The trailer that came out during the Nintendo Direct from earlier this year shows off how the game will play. It also demonstrates how Crayon Shin-chan will fuse the mundane with the surreal. The Evil Professor’s mysterious dinosaur stomping its way through Kyushu does not exactly make for a normal summer vacation game.

The game follows Shinnosuke Nohara, better known as “Shin-chan,” on summer break in Kyushu with his family. Despite the fact that he is in a different prefecture, all of his new friends in Kyushu look like his classmates back home. He can use the strange camera that the Evil Professor gives him to take pictures and make a picture diary of his vacation. Collecting the various wildlife can also fill up his journal. By catching rare fish or insects, Shin-chan can be featured in the newspaper.

The normal version of the Crayon Shin-chan game will cost 6580 JPY (roughly $60). Those who purchase it during its first publishing run can also obtain an ID code to download the official soundtrack. There is also a premium box version that costs 8980 JPY (roughly $83). It comes with the game, a visual book, the downloadable soundtrack, a notebook, and a special box.

Crayon Shin-chan: Ora to Hakase no Natsuyasumi ~ Owaranai Nanokakan no Tabi will come out on the Nintendo Switch on July 15, 2021. This is the Japanese release date, and there is currently no news about a worldwide release.
