LOS ANGELES, MAY 11th, 2022 - Ready for a summer full of boba tea, flirting, and major feelings — Team OFK announced today during the latest Nintendo Indie World showcase that We Are OFK, their music biopic game about the indie pop band OFK, will be releasing on Nintendo Switch this Summer alongside the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC versions. 

“Fuck yea more gay content on all game platforms!” commented OFK pianist Itsumi Saito.

“I cannot comment on whether we’ll be added to Smash Bros,” added lead singer Luca Le Fae. “I can’t say that. You can say that. Is it true? I can’t say that. But I’d be surprised if we got into Smash before like Demi Lovato or Lil Nas X because they deserve it… We’re all super honored that our biopic is coming to Switch!!!”

To celebrate the Nintendo announcement, Team OFK revealed the series’ glittering title sequence animation, created with Los Angeles studio Six Point Harness (dir. Emily Gerich).

All five episodes of We Are OFK will be released weekly, accompanied by the release of new OFK singles with each new episode. Episode one and two will be released together at first.
