Game description: Dear Boys - Fast Break is the Playstation 2 videogame based on the manga series. The game is a 3-D basketball simulation where the players are shown as they run, dribble and dunk all over the place. Fast Break mixes action elements where the team players are maneuvered directly with interactive elements where dramatic cut-scenes show exciting events during the game.

Over 50 characters from the Dear Boys animation series appear and contribute to the Story Mode where the player tours with his team from Mizuho High School against six competing high school teams from East Honmoku, Tendouji High School and others. A special Gallery mode may be unlocked where action-packed character artwork may be viewed. The game is based off of the engine from NBA Starting Five.

The game features 3 game modes:

  • Story Mode
  • Konami Cup Mode
  • Exhibition Mode
