Square Enix’s cute smartphone girls will teach you english
Only for the Japanese market, but surely worth a mention. Square Enix (the guy’s from Final Fantasy, Parasite Eve, ..) created a smartphone app for the Japanese who like to refresh their English knowledge. Now they give you the chance to do this in a bishoujo-rich adventure game entitled “Summer Story”.
The essence of the game resides in making the player to converse with four pretty girls and get educated during gameplay. The main characters are:
- A flower-maniac daughter of an English aristrocrat
- An Australian chick who likes to work as a tour guide
- A Japanese/English teacher keen to educate you
- An anime-obsessed American blonde bimbo
The game was developed with the help of a native English speaker from NHK’s educational program. This should guarantee the concept to actually “work”.
Price for iPhone/iPad app: 800 Yen
