Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a second promotional video for Summer Lesson: Allison Snow, its new installment in the Summer Lesson virtual reality game series, on Thursday. In the video, Alison speaks in heavily accented Japanese. In addition to the main game, the video previews four upcoming additional content releases: "Porch International Exchange," "Summer Sky Singing Voice," "Cheer Edition," and "Watermelon Splitting Edition."
The Summer Lesson launched for PlayStation 4 on Thursday. The player takes on the role of a teacher who spends seven days with a girl named Allison Snow to teach her Japanese. The character first appeared in a 2015 demo trailer.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released the original Summer Lesson game on October 13 in Japan to coincide with the release of the PlayStation VR. The game won a special award in the PlayStation VR category of the PlayStation Awards 2016 in December. Before its release, the project was used as a demonstration of the PlayStation VR.
The game allows players to interact with a Japanese girl named Hikari Miyamoto. Bandai Namco Entertainment released an add-on pack for the game in December titled Summer Lesson: Miyamoto Hikari Second Feel that added six outfits for Hikari and situations in which players "feel they are actually touching the character in front of them."
