An English release was scheduled for December 25, 2008, and the game was available for a brief time on that date, but the title was pulled until January 20, 2009. Da Capo began as a series of prelude short scenarios in the Suika fandisc Archimedes no Wasuremono, and since the initial release, there have been numerous different versions released for the PC and PlayStation 2 over the years with updated scenarios and characters. The game-play in Da Capo follows a plot line which offers predetermined scenarios with courses of interaction, and focuses on the appeal of the seven female main characters.
It centers around the period before Jun'ichi Asakura graduates from the affiliated section of Kazami Academy (Kazami Gakuen) where his cousin Sakura Yoshino returns to after moving to America years ago. Most of the main stories revolve around a magical sakura tree.
