Due to the commencement of another in-game raffle for New Year’s, which I expect not to do very well in again, I have spent the last few hours binging the smartphone rhythm game The [email protected] Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage. For those unaware, this is a spin-off game in the long-running Japanese media franchise, co-developed by CyGames and Bandai Namco Entertainment.
One of the more recent significant additions to the rhythm game is GRAND live performances. While every song in the game usually requires players to select five characters to perform on-stage regardless of how many vocalists sing – although they don’t always appear in the MV – GRAND ups the anti and features performances with between 6-15 characters featured.
Go Just Go! is one of the latest songs to receive a choreographed GRAND version in Starlight Stage. Like Joker before it, this song features a cast of nine characters who can be switched in-and-out. Again, I didn’t have all the characters in my collection to make the original unit (Riamu Yumemi, Yui Ohtsuki, Karen Hojo, Shin Sato, Shiki Ichinose, Kako Takafuji, Atsumi Munakata, Mizuki Kawashima, and Kyoko Igarashi), so I shook the cast up with nine characters I never get enough chances to use in-game!
I would like to mention that The [email protected] Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage is a “Gacha Game”. Therefore, if you are known to have issues with gambling or spending well over your limit on a whim, then I would strongly advise you to bypass this game and look for a console or PC game which has a flat-fee single-player and/or online mode. In particular, ones which require no “surprise mechanics”, “chance-based downloadable content”, or other industry terms for gacha in them.
Take That (In-Game) Snap Daily Photo is an off-shoot of the Take That (In-Game) Snap article series, in which the first article focusing on Final Fantasy XIV was recently published. This looks at, celebrates and critiques how video game developers have implemented professional photography-like systems into their games. It will cover how the systems handle, just how accessible they are and, where applicable, how a modding community might be making these tools even better. With this Daily Photo spin-off series, I will be sharing individual photos from the games either covered or soon-to-be-covered in the series.
