Posted on June 28, 2022 by Nicolas in News, Switch
Publisher Neos Corporation and developer Millenium Kitchen have announced that Shin-chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation – The Endless Seven-Day Journey will be making its way over to the West. The game, based on the popular manga series Crayon Shin-chan, released in July 2021 in Japan, but will finally be available in Europe and North America this August.
The game itself is a relaxing life-simulation-style game, in a similar vein to something like Animal Crossing. You take the role of titular character Shin-chan as you experience a Summer vacation in the peaceful town of Assou. You’ll get to explore, catch bugs and fish, take pictures, interact with the townsfolk and more as you experience the strange and wonderful events occuring in Assou, all over the course of 30 days.
For more information on the title, check out the following story overview:
Hiroshi has to go on a business trip to Kyushu, so now the entire Nohara family has decided to stay with an childhood friend of Misae’s in Assou, Kumamoto.
But when they arrive at Kumamoto Station on their way to Assou, they meet a strange man who offers them an even stranger camera on the condition that they’ll act as his witnesses…
With his new camera in hand, Shinnosuke can enjoy his summer vacation in the beautiful Assou fields and mountains to the fullest. The scenery is even crawling with creatures that he would never find in Kasukabe. And there are townspeople to help and new friends to make.
That said…don’t these kids look an awful lot like the ones he knows from home?
One cool summer night, Shinnosuke witnesses a giant creature outlined against the light of a full moon. Next to the creature is a strange man with a wide smile.
It’s the same weird man who gave him the camera at the station…
And he calls himself the Evil Professor. Following this encounter more and more strange things start to happen around Assou…
