2124 Publishing and developer The Deep End Games announced a release date for Romancelvania, their new dating sim/platforming game.
Romancelvania is launching for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 on March 7th, with a Switch port coming later.
“The world needs more love,” Narrative Director Amanda Gardner said. “And cheese-obsessed werewolves. And spicy, curvaceous pumpkin witches. With Romancelvania, The Deep End committed to realizing the most fleshed out, quirky, and irresistible characters for Drac to fall for or befriend. We’re constantly striving for players to feel invested in both the characters and the world in unexpected ways. You’ll be hard pressed to find a combo of laughs, bloodlust, and tenderness anywhere else.”
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
Play as a lovelorn, brooding Drac who, after a century of moping around post-heartbreak, is thrown into a monster reality-dating show, hosted by the Grim Reaper! Explore Transylvania’s perilous countryside as you slay absurd baddies on your hunt for the most eligible monsters.
Will Drac find “Love at first Bite”, or will he discover “Love Sucks”?”
- FALL IN LOVE WITH A MONSTER: Discover the “human” inside each monster as you romance, befriend or eliminate a cast of 12 fully-voiced supernatural contestants! Take your relationships to the next level progresses your own strength, abilities, and more.
- WATCH YOUR “SHOWMANCE” UNFOLD: It’s not a reality show until there’s some drama! Make-up or break-up – we don’t judge! With a robust story full of dialogue and narrative options, as well as the ability to choose your body type and voice, become the ultimate decision-maker in YOUR story.
- .. TRANSYLVANIA? From the voluptuous Smashmounds, to the back alleys of Booty Bay, and everything in between, discover an unpredictable, interconnected world filled with monsters to recruit, hidden date spots, and outlandish baddies and boss encounters.
- SATISFY YOUR (BLOOD)LUST: As the former glorious Drac, stripped of their old powers, it’s up to you to become your best bloodthirsty self. Vanquish goons with iconic weapons, elementals, bats, and even Medusa’s “Headouken!” on the road to your victorious rampage in this side-scrolling platformer.
