htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary is Delayed into February, Limited Physical Release is Revealed

NIS America has confirmed that htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary, is being delayed to February 24th in North America and February 25th in Europe.

The game was originally set for a release some time this fall, but it’s now winter, so we pretty much expected something was up. A new trailer, featured above, was released for the game, probably in the hopes that it will placate your insurmountable sadness at the news.

    Meh, even if it’s £29.99 is still a nice Limited edition.

    I don’t care for touchscreen games but the combination of gorgeous art plus super cheap LE sold me.

    But the prices for shipping are bad…very bad… like 11 or 15 GBP.

    It is hard supporting Japanese games like this in Europe where we miss all the Collectors Editions. What I do is get the limited one from US import and buy the digital copy to actually play since this is the one that will get all the updates/DLC. I like supporting companies like NIS and Atlus, but double dipping is sometimes much to ask of people with more limited budgets.

    For a LE the price certainly is quite attractive, then again the standalone price is also quite attractive. Dammit the Vita’s got way too many good games, I dont think I’ll ever play them all :(
