The key art for Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling.

Mere days ago, I was whining about how a new trailer for Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling didn’t quite make up for the lack of a known release date. Someone somewhere must have heard my cries, because today Idea Factory International announced the game’s release date. It also dropped a Fan Disc trailer that traces the throughline between the best endings of Cupid Parasite and Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling.

The first game in the series, Cupid Parasite, follows a top bridal advisor named Lynette at Cupid Corporation in glitzy Los York. Lynette also happens to be Cupid herself, desperate to get a promotion. To do so, she has to handle the matchmaking of the Parasite 5 – who just so happen to be infamous for being hopeless in the romance department. She creates a reality television series centred around them, but it’s still a difficult task. Along the way, she may fall in love herself.

Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling has three modes. After Drama is a follow-up, picking up where you left off in the last game. New Parasite brings players to Merenice Levin’s perspective of the events that take place after Cupid Parasite’s common route. Bonus Episode contains six bonus episodes with unlockable CGs.

In After Drama, Cupid is experiencing love firsthand. She becomes a goddess, but “only” for him. Marriage wasn’t necessarily the goal, but it was the start of a new chapter. Every step along the way, they found unexpected challenges… so don’t expect it to stop now! A mysterious creature has appeared in the city; is it divine intervention or evidence of an unknown civilisation?

In Merenice’s route, her days of being Cupid aren’t over yet! She’s about to find herself at the centre of a romantic and comedic story set in the world of matchmaking.

Here is the Fan Disc Trailer:

There are three special physical editions of the Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling. The Limited Edition includes the game, a hardcover art book, an audio drama set, a postcard set with display booklet, a steel game case, a reversible cover sleeve, a collector’s box, and an exclusive trading card. The Day One Edition includes the game, a reversible cover sleeve, an arrow pin, an acrylic standee, a double-sided poster, a collector’s box, and an exclusive trading card. The Day One Edition Dual Pack includes everything from the Day One Edition, plus the original Cupid Parasite game for Nintendo Switch and its Day One Edition contents: a reversible cover sleeve, a double-sided poster, a set of six character cards, a sticker sheet, and a collector’s box.

Developed by Idea Factory and published by Idea Factory International, Cupid Parasite: Sweet and Spicy Darling will be released digitally and physically for Nintendo Switch on May 28.

She has has developed a great love of life sims and FMV titles. For her, accessibility is one of the most important parts of any game (but she also really appreciates good UI).
