Here’s a video of someone doing quite well at one of the new crossover tracks:

 

Moving on, Sega also relaunched the WORLD’S END mode with a new note-type and a set of all-new charts (previous WORLD’S END charts have all been removed). The new note-type is the damage note, basically mines. When it comes, you have to avoid touching the sensor bar in the location of the note. It’s an interesting addition which, if it ever makes the main game, might address some of the ‘mash-friendly’ criticisms that have been levelled at the game so far. You can watch ‘Galaxy-class Talented Music Game Player’, Dolce. try his hand at the new mode here.

'If this note comes, avoid it! If you touch, it's a miss!'
‘If this note comes, avoid it! If you touch, it’s a miss!’

The new set of WORLD’S END charts (and their gimmicks) are as follows:

AVOID(避)Charts with the damage notes

Your Affection (Daisuke Asakura Remix) – 目黒 将司 (Shoji Meguro)

一触即発☆禅ガール – れるりり (Isshokusokuhatsu Zen Girl – Reruriri)

SPEED (速) – These charts are just very fast

sweet little sister – Silver Forest

Jack-the-Ripper◆ – sasakure.UK

DIVIDE(割)Small notes used throughout chart

ぼくらの16bit戦争 – sasakure.UK (Bokura no 16bit Sensou)

HOP(跳) – Tons of air

FREEDOM DiVE – xi

LIGHT(光) All glowing/yellow notes

GOLDEN RULE – Morrigan

GEMINI -C- – Tatsh

DOUBLE(両) The chart is squeezed to half size and then mirrored

The ether – 浜渦正志 (Masashi Hamauzu)

STOP(止) – Chart starts and stops throughout

Cyberozar – 消去 (Shokyo)

 

I happened to have a day off of work, so went down to a not-so local Round 1 to give it a try. I only had a couple of turns, but the new up/down notes were a bit hard to immediately adapt to since they seem to mainly appear in Master-level tracks. But then of course the challenge is the fun part.

We’ll be bringing more CHUNITHM AIR-related news as it comes.
