New School Days 3DS Game Island Days' Opening Streamed
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The "romance/survival" game will ship on July 3.
Overflow's School Days adult game inspired a 12-episode television anime series in 2007, and then two original video anime spinoffs in 2008. The story follows the love triangle that develops when a boy enlists his close female friend to help him attract the attention of a girl in their same school.
Overflow, the game label of the developer Stack and the creator of the original School Days game, had announced in 2012 that its Shiny Days title would be the final game the company would make. However, Klon is working on the new Island Days game with returning writer Meizazu Numakichi and character designer Junji Goto.
The anime gained unexpected media attention when its final episode was preempted by a real-life axe murder in Japan. Instead of the final episode, the television stations aired a series of unrelated scenery images and the following text: "The programming has changed due to certain circumstances." The substituted boat scenery images led to the "nice boat" catchphrase that has spread throughout the overseas anime fandom and even into Japan.
JAST USA released the School Days HQ PC game in North America.
