NIS America is bringing Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight to the West next Spring, opting for a much simpler name this time ’round.

The Nippon Ichi developed puzzle platformer Rose and the Old Castle of Twilight is officially headed West as A Rose in the Twilight next Spring, with NIS America signed on to bring the title to both North America and Europe.

The North American release will be priced at $19.99US for the standard edition and $39.99US for the limited edition – the two available exclusively via NIS America’s online store.


As for Europe, they’ll only be getting a limited edition physical version – also available exclusively on NIS America’s online store.


The limited edition version of the title includes a physical copy of the game, a premium box, a 15-track OST, a 36-page soft cover art book, a 5″ Giant stress ball, and a Rose rubber strap (in both regions).

Interested? Let’s recap what the title’s all about with a quote from the press release;

“A girl awakens in a castle void of color 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, colorless 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.”

…and have a look at the title’s introductory media;

A Rose in the Twilight is due out in the Spring of 2017 in the West.

    Well, that sucks. I can only get the game physically through NIS? Crap.

      They always charge me like $11 for shipping unless I put in a huge $75 order.
