Bushiroad will bring BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! to Nintendo Switch in 2021. The company made this announcement at the franchise’s 6th-anniversary live stream held on February 28, 2021. [Thanks, Gamer!]
Girls Band Party is a rhythm game with visual novel elements that lets players learn more about each member of the bands grouped in the BanG Dream franchise, which also has anime adaptations and live performances by the actual voice actresses. Bushiroad also collaborated with Atlus to bring crossover content from Persona 3, 4, and 5 to this game.
The mobile game first launched in Japan on May 16, 2017. Bushiroad then brought it worldwide with the English version released in April 2018 and East Asian localizations launched in-between. The game surpassed 13 million downloads in Japan alone in July 2020 and 20 million worldwide as of September 2020.
Bushiroad regularly adds more content to Girls Band Party with not only costumes and songs but also new characters and bands. Morfonica was the newest band to join the franchise in March 2020.
BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! is immediately available on Android and iOS mobile devices. The Nintendo Switch version is expected to arrive within 2021. Although the mobile releases are available worldwide, it is yet to be known if the Switch version will support more languages other than Japanese or not.
