Nintendo’s latest Direct livestream was a little bit different for those people watching the Japanese edition, as tucked away between several game announcements was the reveal of a new Crayon Shin-chan game.
The game’s full title is the meaty Crayon Shin-chan “Ora to Hakase no Natsuyasumi” ~Owaranai Nana-Kakan no Tabi~, and it follows the titular character of Crayon Shin-Chan during a summer vacation in a small Japanese town where odd things usually occur.
It looks colorful and delightful thanks to the Boku no Natsuyasumi series creator Kaz Ayabe, who designed the world of this game and also serves as director on the project. Ayabe’s work on the Japan-exclusive My Summer Vacation games also had similar locations and aesthetics in its various incarnations. You can see eight minutes of the Crayon Shin-Chan game in action, below.
