Liliana Adoronato was born and raised in the church in the center of the Italian city of Burlone. Three criminal organizations control parts of the city, and Lili discovers that she is literally in the center of their turf wars. Her encounters with the leaders of the Falzone, Visconti, and Lao-Shu families lead to danger and distraction. Once Lili is drawn into the shadowy world of organized crime, she realizes there is no going back.

The Nintendo Switch has increasingly become the console of choice for visual novel creators in the wake of Sony’s censorship policies. Last year Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa reaffirmed Nintendo’s commitment to “diversity and fairness of game software” and that it is not the place of platform management companies to inhibit it.
Piofiore: Fated Memories launches Fall 2020 on Nintendo Switch.
