After its initial presentation at this year’s E3 event, Chinese publisher FriendTimes will once again showcase its two new upcoming titles, Yokai Kitchen and Fate of Empress. at gamescom 2019.
Set in a fancy restaurant full of whimsical characters, Yokai Kitchen is an upbeat anime RPG where perfecting your cuisine will require a little magic as well as skill. Your job will be to run the restaurant and make deslishes and unique dishes with the aid of your Foodimon – special little critters that have the knowledge and skills to produce delicious ingredients.
Maintaining a successful restaurant will take more than skills in the kitchen though – you’ll also have to battle rivals, solve puzzles, and capture plenty of foodimon to keep discovering more delicious recipes.
Fate of the Empress swaps the kitchen high-jinx for tales of love and drama set in ancient China. Boasting stunning 3D graphics and beautiful animated cut-scenes, this RPG tasks you to find your way to be a queen/a king, whilst mingling with the social elite in extravagant imperial-era surroundings.
Fate of the Empress focuses on high-drama rather than the art of war, so its definitely one to consider if you’re after a little romance as a change of pace from the standard action-based RPG fare.
So if you happen to be attending gamescom 2019 and would like to find out more then be sure to stop by Booth A-041 in Hall 10.1. In case you won’t be there then fear not, you can follow both games on their official social media channels for more updates:
