Nippon Ichi’s “htoL#NiQ – Hotaru no Nikki” Gets a Trailer, New Screenshots and Info as Well

on April 17, 2014 5:03 PM

The strangely named htoL#NiQ (pronounced Hotaru no Nikki) from the minds of Nippon Ichi Software gets a new update today, with more info on the ruins the little girl and the fireflies must traverse. Beautiful screenshots have also been released, as well as a new trailer for the game.

For some reason, there are facilities in the ruins that continue to function without any help. There’s also lush vegetation and distorted space in various sections. In order for the girl to traverse certain areas safely, “special gimmicks” become available, such as an umbrella that let’s her float across platforms.

Sometimes the player may encounter certain items (such as a tiny sprout) that flashes a random memory. Collecting all of these items will allow the player to piece together the various truths of the girl and the labyrinth.

The gallery of screens and the trailer are both just below.
