Coffee Talk Episode 2 will release on April 20

On Tuesday, developer Toge Productions and publisher Chorus Worldwide announced that Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus and Butterfly will release on PC and consoles on April 20. The game was originally supposed to release in 2022, but was delayed. Serenity Forge is also putting out a physical collector’s edition of the game during the autumn of this year.

In Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus and Butterfly, players take on managing a coffee shop in Seattle, Washington that serves both human and supernatural guests. Behind the bar, you will make all kinds of different drinks while you listen to your patrons talk about their lives. You can customize these drinks to each customers’ tastes with ingredients like chocolate and ginger, and you can also create latte art on each beverage. Listening to your customers will open up different narrative arcs that you’ll follow throughout the game.

Coffee Talk Episode 2 means a lot to us,” said Shintaro Kanaoya, founder and CEO of Chorus Worldwide. “After seeing Coffee Talk’s world and characters for ourselves, we knew we wanted to contribute to that universe. We’re ecstatic to be working with Toge on this heartfelt story and getting it in front of anyone who enjoys wholesome narratives this April.”

Another exciting announcement is that Serenity Forge, the publisher behind Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! and Chorus Worldwide (Dungeon Munchies) will be bringing physical editions of Coffee Talk and Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus and Butterfly to retail stores in Fall 2023. These physical and collectors editions will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. The prices will range from $39.99 to $149.99. The standard $39.99 edition of the original Coffee Talk will include a physical copy of the game, a wooden Freya charm, a sheet of nine character stickers, and a coffee cup-theme soundtrack download card. The standard $39.99 edition of the sequel will include a physical copy of the game, a wooden Riona charm, a sheet of 11 character stickers, and a coffee cup-theme soundtrack download card. There’s also a $99.99 collector’s edition of the original game, and a $149.99 collector’s edition of both games.
