In the post about The Genshiji DS, Jeremy reminded me about Hokuago Shounen (Afterschool Boy) and Konami just released it in Japan today (well… technically yesterday if you account for a time difference). The TV commercial shows a few mini games like menko, but it doesn’t show the flow of gameplay. The video below does. Players use the stylus to walk and tap fellow school students to talk with them. If you want play on a swing you tap it. While the movie doesn’t show any new mini-games it confirms Hokuago Shounen is extremely text heavy. Most of the clip is spent fast forwarding through dialogue.
