Bandai Namco Games’ Summer Lesson has been a star of the PlayStation VR’s line-up for quite some time. An intriguing title lead by Katsuhiro Harada of Tekken fame, Summer Lesson is a virtual reality (VR) experience in which the player acts as a language tutor for girls needing additional studies.
The trailer showcased at Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan’s (SCIJ) Tokyo Game Show (TGS) press conference this morning revealed a few new aspects for the videogame, including a festival environment and a new gameplay mechanic concerning the relationship built with each character, as determined by a meter (seen in the screenshot below). Further details on these and other additional scenarios are expected to follow during TGS itself later this week.
Summer Lesson has not yet been confirmed for release outside of Japan, however Harada has previously gone on record to state that he was gauging interest and, should there be enough demand, it’s wholly possible that the videogame could launch on North America and Europe.
Having previously been showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Los Angeles, in 2015, an English language version of Summer Lesson has been developed at least until the point of demonstration build. No details concerning further development of additional language versions are available at present.
In Japan, Summer Lesson is set for release on 13th October 2016, day-and-date with the PlayStation VR itself. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Summer Lesson and its potential western release.
