Now that the newest version of KONAMI‘s Sound Voltex series, Sound Voltex EXCEED GEAR, has been in Japanese arcades for a few weeks, the updates are starting to roll in. A couple of weeks ago they made the announcement that they would be adding new character theme songs to the EXCEED GEAR based on the winners from the Sound Voltex FLOOR contest.
Tomorrow on 11 March we get the newest three songs from that contest being added to the title.

The first two rounds of character themes being added to the game happened on 24 February with six songs being added, and on 3 March with an additional seven songs. Tomorrow’s update seems small compared with the previous updates, as we’re only getting three new songs being added. Those songs are:
- ‘りむむむむむむ’ / 立秋 feat.ちょこ (for the character Rimuru)
- ‘運命超過乃巡合’ / Aoi feat. Gra+yanshu (for the character Benimaru)
- ‘恋愛♡悪戯!?まじかる☆ぱふゅ〜む!!’ / さわわ feat. 杠葉えりか&凜々 (for the characters Kaworu & Ashita)
This really is one of the main things that I absolutely love about the Sound Voltex series. KONAMI is constantly adding new content for players to enjoy and it really keeps the game ‘alive’. Don’t get me wrong, I still absolutely love beatmania IIDX, but I would like to see more frequent updates for the song list similar to how they do it with Sound Voltex.
The new songs for Sound Voltex EXCEED GEAR will be available on all VALKYRIE MODEL machines starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning, 11 March 2021.
