Frau Koujiro and FM Music DLCs Now Available!

Frau Koujiro, the genius programmer and super otaku from 5pb’s popular VN Robotics;Notes, is now available as DLC! Frau mostly depends on the strength of others, attacking with both her robots and friends. She is playable in all modes and also comes with her own set of achievements. This DLC also increases the base game’s level cap from 50 to 99 if the Kurisu Makise DLC is not already owned.

The “FM BGM” DLC is also now available. This changes the entire soundtrack to use retro, arcade-style Frequency Modulation (FM) sound source background music!

Toggle between the new FM and the classic Programmable Sound Generator (PSG) BGM from the “Settings” menu.

Don't forget multiplayer modes are also available!
