Square Enix has opened up pre-orders for the Switch version of Ketsugou Danshi, or Bonding Boys: Elements with Emotions. It will come out in Japan on June 29, 2023 and it’ll cost 3,300 JPY ($24.15). The iOS and Android version of the game has a release window of Summer 2023. [Thanks, Game Watch!]

If you pre-order the game before August 31, 2023, you can get a data book containing information on all of the characters. There will also be a premium Collectors’ Edition of the game that’ll come out on June 29, 2023. This will cost 27,500 JPY ($200) and will come with a nui doll, posters, can badges, clear cards, the soundtrack, art book, drama CD, and data book. All of it will come in a special box.

As a reminder, Ketsugou Danshi will come with four boys by default. You will get Saku (Hydrogen), Eito (Oxygen), Rikka (Carbon), and Shiki (Beryllium) in the base game. The other six boys who are in the game are paid DLC characters. They cost 1,100 JPY each. After June 29, 2023, an all-in-pack costing 9900 JPY ($72) containing the base game and DLC will be available as well.

Ketsugou Danshi is a visual novel that takes place in a world that will end in fifty days. The “Dead Matter” Threat will bring about the apocalypse. However, you and the chemical boys can use your bond powers to fight against them. In combat, the boys can combine their powers to create chemical reactions, which will offer different buffs depending on the compound created. In total, there will be a maximum of 45 routes and over 90 different endings.

Ketsugou Danshi will come out in Japan on June 29, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch. Android and iOS versions of the game will come out in Summer 2023. You can pre-order it here.
