It’s a grand time to be an otome game fan with the recent slew of releases we’ve been having this year, and we have more on the way, which is definitely cause for celebration. 🎉 Following the long break after releasing Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds and Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms, our friends at Idea Factory International understood the assignment and has delivered to us the wonderful game that is Cupid Parasite for all of us to partake and enjoy!
What’s Cupid Parasite about? Don’t worry, I’ve got the deets for you:
In the heart of Los York, a glitzy, trendsetting metropolis that sits on the cutting edge of culture and couture, one daring marriage agency stands apart from the rest in success rate and in style. The Cupid Corporation.
As Cupid Corp’s top bridal advisor, our heroine consults the city’s most in-vogue singles to make their wildest romantic dreams come true. But she has one secret which she can never share. Her true identity is Cupid, a descendant from Celestia sent here on a heavenly mission.
INT. SCENE. 5 A.M. Cupid Corp’s president’s personal office:
“Get these five people married. Do that, and the promotion is yours. You’re the Cupid of Cupid Corp, are you not? Our top bridal advisor. I trust this is within your ability?“
Only this time, our heroine has been tasked with her biggest challenge yet: handling the matchmaking, and this the fates, of the infamous Parasite 5. After a series of unimpressive interviews and workshops, they concoct the perfect plan. Parasite House, a shared home created for reality TV centered around the lives of the Parasite 5 and their romantic exploits.
Leading these hopeless men to marital bliss proves to be a Herculean task even for great Cupid herself! Can she live up to her name and keep her identity a secret at the same time?! Find out in the most divinely unpredictable romantic comedy of the millennium! ❤
Can confirm: this game really does bring in the laughs with the outrageous bunch that are the Parasite 5! And sure, the guys looks incredibly handsome, but all the women in the game? My GOD. They’re all gorgeous! 😍 10/10 would kiss! You can find out more of my thoughts on the game by watching what I’ve played so far on my Twitch channel.

The only caveat: US ONLY, PLEASE! 🙏 [GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED. Congratulations to our winner, Shelby K.! Thank you for entering!] Shipping stuff overseas is pricey, and I’m assuming even slower than it’s been due to the pandemic making everything delayed. Good luck!
