    Loved htol#niq… bit depressed about lack of retail version of it in EU… but still loved it… loved it so much..

    That is why I want Yomawari…. with full retail release in EU… or at least let me import it…

    The art style looks great, as does the exploration. Hopefully this gets a localization, though I don’t have my hopes up.

    If it does, NISA’s gonna pull the ultimate fuck up and brick the wall between the realm of the living and the hereafter, making the movie “Pulse” a reality.

    HtoL#NiQ was import-friendly (no text except the menus) but the problem was that the physical could be only obtained in limited edition in Japan too. It was a bit pricey when I bought it but now prepare yourself for a +100$ pricetag for the few ones still available.

    Shame NISA is publishing it. I guess I won’t be buying it then.

    From what I heard (might be wrong) R1 retail version received a lil bit improvements. At least when it comes to controls.

    Oh right, NISA. Hopefully it can be one of those times where they don’t completely screw up a localization. That happens, right?

    The game is from NIS. NISA is the american/european localization team.

    Looks very nice, but I was extremely disappointed with Hotaru no Nikki. The game was nearly unplayable. I’ll need to see some more gameplay to be convinced.

    He’s aware. NISA doesn’t have a great localization track record.

    that’s putting it nicely
    it’s such a terrible track record it has earned it a strong reputation and the privilege of being boycotted by a lot of people who are tired of it

    I was lucky being my first from them was Disgaea 4 (Good being it didn’t brick the console!!)

    Still curious how much of the translation was borked. Is it supposed to be as goofy as they make it out to be?

    That’s exactly the problem.

    I think I’ve only heard of one game.

    Very creepy. I don’t think Nippon Ichi has ever had a PC release unfortunately.

    What made it unplayable?

    The main character is really slow and a lot of puzzles are reaction based. Plus quite a few bosses rely on luck (especially the last one).
