After announcing it almost a year ago, fan-translation collective HilltopWorks have released their full English translation patch for Boku no Natsuyasumi 2, the 2002 entry of the long-running cozy game franchise that originally launched on the PlayStation 2.
The Boku no Natsuyasumi (“My Summer Vacation”) titles follow a young boy being sent to live with his aunt and uncle in rural Japan over summer break and all of the low-stakes situations he might find himself in over his relaxing trip. They’ve been widely acclaimed in Japan for accurately capturing the feeling of childhood adventure and positive nostalgia, but the series has, with the sole exception of a Crayon Shin-chan spin-off title, never been officially released worldwide.
Boku no Natsuyasumi 2, as with the rest of the games in the series, requires no knowledge of the other titles to enjoy, as the biggest difference between it and the first game is simply that it’s set in a different small Japanese town, this one is on the coast. It was originally released on July 11, 2002, and received a 33/40 from Famitsu, selling over a quarter of a million copies in under twenty days.
You can watch the trailer for the release of the patch below and download it from HilltopWorks’ Patreon for free here.
