This one’s a bit old now plus I had a few people tag me on Facebook about this so yeah, I’ll write it up! I’m a fan of the J-Pop x Metal trio, BABYMETAL. If you’ve been living under a rock and never heard of them, here’s a clip of a recent hit, KARATE.
Anyways, their popularity is soaring by the day as they’ve been steadily increasing their live performances and doing shows all over Europe, Asia and the US. The latest platform they’re making an appearance on is Nintendo’s build it yourself platform game, Super Mario Maker for the Wii U…here’s a clip of a wickedly difficult level with a Japanese gamer streaming his attempt to beat it and his rapturous reaction when he does beat it.
Here’s a promo clip for the joint collaboration as well.
So basically when you complete the Metal Resistance level (also the name of their latest album), you unlock a character that’s actually a montage character of all three members, Su-metal, Yuimetal, and Moametal. On top of that, the girls have also recorded sound sample for the game so you’ll hear them exclaim “Yosha!” (“We did it!”) when you beat a level, “We are Babymetal” when they show themselves and “Tobe!” (“Jump!”) as you jump over in-game obstacles.
This recently uploaded level is available worldwide so anyone can join in the BABYMETAL fun!
