KonoSuba Kono Yokubou no Ishou ni Chouai wo Announced on PS4, Switch
First story details, screenshots, preorders bonuses for the new KonoSuba Adventure game developed by Mages, coming to PS4 and Switch.
Mages announced on June 18 a brand new KonoSuba game, titled Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! -Kono Yokubou no Ishou ni Chouai wo!. it’ll launch in Japan on September 24, 2020, on PS4 and Switch.
The game is an ADV, meaning an adventure game akin to what most people outside Japan call a visual novel. Full-voice was confirmed.
The story of Kono Yokubou no Ishou ni Chouai wo features the KonoSuba party, who during one of their usual quests, find a cursed tablet that lets its user freely generate clothes. The cast all get cursed with personality-reverse. Darkness turns into a sadistic queen, Megumin turns into a lolita and starts a Lolita Alliance, and Aqua turns into an actual goddess-like person. The characters will need to make and wear specific clothes with the tablet to break the curse. It’s a game where you can enjoy typical comedy situations of KonoSuba along with the cast acting out of character and wearing different costumes. Hence the Japanese subtitle, which can be translated to “Love For the Costumes of Desires”.
Like in a typical ADV or dating sim, players need to manage their schedule and money, to try to lift the curse from the characters before a time limit. You can also move around between locations via a menu. Everything seems text-based.
KonoSuba Kono Yokubou no Ishou ni Chouai wo will have a normal edition for 7800 yen (tax excluded) and a limited edition for 10800 (tax excluded). The limited edition will include a game OST CD and SD figures of Aqua and Megumin wearing special costumes. The Aqua one will be in the Switch limited edition. The Megumin one in the PS4 limited edition.
First print copies of the game will include a DLC code for a bonus shmup game.
This new game is a follow-up to Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! -Kono Yokubukai Game ni Shinpan wo!-, released by Mages on September 7, 2017, on PS4 and PS Vita. The game had a similar story, where protagonist Kazuma Satou was cursed to forcefully steal panties.
There are shop-specific preorder bonuses as well. As usual with these they are pretty raunchy, so scroll down to the gallery below at your own risk. KonoSuba is a series targeting a male teen audience, so the preorder goods focus on sexual fanservice of its female characters. Shop specific preorder bonuses also include bonus swimsuit costumes as DLC. If you’re interested in importing, you can check which store has which goods on the official site.
