Daigasso! Band Brothers P

Earlier this week, Nintendo announced that one of the online services from Daigasso! Band Brothers P (only available in Japan) would be terminated next month, on March 21st to be precise. The service is the one that allows users to submit musical scores, to be distributed to other players via the internet (provided they pass through the screening process).

Scores submitted by March 21st that pass the screening process will then be distributed by March 31st. Unfortunately, if your musical score is rejected, there will be no way to resubmit it anymore.

Nintendo specifies that all other onlien services for Daigasso! Band Brothers P would keep on working even after March 21st, and only the musical score service is being discontinued.

Also, Nintendo posted the following 4-koma panel, where Barbara explains that she will press that scary-looking button if she doesn’t get a Switch… is that teasing for a possible Nintendo Switch version of the game? Since Nintendo is putting a lot of emphasis on local multiplayer capabilities of the console, Daigasso! Band Brothers is, in fact, a perfect fit for it!
