Idea Factory and Otomate announced a release date for My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates that Stir the Waters, the Nintendo Switch visual novel inspired by series of the same name. It will show up digitally and physically in Japan on December 23, 2021. There will also be a limited edition, though details about its contents haven’t been revealed. [Thanks, Gematsu!]
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! focuses on Catarina Claes. She used to be a young woman who played the otome game Fortune Lover. When she died, she reincarnated as the rival character in that game. Unfortunately for her, “Catarina” was a terrible person and many of the “good” endings also involved her being exiled or dying. The original series follows the reincarnated girl as she does her best to be herself and avoid the pratfalls that led to the original Catarina’s doom in the game.
The My Next Life as a Villainess Switch game will be set after the events of the series and involve an original story. In addition to returning bachelors from the series Alan, Geordo, Keith, and Nicol, there will be new love interests like Silva the pirate.
Here’s the new trailer for My Next Life as a Villainess: Pirates that Stir the Waters, which shows off all of its old and new characters. It also teases some CGs from the game involving Catarina and both Geordo and Silva.
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! – Pirates that Stir the Waters will come to the Nintendo Switch in Japan on December 23, 2021. Its website is now open. The My Next Life as a Villainess light novel and manga are available in North America, and the anime is streaming on Crunchyroll.
