KonoSuba: Megumin And All The Heroines Got Their Specific Route In This Mages ADV Coming to PS4, Switch
Event CGs screenshots, details for each route in the upcoming KonoSuba ADV game: Aqua, Megumin, Darkness, Wiz, Yunyun, Chris, and Sena.
Mages revealed multiple new details on its KonoSuba ADV game these past few days, most notably how each Heroine, Megumin, Aqua, Darkness and co, have their own routes. As we lengthily explained, the game features the KonoSuba gang discovering a magic tablet that can generate clothes, but also curses its users with personality reversal. The only way to undo it is to wear specific clothes.
Overall, it’s an excuse to make the cast appear in unusual situations not from the novel and anime, with unusual outfits. For some fanservice and some sexual fanservice. Remember KonoSuba is originally a novel targeting male teens. And this is a Japanese game, Galge, a Bishoujo game, a visual novel, whatever you wanna call it, so don’t read further if you can’t stand that stuff. Or if it could bring you trouble.
Like in Tokimeki Memorial, players will have limited days to complete their objective, deciding on their schedule each week. KonoSuba ADV will also include different endings but only for three routes: the ones for Aqua, Megumin and Darkness. They each have a “Normal” ending and a “Good” ending.
We translated the story pitch for each Heroine’s route below, and rounded up the screenshots for each.
KonoSuba Aqua Route:
Aqua is in debt again, having spent way too much at the bar. Kazuma decides to help her repay the debt by looking up jobs she could do. During their search, the group hears from Luna a certain rumor: there’s a cave nearby with treasure. Aqua gets all hyped when she hears anything they find as treasure in the cave will be added to the quest’s reward. They decide to check it out. However, that rumor was obviously too good to be true, and something’s fishy…
KonoSuba Megumin Route:
Megumin has a familiar named Chomusuke. She thinks it’s super cute and always take it with her, especially when casting Explosion magic. However, she ends up loosing Chomusuke. Megumin believes it couldn’t have gone outside town. So Kazuma and co start searching all of Axel for it. However, without Chomusuke, Megumin gets depressed and just spends all her time as a shut-in at the church.
KonoSuba Darkness Route:
Darkness as usual is having masochistic delusions, like getting her clothes dissolved by slimes. One day she ends up accepting the perfect quest for that scenario at the guild. Kazuma and co are reluctant but end up going with her. Yunyun goes too. But the quest doesn’t go as planned.
Kazuma is sick of his party and how being an isekai protagonist is nothing like he imagined. Wiz listens to his concerns. Wiz’ magic shop isn’t going well either, and her friend Vanir is worried too. Together with Kazuma, they foment a plan of using the cursed tablet to generate high-quality outfits for Wiz to sell. To use the tablet, Wiz will have to ask Aqua though, and as you know, Aqua hates her at times.
Yunyun is super nice and always politely brings presents to Kazuma’s party. Darkness tells her she shouldn’t act like a stranger around them, and how she should better take care of herself. Following that, Yunyun decides to ask Kazuma to teach her how to be a more selfish person. Kazuma is perplexed by Yunyun’s weird request, but accepts to help seeing how she really wants to get along with other people, especially Megumin. A terrible misunderstanding ends up happening.
Chris is currently tailing Dust. The underwear of the girls from the bar were all stolen, and he’s the prime suspect. Being very empathic with those who got their panties stolen, she wants to catch the culprit at all costs, and asks Kazuma to help her with the case. As they spend time together, the two become more aware of each other. One night, Chris goes in Kazuma’s room…
Sena can’t keep up with her job as a royal prosecutor. Kazuma tries to cheer her up and make a good impression by gifting her outfits made with the cursed tablet. Sena refuses, considering it bribing. Kazuma and co become frantic, making various plans to try and make Sena wear the clothes, forgetting their original objective in the process.
That’s all. Seven Heroines. Seven routes.
Besides the various Heroines, multiple side characters from the KonoSuba anime and original novel will be appearing. So far, Luna, Dust, Keith, and a “mysterious man in black robes” have been revealed. The game will be fully voiced, so these side-characters will be voiced as well.
KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! is originally a web novel part of the Isekai trend, written by Natsume Akatsuki.

It’s one of the most appreciated works of the ongoing Isekai boom, with a focus on comedy and Fantasy.
