Synopsis: Enter Virtualand – a digital world that exists alongside the networks of various dimensions. Within Virtualand lies the planet Emote – a planet faced with extinction due to the maleficent group of Content destroyers known as Antis.
In an act of desperation, the Digital Goddess of the planet Emote, Faira, sends a distress signal to other dimensions in hopes to find a savior of this planet.
And the saviors that were reached? The rising Vtuber stars, Me and You, members of MEWTRAL, as well as the Goddesses of Gamindustri: Neptune, Noire, Blanc, and Vert!
Can MEWTRAL and the Goddesses band together and save the planet Emote from complete destruction?
Field – Players will have to progress through several dungeons to defeat the Antis that await on the battlefield! Explore new and unique dungeons that range from giant libraries to structures made of desserts!
BeatTik – Take your Vtuber skills to the next level! Tap the buttons and move to the beat of the music. Unlock new stages and songs by getting high scores! You can even unlock a second dancer to appear on stage with you!
Fans can accessorize and coordinate outfits for the Goddesses and V-Idols. Aim to be the best Virtual Idol any dimension has ever seen!
Video Battler – Video Battler* is a system that lets you create items from BeatTik videos you’ve recorded! Gather Video Stones in the field to create items from your BeatTik videos. Each unique video can create up to 5 new items. The higher your BeatTik score, the rarer the items!
Each item you receive will be in the form of “Rad Colle Cards”. These cards can be a mixture of MoE Accessories, items, Convert Chara Cards, and more! Will you collect them all?
*The Video Battler feature has been modified for the North American and European release to convert recorded BeatTik videos, rather than using videos on the internet, to convert into items.*
MoE Accessories – Are you feeling silly today? Cute? You decide! Players can equip up to three cute accessories onto the Goddesses and playable V-Idols! You can customize the placement and also alter the size to your liking.
What makes MoE accessories fun is that they will be visible in almost every scene! Dungeons, event scenes, and even on the BeatTik stage!
The Cloud – Neptune and company’s base is a management facility called the “Cloud”. All the Goddesses, as well as the V-Idols, gather at this locale. Speak with Faira, access different areas you can explore, and more!
