The Vtuber agency Hololive’s 1st and 2nd generations have landed in a update for Holocure, the fan-made Vampire Survivors-like game by Kay Yu. Holocure pits Hololive idols against hordes of mind-controlled fans in a 2D pixel action game inspired by Vampire Survivors and Magic Survival. It originally released in June 2022, with its first major update arriving in September that year.
The new update adds the Japanese branch 1st generation consisting of Natsuiro Matsuri, Aki Rosenthal, Akai Haato and Yozora Mel as well as the 2nd generation consisting of Murasaki Shion, Yuzuki Choco, Oozora Subaru, Nakiri Ayame and Minato Aqua. The game now boasts 24 characters, each with their own unique weapon and abilities, with an in-game screen teasing the inclusion of Hololive’s Indonesian branch in the next update.
Though the game is not affiliated with Cover Corp. and Hololive, the lead developer Kay Yu worked with the agency before, such as on the animated music video for the song “Q” by Hololive’s Gawr Gura and Calliope Mori, with music from DECO* 27. The video reached the milestone of 20 million views earlier this year.
Holocure is immediately available on PC for free over on Itch.io, and its new update is live. For more details check out the game’s Twitter account.
