Before anyone asks, yes, htoL#NiQ is the name of a game. A Vita game, specifically. A Nippon Ichi-made Vita game, even more specifically.
The folks at Nippon Ichi say the title's supposed to be pronounced Hotaru no Nikki, by the way--which means nothing to me, but apparently it means something along the lines of Firefly’s Diary to people who actually understand the Japanese language.
Anyway, according to the always fabulous Kimimi (proprietress of the Shinju Forest blog), htoL#NiQ is a “light and shadow action” game--which, uh, also means nothing to me.
Digging a bit deeper, it seems the long and short of htoL#NiQ's gameplay is that players use the Vita's front touch screen and rear touch pad to control a pair of fireflies and guide a girl with both amnesia and deer horns through what looks to be a ruined city.
Would you believe me if I said I desperately want to buy htoL#NiQ when it's unleashed upon Japan on June 19? Yeah, I'm guessing at least some of you would.
Sadly, the limited edition of the game--the only physical version that will be made available--looks to be extremely limited at this point. Plus, I don't yet own a Vita. So, I guess what I'm saying is: don't expect me to write a review of it anytime soon. Sigh.
