Nippon Ichi Software have released a batch of it’s first screenshots from upcoming platformer, Hotaru no Nikki coming to PlayStation Vita in Japan. The new title is due for release on May 19th as a download game with a limited edition retail version available. Below is some of the charming characters within the game.
Mion – A young girl who wakes up in the ruins with amnesia. She will make her escape with the guiding light of Hotaru, a firefly.
Hotaru – A firefly that finds Mion in the ruins, and is going to lead her to the outside world. Although it feels there’s some purpose to its activity, its reasons for saving Mion are unknown.
Shadow Hotaru – Another firefly Mion meets while heading through the ruins. Similarly, it will guide and lead Mion to the outside world. Its existence is mysterious.
It looks like you’re able to flick back and forth from two different worlds, a Light World and Shadow World, while playing as Hotaru. Judging by the screenshots, it’s looks like an incredible game.
