There’s also a new confident called Takuto Maruki, a part-time school counselor who is hired after events involving a teacher at the academy.

Other changes include a new area to explore called Kichijoji, new date spots, new songs, a third semester at Shujin Academy, and support for PlayStation 4 Pro.
