★ The Future of School Idol Festival: Second Part ★

Preceding the large-scale update that will bring in Aqours on 7/5, new information on the coming update will be published for the second week in a row! This time we’ll be talking about “New Card Features”, “Member List” and “Music”.

SSR Rarity

A new “SSR” rarity will appear with the update! SSR will appear in Honor Student scouting as a rarity between SR and UR. Due to this, SR appearance rates will be increased in parts of scouting.

Changes to “Skill Level”

When you practice with a Skill Up support member or the same card, you’ll now get EXP points to level up your skill rather than just a skill level up all at once. Your skill level will increase once you gain enough skill EXP to take you to the next level. This also means you’ll be able to use Skill Up support members on any card, regardless of rarity!

※Skill Up support members must still be of the same attribute as the card you’re practicing them with for the Skill EXP to increase

※The amount of Skill EXP you gain isn’t affected by Super/Ultra Success when practicing 

New Center Skills

UR center skills, in addition to their current effects, will now give extra bonuses when you build your team using a certain unit, year group or set.

Partner and “Favorite Points”

“Favorite points” are also now being added. Favorite points is a mechanism that will be able to list the members that you use the most frequently and bond points in total. Favorite points will rise with your partner (girl on your home screen) and the girls in your team when playing a live.

Card Display Switching Function

A feature to switch the display of your card between their idolized and unidolized forms. You can play with them any way you like!

Increased Ease of Using Member List

Initial number of Member List spaces is being changed from 90 to 120. Due to this, the challenge where your reward is extra member spaces is being abolished. 

※After the update, the reward for the challenges where you would previously get member spaces will be love gems. Players who have already completed these challenges will receive the love gems post-maintenance.

The maximum number of member list spaces can now be increased to 1000. When buying extra member list spaces, players will now gain 4 instead of 3 per love gem.

※Customers who previously bought member spaces with love gems will be given 1 more per each gem spent (with the maintenance) to make up for this change.

Support members will also be moved to a new page and will no longer take up a member list space. (See image below!) New filtering options will also be added to the member list.

Above: Hot leaks. Check out the pretty Riko SR in the top left corner there is no escape from school uniforms and new cool R set! Possible OP outfits….?


EXPERT songs will now be moved permanently to the “Hits” section. With this, EX songs will no longer only be available for limited times. You can play them whenever you’d like!

※All the goals you’ve cleared up until the update (S score, FC, ect) will be carried over when EX is added to hits.

For the new difficulty “MASTER”, four songs will be added monthly. They’ll start with µ’s songs. Have fun!

µ’s and Aqours

You can switch between µ’s and Aqours music by switching between “µ’s Mode” and “Aqours Mode”. You can play with any team in either mode, but Aqours members will help you score higher in Aqours mode and µ’s members will help you score higher in µ’s mode.

Aqours music will not be unlocked by rank.

Random Selection

Random select are songs from the Hit section added to the B-side section. These songs are automatically chosen, and change daily between smile, pure, cool, μ’s, or Aqours song. (From /u/euni_2319 on Reddit)

Random Selection songs will fill up your Reward Box gauge faster than normal songs.
