Entergram mentioned the game will have new elements not found in the original. These new elements weren’t detailed yet however. The new version will also have a limited edition, with a special cover artwork featuring Megumin and Yunyun in swimsuits:
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! ~Kibou no Meikyuu to Tsudoishi Boukenshatachi~ first launched in Japan on June 27, 2019, on PS4 and PS Vita. It’s a classic dungeon crawler set in the KonoSuba universe. The characters have pretty cool looking animated cut-ins when using skills. You can watch some gameplay below:
KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! is originally a web novel part of the Isekai trend, written by Natsume Akatsuki. Its publication ran from 2012 to 2013 on Shōsetsuka ni Narō. A much longer light novel version ran in Japan from 2013 to 2020, with illustrations by Kurone Mishima. The novel got multiple anime and manga adaptations and is pretty popular worldwide. It’s one of the most appreciated Isekai, alongside Re:Zero, which is also getting a new game. I’ve personally never experienced either as I’m not a big fan of Isekai. KonoSuba’s author also writes another excellent comedy story though, titled Sentouin, Hakenshimasu!, and I highly recommend it.
In the past, we covered some gameplay for the original game, along with the first trailer, the first screenshots, pre-order bonuses, the opening animation movie and the playable characters, and the Princess Maker clone game featuring Aqua found in first print copies.
Entergram is also working on two new Ryukishi07 games, Gensou Rougoku no Kaleidoscope, and a new console version of Umineko. Read more on both games here.
