Rhythm games have been making us happily tap our fingers to the beat for a while now, with Superstar BTS and Superstar SMTown ranking as two of the top apps. Following in these games’ footsteps, we now have BanG Dream! Girls Band Party!, a fantastic new music game based on the BanG Dream! franchise, and that also offers a story mode complete with dialogue.
BanG Dream! is a big name in pretty much all forms of media. This franchise has gotten its hands on just about every field you can imagine: music albums, short novels, manga adaptations, card videogames, an anime series, and even live musicals. This girl-band saga has been outrageously popular and it’s now come calling in the form of a musical rhythm game.
The gameplay in BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! is basically divided into two parts: the rhythm game, which is the same as in Beat Fever (you tap the music notes as they fall from the upper part of the screen), and story mode where you get to experience the adventures of the five bands in the game. What’s interesting about it is that you need to advance in both parts in order to keep unlocking new songs and dialogue options. Although the story mode doesn’t let you choose, you’ll find the typical visual novel dialogues and all the characters have high-quality dubbing.
One of the great things about the game is the enormous number of songs it offers. BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! has a ton of original songs, but it also has classics and recent hits from the world of anime: Silhouette from Naruto, Guren no Yumiya from Shingeki no Kyojin (check out the new game on Android), Fuwa Fuwa Time from K-ON!, Sobakasu from Rurouni Kenshin, Butter-Fly from Digimon, Sorairo Days from Gurren Lagann… and the list goes on. You’ll be able to take your pick from all your favorite anime songs. Best of all, you can expect the app to be updated with new songs in the future, making it a great music source that’s not going to leave us hanging anytime soon.
Let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! is -hands down- one of the best rhythm games available on Android. Its mix between your everyday music game and visual novel makes it the epitome of the genre on mobile devices. And all that comes with the enormous popularity of BanG Dream! What more could we ask for?
