Death March Love Comedy Will Head to the Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC


Kemco has announced that rom-com visual novel Death March Love Comedy will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC in Japan on June 25, 2020 for ¥3,000 (roughly $28). However, only PlayStation 4 owners will have the option of getting a physical edition, which will cost ¥3,666 (roughly $34).

Death March Love Comedy is a visual novel that is all about love. Really, it’s a visual novel about avoiding falling in love, all while trying to solve various mysteries in your school. You play as Kei Yagi, a transfer student who’s desperate to avoid love confessions. Why? Because if Kei is confessed to, he’ll explode and die. However, he quickly falls into a love triangle with two girls, meaning that an explosion could happen at any moment.

Its new editions will be receiving all new graphics and quality of life upgrades. One major upgrade will help make decision making less punishing. Death March Love Comedy will utilize Raging Loop’s dynamic scenario chart, allowing players to easily explore the story’s dialogue decisions without having to save after every decision. 

Additionally, the physical edition of Death March Love Comedy will come with two bonus postcards. One will be a collaboration with Raging Loop and feature Haruaki Fusaishi. This is because it is actually a sister game to Raging Loop, which released outside of Japan in 2019.

Previously, Death March Love Comedy was a smartphone game for Android and Apple iOS device. It was eventually ported to the Wii U in Japan. 

Death Match Love Comedy will be about 30 hours long and will launch on June 25, 2020 in Japan for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam. Currently, there’s no word on if it could be localized.
