5pb. to Release Nyarko-san Game for PS Vita in 2013
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese game company 5pb. confirmed on Thursday that it will release a game inspired by the Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos (Haiyore! Nyaruko-san) anime on the PlayStation Vita system. Haiyore! Nyaruko-san Nafushigatai Game no Yōna Mono will arrive next year.
The anime studio Xebec's adaptation of Manta Aisora's Haiyore! Nyaruko-san comedy light novel series premiered in April and ran for a 12-episode season until June. The story follows Nyarko, an anthropomorphization of H.P. Lovecraft's Crawling Chaos deity Nyarlathotep into a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl.
Before Xebec's television anime, the novel series already inspired one video series and one television series of Flash-animated shorts by DLE Inc. Crunchyroll streamed the first Xebec anime season outside of Asia as it aired in Japan. The second season, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W, will premiere next year.
