Looking for a new visual novel to sink your teeth into? You'll want to give Arcade Spirits a try, especially as it's making the leap from PC to consoles this May.

Fiction Factory Games' Arcade Spirits is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch, and that means you'll get to spend some time checking out a world where a group of arcade employees find love.

Design your own character from your hairstyle to your outfit and role-play to become your own fun part of the arcade crew, all the while growing relationships ranging from platonic to romantic. There are seven romanceable characters, in fact, and you'll be able to track your status with each by using the Identity Identifier System (IRIS) as well as your various personality traits like Quirky, Steady, and Kindly as well as Gutsy and Basically.

There's a myriad of different ways to customize your character to your liking, and plenty of different paths to take as you experience the storyline. Arcade Spirits is already available on PC, but you can check it out when it lands on the additional platforms on May 1.

If you're looking for something a little different, you can't go wrong with this colorful (and inventive) visual novel. Plus, who hasn't fantasized about working in an arcade, after all?
