A movie star and fashion designer join Parasite House! We’re excited to announce that the official website for the divine romantic comedy otome, Cupid Parasite™, has been updated with the more character profiles in the lead up to the official English language release on November 2nd (North American release date)!
Get to know the cast of one of the most anticipated otome game of the year ahead of the big English language release! Today we’re getting to know TWO of the love interests, Raul Aconite and Ryuki F. Keisaiin!
Case 03: Raul Aconite – The Obsessed Parasite
VA. Taku Yashiro
A world-famous movie star whose boyish good looks and stunning action scenes have led to multiple box office hits.
He recently signed on to star in his first-ever romance film, and joined Cupid Corp at the behest of his agent to finally understand what it means to be in love.
Thanks to a near-death experience in which he was convinced the gods had saved his life, he gained an obsession with studying Greek mythology—never failing to bring up the topic in every conversation.
Due to his obsession, he has trouble finding people with whom he can relate, and has now found himself as part of the Parasite 5.
Case 04: Ryuki F. Keisaiin- The Glamor Parasite
VA. Junya Enoki
A successful fashion designer and member of the Keisaiin fashion family dynasty. His family is responsible for the “KeiSai:In” fashion line, and he launched his own specialty “rYUKI” line of clothing.
His older sister, who successfully found love thanks to Cupid Corp, signed him up without telling him. His desire for marriage is extremely low, while his standard of physical beauty is impossibly high. He seems incapable of recognizing anyone with a lower facial rank, and has had trouble communicating with his various advisors in the past, leading to his inclusion in the Parasite 5.
He also has synesthesia, which means he sometimes associates people with specific colors, and he often replies to them with what is apparently their color-related hexadecimal code. In addition, he always carries a bottle of moisturizing mist with him to protect him from dry skin.
Those are just two of the colorful cast of characters you’ll meet in the Cupid Parasite! Keep an eye out for more exclusive details leading up to the official release–Cupid Parasite launches physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch™ on November 2 in North America and November 5 in Europe!
But, if you’ve got your eye on the big prize, the Limited Edition is now available for preorder at the IFI Online Stores and the European store page! Don’t worry, Canadian fans can also preorder the Limited Edition today through Video Games Plus for $129.99 CAD with FREE Canada shipping!
About Cupid Parasite
Welcome to Cupid Corporation! – Located in the glitzy and trendsetting metropolis of Los York, Cupid Corporation is a daring marriage agency known for its style and success rate.
Our heroine, Lynette Mirror, is Cupid Corporation’s top bridal advisor, whose job is to consult in-vogue singles to make their wildest romantic dreams come true! BUT she has one huge secret up her sleeve—she is none other than Celestia’s Goddess of Love, Cupid!
Sent to the Human Realm on her heavenly mission of “matchmaking”, Lynette meets her biggest challenge yet: the infamous Parasite 5. In order to help these five hopeless men find true love, Lynette and her team concoct the perfect matchmaking plan… REALITY TV.
Will Lynette be able to live up to her name as top bridal advisor and Cupid, or will her dreams get cancelled?
From Boys to Men – Help the Parasite 5 find true love through “practice dates” to prepare them for their future partners. Maybe you’ll find your true love along the way?
Are U That Somebody? – Find your ideal love type through the dating questionnaire! Each Parasite 5 member has a different love type, which means the partner you end up with will depend on the results of the questionnaire. Want to explore the different love types? New Game+ allows players to manually select your character route, and may even unlock more love connections…
First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage – The answers you choose during story choices can increase your Love Level with a character. If a character likes your answer, you’ll experience a Love Surge. You can take the difficulty up a notch by turning off the Love Surge animations in the menu. A specific Love Level is needed to get a route’s true ending!
Go With The Flow – A Flow Chart is available to keep track of story progression. Hop to and from already experienced scenes to revisit your story choices. Use the Flow Chart to re-do routes and/or relive any memorable scenes!
