Negi Haruba's The Quintessential Quintuplets is getting another video game adaptation for Nintendo Switch™ and PlayStation®4 which will be released in Japan on June 2, 2022.
This new game is titled 「映画『五等分の花嫁』～君と過ごした五つの思い出～」(Literal English: The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie: Five Memories Spent With You) as it gives players a chance to confess to each of the Nakano siblings.
The game branches off from the story of the sequel film coming this Summer 2022, with the cast spending their graduation trip in Okinawa. In the game, the player stars as main character Futaro Uesugi who can choose multiple endings and confess to each of the Nakano siblings.
The game is available in three versions, a downloadable version (JPY 7,700), a regular edition (JPY 8,580) and a limited edition (JPY 11,800). The limited edition comes with a box with an original illustration plus a set of five drama CDs with a 30-minute audio drama for each of the Nakano siblings.
Further updates on the game will be posted regularly on the official Twitter account below.
The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese: 五等分の花嫁, Romaji: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shōnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards.
The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series.
The TV anime adaptation consists of two seasons (2019, 2021), plus an upcoming film in Summer 2022.
