Explore a mysterious castle in dark adventure A Rose in the Twilight, out 11th April for PS Vita

htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary creator returns with a puzzling and bloody mystery

Hey all! This is Judith from NIS America, and I am here to announce that A Rose in the Twilight is arriving to the PlayStation Vita on 11th April!

From the creator of htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary comes a dark adventure about a girl named Rose, inflicted with the Curse of Thorns and trapped in a somber castle devoid of colour and time.

A Rose in the Twilight

For those of you who have played htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary and are familiar with Masayuki Furuya’s games, you will definitely enjoy A Rose in the Twilight and all of the bloody mysteries and puzzles it has to offer.

A Rose in the Twilight puts the player in direct control of Rose and the giant, and in order to successfully navigate and escape the castle, the two will have to work together to solve puzzles and take turns using their own unique abilities.

A Rose in the Twilight

Rose possesses the Power of Thorns, the ability to absorb blood and inject it into static objects, which then returns the presence of time. On the other hand, the giant possesses super strength and can move large objects that are in its way, or simply overcome any obstacle it comes across. Switching between them is vital to solving almost all the puzzles you will encounter.

As she begins to familiarize herself with her surroundings, Rose will discover a series of grim vignettes where memories are revealed to her when she absorbs blood from the fallen. With this element of visual storytelling, these fragmented memories will help piece together what it was like in the castle before Rose awoke from her slumber, and may hold answers to why she is there in the first place.

A Rose in the Twilight

In the end, what is the cruel fate that awaits Rose? Will she make it out of the castle alive? And what is the Curse of Thorns? All of that and more will be revealed when you play A Rose in the Twilight in April. If you want a physical copy of the game, you can pre-order it today exclusively from our online store. For more information about this game, please visit the official website. We hope you look forward to launch day!

The ending in htol#NiQ wasn’t quite rewarding which makes me think that all the effort I put in beating the hard puzzle to be for nothing, so I’m kind of hesitating to buy this game

Would buy a new vita but there are none at any retail store, argos,tesco even the game website says there is no new ones.

Even Amazon Uk no longer stock Vita’s

@mdogg91 I have noticed the same issue. My vita started playing up this week so I started looking to see how much a replacement would be and I can’t anywhere at all. Would love an update confirming stocks will be replenished asap!

Judith, thank you to you and everyone at NIS for continuing to bring vita titles West and supporting the console. I will check this out!

Vita is qlive qnd well thank you.

Thank you, for simply just supporting the Vita!
