Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia announced via a video on Friday that it will release the Summer Lesson: Allison Snow and Summer Lesson Shinjo Chisato: Shichiyō no Etude installments of the Summer Lesson PlayStation VR game with English subtitles this year. The English version will be available in Southeast Asia in the following countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia released the main Summer Lesson: Hikari Miyamoto game with English subtitles in Southeast Asia in early 2017.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released the original Summer Lesson game in October 2016 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. 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."
The Summer Lesson: Allison Snow sequel launched for PlayStation 4 on June 22. 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.
The Summer Lesson Shinjo Chisato: Shichiyō no Etude installment then launched on October 12. The heroine Chisato Shinjo (pictured above) is a rich lady with short, black hair, and is more willful than the previous two heroines. In the game, players take on the role of her tutor to teach Chisato about common knowledge of modern society, such as how to use a computer and how to enjoy manga and video games.
