I've been playing the Japanese version of this for a while and love it.

It's Hot Springs Story without the hot springs.

Cool, more Kairosoft.
I would also assume that Grand Prix Story won't be too far behind this one, since it's alright out on Android.

Here's hoping Kairosoft implement Game Centre to both this and Hot Springs Story, as they did with Game Dev Story.

Anyway, this game looks just as awesome as their previous two - and has been bought off the AU iTunes store AT LEAST once. Can't wait to play it!

Kairosoft is an insta-buy for me now. After Game Dev Story (the ultimate time sink with tremendous replay value) and Hot Springs Story (say what you will, but I loved it), I have full faith in this company. Even better, there are multiple schools to build and clear? Looks like this is gonna take a while!
