posted on by Egan Loo
New 9-girl idol group Aqours get own regular Niconico Live program on January 22

The Love Live! Sunshine!! project's live-streamed special announced on Monday that the project's idol group Aqours will join the Love Live! School Idol Festival game app. Aqours' songs will join the smartphone game's regular lineup as they come out, starting this summer.

In addition, the game will start a newly created story with Aqours as cards. The game already features Aqours music as special bonus tracks for a limited time, but their music will now be available as regular tracks. Before then, the seal shop will offer the Aqours' uniform R cards starting on January 31 at 4:00 p.m. The special cards will not have voices during this early release, but voices will be added in the future during their formal release.

Monday's live stream also announced that Aqours will start their own regular streamed program on Niconico Live on January 22. "Love Live! Sunshine!! Aqours Niconico Live Extracurricular Activity ~It's a trio! One [Ichi], Two [Ni], Sun[San or Three]shine!!~" will begin with the three second-year students.

Monday's live stream announced a television anime adaptation has been green-lit for this summer. It also announced that Aqours' second single will go on sale on April 27.

As of September, Love Live! School Idol Festival has garnered over 12 million users in Japan and over 20 million users worldwide.
