Konami Starts Online Event for Crossover Songs from the Bemani Series

bemani Header

In a move that could be attributed to the current state of emergency throughout the country of Japan, Konami has started an online exclusive event to obtain songs from the various Bemani games for play in other Bemani games. The event is titled “Bemani Cho Janken Taikai 2020” and has users participate in rock-paper-scissors with an adorably cute character. When you play the game, you will have to pick from obviously, rock, paper, or scissors, netting you points that you can use to unlock songs to play in the respective games.

There seem to be 3 phases that this will be happening across with the first phase starting today, May 7th. The current songs which can be obtained via the online Bemani unlock event currently are;

take me higher – KOTONOHOUSE (From Dance Rush Stardom to be playable in Beatmania IIDX 27 Heroic Verse)

Silly Love – DÉ DÉ MOUSE (From Beatmania IIDX 27 Heroic Verse to be playable in Dance Dance Revolution A20)

ATRAX – BEMANI Sound Team “HuΣeR” (From Jubeat Festo to be playable in Dance Rush Stardom)

Invisible Farewell – BEMANI Sound Team “TAKA×PON×Akhuta” (From Pop’n Music PEACE to be playable in Gitadora NEX+AGE)

Memories of Araucaria – Cororo (From Nostalgia Op.3 to be playable in Jubeat Festo)

Turn the Story – technoplanet feat. Kuroto Sion (From Sound Voltex Vivid Wave to be playable in Nostalgia Op.3)

Visterhv- Feryquitous (From Beatmania IIDX 27 Heroic Verse to be playable in Pop’n Music PEACE)

BLAZE∞BREEZE – BEMANI Sound Team “TAG×PON” (From Pop’n Music PEACE to be playable in Sound Voltex Vivid Wave)

 

You’re only allowed to play the Janken game once each day and there is no indication as to how many points are required to unlock each song to play in their respective games. The time that I did it today, I won and was awarded five points. The play counter resets each day at 3 pm JST.
Just the fact that they’re doing another online Bemani unlock crossover event as they have in the past but this time completely online is something which I am thankful for as many of the game centers that I frequent are currently closed and will be closed for the remainder of the month. So being able to unlock content without having to play the games directly is something that is very appreciated.
