Warnings

This game is only playable in English with a fan translation (see Localizations for details and other supported languages).

Tsukihime [Note 1] is an adult visual novel written by Kinoko Nasu and developed by Type-Moon. It is the first title in the Tsukihime franchise.

Tsukihime was originally released independently at Winter Comiket in 2000. In April 2003, it was rereleased with a reworked soundtrack as part of the compilation Tsuki-Bako. Fan translation group Mirror Moon released a patch in 2006 which translates the game to English and optionally can remove the H-scenes.

A remake of the game, split into two parts (Tsukihime -A piece of blue glass moon- and Tsukihime -The other side of red garden-) was announced in 2008, with the first part released on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japanese in 2021, with an English release scheduled for 2024. A Windows PC port was quietly mentioned in Type-Moon Ace Volume 15 in July 2023, with no release date provided.

Essential improvements

ONScripter-EN

Improves the compatibility with modern systems (Windows and Linux), allows the soundtrack to play in-game without the CD inserted, and permits scaling the video to higher resolutions.
After patching the game to English, patch the game to the latest version of ONScripter-EN (prebuilt binaries are 64-bit only).
MacOS users should use WINE or ONScripter-insani instead (requires MacOS 11+). Compatibility may vary.
How to dump the soundtrack
  1. Rip the CD music in .ogg format, with the naming convention track##.ogg.
  2. Move the files to <path-to-game>\CD\.
