htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary out this February
htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary is coming to PS Vita in NOrth America on February 24.
Santa Ana, CA (November 18, 2014) – NIS America is excited to announce that the puzzle action game, htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary will be available February 24 in North America as a PlayStation®Vita exclusive! Digital copies of the game will be available on PSN and physical copies will be available exclusively for the US through our new NIS Online Store. This title will also be available in Europe on February 25 as a digital-only release. In this atmospheric title, you’ll use the Vita’s touchscreen and rear touch pad to navigate a young girl through dangerous ruins. Two fairies—one operating in light, and the other in shadow—must work in tandem to uncover this girl’s memories and save her from the darkest of fates.
About the game:
In the depths of a labyrinthine ruin, a young girl named Mion rises from a deep sleep. Lost, alone, and with no memory of how she got here or where her parents are, she is greeted by two fireflies—one composed entirely of light, and another who lurks among the shadows. By shifting between a world of light and a world of shadows, these two fireflies must work together to recover Mion's memories and lead her out of the ruins, where voracious shadow beasts, ancient machines, and treacherous traps lie in wait to bar her path. But what secrets do Mion's lost memories contain? What is the connection between her, the ruins, and the fireflies lighting her escape? The answers may reveal a deeper darkness—one that must be faced from within...

Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl Standard Edition Available in North America on December 9
Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl is coming to Bluray/DVD release on December 9!
Santa Ana, CA (November 17, 2014) – NIS America is thrilled to announce that Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl Complete Series Standard Edition, the out-of-this-world comedy involving a group of teenagers living in “the city of aliens,” will be available for purchase across North America on December 9. This title comes as a two Blu-ray, two DVD disc set with a number of on-disc bonus features. Makoto, an ordinary high school student, moves in with his aunt and meets his cousin Erio for the first time. She introduces herself as an alien. This lone experience marked when his normal adolescent life took a turn for the extraordinary.
About the show: Makoto Niwa just moved to the city to live with his aunt Meme after his parents were reassigned to work overseas. He is perfectly fine with that, saying it will give him the chance to live the dream life of an adolescent boy. He keeps track of the things he does by assigning "points" to them—positive or negative—and adds them up on a regular basis to grade his adolescent life. And then he discovers Meme has a secret daughter (and self-proclaimed alien) named Erio. He finds her rolling around by the front door of Meme's house wrapped up in a futon. It is then that he realizes that his dream adolescent life will not come true, and he begins a life of experiences that are out of this world.
