The new year is here and along with it brilliant storytelling with Lily of the Hollow! To clarify, this is a beautiful Chinese visual novel that releases right on time to warm our hearts. Featuring exquisite art style and deep storytelling, Navila Software wants to make sure their hard-hitting message gets across to people in the West. Lily of the Hollow now joins a tremendous catalog of visual novels on the Nintendo Switch. Based on early impressions, I really like what I’m seeing and encourage you to pick up the title and see the magic for yourself. In addition, it’s available for a mere $5.59 on the Nintendo eShop and at that price it’s quite difficult to say no. Operation Rainfall congratulates Navila Software on the release and we hope to see more of them in the future. Happy New Year everybody! Lastly, stay safe.
Long time no see! We just release a new #visualnovel on Switch.
2020 is a tough year, and so it is for the development <Lily of the Hollow>. Thanks for devs and all supporters, we made it live.

So what is Lily of the Hollow about anyways?
What is going to be acted before you is——Blossom in the shackles, but deep down in your bone, suspension and romantic.
In early winter, Red the bodyguard accepted the commission by the noble lady butler Hannah, to protect the noble young lady Claudia for her vacation to the Post of the Lily in the north border.
There they met the servant Ling, servant Karl, the Post Master Patra and the weird poet Frank.
As time flies by, Red, Claudia, and Ling get to be familiar with each other, the two girls get closer.
But, there had been an mysterious atmosphere in the Post——amid that hides the strange flower Lily of the Hallow and the interwoven truth and destiny of the people there…
For a mere remote Post deep in the mountainous country, what kind of secret is hidden?
Guess, hatred, schemes, responsibilities, behind the mist, can the young boy and girls find pieces of their broken heart?
Wuthering silver wind, and hazy purple…
In the corner of deep endless space in your heart, do you remember the fragrance which takes you into your dreams?
