Bandai Namco revealed Summer Lesson: Alison Snow Garden of Seven Days just yesterday, and today they released the first gameplay footage.
First of all, we get a trailer, showing Alison in all her blonde beauty. The press release also included a small batch of screenshots showcasing her “Gothic Rock” and “Kawaii Mint” outfits that will be provided as pre-order bonuses.
While the overall gameplay is similar to the game’s predecessor Hikari Miyamoto’s Seven Days Room, Alison Snow comes with a different nostalgic setting, with a garden in front of a traditional Japanese countryside home. The theme of the game is “healing.”
On top of the trailer, during a livestream we got to see the first gameplay, which you can see below, courtesy of YouTube user bambooshoots game. It’s the first meeting between Alison and her new “sensei.”
While her American accent may be a little stereotypical, she is absolutely adorable as she tries to speak Japanese, asking for help with her studies. Funnily, in the second day she is the one testing the player’s English knowledge, and the game’s Director actually asks to get the third question wrong on purpose to avoid spoiling the “big reward” for getting them all right.
Like the forst game, Alison Snow Garden of Seven Days will be released exclusively for PlayStation VR on PS4. It’ll land on the Japanese PlayStation Store on June 22nd.
The original Summer Lesson has been rather successful in Japan so much that Bandai Namco released several DLC and a physical edition. It was recently launched in Asia with English subtitles, but it has never been released in the west.
