Today’s Nintendo Indie World presentation revealed that Boyfriend Dungeon is set to come to the Nintendo Switch. Boyfriend Dungeon was originally funded through Kickstarter and is being developed by Kitfox Games.

Boyfriend Dungeon is a dungeon crawler with a tantalizing premise: What if your sword wasn’t just a sword? What if it was a date-able hunk in an urban fantasy city? This clever indie game combines monster hunting and building romantic relationships and is due for a 2020 release.

There are different romance options, who take the form of sentient weapons to help the player, with male, female, and non-binary characters to choose from. Each weapon plays differently, so you’ll have to find something that can clear dungeons and turn into a charming date. There’s also a platonic route with a cat, for those who aren’t into romance.

The Switch version of Boyfriend Dungeon will have some special features in the form of HD rumble, which makes it especially suited to the undocked version of the console.
