Charming, Studio Ghibli-esque magical life sim Kitori Academywhich I covered quite some time ago when it was known by another name – is currently seeking funds via Kickstarter.

The work of two-person studio Cubenary, Kitori Academy is a magic-themed take on life sims such as Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley, with charming visuals and engaging mechanics. The player is cast in the role of a wizard apprentice – and they’ll spend their time completing quests, casting spells, mixing potions, relaxing with their cat spirit companion and even tending to their very own garden. Players can attend magic lessons and learn about lots of different subjects, as well as meet unique characters as they explore the academy and uncover its secrets.

The feline spirit companion can be personalised to make it entirely unique – and they can be interacted with too, via petting, treats and even mini games!

There’s an undeniable charm to the beautifully colourful visuals and the general look and feel of the whimsical creatures in the game; Kitori Academy is currently estimated for launch in Autumn 2023 on Steam – with PlayStation, Xbox and Switch versions to follow.

You can check out and back the title on Kickstarter here. A good selection of rewards – including some that will remain Kickstarter exclusive – are there to tempt you into backing; there are limited tiers too, so check it out as soon as you can if Kitori Academy sounds like it’s up your Diagon Alley!

Kitori Academy’s Kickstarter page can be found here.
