Learn About Strange Gardens and Corpses in a New Nippon Ichi’s “htoL#NiQ – Hotaru no Nikki” Update

on May 22, 2014 6:52 PM

New screenshots and information have been revealed for Nippon Ichi’s PS Vita exclusive htoL#NiQ (pronounced Hotaru no Nikki).

In today’s update, the young girl can encounter a strange garden with an unidentified corpse hanging from some of the tree branches. Death of course extends to the young girl, and failing to protect will result in you seeing her’s many times over. Players must also be cautious as areas become more distorted and can cause “accidents.” This accident results in some sort of severe headache for the girl.

There also seems to be a large and colorful tree that has greenery surrounding it. It’s an anomaly in the normally dark ruins.

A very weird “gimmick” occurs in one section of the ruins — the girl is affected by some abnormal state which somehow opens a new path. There are plenty of other paths that open by traversing the shadow world, which is only available to the shadow firefly Kagehotaru.

You can look at all the pretty screenshots posted below.
