 2, as a sequel was hard to envision, and that he’d want to remake the first game before doing a followup.

This time, the main girl will also have a dreadful experience.

Nippon Ichi Software launched a teaser website for Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight late last week.

So it's a spiritual sequel, like "Night Watch, but is going to be designed more akin to how "htoL#NiQ" worked. Works for me.

As it was mentioned in the interview, making a direct sequel would kind of be difficult considering how it ended. Though I do have to wonder if there will be some loose connections or references. Like I could see this game taking place in the same world as "htoL#NiQ" but at a different locale or even maybe a different time.

Besides that, that remark about a remastering of "htoL#NiQ" sounds interesting. Heck, even a port to the PS4 or even Steam would work for me. Gotta spread the love...though considering its reception, probably not everyone would really appreciate it. There were a lot of complaints about the difficulty and reviews trashed it for that, though I thought the game was rather on the easy side.

The comment was about remaking it (so changing many things about the game, including difficulty) rather than remastering it. However, I don't see much of a market for it to be honest so I doubt it'd get made. Better to push forward with new ideas.

If it can retain the same atmosphere, while making improvements to the controls, then count me as an interested party!
I'm too damn lazy to put anything clever here.

Posting this here for now until it officially gets its own section.

Well, NISA just got announced it, "Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight" is coming over, renamed as "A Rose in the Twilight". Store Page for it here. And with no bundle shenanigans this time either.

I'll be preordering the LE as soon as I get the chance to.
