The English-language version of Type-Moon’s visual novel Witch on the Holy Night (a.k.a. Mahoutsukai no Yoru or Mahoyo) is available to pre-order. Product pages for the physical PS4 and Nintendo Switch Limited Editions went live on Amazon. The Amazon product page lists a release date of January 27, 2023, several weeks after the digital release set for December 8, 2022 [Thanks, Wario64!].
PSN Store and Nintendo Switch eShop pages are also not yet live. The Limited Edition of the game includes a special “Magician’s Basic Tune” art book and a collector’s box. The Limited Edition is priced at $59.99 USD on the Switch.
Here’s a look at the box art for the Switch version.
A playable demo of Witch on the Holy Night is also expected sometime in November. The Twitter account PSN releases, which updates when new products are added to the PSN store, noted that a “Trial Version” of the game was added to the North American PSN catalog. At the time of this writing, though, the demo is not yet available.

Witch on the Holy Night is an enhanced rerelease of the 2012 PC original, which in turn is based on one of Type-Moon co-founder Kinoko Nasu’s earliest stories. Starring the novice witch Aoko Aozaki, the story explores some of the foundational concepts underpinning more famous Type-Moon works like Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night.
Witch on the Holy Night releases digitally in English on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on December 8, 2022. The physical limited editions will ship on January 27, 2023.
