Earlier today, publishing label No More Robots (Hypnospace Outlaw, Descenders) and development studio Cheesemaster Games announced that they’re bringing their rural-life RPG Spirittea to Switch sometime in Summer 2022.
As you might be able to tell from the title, tea-drinking plays a major part in the game. In an interview with Nintendo Life, Dan Beckerton, Lead Designer on the game, spoke up about just how tea plays into the overall experience of Spirittea. You can find his full answer below.
The tea aspect of Spirittea comes from the tea you drink from the ancient teapot in your house, which gives you the ability to see into the spirit world for a limited time. This is how you can spot the mischievous spirits around the town.
Spirittea is created when you put regular old tea leaves in an old teapot found in your home
You won’t be spending much time serving tea. Rather, Spirittea is created when you put regular old tea leaves in an old teapot found in your home. But Spirittea isn’t enough to see all of the spirits. You will be able to see two or three of them simply by drinking the tea.
However, spending time leaving offerings at shrines will increase your spirituality level, which allows you to see more spirits. That said, you will still be able to buy and make some teas, and serve them to your bathhouse customers. I think there’s only a handful of teas in the game currently (green and black), but more will most certainly be added by the time of release.
