For an IP as big as The Quintessential Quintuplets, it is a little surprising to see Spike Chunsoft opt to shadow drop the games in a digital-only release. By release time, they will have had only a week’s worth of prior marketing. Nevertheless, they also did this with their release of Steins;Gate: My Darling’s Embrace back in 2019. This is not the first time that Spike Chunsoft has shadow dropped big titles.

Additionally, some may also find it surprising that Spike Chunsoft is handling the English release given their licensing history. After all, until now, Spike Chunsoft has almost never published non-Science Adventure series titles from MAGES in English. Their one exception to date was YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World. English releases of MAGES’ other titles have been handled by other publishers like PQube.

Spike Chunsoft has not announced if they will be publishing MAGES.’ other Quintessential Quintuplets games. Time will tell, but with Spike Chunsoft moving into publishing MAGES’ other works, perhaps they might handle the localization of Iwakura Aria.

The Quintessential Quintuplets is originally a manga series by Haruba Negi, published from 2017 to 2020. It has received numerous anime and video game adaptations. Most recently, for the anime’s 5th anniversary, they announced a new anime project in the works. It will take place after the events of the manga’s conclusion with an original story by Haruba Negi.

One may expect MAGES. to continue their past trend of making more games for the series to coincide with the release of major anime projects. They had released their first game (Memories of a Quintessential Summer) at the end of the anime’s second season, the second game (Five Memories Spent with You) alongside The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie, and the third game (Five Promises Made with Her) alongside the airing of The Quintessential Quintuplets~ 2-episode TV special. MAGES has also made the puzzle game, Gotopazu Story, and they recently announced a sequel titled Gotopazu Story 2nd, to release this year.
