Amour’d Core Is a Fan-made Armored Core VI Dating Sim

In Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, characters mostly appear as names, voices, and sometimes an attached giant robot, but that hasn’t stopped fans falling in love with them. So much so that one fan is developing an unofficial Armored Core dating sim featuring the game’s various pilots with original designs and illustrations called Amour’d Core.

Developed by Austin-based artist Beth Short, Amour’d Core is a fan-made dating sim currently featuring nine Armored Core VI characters as romance options, with more planned. These include fan favorites like Handler Walter and Rusty, less prevalent characters like Pater and Maeterlinck, and even non-human characters like Ayre and ALLMIND.

Currently, there is no release date or list of expected platforms, and as an unaffiliated fan work the game’s development is supported by Short’s Patreon. There are several tiers of support available that include exclusive content and illustrations, and even the chance to appear in the game’s credits.

Here is some of the concept art for the game’s characters and UI from Short:

Back in December, 2023, pre-orders opened for a Handler Walter themed hoodie produced by Mamegyorai. Meanwhile, a behind-the-scenes seminar detailing the development of Armored Core 6 aired in Japan on January 19, 2024, featuring speakers from FromSoftware itself.

There is currently no release date for the Armored Core themed dating sim Amour’d Core, however you can support the development via Patreon, or follow the creator’s Instagram and Twitter accounts. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is immediately available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
