  • Release date: August 17th 2022 (North America, Europe) / August 18th 2022 (Japan)
  • Patch notes:
  • Midway through the nightclub dungeon (“La Rosa”), you will receive a text message. Responding to this message can lead you to new characters, weapons, a dungeon, dates, recipes, and more.
  • To experience this content in an old save file, visit any dungeon or date, and then return to the apartment. You should receive the text message above, from someone named ‘S’.
  • While exploring Verona Beach (the map “hub” screen), you may find 15 new “encounters” between weapons you’ve befriended.
  • After receiving a birthday gift from a weapon, you will now see the gift appear in your apartment.
  • Seven new achievements related to the new content have been added.
  • This new content is equally compatible with old save files, or with newly started games.
  • When you die in the dungeon, your weapon will now comment, including voice acting.
  • When you start a dungeon run, your weapon’s comment voice acting audio will now follow you, as intended.
  • All of Isaac/Estoc’s comments when starting a new dungeon run now have voice acting.
  • Various typos and mistakes were fixed in the date text.
  • To account for the new content, the latter half of the nightclub dungeon (“La Rosa”) may have changed slightly.
  • The game’s credits now include any new staff members and/or updated titles.
  • Old “collect them all” achievement requirements have been updated to reflect the new content.

Boyfriend Dungeon – Ver. ???

  • Sawyer’s ending (after the final boss) no longer includes a weird comment from Seven
  • Autosave graphic should no longer persist permanently in some cases
  • Estoc will no longer repeat his comments, after floor 1 of the tutorial
  • Text message notification noises should no longer interrupt weapon comment voice acting at the start of a dungeon run
  • A few minor translation fixes
  • The content warning has been updated with stronger language to reflect the game more accurately. (English only — translations will follow)
  • Changed Halo to give more healing from beverages, rather than resurrect once.
  • Removed unnecessary reference to still-birth.
  • If Vegan, Estoc will cook a scramble for you instead of eggs. (voice line still says eggs for now)

  • Achievements should now be less prone to error and actually fire correctly if all equipment and gifts received.
  • The content warning translation has been updated to match the English improvements.
  • If you receive enough experience to reach level 51, the dungeon should now still function correctly.
  • If you get a Game Over during a date, reloading should now function correctly.
  • If you previously received a Game Over during a date, that save file should also now function correctly.
  • (Uncertain) Crafting text should get cut off/masked/hidden less often now.
  • You can no longer get stuck in phase 3 of the final boss fight (or after the boss fight) by doing damage to people or enemies that were meant to be invulnerable.
  • Using the Phoenix Cap during the final boss and then losing should now give you a new Phoenix Cap during your re-attempt.
