January 12, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

Puzzle platformer A Rose in the Twilight is releasing on April 11 in North America and April 14 in Europe for PlayStation Vita and PC, NIS America announced today. The PS Vita version of A Rose in the Twilight will be available digitally through the PlayStation Store, as well as physically through the NIS Online Store.

On the North American NIS Online Store, there’s the standard edition for $19.99 USD and Limited Edition for $39.99 USD. On the European NIS Online Store, there’s just the Limited Edition for £39.99. The Limited Edition includes a collector’s box, soft cover art book, 15-track soundtrack, a double-sided rose rubber strap, and a giant stress ball.

Here’s the description for A Rose in the Twilight:

A girl awakens in a castle void of colour and time, affixed with the Curse of Thorns upon her back. After meeting a sleeping giant, the two work together to escape. Help them unravel the mystery of the thorns and the history behind the sombre castle.

In A Rose in the Twilight, use Rose’s power to absorb blood and transfer it to static objects. By doing so, colourless objects become red and regain the essence of time. You will also need to make use of the giant’s super strength by lifting and throwing objects to clear your path.

Every stage is a puzzle waiting to be pieced together. The further you get, the harder it becomes, but the greater the risk, the bigger the reward. Discover how to solve each stage as you delve deeper into the story’s grim origins.

  • Color & Time – Without colour and time, the player cannot progress, but with Rose’s power you can take advantage of both these key elements.
  • Blood Memories – Splatters of blood are waiting to be found all throughout the castle, and each one contains a gruesome death.
  • Visual Storytelling – Collect Blood Memories to unlock the past by watching a series of vignettes pieced together by each victim’s death.
  • Live, Die, Repeat – Utilize both Rose’s and the giant’s power to solve each stage, but if death happens to cut your journey short, be careful not to make the same mistake twice.

A Rose in the Twilight comes from the creator of htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary (pronounced hotaru no nikki).
