Type-Moon have been associated with various games based on their properties in recent years, with partners like Capcom (Fate/Unlimited Codes) and Imageepoch (Fate/Extra). They also have a second project in the works in collaboration with Imageepoch, which no one knows anything about at this point in time.
Type-Moon have also been keeping themselves busy with other projects such as the Unlimited Blade Works movie, Fate/Zero anime, and input on 428: Fusasareta Shibuya de and its anime spin-off, Canaan. However, the last time the company actually released an original flagship title was in 2007, when they ported Fate/Stay Night to the PlayStation 2.
Type-Moon haven’t released a new mainline visual novel ever since, and Mahou Tsukai no Yoru, which was scheduled to be their next major release has been delayed over and over, with no reasons in particular specified for the constant delays. Last we heard, Type-Moon had delayed the title from its September 30th, 2010 release date to “Winter 2011".”
Unfortunately, the latest development in this story is that Mahou Tsukai no Yoru has been delayed yet again, and has gone from winter 2011 to an unspecified timeframe in 2011. Type-Moon made the announcement along with another note of apology on their website.
If you don’t know about Type-Moon or Mahou Tsukai no Yoru and want to learn more, MangaGamer’s EvoSpace, who happens to be a huge Type-Moon fan, did a write-up on the game for us last year, which should prove helpful.
Meanwhile, Type-Moon’s other major project, an anime series produced by Ufotable and titled Girls’ Work, doesn’t have a set date for release yet either.
