At their Anime Expo panel, Idea Factory International has just announced that they will be bringing My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates of the Disturbance to the west this Winter 2023 on Nintendo Switch.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates of the Disturbance is a romantic comedy otome game based on the My Next Life as a Villainess series, a Japanese light novel series written by Satoru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Nami Hidaka. The series has also seen manga and anime adaptations.
The game features an all-new story set in the My Next Life as a Villainess universe, meaning it can be enjoyed by both long-time fans and newcomers alike. As you progress through the story and fulfill certain conditions, you’ll unlock special Memory Scenarios. These episodes will take place from the perspective of the other characters in the story, and you’ll also experience events such as childhood memories and tales from academic life.
Furthermore, the game features 6 romanceable shipmates, including 2 all-new characters, and along your journey, you’ll sometimes face two paths before you. As seen in the light novel and anime, the protagonist will attend a meeting with five versions of herself—led by Chairman Catarina—to decide which route to take.
Idea Factory International has also summated the story:
The story features protagonist Catarina Claes as a young woman born into a family of nobility who has a memory of her past life as a high school student. She was reincarnated as a Villainess in an otome game called Fortune Lover. Exile or death were all that awaited her in this new world. However, she managed to evade these ends, and somehow made it through the year to spring break.
As fate would have it, both Catarina and her adopted brother, Keith, were to board a state-of-the-art luxury liner called the Vinculum on its maiden voyage during their time away from the Academy. Once aboard the ship, she realized her friends were also in attendance on what was meant to be a luxurious journey at sea.
The tides changed quickly when they were attacked by pirates who took over the Vinculum and held all of its passengers hostage. This turn of events all seemed familiar to Catarina, and she begins to recall this was the storyline to a Fortune Lover fanbook. Could this mean she’s living in a resurrection of a canned doom ending?! Will Catarina and her friends be able to return to Sorcier safely?
The publisher has also released several screenshots. You can view them in our gallery below:
