Remember when we thought this would never happen? Shin chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation – The Endless Seven-Day Journey was announced for a Western release back in June, and now, publisher Neos has revealed that the game will be launching as soon as next week!

Gematsu reports (via GoNintendo) that on 11th August, we'll be able to join popular Japanese character Shin-Chan on his summer vacation on Switch. The game is already out in Japan on the console, but it's coming out worldwide on other platforms alongside the English Switch (and PS4 and Steam) version.

Curious about this title, which is created by the same people who made Attack of the Friday Monsters!, then you should check out this story summary from the game's website:

Hiroshi has to go on a business trip to Kyushu, so now the entire Nohara family has decided to stay with an childhood friend of Misae's in Asso, Kumamoto.

But when they arrive at Kumamoto Station on their way to Asso, they meet a strange man who offers them an even stranger camera on the condition that they'll act as his witnesses...

With his new camera in hand, Shinnosuke can enjoy his summer vacation in the beautiful Asso fields and mountains to the fullest. The scenery is even crawling with creatures that he would never find in Kasukabe. And there are townspeople to help and new friends to make.

That said...don't these kids look an awful lot like the ones he knows from home?

One cool summer night, Shinnosuke witnesses a giant creature outlined against the light of a full moon. Next to the creature is a strange man with a wide smile.

It's the same weird man who gave him the camera at the station...

And he calls himself the Professor Akuno. Following this encounter more and more strange things start to happen around Asso...

This lovely little life sim lets you do a number of things, such as keep a picture diary, take a bath with your dad, become a news reporter, grow vegetables, and even become a DJ! Sounds like a ideal slate of summer activities to us.

You'll be able to grab the lovely-looking Shin chan: Me and the Professor on Summer Vacation – The Endless Seven-Day Journey for $39.99 on Switch next week, 11th August. That's exactly one week away!
