People will soon get a game involving a bathhouse situation similar to the one in Spirited Away, as Spirittea is on the way. This is a life sim in which players create an avatar and head to a small town. Once there, they’ll tend a bathhouse and aid the spirits who visit it. It will appear on PCs and unspecified consoles. While there’s no exact release date yet, it will appear sometime in Summer 2022. A closed beta is also on the way. Sign-ups for it are open.

Here’s the first trailer for the game. It features the player moving to town and heading to its empty bathhouse. After drinking some tea, they can see a cat spirit. This leads to them finding a new calling. That is, running the Spirited Away-style bathhouse.

The video also shows some of the activities people will need to tend to in the life sim. The bathhouse is near a normal human town. This means folks to befriend and get to know. For example, Fae the carpenter appears in the footage. The segment also shows a player cleaning items, using wood to heat baths, supplying spirits, putting them in baths, creating food, and playing a rhythm game. People will also be able to fish, complete tasks to restore spirits’ memories, and upgrade their venue. There are also peeks at the massive Lord Spirits, who only appear after you’ve put a lot of effort into your bathhouse, as well as more typical spirit visitors.

Spirittea will come to PCs and unspecified consoles in Summer 2022. Its Steam page is live.
