The Title Of This Creepy Japanese Dating Game For PS4 Is 65 Words Long


Video games have a bit of a reputation when it comes to names. Modifiers like "Super," "Ultra," "Game of the Year," or "Remastered" are tossed around all the time to make a title seem more exciting than it really is.

Those are, of course, nothing compared to the name of an upcoming Japanese game from D3 Publishers, which may be the longest video game title in the history of video game titles. The full title (via Geek) is as follows:

Summertime High School. A Young Man's Notes - How a New Exchange Student Like Myself Ran Into His Childhood Friend On The School Tour, Then For Some Reason Became Super-Popular With The Girls For His Daily Scoops On The School Photography Club Even Though He Only Takes Panty Shots, And What He Thinks As He Goes On Dates During His Summer Of Island School Life.

Yes, this is an actual video game being made, one where the entire point is to take creepy up-skirt photos of high school girls without getting caught. But it's okay, because "for some reason" the protagonist is super popular with the girls. I'm sure they don't mind.

It may sound super strange to western audiences, but "dating" games like this are pretty common in Japan, even if the 65-word-long title isn't.

D3 Publishers has released a number of Japanese titles in the United States over the years, ranging from the sci-fi B movie action of the Earth Defense Force series to Puzzle Quest. No word on whether or not this title will be coming to North America, but it will be released on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in Japan.

Stay weird, Japan. Whether it is a fried chicken smartphone case or an up-skirt photography simulator, don't ever change.
