Since its inception in 1930, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has gone on to become one of the greatest fried chicken franchise worldwide, with over 22,000 outlets in 136 countries.
To have survived that long, KFC must have grown and adapted with the times, and in this modern age where almost everything is on the internet, KFC has one new trick up its sleeve, a video game. Oh, but it isn’t just any old video game, it’s a Colonel Sanders dating simulator.
First announced via a very anime-esque trailer, I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator is filled with a rather sizeable cast, including adorable corgi chef and the very handsome Colonel Sanders. Many have questioned the legitimacy of the game but let us tell you right now, the game is as real as a bucket of KFC chicken wings, and it will be releasing for free later this month.
“KFC’s soon-to-be-released and free dating simulator game follows your journey as a promising young student through University of Cooking School: Academy for Learning as you navigate relationships, social challenges that the fast-paced life in the kitchen can bring,” reads the official press release from KFC.
Throughout the game, players will have to make various life-changing choices that can affect their chances at friendship, or even love, with the various casts in the game. The game will have nine romanceable routes, and even has a secret ending and hints to help you discover the secret recipe.
KFC seems to be on a quest to convince its customers that the Colonel is an incredibly sexy, eligible bachelor as just two years ago, they released a 96-page romance novel titled Tender Wings of Desire, it was supposedly written by the Colonel himself. Its Amazon page seems to have been taken down but the Twitter post announcing it is still available.
You can check the game out on its official Steam page before its release on September 24, 2019.
