To celebrate the addition of the new content in the game, players will receive one Love Gem or Scouting Ticket every day during the event as a special login bonus for seven days starting on Tuesday, May 17.

In addition to the second anniversary of the game’s release, fans of Love Live! School Idol Festival have something else to celebrate. The app update released on May 16 has been heralded as the largest content update for the English version of the game since its initial release in 2014. The new update introduces a suite of revisions that bring the English version of the app refreshingly close to the Japanese original―something fans of the series have been looking forward to for a long time.

 

 

Sticker Shop Added

A popular feature in the Japanese version of the game, the Sticker Shop, made its English debut in the update released yesterday. This handy feature allows players to exchange Stickers earned by letting go of R+ members (by either removing them or using them to practice with other members) for other members and items.* The new Sticker Shop gives players an opportunity to acquire limited edition members and other dream cards that were once thought lost to the annals of Love Live! history.
* Offer does not apply to certain members such as those acquired through serial codes and Alpacas.

New and Improved Home Screen

In addition to new story content, a significant portion of the update centers on the visual appeal and playability of the game. Players can expect a newly refined UI designed to give them easier access to the features and screens used most, as well as a few extra goodies to take their live performances to the next level.

 

 

Titles

The update introduces a wide variety of Titles for users to collect and show off to friends. Players can earn Titles by fulfilling certain sets of requirements that give them access to these flashy pieces of flair. This new feature lets players proudly display their support for their favorite members by showing off the Title of their choice on their profile.

Goals

The Goals feature has been improved significantly. In addition to a new icon resembling a ring of flashcards reminiscent of after school assignments, the update brings a few other changes as well. Album Rewards are now included in the new and improved version of the feature. Players can also be awarded with new Titles for completing certain Goals.

 

Wallpapers

Easily the most eye-catching part of the update, players can now customize the look of their Home screen with the new Wallpaper selection system. Players can take their favorite club members to exotic locales, heartwarming holiday vistas, and more by completing certain Goals to earn new Wallpapers which are used as backgrounds for their Home screen.
