Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 out in time for summer vacation

Nintendo and Microsoft laid out their first party trump cards to draw the youth demographic to their consoles. Wii Sports was a smash hit, but while critically acclaimed Viva Pinata ended up not being a purple cow for Microsoft. Next month Sony is about to place their kid-friendly game Playstation 3 game in Japan. It’s not an action oriented game where you swing a laser sword and it has nothing to do with Ape Escape. In Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 (My Summer Vacation 3) players become a kid on his summer vacation in the countryside that catches and battles insects. What makes Boku no Natsuyasumi 3 stand out is it looks gorgeous, unlike other low budget games designed for kids. See the trailer and post up your thoughts.


After watching the trailer, I think this is the one Playstation 3 title heading to the market that can pull in Animal Crossing addicts and casual gamers. The real question is will that audience pay up to buy a shiny new Playstation 3?

    If they bundle this w/ the system like w/ Minna no Golf 5, it would probably spike some sales in Jpn, since the relaxing nature of the game is quite enticing.

    Holy crap! I can’t believe that’s 3d! It looks so awesome! It looks like i’m watching a high quality anime movie. If I could afford one, I would buy a PS3 for this game!(and Metal Gear Solid 4 while i’m at it haha)
