The Quintessential Quintuplets – Memories of a Quintessential Summer from Spike Chunsoft and MAGES is a charming visual novel based on the manga series. The Quintessential Quintuplets manga got started back in 2017, and it was followed by an anime series in 2019, a second series in 2021, an anime film in 2022, and a third anime series in 2023. There’s another video game based on the 2022 anime film. We’ll be working on a review for that game – known as The Quintessential Quintuplets – Five Memories Spent With You – so be sure to stick around at PS4blog.net!

For this journey, you’ll be taking on the role of Futaro Uesegi. You’ve been invited, alongside your younger sister Raiha, to the titular quintuplets private island. You were supposed to jump in for a three-day, two-night visit and chill. Unfortunately, a sudden storm hits the island, and you’re left there, trying to survive for a couple of weeks! You’ll be interacting with the Nakano sisters – Ichika, Nono, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki, as you try to make the most of your current situation.

Why were Futaro and Raiha been invited on this trip in the first place? Because Futaro acts as the quintuplet’s tutor – part-time tutor, to be precise. That means he’s worked on helping them go from almost failing due to her terrible grades and lack of interest in school to hopefully managing to graduate. This trip to the quintuplets’ private island takes place during the summer vacation after a school trip since the girls have now created a bond with Futaro after all his help.


As is usually the case for visual novels from Spike Chunsoft, the game is fully voice-acted, which is always appreciated. And yes, the original voice actors lend their voices for this particular release! Do know that the performances are in Japanese, so if you’re unfamiliar with the language, there will be a lot of reading in your future! We’re also getting some new illustrations that have been created specifically for this game, which is certainly a nice touch.

The game is split into two different segments: Scheduling and Dating Sim. Scheduling requires that you keep an eye out for each girl’s stats since you need to help them succeed in an exam they’re taking. You are, after all, their part-time tutor! Scheduling is also a must since the quintuplets must study, work on food gathering (remember the storm?), have some free time, and rest. All work and no play will make them grumpy, and their stats will then take a big hit and plummet! If a quintuplet collapses from exhaustion, her academic ability will be greatly reduced.

Schedule Scenes and Cooking Scenes will follow one another and take place three times a day – morning, noon, and evening – before your day ends. All quintuplets must score at least 60 on the test, or it’s game over for you! The success of studying and food gathering will depend on the parameters for each girl. Free time will improve a girl’s mood. Selecting rest for someone’s schedule will help that girl take a break to recover some of her HP.


Each of the quintuplets will have a subject they’re strong at. Ichika will do better with math. Nino does better with English. Yotsuba does better with Japanese. Itsuki does better with science. Miku does better with social. As for cooking, a quintuplet will join Raiha to cook some food for the group. After selecting the dish, a quintuplet’s cooking parameters will determine the outcome. Each quintuplet can only be on cooking duty once a day. Do know that Nino can’t fail cooking, so be sure to make the most of this handy tip!
