Whet your appetite with a new trailer
We first learned about Onsen Master back in the middle of June, which is when the dev team said the game would land on Switch in Summer 2022. Looks like they weren’t kidding, as Onsen Master is now locked in for Sept. 1st, 2022 release. A new trailer was shared to celebrate the release date, which you can see above.
Onsen Master features arcade-style single and two-player co-op, where players must manage the customers of their hot springs, and prepare and put together the correct ingredients to cure their ailments. Running around the hot springs, wrangling wandering customers, and putting the right concoctions into the right baths can be hectic enough already, but troublesome yokai look to impede players’ excellent service as well.
A dark cloud hangs over the island of Izajima, its effects weighing heavily on the inhabitants. Mischievous spirits called yokai are running amok within the island’s hot springs. And the great Onsen Master, keeper of the hot springs and healer of ailments, has mysteriously vanished. Players will take on the role of his apprentice, Mu, in order to restore balance and uncover what happened to the Onsen Master!
