PS4 game with 65word title releasing in Japan next month

first_imgWhen coming up with a title for a new game, developers have to think of something memorable, or descriptive, or ideally both. Really it needs to be as short as possible, or easy to shorten by gamers. For example, Call of Duty is commonly referred to as CoD, and Metal Gear Solid is MGS. However, Japanese gamers are about to get a brand new PS4 (and PS3) game on store shelves with a game title that’s 65 words long.The game is a love simulator from D3 Publisher, which has a long history of publishing some rather excellent games (for example: Bangai-O, Earth Defense Force, Blue Dragon, Puzzle Quest, White Knight Chronicles II, and the Simple series). But this latest game has by far the longest title the publisher has released, and may in fact be the longest ever game title.The short version of the title is simply Summertime High School. The full title reads as follows:Summertime High School. A Young Man’s Notes – How a New Exchange Student Like Myself Ran Into His Childhood Friend On The School Tour, Then For Some Reason Became Super-Popular With The Girls For His Daily Scoops On The School Photography Club Even Though He Only Takes Panty Shots, And What He Thinks As He Goes On Dates During His Summer Of Island School Life.I doubt any gamers will be asking if a store has this game in stock by saying the entire title. And even if they did, I’m sure the employee would stop them long before they’ve finished with a “yes” or “no.” In fact, they may manage to process payment and have the game ready in a bag before those 65 words have finished being said.The gameplay of Summertime High School revolves around the main character sneaking up on girls and taking panty shots without being caught. As the trailer above shows, you can be caught by the girls, and chased by security guards.Will we see this game heading to Western shores? Before Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed was released in the US and across Europe I would have said no, but now I’m not so sure. One thing I can guarantee: if it does head West, the title will be 3 words long, or changed completely.last_img read more
