The game, due out in Japan this summer, mixes cel-shaded characters and more realistic backgrounds to create a nice aesthetic – you can check out the trailer below:Shin-Chan fans were disappointed that the game appeared to be exclusive to Japan, but developer Kaz Ayabe (who previously made the game just as quiet Attack of the Friday Monsters for 3DS) teased a potential exit in the West.
“I will do my best to release the European version”, Ayabe tweeted, in response to a message asking if the game will be released in Europe. A European release for a Japanese game usually means a North American version isn’t too far behind.
In the other Nintendo Direct news for February 2021, here is everything that was announced on the western version of last night’s show, including The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. One of the other games revealed during the show was Mario Golf Super Rush, a new sports game from Camelot with a full-fledged story mode.
