The Hatoful Boyfriend spin-off has a release date. Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star, which can best be described as a fan-disc of loosely related, spin-off stories staring Hiyoko, the hunter-gatherer human, and her feathered boyfriends, will be released on the PlayStation Store and Steam before December 25.
Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star will come to PCs first, for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It has a December 15 release date on Steam. A week later, on December 22, it will come to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
The events of Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star pretty much disregard most of the endings of Hatoful Boyfriend, especially the Hurtful Boyfriend route.Instead, it contains four main and six short stories starring the cast. Most involve Hiyoko experiencing Christmas adventures with characters like Ryouta, Nageki, Sakuya, Yuuya, and Shu.
It’s also important to note that Hatoful Boyfriend: Holiday Star is a kinetic visual novel. This means there are no choices. The original game allowed player to influence the plot with their decisions.
