Back To The Sea: Boku no Natsuyasumi 2 Remade With New Characters, Stories & Enhancements

Boku no Natsuyasumi Portable 2: Nazo Nazo Shimai to Chinbotsusen no Himitsu

I have been following Boku for quite a while and after the great sales of Boku no Natsuyasumi 4: Seitouchi Shounen Tanteidan, Boku to Himitsu no Chizu last summer, it's no surprise that we will have another game this summer. And that comes in the form of Boku no Natsuyasumi Portable 2: Nazo Nazo Shimai to Chinbotsusen no Himitsu (rough translation: My Summer Holiday Portable 2: Riddle Sisters & The Mystery Behind Sunken Ship), a remake with several enhancements of the 2002 game.

The series lets players enjoy summer in Japan as a school boy and always has some kind of warmth feeling to it thanks to the cute character and story. Boku no Natsuyasumi Portable 2 is apparently a complete remake of the same PS2 game with improvements to the gameplays, which now looks closer to Boku no Natsuyasumi 4.
