htoL#NiQ or Firefly’s Diary is an interesting project from Nippon Ichi Software. This PlayStation Vita title isn’t a strategy RPG even though the lead is from the Disgaea team. Firefly’s Diary is a kind of like their take on an indie development and one of Nippon Ichi’s new brands.


The trailer explains the story, which takes place in 9999 on December 31. Mion wakes up alone and frightened when she meets the firefly. Read this post for more details about Firefly’s Diary’s story.


Firefly’s Diary is slated for release on June 19 for PlayStation Vita.

        • Prinny Dood

          kinda reminds me of navi and young zelda dood!

  • Taylor Koch

    Ohhhhh… Hotaru no Nikki = htoL#NiQ… I get it now

  • Kioku

    Looks really awesome!
    But why the CERO rating is D????
    It should be B.

    • DyLaN

      It mentioned that it will have gruesome death scenes.

      • KuroNathan

        horrific Mion eating plants.

  • DyLaN

    For those who are curious/wondering, the narrator is Maaya Sakamoto.

    Judging by the operating table-like equipment and the tubes in the background, Mion is a test subject?

  • Kaien

    A NIS game with a broad appeal? They need to release it in the west too, and not only on Vita.

  • X_Bacon

    I’ll play this even if it’s never localized, it just looks too pretty and interesting to pass up.

  • Well, I’m pretty sure I’m picking up that slick limited edition set. Does it come with a physical copy of the game? I don’t see anything that looks like a Vita game case in the picture at the end, so I’m assuming it’s just a digital code? (And then, it looks like an art book, soundtrack CD, and two pins?)

  • Meh, need to see it in action. Better not be static image hovering across the screen. Hoping for quality 2D animation.

    • DesmaX

      You can have an idea of the animation on the official website

      • KuroNathan

        Oh my god you can play something like a demo on their website. Guiding mion with your cursor is adorable.

        Edit: and you get a wallpaper as your reward

  • Darkwing7

    My god this game looks amazing, we NEED this asap.

  • Subtitled for anyone interested:

    • Ric Vazquez

      Thanks a bunch

  • Serge

    I’ll have the time of my life while trying to buy this game… How do you even pronounce this?

    • DyLaN

      Hotaru no Nikki.
