Thirty Suitors, Punch-Kicking Its Way To Nintendo Switch, Fight Your Exes

Thirty Suitors, Punch-Kicking Its Way To Nintendo Switch, Fight Your Exes ...

Thirsty Suitors, a South-Asian narrative game from Falcon Age studio Outerloop, has been demonstrating its wonderfully cute ex-fighting action game through their publisher, Annapurna. We were surprised when the Annapurna presentation revealed that the game would be available on Switch alongside other platforms.

Thirsty Suitors is a game that reveals a story about South Asian culture, from its choice of colors to its cooking minigame, with over-protective parents, a skateboarding mechanic, and a combat system built around flirting and insults. Protagonist Jala returns to her family after a few years to discover that her exes all want to fight and kiss her.

Chandana Ekanayake, a Sri Lankan kid who has informed a lot of the story's background and design, teamed up with 80 Days writer Meghna Jayanth to create a narrative that spoke about their lives and stories in an industry that rarely tackles South Asian representation.

Thirsty Suitors is the first game where we're making it for ourselves, according to Ekanayake in an interview with Wired.

There is no release date for now, but there is a demo available on Steam if you want to see it.
