Shameless review natsuiro high school seishun hakusho
The player is a high school boy on the fictional island of Yumegashima (夢ヶ島), Japan. They will find people on the island that will give the player quests, mostly to take pictures of schoolgirls' panties for a journalism club. If the player is caught doing so, they will either be reported to the police and taken into custody or be taken into the school counselor's office (if the player is caught taking pictures inside the school).
The game was announced in November 20, 2014's Weekly Famitsu. About a week later, D3 Publisher released details about the game's main outline and four of its heroines. In the December 4, 2014's Weekly Famitsu they revealed three new female characters. On December 10, 2014, D3 Publisher uploaded the first trailer of Natsuiro High School on their official YouTube channel, revealing the game's theme song, "Natsuiro Butterfly" (夏色バタフライ☆) by Megu & Tamaki. In February 2015, the game's release date, thirteen new characters and their voice actors were revealed. An eight-minute trailer was released on May 15, 2015. The game was inspired by action role-playing open world game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The games's producer is Nobuyuki Okajima.
The game's opening theme is "Natsuiro Butterfly" (夏色バタフライ☆, literally "Summertime Butterfly"), while its ending theme is "Kioku no Naka no Regret" (記憶の中のリグレット, literally "The Memories of Regret"), both by Megu & Tamaki.
