Taito Corporation released a brand-new free update for Groove Coaster Wai Wai Party on Nintendo Switch featuring Hololive VTubers Mori Calliope and Usada Pekora. Additionally, Nintendo Switch users can save 40% on the game for a limited time.
Hololive VTubers Mori Calliope and Usada Pekora join the Groove Coaster Wai Wai Party roster as selectable navigators. Pekora was recently featured in Dragon Quest Treasures as the voice of a new monster, so the VTuber has been busy lately in the realm of gaming. Alongside the arrival of the new navigators, Groove Coaster Wai Wai Party’s latest update makes a number of additions and improvements.
“Prism Melody,” “Journey Like a Thousand Stars,” and “tettetere! Gaming Days!” songs are available now with the free update. Moreover, a number of bug fixes and settings changes were made as well. The patch notes are quite extensive, so it may be worth a full read for active players here.
Adjustments and Enhancements
The December 22 update makes improvements to Ranked Match, adjustments to versus play, and changes to sound effects. According to Taito, a new rule allowing two players to play two songs has been added to Ranked Match. This new rule alternates with the existing 4-player game rule at regular intervals. Further, new rewards have been added to Ranked Match, and GC prices for items have been changed.
Wai Wai Stars have been adjusted in versus play. Taito reduces the stun duration and silence duration with the latest update. Additionally, the tone of the Dual Slide sound effect has been adjusted to “heighten the sense of performance.” Playback timing and volume balance for other sound effects were adjusted as well.
Lastly, Groove Coaster Wai Wai Party is on sale with a 40% discount until January 9, 2023. The major discount brings the Nintendo Switch game’s price down from $59.99 to $35.99. Eager players may visit the game’s Nintendo eShop page here.
