Focusing on the concepts of light, dark, and death Hotaru no Nikki (stylized as htoL#Niq) is a brand new, incredibly creative, IP from Nippon ichi Software and Masayuki Furuya. Although graphically the title looks lighthearted, be wary it received a 17+ rating in Japan due to "gruesome death scenes".
The story begins on December 31st 9999 and focuses on the characters Mion, a young girl with amnesia who wakes in a desolate world and Hotaru the player-controlled firefly who chooses to lead her through the ruins, to the outside world.
In the 'World of Light' Mion's movements are dependent on how you maneuver Hotaru, with your main goal being to lead her to safety. You can move Mion or get her to perform specific tasks. In the 'World of Shadow' you control a firefly that can remove objects within the game but you must avoid both traps and monsters lurking in the shadows. Although you have no physical attack, your manipulation of the environment will be an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to taking out enemies.
Similar to the Japanese version, htoL#Niq won't be using the typical 'world switching' mechanics seen in other games, but instead allows the player to control the Light World firefly on Vita's front touchpad and the Shadow World firefly on the rear touchpad.

A new way to play with ps vita.Excellent game from Nippon Ichi Software.
htoL#NiQ is a very creative, bizzare, fun game with some very interesting mechanics, and the first true game that takes actual advantage of the PS Vita rear and front touch panels.
The game has you controlling two fireflies, one green and one 'shadow'. The front touch screen has you controlling the green firefly, with which you move your character, while the back screen controls the shadow firefly, which can fly only in the shadows of the levels.
The real challenge comes in figuring out how to solve environmental puzzles with only the properties of both fireflies.
This game is excellent, import-friendly and will entertain you beautifully. Excellent offering from Nippon Ichi Software.
htoL#NiQ is a game where you take control of the two Fireflies with both of your touch pads to guide Mion to safety. The puzzles are fun and challenging to solve typically what you can expect from NIS.
