Following the latest English trailer for the Otome visual novel Lover Pretend showing a December 2022 release window, the game’s official website was also updated, revealing a specific December 1, 2022 launch.
Publisher Aksys Games has not yet commented on this information, but considering how this is the official website, it’s likely accurate. Additionally, the Online Exclusive Edition, including a physical soundtrack, is available for pre-order for $59.99. The game’s Standard physical release is also available for pre-order via Amazon and the Aksys digital storefront for $49.99.
Thanks to Twitter user @orchidork08 for spotting this information.
We’ll update this article if Aksys provides an official comment.
Lover Pretend tells the story of a college student called Chiyuki who dreams of becoming a scriptwriter like her mother, who sadly passed away. However, because she has no romantic experience, she has difficulty coming up with stories revolving around the subject, which seems to be one of her weak points as a writer.
She’s also looking for some clues on her father’s identity, as she has never met him, and now she isn’t able to ask her mother about him anymore. Then, shockingly, she finds out her father may have been involved in the performance of an old drama her mother wrote. Weirdly enough, the sons of the former staff are currently making a movie. This is the perfect opportunity for her to discover the truth as an assistant.
Chiyuki lands the job, but the staff decides to have her act as the love interest in the movie. This is but the start of some chaotic rom-com romps while she tries to get closer to her two objectives. As an otome title, she’ll likely find true romance along the way.
Lover Pretend is releasing for Nintendo Switch in December 2022.
