Visual Novel Arcade Spirits is Coming to Consoles Next Year

Don’t you just love love?

Whether it be in real life or in a video game, the act of being in love is a truly wonderful experience. Well, not if things spiral down the toilet, but we’ll ignore that detail for now. Arcade Spirits from developer Fiction Factory Games released on PC earlier this year, but now it’s headed to consoles.

Set in a future where the 1983 video game crash never occurred and arcades are still hugely popular, you start a job at the most popular arcade in town and try to find love.


Arcade Spirits is all about making important choices that lead you towards a great romance. Say the wrong thing and you might drive your crush away. Flirt well and you may end up having a little quiet time with that same crush. It’s all up to you. You get to choose who you want to be, who you want to try and romance and figure out what this love stuff is all about.

There isn’t an exact date for Arcade Spirits‘ release, but look out for the game coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One – yes, a visual novel on Xbox One! – in early 2020.

Can’t wait to pick it up? You can also grab the game right now on Steam.
