Square Enix have finally given Japanese keen to brush up on their English the chance to do so in a suitably bishoujo-rich environment, in an English learning adventure game entitled “Summer Story.”

The title takes the form of an ¥800 iPhone/iPad app for learning English, designed as a bishoujo adventure game and bearing some rather fine artwork.

Players get the chance to converse with four pretty girls – the flower-maniac daughter of an English aristocrat, an Aussie lass wanting to work as a tour conductor, a Japanese English teacher keen to teach proper English to the protagonist, and, of course, an anime-obsessed American blonde.

The English parts are designed by a native speaker involved with NHK’s educational programming and so presumably possess some educational value.
