If you've ever looked at a typical dungeon crawler and thought, yes, what this needs is the ability to become romantically involved with personifications of the weapons you wield, that very specific desire has now been catered for. Boyfriend Dungeon has "surprise" launched on PS5 today, 14th February 2023.
It's not exactly a surprise; the port was rated in Taiwan recently, which is always an indicator of a game's impending release. Now, developer Kitfox has confirmed the news, and the game itself is available right now for £15.99/$19.99.
You can get a feel for what this unusual game offers in the above trailer. It's more or less split between your regular isometric hack-and-slash fare and visual novel, in which your weaponry transforms into a varied cast of people with whom you can build relationships. It certainly seems unique, and it's an apt game to check out on Valentine's Day.

Dungeon crawlers aren’t really my thing, but that transformation animation was fantastic!
Quite fancy this one, looks like silly fun.
I’ll be waiting for the spin-off: Girlfriend Dungeon… which doesn’t quite sound right whoops
Neat idea, for the fun of it.
But sometimes it seems small developers click on a random phrase generator, decide their game based on the outcome and call it a day.
To the detriment of the gameplay.
Also, i’m a little perplexed by a game called Boyfriend Dungeon which advertises itself as a dating sim where one of the weapons is a child.
I’m sure they avoided any unnecessary controversy.
I'm a bit confused since the game is called Boyfriend Dungeon but I see two girls there. Unless they also identify as male? Probably shouldn't assume, I guess.
@ATaco I gave feedback to the dev team over a year ago that the title is confusing when the game is more inclusive and not just about “boyfriends.” They scoffed at the feedback and I moved on.
It’s up to them to market their game successfully. I still don’t think the name does a very good job representing the scope, but I won’t be playing it because I wasn’t fond of the interaction with their team.
Played and beat a year ago on my Series X. Not interested in games that have been out for a year already.
@bimboliquido none of them are children
@EchoRange 0:49, Sawyer, Glaive.
Are you saying that is not a minor?
Played it on switch a while ago. Not bad, but veeeery short and without a lot of replayability, which is a shame for a dungeon crawler. Not a lot of "dungeons" and all very short.
Title IS confusing as you have, if I remember right, at least two females and one (or two ?) non-binary character you can date.
@bimboliquido Sawyer is 20
@EchoRange you cannot possibly be that naive.
This is the same as japanese developers when they make a a character that looks like a 12 yo girl but is actually a 1000 yo dragon or whatever.
It doesn’t really change the fact that it looks like a child, and if you are into wooing that don’t mind the sirens in the distance.
@bimboliquido not a Sawyer fan
@bimboliquido Some people look young, but comparing Sawyer to that loli garbage is a bit extreme.
