Cover, the Japanese company that owns and manages Hololive Productions, has signed a licensing agreement with Capcom. Cover made the announcement through its official Twitter account, detailing what this will mean for VTubers associated with Hololive Productions. The agreement states that VTubers who are a part of Hololive Productions, and by extension Cover, will now be able to legally play Capcom games on stream. This also includes posting content that includes any Capcom games or properties. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

This agreements extends to previous Capcom content broadcasted or posted by any associated VTuber. Hololive currently has over fifty VTubers as part of its talent lineup. This includes talent within and outside of Japan. Associated acts, such as Korone, have been added into titles like DOOM Eternal as Easter egg references.

Additionally, an assortment of VTubers will appear in Disgaea 6: Defiance of Fate as party members. These talents appear as DLC characters and have assigned classes associated with their personas. Recently,  D4DJ Groovy Mix added the Hololive song “Hyakkaryouran Hanafubuki” to their roster of available songs.

In September 2020, Hololive expanded their roster of talents and created an English division. This has included VTubers such as Mori Calliope, Takanashi Kiara, Ninomae Ina’is, Gwar Gura, and Watson Amelia.
