Idea Factory International announced that it will release the My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! -Pirates of the Disturbance- visual novel game physically and digitally for the Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe on November 28, 2023.
The game will also receive a Limited Edition version that will be sold exclusively on Idea Factory International’s store website, with the contents set to be revealed at a later date.
Pirates of the Disturbance was first announced on September 26, 2020 and was released on the Nintendo Switch exclusively in Japan in December 2022.
The game follows an original story that takes place as Catarina is moving beyond the game’s final graduation event and evading all her “doom flags.” She faces a new “doom flag” related to a new meeting and sudden encounter with a pirate.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! inspired two anime seasons in 2020 and 2021, respectively. An upcoming anime film is set to be released on December 8, 2023.
The series in turn adapts the original 2015 light novel series, written by Satoru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Nami Hidaka. Thirteen volumes have been released as of September 20, 2023.
Crunchyroll is streaming both anime seasons and describes the story as:
Wealthy heiress Catarina Claes is hit in the head with a rock and recovers the memories of her past life. It turns out the world she lives in is the world of the game Fortune Lover, an otome game she was obsessed with in her past life… but she’s been cast as the villain character who tries to foil the protagonist’s romances! The best ending the game has for Catarina is exile, and the worst, death! She’ll have to find a way to avoid triggering the flags of doom, and make her own happy future! The misunderstanding-based screwball love comedy now begins!
