Two Quintessential Quintuplets Visual Novels Receiving English Digital Release

If you’re a fan of The Quintessential Quintuplets franchise, then there’s more stuff coming your way soon! Its first two visual novels — The Quintessential Quintuplets: Memories of a Quintessential Summer (originally titled Gotōbun no Hanayome ~Natsu no Omoide mo Gotōbun~) and The Quintessential Quintuplets: Five Memories Spent With You (originally titled Eiga Gotōbun no Hanayome ~Kimi to Sugoshita Itsutsu no Omoide~) — are both becoming available in the West next week, on May 23.

You can go for the “double pack” release, or you can buy one of the games only. They’re already on both The PlayStation Store and Nintendo Switch eShop. Spike Chunsoft is involved with getting the games released digitally in English.

So far there isn’t word on if other Quintessential Quintuplets games, like Gotōbun no Hanayome: Kanojo to Kawasu Itsutsu no Yakusoku and Gotōbun no Hanayome: Itsutsugo-chan wa Puzzle wo Gotōbun Dekinai, will likewise be released in the West.

Kodansha USA publishes the manga by Negi Haruba in English and gave this description for its plot:

A high school romantic comedy with five times the cute girls! A high school boy must work part-time to help five sisters study so they can graduate, but the only thing these quintuplets have in common is that they all hate studying!

Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: a high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?! At this rate, the sisters won’t graduate, so if he wants to get paid, Futaro must think of a plan to suit each of them… Which feels hopeless when five out of five of them think he’s a loser!
