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

Control a young girl named Rose and a mysterious giant.

htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary

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.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
