Popular PlayStation VR title Summer Lesson already offers players two students to teach, Hikari Miyamoto and Allison Snow, and now publisher Bandai Namco are teasing a third.
A teaser showing a silhouette of a new student appeared on website Famitsu, along with news that the name of the new student was Chisato Shinjo. Little has been revealed about the new character so far, save from a mention in Summer Lesson: Allison Snow, where there was a brief line about a young woman living in a large mansion.
The reveal of the teaser on this date, 31st August, is regarded as significant by fans of Summer Lesson, since that date marks the end of summer. The developers have not said much about their plans for Chisato Shinjo, save to mention that they are working on “Something different for those seven days of Summer.”
No price or release date was mentioned, nor is there further word on plans for an official Western release of the Summer Lesson titles. At the moment, Western fans are having to content themselves with PlayStation VR bundles available through importers.
The previous new student Alison Snow was made available in three bundles through the Japanese PlayStation store in late June, with the most basic version costing 2,980 yen. Another two bundle packs were also available, which added extra DLC content and more costume options.
It seems likely that Summer Lesson: Chisato Shinjo will also come with some DLC bundles, though Western fans will remain disappointed at the lack of official release for their region.
