The second collaboration event between Hatsune Miku and BanG Dream! Girls Band Party will go live on August 23 in the Japanese version of the popular mobile rhythm game! Below is the main visual for the event featuring Miku with the members of Pastel＊Palettes. The Miku-themed skins for live performances will also make a return!
The cover song that the idol band will be performing for the event is からくりピエロ / Karakuri Pierrot by 40mP. Just like with the first Miku collaboration, they will soon have the music video for the cover on YouTube and Niconico. The short version will be revealed first on August 22, 12:00 PM (JST) and will stay available until August 25, 11:59 AM (JST). The full version will then be made public on August 26.
Speaking of the first Miku collab, it has also been announced that the music videos for its three cover songs will soon be made available again for viewing!
Players in the game can also soon unlock the Karakuri Pierrot-themed outfits for the Pastel＊Palettes members when the event goes live, and the outfits from the previous collaboration will be made available again through the Michelle sticker exchange.
