The Japanese version of BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! will re-run the Persona collaboration starting from September 23, 2021. This event originally went live in 2018, and the gacha focused on Afterglow. While the collaboration will feature covers of songs from Persona 3, 4, and 5, the Afterglow girls are all wearing Phantom Thieves outfits from Persona 5. [Thanks, Bandori_Updates!]
As mentioned above, the gacha will feature the Afterglow girls wearing clothing that draws inspiration from Persona 5. Prior to training, they are wearing civilian outfits while the background looks like an All-Out Attack. After training, they are wearing clothes that use motifs from the Thief costumes and their Personas.
- Ran Mitake: Joker/Arsene
- Himari Uehara: Panther/Carmen
- Moca Aoba: Oracle/Necronomicon
- Tomoe Udagawa: Queen/Johanna
- Tsugumi Hazawa: Noir/Milady
Afterglow covers “Reach Out To The Truth” from Persona 4, whereas Roselia covers “Kimi no Kioku” from Persona 3. Lastly, Poppin’ Party sings their version of “Life Will Change.” Excerpts of these songs on Expert mode are available from the official BanG Dream YouTube channel.
Aside from the Persona collaboration re-run, BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! will also have an event with Hololive. Rather than have a gacha, the event will feature three songs covered with the help of Hololive VTubers. They will also have promotional streams. The Hololive collaboration will take place in late October. The VTubers involved are Tokino Sora, Minato Aqua, and Shirakami Fubuki.
The Persona collaboration re-run in BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! will run from September 23, 2021 on the Japanese server. BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! is available on mobile devices, and the Nintendo Switch version launched on September 16, 2021.
