Dating simulator as an April Fool's joke: Pals long for your love

What do we see in the trailer? The trailer takes you to an anime-style school and there's plenty of romance and drama waiting for you. In the trailer we see Katress being introduced with the student ID 75 and the quote: You won't be able to take your eyes off me. She is portrayed as sweet and mysterious, but on the other hand, she is also a Yandere personality who doesn't tolerate you dating others.

On the other hand, Chillet is shown as a sweet, shy character while Lovander appears as a seductive senpai and pops the question: How about we have a little fun? The shady black market dealer is also there.

But although the trailer creates real anticipation, one thing is clear: It's an April Fool's joke from Pocket Pair. The studio made it clear that this was a joke by adding an April Fool's Day hashtag to the trailer.

There is even one in the YouTube description text Rule 34 Version indicated, below An 18+ version will also be released and Pals take off their clothes?!

How does the community react? Players are apparently really excited about a dating simulator from Palworld. We have summarized a few comments for you under the YouTube video:

  • Veltavelotissia writes: The black market dealer surprised me.
  • GeometricalNeko writes: The fact that Katress is a Yandere personality makes me happy.
  • Karsteski says what some are thinking: There has to be.

Who knows, maybe this joke will actually turn into something serious, similar to The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog.

But April Fool's Day leaves Palworld fans excited. After all, Pocketpair notes in the video description that an update for Palworld is coming soon!. Until then, players can enjoy the trailer and look forward to more news from the world of Pals.
