![alt text](http://i.imgur.com/iUcUDGI.png "Bandori.News") # Bandori.News Round Up! vol. 9 We've decided to switch the format to bi-weekly, This is mostly due to the news itself being kind of slow, twitter being accessible, and my (violetR)'s new upcoming work schedule. I hope you all will still check in for these updates, and if anything time sensitive comes up, we will try to tweet or retweet when information comes up! Thank you! ## Game News The game has seen alot of new additions in the last two weeks. First off, a [New Event](http://bandori.party/event/16/6th-Afterglow/) and Gacha began featuring **Afterglow**! The 4 star for this was Himari Uehara, and our event card is Ran Mitake! The event wraps up in 7 hours. Be sure to grind quickly if you're wanting to stay in a certain tier, or get your rewards! As for songs, we'll start with a cover from **Poppin'Party**. ["Only my railgun"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_q5K8p_8SI) from fripSide was released. This is part of the 4 covers that were announced from the beginning of August. The only song remaining is from **Afterglow** on 31 August. Our original songs we've gotten these last few weeks were "*Hachigatsu no IF*" from **Poppin'Party** to commemorate the airing of the Bang Dream! anime OVA. Additionally, **Roselia**'s new single, "*Nesshoku Starmine*" was added to commemorate their appearance at Anisama, a large concert event where anime music is performed. More information can be found about the event if you can read Sakuragawa Megu(Ako)'s [blog](https://lineblog.me/sakuragawa_megu/archives/597941.html)! Finally, [Story 17](https://twitter.com/bang_dream_gbp/status/902004776652611584) released on the GBP app, giving everyone access to the Rimi solo song, "*Chocolate Teion no Recipe*". The release of this new main story ended the exclusive Dream Festival gacha for 3.5 million users on the GBP app, where we saw a 3% chance for a 4 star member. Additionally, the RT campaign for the Lawson Collab cards [was successful!](https://twitter.com/bandori_updates/status/899967339738693632) We should be getting the cards very soon, as we already have their stats on site! Finally, news from the CiRCLE Broadcast! Bandori Updates provides us with all the information for this segment. [Battle Live Events](https://twitter.com/bandori_updates/status/898528556052959232) will be the next type of event.

[Free Lives](https://twitter.com/bandori_updates/status/898530355090661377) will now have score rankings and new missions will accompany them. The previously announced [SS Rank](https://twitter.com/bandori_updates/status/898530515753381888) update will also see the addition of a master room.

All of these updates are subject to change and we have no information on their implementation.
