Mahoutsukai no Yoru: Witch on the Holy Night takes place in the late 1980s in a small city in Japan called Misaki, where there’s a rumor going around about two witches living in a mansion at the top of a hill. The main protagonist is a high school student named Soujuurou Shizuki, who just moved to the area from the countryside. One day, Soujuurou meets Aoko Aozaki and finds himself involved with modern-day witches.
The game’s scenario was created by Kinoko Nasu, the character design was handled by Hirokazu Koyama, and the script was written by Tsukurimonoji. All three of them will reprise their roles in the upcoming port.
