As expected and teased, Usada Pekora will join the Hololive Vtuber fighting game Idol Showdown. She made her debut at Evo 2023. Besto Games revealed a trailer showing her off and teasing the performer’s moveset. She will join as a free roster update on August 11, 2023.
The Usada Pekora Idol Showdown trailer begins with a warning. The Oozora Police issued a warning about an individual who leaves carrots at the scenes of her crimes. That’s when we get to see the Vtuber appear and get a better look at her moveset.
However, she’s not the only member of Hololive to be featured. At the 35 second mark of the video, the Houshou Marine pirate ship stage appears. We get to see the two attack together. Ninomae Ina’nis is also featured at the 51 second mark.
There are still two more Hololive Vtubers confirmed to be joining the fighting game. This video didn’t offer us any hints as to their possible identities, however. At the moment, there are still only eight playable characters, and they’re all from the company’s Japanese branch. As such, it’s possible the final two could be pulled from the English or Indonesian branches.
