Eternights, an apocalyptic dating game from Studio Sai, has been confirmed to release on PS4 and PS5 in early 2023.
A mix of action-RPG, dungeon-crawling and, well, encounters, Eternights lets players choose which of these activities to prioritize during any given day – echoing the daily schedule of games like Persona in the process.
Whether you choose to gather supplies, tackle a dungeon, or hang out with someone special is up to you how you spend your time. Oh and there are also dancing mini-games – because why not huh?
You can check out the fact sheet (via Steam) for Eternights below, in addition to the first gameplay trailer as well:
eternal nights is a dating action game, blending a love story with adrenaline-fuelled combat as you make the most of life during the apocalypse. Collect supplies, explore dungeons… and surrender!
Save the world and find love along the way.
Confront the Infected – Something or someone once turned humans into dangerous monsters. All they care about now is violence and power. They are what stands between you, a cure, and the world you want. The most important ? You are fighting for more than your own survival – you are fighting for those you love.
find love – The impending end of the world is a great conversation starter! When you’re not exploring the dungeons, you can choose to spend time getting close to a cast of five quirky and lovable characters. Explore their stories and get close to them to unlock unique skills and spells that you can use in battle.
Race against the clock – Scavenging, dungeon exploration, encounters… there is simply too much to do in one day, and each area has a deadline! Will you bond with your Confidant to deepen your relationship and unlock new skills? Will you be able to search the desert for supplies? Will you get stronger by training with your companions? Or are you going to ignore all of this and go to the dungeon at the first opportunity? It’s up to you to decide, but remember that time is running out.
Explore dungeons – These dangerous areas, known as the “Wall”, are filled with mystery and danger. As the deadline draws near, you’ll need to quickly overcome traps, puzzles, and dancing mini-games to get out in time. Fortunately, you have your confidants by your side to help you when the going gets scary.
Animated cutscenes – There are several fully animated 2D cutscenes that change depending on who you decide to hang out with. Immerse yourself and truly connect with the characters you spend time with.
