More Than Just a Retro Romance - Balance social life with the intensity of running an esports team in a retrofuturistic world where arcades dominate the gaming scene. After the success of the award-winning visual novel Arcade Spirits, Fiction Factory Games are back with a ground-breaking standalone sequel.

Customizable Characters - Design your own character and rival using a massively expanded character creator.

Alter your character and change your pronouns after every chapter to see what reflects you best!

9 Romance Paths & Multiple Endings - Choose how your story plays out while interacting with a diverse group of lovable individuals. Build your own championship legend and let your relationships blossom into beautiful friendships... or perhaps more?

Become an Esports Champion – On top of the gripping and often heart-warming tale, The New Challengers throws a sense of classic arcade competitiveness into the mix. Take on the world in Fist of Discomfort 2, a tactical fighter interwoven within the narrative.

Amazing Voice Cast – Enjoy an incredibly unique visual novel with a distinctive art style, and cast of colorful characters bursting with style and personality.
