In Island Days you’re trapped on a deserted island with a group of female classmates. It sounds like paradise, but before you thinking about dating anyone you have to survive island life. Klon’s game is one half tower defense and you pick which girls help you defend the food supply against wild animals. Each time you choose a character they use a little HP, so you might want to rotate who joins Makoto Itou.


The other half is a visual novel where you can start a relationship with different characters. 4Gamer shared more illustrations from the dating sim part. Island Days comes out on June 26 in Japan.

  • David García Abril

    The art style reminds me of “School Days”.

    That’s not a good thing…

    (Or so I heard, I haven’t actually watched it. :P)

    • Xerain

      You’re not imagining it. It’s intentional.
      These too are waters where the Nice Boat doth sail.

    • JustThisOne

      It’s a spin off. :> Is it good, is it bad? Hmm… It’s certainly a thing, though!

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Not a good thing? School Days is what saved anime!

      • JustThisOne

        ʘ◡ʘ Ahahaha! You’re so funny.

        It is a good thing, though.

        • Anewme…Again

          I don’t think that completely false though, the nice boat introduced a lot of peoples to anime.

    • domonkun

      They are literally the same characters from the same developers.

      Same deal with “Summer Days”.

  • Go2hell66

    o_o what is going on on that island

    • Derek E Nay

      Knowing what the main character does in School Days… He is going on everyone there.

      • TheAquacharger

        Not in my play through! Kotanoha only!

  • fyi1191

    Mankoto, a lucky fella who is gonna own a nice ship ending.

  • Qunton C.

    After seeing how risque some of these shots are, my hopes for a localization are out the window.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Ohh please have you seen the things that have come over

      • MrTyrant

        And we should realize that in GTA we can do worse things. Even playing as women in the multiplayer mode D:

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          I doubt that

      • Zoozbuh

        Really no, when you consider this is a 3DS game, it has no chance of coming over. Even before the ecchi screenshots, there was only like 0.1% chance since it was a visual novel xD

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          It’s a visual novel with tower defense elements, we’ve gotten a lot of hybrid visual novels Lately.It’s not an insane possibility.

          • Zoozbuh

            Oh… really? My bad, I didn’t release it had gameplay elements as well. Well okay, some VERY brave company like Aksys or XSEED could potentially take a chance on it then, if the risque elements don’t put them off completely.

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            They have a picture of it in the article.
            Both companies have done worst so I doubt it would be a problem beyond licensing.

          • darke

            If Senran Kagura 3DS games can get local versions, I don’t see why not this.

        • smashbrolink

          Conception II…

      • Qunton C.

        Monster Monpiece and Mugen Souls got censored for the underage looking girls. Setsuna LOOKS underage and Kokoro IS underage. Setsuna has an image in this article with shot up her dress. Kokoro is in the bath scene. There’s no way this is coming over unaltered if it does at all.

        • Kumiko Akimoto

          That doesn’t mean it won’t come unaltered though and it honestly depends on the company.

    • J_Joestar

      Well Senran Kagura’s CGs had some images that were just barely covered with steam/light glare and viewing angles.

  • Raine

    Aren’t we missing something in here?

    Like… say… oh I don’t know, a DEATH SCENE!?

    • DyLaN

      Don’t want to scare ppl away do we?

      Or they are saving the death scenes for the game. Or maybe its toned down.

      • British_Otaku

        We definitely can’t have beheading directly displayed on the screen, officially distributed Japanese games can only have those on the PC for reasons. >_>

        It could be toned up but just not made clear.

    • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

      As long as they are uncensored with “red” blood :)

    • Ric Vazquez

      I don’t want to relive that trauma

  • Liamv2

    I predict a harem.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      or death lots of death(kidding in the first game there was more harem and less death)

  • makubexnas
  • NorthernPatches

    Nice Boat just got whole new meaning here.

    • smashbrolink

      I don’t even know the original meaning…XD

  • gangrelion

    Wait! You can still get yourself a loli in this game for a Nintendo portable? Impressive! Never saw that one coming!

    • Lordshade

      Forget about Nowi or Nah from FE:A? A FIRST PARTY release?

      • gangrelion

        You’re right! Even though FA: A had nothing like kisses and this game might have much more…Nevertheless, Nintendo is much more daring than I remember!

  • Serge
  • Ecchitori-san

    Is this… umm.. you know.. Er—??

    • Kumiko Akimoto


    • bassgs435

      if you’re asking if it has sex scenes. it doesn’t. due to regulations and stuff, only PC games can have sex scenes. this is for the 3DS. so no sex

  • Shippoyasha

    Just imagine if they make an anime of a Days game again. The Internet buzz for it will be insane. It would probably rival the kind of buzz the next season of Attack on Titan and Sword Art Online will have. Just loved the kind of expressions of horror online when the first anime had its ‘true end’.

