Bird Romance Visual Novel Hatoful Boyfriend is Coming September 4th

Hato Moa put out a bird themed dating simulator, and Devolver Digital has been readying the upcoming remake for Steam – however they missed their deadline of August 21st.

Instead, the avian romance simulator is going to be arriving on September 4th, with co-developer Mediatonic saying the game needs more polish “before it hatches”, just like that thumbnail says.

In Hatoful Boyfriend, you step into the shoes of the only human to be accepted into St. PigeoNation’s Institute, and for those unwashed heathens it’s basically a high school for intelligent birds. You’re tasked with going to class and flirting with your avian colleagues, and Hato Moa added an entirely new scenario with the “Azami special ending”, just for this remake.

You can pre-order Hatoful Boyfriend on Steam at the discounted price of $8.99, which is down from its regular price of $9.99 dollars. You can even get the Collector’s Edition at $13.49, which comes with the game, the soundtrack, an exclusive comic from Hato Moa, exclusive wallpapers of Oko-san, and finally – a coveted St. Pigoenations Schoolbook.

    While the game may look silly to a lot of people, there really is much more to it. There is the simple start of being the unusual kind of otome game, but there are a lot of interesting things to take in from just that and even more when you go deeper within.

    I’m usually pretty open minded when it comes to games, however this game is something else. Good thing I don’t fit the demographic, there’s a game for everybody in the world. So I’m sure this game will appeal to somebody else.
