Suda51 talks about the game:

 

Both the Short Peace anime anthology and Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day are coming to PlayStation 3 this spring. Here's how Namco Bandai sums up the game's plot:

 

By day, Ranko Tsukigime is an average high school girl who lives alone, but at night she is a deadly hitman who deftly assassinates her targets.  One fateful night as Ranko heads out to eliminate her next target, a demonic enemy organization creeps up and threatens the lives of Ranko and her friends. Players will put their reflexes and quick judgment to the test in the fast-paced platforming gameplay that will have them blazing through dangerous, obstacle-ridden environments to flee from an ominous enemy looming close behind.
