Spirittea brings wholesome life sim living to Switch later this year

spirittea release date: a character stands in the middle of a bathhouse, populated by spirits in animal form

Today, publisher No More Robots announced a new and beautiful life sim title, called Spirittea. Combining life sim elements like those found in Stardew Valley, with the humble rural life of Studio Ghibli movies like Spirited Away, we’re completely in love with the vibes here already.

The wholesome-looking title features a writer who has escaped to the countryside to find inspiration, only to get transported to another world when they drink from a mystical teapot (this sounds like the perfect week off). So, when is the Spirittea release date? Currently, No More Robots has revealed Spirittea for a vague ‘summer 2022’ release, so you don’t have too long to wait.

While we look forward to learning more about Spirittea, right now we know that gameplay is a mixture of both life simulation and a management game, all combined together. “Every spirit you help will then turn up at your bathhouse, where you can offer them towels, salts, snacks, and a lovely hot soak. Upgrading your bathhouse with new furniture, rooms and baths is key to attracting the most exciting spirits, including elusive Lord Spirits, who take up an entire room each.” We can’t wait to get our hands on this one.

Watch the trailer below to see this cosy life sim in action.
