If you’re into creepy and post-apocalyptic scenarios, where human dating pigeons are the main attraction, you may already be into Hatoful Boyfriend. The PC version is already up and running on Steam, however, Vita and PS4 are welcoming the rather peculiar game on the 21st of July.
The concept of Hatoful Boyfriend is rather simple. You’re transported into a post-apocalyptic world where humans date pigeons. In fact, birds rule the world and the story is centered around a human girl attempting to go through high school as best she can.
Imagine your average high-school love-drama, replace every teenager except the protagonist with pigeons and you’ve gotten the general idea of Hatoful Boyfriend.
Despite its weird concept, Hatoful Boyfriend has been a massive hit with gamers and critics alike. It’s precisely because of this widespread success that the game is now moving to consoles.
Of course, the storyline becomes more complex one you’re through the dating portion. You deal with opponents, stalkers and experience the somewhat dark concept which many found entertaining.
The Play Station 4 and Vita adaptation will include various new options, such as a new romance spinoff with one of the game’s characters (Tohri). Of course, if you’re a PS4 owner and have never heard of the game, you’re going to have a blast discovering the Anime-like game. Original Hatofyl Boyfriend fans, on the other hand, are in for numerous additions.
According to Devolver Digital’s Nigel Lowrie, the game will feature brand new content with a completely different story. Old players can discover a new ending to the story they have come to love, meet new characters and even use doomsday devices in the curious yet addicting post-apocalyptic world.
“Explore questionable stalkers, bitter rivalries and even doomsday devices in this exclusive new Hatoful Boyfriend content.”
A Hatofyl Boyfriend sequel has already been announced and it’s expected to be released later this year.
