New trailer below!

Seen in the trailer are a few characters from other Bandai Namco games. This is a mode called “Guest Session Performance.” Within this mode, you’ll be able to play alongside special characters. The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu confirms that Hello Kitty, Hatsume Miku, Pac-Man, and Heihachi Mishima will also appear as well as Doraemon. This mode looks great and will love to see how the characters interact and change throughout the songs.

We’re wayyyy too excited to pick up the game and drum. Expect some livestreams once this releases. The game is up and available for pre-order via Play-Asia! We’ll update you when the bundle is available.
