Check Out All the Bishonen in the Sympathy Kiss Trailer

The romance game Sympathy Kiss is being released sometime early next year in North America and Europe thanks to Idea Factory International, and ahead of this the opening movie trailer has been revealed. It’s about two minutes long and lets us take a look at all the bishonen.

People will be able to play it on the Nintendo Switch either digitally or physically. It was previously released by Otomate in late 2022.

Here is the description given for the game:

About a year has passed since Akari Amasawa started her new job as a designer at Estario, a mobile app maker. While she doesn’t dislike her job, she’s not deeply passionate about it either. After her yearly performance review, she’s given the opportunity to join the Estarci team.

The company’s namesake app, Estarci is a news app that made a big splash when it launched, but has since fallen behind rival apps, including apps run by Estario itself. Management has decided to give the app one last chance before shutting it down for good, and Akari and all of her new co-workers will need to give it their all to save the app from the chopping block.

Will Akari find true love? Will she find what it is she wants to do in life? Will the app get shut down? Wait, was Akari only given this opportunity because the company was looking for an excuse to fire her?!

Business and pleasure mix in Sympathy Kiss, a thrilling office romance and slice-of-life drama!

The voice cast has also been released. Gakuto Kajiwara plays Mitsuki Saotome, Yuichiro Umehara plays Kohei Minato, Kazuyuki Okitsu plays Yoji Kobase, Seiichirō Yamashita plays Rokuro Yoshioka, KENN plays Nori Tainaka, and Yūya Uchida plays Shuya Usui.

So far a more specific release date has not yet been revealed.
