Romancelvania will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on March 7, followed by Switch at a later date, publisher 2124 Publishing and developer The Deep End Games announced. The previously announced PlayStation 4 version is no longer planned.
“The world needs more love,” said narrative director Amanda Gardner in a press release. “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.”
