Fast food restaurant KFC is due to launch a dating simulator that will see players attempt to start an intimate relationship with Colonel Sanders.
The PC game is titled ‘I Love You, Colonel Sanders! A Finger Lickin’ Good Dating Simulator’ and is produced in a Japanese anime-style. The storyline follows a cooking apprentice who is competing to become the founder’s new business associate, as well as his romantic partner.
