The official website for illustrator Itaru Hinoue's (Kanon, Air, Clannad, Little Busters!) Holy Breaker! -The Witch Betrayed Blue Moon Wicca- game began streaming a promotional video on Friday. The video commemorates the game's release to the public after its limited release at Comic Market 87, and it features the game's theme song, "HOLY BREAKER!" by Faylan.

Haruka: In a place where the greatest evil exists... The pitch black witch is an eternal traveller. She is a relic of the world. You must not touch her.
Text: When two moons rise
Text: Legend will become reality
Text: And the power of the weapons awakens
Text: The black witch
Minase: Minase had a prayer. It was a small prayer. It was a precious promise.
Text: The white demon-hunter
Haruka: Now, give me your decision. Do you seek the happiness of the world? Or maybe... you seek its destruction?
Minase: The stars are in the heavens, as they should be. Dreams are in the night, where they should be. Return to nothing.

Key Visual Arts is also streaming the short versions of the main theme "Holy Breaker!," as well as the ending theme "invisible," which is also performed by Faylan.

The voice cast was also announced:

Nana Inoue (Tsuyokiss - Cool×Sweet, Haitai Nanafa) as Minase Tenma, the black witch. It is said that she is the most active within the darkness of history. However, in truth, she is a quack who knows nothing about the world. Her ability to remember things is very weak, and she doesn't even remember things from just a little while ago. She uses one of the ten legendary weapons, a sickle, and her power in battle is very high.

Eriko Nakamura (The [email protected], Love, Election and Chocolate) Haruka Abeno, the daughter of the Abeno family of demon-hunters which has passed down one of the legendary weapons- the chain- for generations. It is said that her family has the strongest spiritual sense out of all the families in history. She is very high-class, has the sensibilities of a rich person, and reacts to matters in an innocent way. She is secretly trying to collect all ten legendary weapons. A bit of a clean-freak.

Noriaki Sugiyama as Kaisho Hida, the holder of one of the ten weapons. He seems logical at first glance, but is in fact war-loving and cruel. He is lending his strength to Haruka at her request.

The roster of characters also includes Tsukumo Izumi, the unvoiced protagonist. A second-year student in high school, he witnesses the fighting between Minase and Haruka. Because of this, he becomes involved in their battle. The kind of person to take various matters into his own hands, he often sticks his nose into anything. He has a younger sister named Tomoko who is currently hospitalized, and he is constantly worrying about her.

The game will ship in Japan on February 27 for PC, and will play on Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 operating systems. The game will retail for 2,800 yen (about US$24), and will be rated 15+.

The official website lists the story:

The world was created by weapons. When two moons float in the sky, the legend becomes reality, and the hidden power within weapons is awakened. Now, under those two moons, a black witch and demon-hunter oppose each other. Tsukumo Izumi, a high school boy who witnessed their fighting, is pulled into the fate carried by the two girls.

The original game debuted at the Comic Market 87 event at the Tokyo Big Sight venue between December 28 and 30. The game's official Twitter account noted that the packaging of the game's regular version will differ from the Comic Market version. The package contents will be basically the same, but the regular version will also bundle a soundtrack CD. A sequel has also been green-lit. Leo Kashida wrote the scenario, Donmaru handled sound, and Faylan performed the game's theme song. The project originally began as an illustration featured on a tapestry sold last April at the Character1 event.

Update: The age rating is 15+, not 18+. Thanks, Leandra.
