This is an official thread about Shiny Days, the sequel to School Days and an "HQ" remake of Summer Days with lots of additional content and routes added. The game is up for preorder on JAST USA (download version only) and J-List (Limited Edition package version), and we hope all fans will order the version they want to own.
One note about the Days series: a lot of fans have seen the School Days anime, which is extremely dark, and assume School Days the game is the same. It's not nearly as dark, and only 4-5 of the endings involved death and/or dismemberment. If you avoided playing the School Days game because of the anime, you're really missing out. Shiny Days is similarly a much lighter story that fans of the characters should love, which has a lot of great drama, sex, and interesting relationships criss-crossing back and forth.
The Limited Edition of Shiny Days will include:
As expected, some content will not be included with our shipping version, principally a few specific scenes with Kokoro and her classmate are being omitted. All other game content is included, and all visuals are 100% uncensored and mosaic free. We hope fans will be understanding of the need to not have these scenes in the shipping version, which we have to do both to avoid problems for ourselves and our customers as well as visual novels as a wider genre, which are really beginning to take off in popularity.
While there will not be any kind of official patch to fix these scenes by us, we're confident the Internet will make such a patch for fans who want this content back in the game.
We hope everyone is as excited about Shiny Days as we are. The game is nearly done and should be shipping in June or July.
