Natsu-Mon is an open world game that lets you experience summer in a countryside town. One of the selling points is that you’ll be able to seamlessly travel between different sections of town. There won’t be a loading screen or anything to disrupt your gameplay. It promises to deliver a nostalgic experience that’ll remind people of adventures they might’ve had in childhood during summer vacations.

As for the plot of Natsu-Mon, you’re the son of the leader of a circus troupe that arrived in Yomogi Town. Yomogi Town is surrounded by the sea and mountains, making it full of natural beauty. Aside from helping out with the circus, you can spend time with the townspeople, fish, catch bugs, and even participate in festivals and bon dancing. If you’re bored of Yomogi Town, you can even take the train to visit the next town over.

In terms of the genre, it’s very similar to other games that promise to deliver a nostalgic summer experience. Such titles include Boku no Natsuyasumi and Crayon Shin-chan: Ora to Hakase no Natsuyasumi. That might be expected, though. Kazuhiro “Kaz” Ayabe, the creator of Boku no Natsuyasumi, is the writer and game designer for Natsu-Mon as well. Aside from English, Natsu-Mon will be available in Japanese (with audio), Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

Natsu-Mon will come out on August 6, 2024 in English for the Windows PC. It’s readily available on the Nintendo Switch.
