PQube has announced an upcoming release of KONOSUBA – God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! Love For These Clothes Of Desire! (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! ~Kono Yokubou no Ishou ni Chouai o!~) on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The translation involves work by Andrew ‘Steiner’ Hodgson and ‘Bango’. Andrew Hodgson (also the Head of Localization at PQube Games) described this as a “resource management game where you decide what to create, how to earn money and resources, and what to do to decide the course of the plot” and noted it as having “multiple character routes and endings”. No comment has been made about the release date other than that it is ‘coming soon’. The earlier 2017 Konosuba title has not been mentioned.

Follow Kazuma and company, as they discover a mysterious “Black Slab” with the ability to create magical outfits that curse the wearer with new, intense desires. The girls must wear each of these outfits and fulfil these desires to break the curse and complete their quest. Are you ready to meet Darkness as a ruthless dominatrix? How about Aqua as a primp and proper goddess? Or Megumin as the proud leader of the Lolita League?

Frontwing have announced AIKAGI After Days as coming soon on Steam.

AIKAGI After Days is the follow up to the ‘iyashikei’ or healing visual novel AIKAGI, which we reviewed some time back. It’s a kinetic visual novel, with no branching routes, where you spend the summer experiencing romantic moments with the protagonist’s childhood friend.

AIKAGI After Days depicts a young couple enjoying their college life together. They go on casual dates, work part-time jobs, and their sweet life is filled with happiness as they cherish every single moment they are together. Some scenes take place in the apartment they share, while other scenes take you to campus, to the mall, or even to the restaurants nearby. There are plenty of new situations that weren’t in the previous game!

Our hero used to go to Akiba a lot when he was younger. It wasn’t to have fun, but for his little sister’s sake. One day, his younger sister is gifted a Christmas trip, and they spend time together as if they’re a couple. This is the delightful and touching love story of these two siblings.
