Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight Announced For PS Vita By Firefly’s Diary Makers



Nippon Ichi Software announced Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight for PlayStation Vita, a game by htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary makers, in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Hachima.]


The game’s direct and character designer is Masayuki Furuya, who also had the same roles for Firefly’s Diary. The game will have a similar flow to htoL#NiQ, and will be an old castle-exploring action title.


The player will take on the role as the protagonist, a young girl named Rose, along with a mysterious giant, to explore a devastated old castle, and you’ll need to find a way to escape.


In an interview with Furuya, he said that some people felt that Firefly Diary was a bit difficult to play, and some said that it was a bit too hard, so this new game is using the feedback for its development’s balance and adjustments.


The reason they didn’t make it into a Firefly’s Diary 2 is because it was simply just tough to visualize a part two, and if anything, he’d like to do a remake instead. He also mentioned that the protagonist in this game will also go through a painful experience.


Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight will release in Japan on April 28, 2016 for PlayStation Vita, and will go for 3,980 yen.