  • GHAmer

    Even School Days make its way to the west
    The localization chance of this game should be better… or not LOL

    • Renaldi Saputra

      mybe no, not Arc System Works one

    • British_Otaku

      I get the feeling that there is more resistance for localisation when you have to go through Nintendo (shouldn’t be a problem), ESRB/PEGI/USK/ACB (could be a problem )etc and so on in comparison to JAST USA more or less releasing what they want. >_>

      Even if this doesn’t go as far as School Days, the odds aren’t that high that it will make it unscathed.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        JAST USA this far only localize PC VN one

        • GHAmer

          Yeah true, they never touch any console VN

          • Renaldi Saputra

            console VN are much complicated to handle, unlike PC

          • M’iau M’iaut

            They’ve inquired, but the costs to move into that market aren’t exactly cheap. Steins is the first PC title they have paid to go the ESRB on in ages. Then you have the license fees to the console maker which is not there with PC.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            that’s why console VNs are more complicated to handle than PC

          • Zoozbuh

            I *really* hope because they bothered to go with the ESRB for Steins;Gate that there is a chance they would consider the console versions.
            …Then again, they have done like 0% promotion, and barely anyone knows the game is out officially, so I don’t predict very good sales for it. Oh, JAST…

          • M’iau M’iaut

            They would pretty much need to find a partner for a broader market release. I hoped they would do more to separate their eroges but didnt even do that for steins. Starry sky was the ip they were supposedly interested in on handhelds. Key pretty much slammed the door in their face.

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    It is nice to see that Kotonoha is still in good form.

  • DeAndre Atchison

    One of the characters wears glasses. Gonna do everything in my power to make sure she lives first playthrough

    • TheManWithPants

      I second this. The game looks too crazy to pass up, and I actually liked the first School Days, and have always wanted to see what the characters would be like in a survival situation.

      • Same. I really want to see that too.

        I thoroughly enjoy School Days anime; never played the games, but I checked out some of those endings for them.

        • TheManWithPants

          The remake of the first game, School Days HQ, received an English release a while back, so I’d definitely recommend you to check it out. There’s a lot of different routes you can explore that show different sides to the characters that may not have been included in the anime.

          • I also see Lightning Raidy is available too! NA gets all the fun. :(

            Does JAST USA do international shipping too?

          • M’iau M’iaut

            They have both a Japanese and US storefront, so I would expect you could find a way. Remember with JAST, the h games are just a sideline, it is the Japanese general imports to the West which pay the bills.

            Everyone needs a Hello Kitty Vibrator, remember.

          • Can’t get enough Hello Kitty – in any form – over in the west.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Actually a few of the Compile Heart Hello Kitty Games are available in the West. Again, the titles which pay the bills so they can make games with 8 year old girls in need of a bath.

  • TheManWithPants
    • The harem ending(?)

      • Ric Vazquez

        Best ending XD

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Get that ending and you aren’t ever getting any — since your entire life is spent watching your back and praying every time you start your car that a bomb doesn’t explode.

          You will be dead of a heart attack in just a few island days.

          • Ric Vazquez


  • KazukiNanbu

    makoto? seriously? the fact that he looks like that other Makoto doesn’t help

  • Ren Yuumei


  • s07195

    They need a boat.

    • J_Joestar

      they are on a deserted island, a boat is bound to show up at some point in the story.

  • Zoozbuh

    Ermm wow, this is actually on 3DS?? I see a whole lot more ecchi than I was expecting in those screenshots. Much boobs. I guess the devs got away with it though.

    • Lordshade

      You Still think its the 90s? Nintendo lets third parties do what they want as long as they don’t put in actual porn. Sony is actually worse at this, interestingly, See the PS2 Version of the infamous BMXXX, It was actually blurred, when the Xbox and [B]Gamecube[/B] versions weren’t.

  • chroma816

    I wonder if they’ll be getting lost…

    off of a NICE BOAT.

    • smashbrolink


      • chroma816

        I assume that means “I don’t get it”?

        Anyway, trying to be as least spoilery as possible, at the end of School Days (a related project to this) is a scene of some characters on a boat with the words “NICE BOAT” on the side – considering some horrific stuff that happened only a few scenes before this, the internet made a meme of NICE BOAT.

        • smashbrolink

          The things we come up with for meme’s…
          I’m aware of School Days’ reputation for horrifyingly brutal death endings, so I can only imagine what incidents that boat has seen…

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Not shocked about the ecchi factor considering the game is as eroge as it can get. If I get this I’ll make sure that Makoto dies a horrible death.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      But but its the girls who deserve it. Prove to me 95% of males in a similar circumstance would not behave similarly. :P

      • Juan Andrés Valencia

        I can understand the love triangle. It’s the love octagon that happens afterwards that makes no sense.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          School Days is not the first ero VN series which depended upon harem tropes for its forced drama. It is just the most known among members of the modern Western niche.

  • TheManWithPants

    Maybe XSEED could localize this? IDK. It’d be a shame if it doesn’t make its way over to the west.

  • So how many “nice boat” moments will we have in this game?

  • 永次

    26 June? ummm, any words about a Limited Edition?

    • British_Otaku

      Nope, there is a “Special Soundtrack + Setting Materials CD” as a preorder bonus and perhaps retailer exclusive preorder bonuses like Ami Ami having a Cleaner Cloth.


      • 永次

        Thanks, I will think on it, so much Galge to buy this summer T_T

  • Guest

    Girl in green shirt/blue shorts is cute.

  • Daioh

    Stuck on an Island?

    Murder afoot?

    Why this sounds kinda familiar…
