The game Coffee Talk was released last January. It involves preparing hot coffee and talking to your customers. Baristas looking to open up shop once more should be happy to learn that a follow-up, dubbed Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly, is coming next year.
This visual novel-style game is similar to the original. It involves concocting delicious brews for problem-ridden customers. Visitors can play a variety of mythological characters, including humans, elves and werewolves. You’ll serve returning favorites such as the writer Freya and police officer Jorji, while first-time visitors include Rionna, an aspiring opera singer, as well as the mysterious blue-haired woman shown at the end of the trailer.
Listening to your patron’s personal stories while brewing special drinks that influence their dialogue forms the crux of this laid-back, urban fantasy experience. Episode 2 doesn’t appear radically different from the first game, but fans who enjoy what Coffee Talk offered may be content with simply getting more of it with some new faces and storylines.
Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly launches sometime in 2022 for PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well as Switch.
