English demo for Type Moon's Witches in the Holy Night

4:00 PM on 02.01.2012 // Elliot Gay

Type Moon's upcoming new visual novel, Mahou Tsukai no Yoru (Witches in the Holy Night) got a demo a few months back for those that buy TM's magazine. Fortunately for those who were unable to grab a copy, they've gone ahead and posted the demo on the web. But Elliot, I don't understand moon-speak! Well fear not! Fan blog, Empty Boundaries, went ahead and translated the text for you, while another hero of the internet inserted it into the game proper. 

You can grab the translated demo here (CTRL-F search for 'part-1').

I actually played through the entire demo a month or so back when it was first released with the TM magazine, and I was surprised to find it very different from the usual Type Moon style. While it was unvoiced, I was increasingly impressed with the use of camera angles and the constant switching of positions of the characters. It felt more like the developers were trying to emulate an animated or live action film. Even the action sequences had a unique sense of speed and motion that I'm not used to in visual novels. It was enough to convince me that I would definitely be picking up the game come release.

Because I love you all so very deeply, I've included a barrage of images I took from the demo last month below. Some really fantastic artistry on display with this one!

What do you think, folks? Given it a test drive yet? Leave your thoughts below!
