BanG Dream! Girls Band Party x Hatsune Miku Collaboration

It is not uncommon to see collaborations between vocaloids and anime music franchises. The EN version of the mobile rhythm game BanG Dream! Girls Band Party has released their update regarding their collaboration with Hatsune Miku from June 10th to 12th.

The update also sees a change in the game app icon, featuring Kasumi from Poppin’Party and Hatsune Miku. 

Additionally, three song covers have been added to the game as part of the collaboration and they were each released over the course of three days. The songs will be available for purchase in the music shop at CiRCLE in the game. 

“Lost One’s Weeping” by Afterglow (originally by Neru feat. Kagamine Rin) 

This is one of my favourite covers to play on the expert mode, despite the infuriating amount of slide notes in the beatmap. I’m still trying to FC this! Gameplay aside, it’s always refreshing to hear Ran’s (CV: Sakura Ayane) insane vocal range, especially during the chorus. 

“Alien Alien” by Hello, Happy World! (originally by Nayutalien feat. Hatsune Miku)

This cover only further highlights Kokoron’s (CV: Miku Itou) cute voice. Not so cute on the fingers, though. It’s fine on the hard mode mode, but it can be rather challenging on expert, with the occasional flicks surprising you here and there. It's definitely a fitting cover for Hello, Happy World.

“Romeo and Cinderella” by Poppin’Party (originally by Doriko feat. Hatsune Miku)

I'm not going to lie, I didn't actually expect Poppin’Party to cover this song as I thought that it would be a more mature-sounding sound for them. I wasn’t disappointed though, because I actually liked it a lot, and I definitely dig the deeper-sounding Kasumi (CV: Aimi) here. Edgy Poppin’Party is good. Really good. 

A login campaign following the collaboration has also been added, allowing players to receive shards, stars and exclusive live costumes to promote the song covers that were added. For players who have purchased paid stars, they will be able to roll for a *4 guaranteed gacha. 

As mentioned, all members of Afterglow, Hello Happy World and Poppin’Party were given exclusive live costumes. 

Adorable Kokoron with her twin buns and alien headgear.

 Himari with her hair down. Alternate hairstyles are always nice to see.

 And Kasumi with her hair up. (And gasp, her cat-like hairstyle is gone)  

On a side note, do check out the ongoing "Beatin in the Rain" event as well! The event story is pretty wholesome and fun, with eccentric personalities like Tomoe, Kasumi and Kokoro getting together for some Taiko fun. They even drag along Misaki and Sayo into their shenanigans, which makes way for some interesting conversations. Gather up event points with the VS Live in order to unlock prizes, event stories as well as the featured Kasumi and Michelle cards.

The BanG Dream! Girls Band Party x Hatsune Miku Collaboration Campaign ends on June 24th, so get tappin’ if you’re interested! Bang Dream! Girls Band Party is available on the iOS and Android for free.
