Publisher Chorus Worldwide and developer Toge Productions announced Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly last November, which is now available for pre-order on PC and consoles.

Coffee Talk Episode 2 will also be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one, allowing subscribers to enjoy the game on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S at no extra cost.

Toge Productions released the original Coffee Talk in January 2020. Described by the developers as a “coffee brewing and heart-to-heart conversation simulator”, players take on the role of a barista in an alternate universe version of Seattle, Washington, where humans live alongside fantasy creatures such as elves, orcs, and chimeras. Featuring relaxing lo-fi music and beautiful pixel art, players mix drinks while learning about the variety of colourful characters that come and go from the café.

The upcoming Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus and the Butterfly continues the story, offering players new and returning characters as they continue to explore the unique urban fantasy setting, one conversation at a time. Coffee Talk 2 players will mix a variety of delicious coffee drinks, experiment with ingredients and create new recipes to warm the bodies and hearts of customers. Meanwhile, Coffee Talk Episode 2’s fluid simulation allows players to showcase their creativity by decorating their drinks in a variety of ways.

The original Coffe Talk received an overwhelmingly positive response when it was released three years ago, with a 95% rating on Steam. While the coffee making and talk simulation game clearly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, gamers looking for a more relaxed experience may want to consider trying out the new game on Xbox Game Pass, or buying it on PC via the Epic Games Store, Steam and GOG, or for Switch, PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
