Kitfox Games has revealed Boyfriend Dungeon: Secret Weapons, a “substantial free update” which will be made available “later this summer.”
This will introduce new weapons, a new dungeon and a mysterious, dateable new villain-weapon – Dr. Holmes the Whip – who has been designed by Unseen Inc. CEO and creative director Ikumi Nakamura.
In this free expansion, you will have the chance to befriend or romance Jonah the Axe and Leah the Hammer – one character having made a “tantalising” cameo in the main game – who can now accompany your adventures around Verona Beach and as a trusty weapon when descending into the new playable dungeon.
“Designing Dr. Holmes was an exciting job for me,” Nakamura explains. “The character was created through conversations with Tanya [Kitfox Captain and Lead Designer] and the team, and several ideas were developed and vetted. It was an honour to be involved in a game with such a diverse worldview as Boyfriend Dungeon. I was able to communicate with Tanya, the director, and understand the concept behind the Boyfriend Dungeon. It is truly an honour to be involved in indie development like this, and it is often exciting and educational to work and talk with the creators. We hope you all enjoy the new downloadable content.”
With the chance to take your weapons on romantic dates, you can woo them as you explore a procedurally-generated dungeon in Boyfriend Dungeon.
Your time spent together will see you uncover their stories to level them up, capturing their hearts in both friendship and love in this “light-hearted, fantastical shack-and-slash filled with adventure.”
The couple that slays together, stays together, with Boyfriend Dungeon presenting the chance to date up to seven weapons from dancing swords to heart-piercing daggers.
Boyfriend Dungeon is now available digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
