Type-Moon revealed on Monday the third promo video for Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon-, the remake of Type-Moon's Tsukihime dōjin visual novel game. The video reveals two new characters and unveils the game's cover art.

The newly announced cast includes:

Ai Kayano as Noel, an English and physical education teacher who transferred to Shiki's school

Ayane Sakura as Mario Gallo Bestino, an acting young priest who has been assigned to Japan from the church

Type-Moon unveiled the game's cover art drawn by character designer Takashi Takeuchi:

The game will launch for PlayStation 4 and Switch on August 26.

The game will feature a different voice cast from the 2003 Lunar Legend Tsukihime television anime adaptation:

Kinoko Nasu is returning to write the scenario and direct the remake, and Takashi Takeuchi is also back as character designer. ReoNa is performing the theme song "Seimeisen" (Lifeline) with the label Sacra Music, and ufotable is animating the opening.

Type-Moon's original doujin game debuted at Winter Comic Market in 2000. The 12-episode anime adaptation premiered in 2003 and Geneon Entertainment released the series on DVD in North America.

Sasakishonen drew a manga based on Tsukihime beginning in 2004, and DrMaster released six of the 10 volumes of the series in English. Takeru Kirishima began a manga based on the sequel, Melty Blood, in 2006 and Kadokawa Shoten published the ninth and final compiled volume in 2010.
