Shin chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation -The Endless Seven-Day Journey- Announced for Western Release this August on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4

In some rather unexpected news the Japanese Nintendo Switch game Crayon Shin-chan: Ora to Hakase no Natsuyasumi – Owaranai Nanokakan no Tabi will be making its western debut on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this August as Shin chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation -The Endless Seven-Day Journey- as announced through the new Shin Chan Social Media account.

Developed by Millennium Kitchen and published by Neos Corporation the game follows Shin-Chan and his family as they partake in various requests around town, such as bug catching and fishing, and allows players to freely explore the town while bringing the animated series to life in videogame form. Further gameplay details can also be found on the official website.

Story: 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…

In addition to the announcement of a western release the publisher also confirmed that the game will feature English, German, Spanish and Portuguese localisation options. It’s not currently known if the Japanese Nintendo Switch edition of the game will be updated to support these new localised languages or if a physical release is planned in the west, but we can expect additional details in the near future.

In the meantime Shin chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation -The Endless Seven-Day Journey- will be available in the west in August 2022 for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
