Ever since this heckin' pandemic rolled into town, it's been very difficult to get a lot of things done. Sticking out your tongue at people in supermarkets is hard to do with a mask on. Licking objects is frowned upon a little more than usual. And kissing? Kissing is probably the worst thing you can do when there's a deadly disease hanging around.
Thank heavens we have video games like Cupid Parasite, where you can kiss to your heart's content without risking anyone's health and safety! The romantic comedy otome — that means it's a dating game, usually targeted towards women — is out now in North America, with a November 5th release date for Europe.
The game is about Lynette, a matchmaker who's secretly Cupid, who gets embroiled in her very own romance as she tries to set up other people. There are five "hopeless" men to choose from, who are apparently her biggest challenge, because they're all very bad at love.
There's also a Limited Edition, which costs £82.00 / $94.99 and comes with a steel case, an art book, keychains, a soundtrack, and a trading card; a physical "Day One" edition, which costs £54.98 and includes 6 trading cards, stickers, and a poster; and a Standard Edition for $49.99, which is just the physical game plus a trading card.
There will be a patch available "within approximately 4 weeks" to fix dialogue, grammar, and text overflow issues.
