Dokyusei: Bangin’ Summer is a romance visual novel developed by Elf and SILKY’S PLUS, and published by Shiravune.

■ About

With mere months left before graduation, one young man has got a plan. He’s spent the first half of his summer making bank, and now he’s out to break it—and break some hearts in the bargain!

But over the course of just three weeks, you’ll come to love and understand these girls and pick one to be with in this comedic coming-of-age drama.

Dokyusei is a seminal classic of the dating sim genre that first blew Japan’s mind in 1992. This updated remake adds high-definition art, optional modern features, and for the first time ever, a global release.

■ Story

The sun may be hot. The babes are hotter! You’ve worked half the summer and it’s time to cash out—splash out all that hard-earned pocket change chasing tail. But time waits for no man and summer never lasts, so you’d better be quick about it.

Be at the right place at just the right moment and who knows what kind of cutie will happen your way. It’s up to you to flirt your way through town, learning about each girl’s hopes, dreams, and secrets, and maybe—just maybe—take a chance on true love.

The 2021 remake of this timeless piece of 90s nostalgia is back again, ready to conquer new hearts around the world!
