Precure 5 game machine upgrade

It looks like the Yes! Precure 5 game machine has been upgraded in conjunction with the new season. It still looks like The IdolM@STER with magical girls.

I actually have no complaints, other than the unfitting genre. If it was just Urara's adventures singing and dancing, sure, go for it, since she's an idol. This is just a little odd, though. With this game machine, Precure seems to think it's Pichi Pichi Pitch. Komachi's wardrobe is also a little odd, but it was like that in the show, too. You just can't do much with green these days.

Precure fans will also be elated to see the very end of the video, introducing a few new characters. Of course, the marketable new Kurumi/Milky Rose has jumped in, but the other two I'll leave for you to watch the video and see. I personally started squeeing, but that's just because I'm obsessed with magical girls. Why couldn't I have become one when I was younger? But alas, now I'm legal and therefore over the hill when it comes to these sorts of things.

(Too bad Toei has all but disowned Splash Star, but I'm not going to put a damper on such a great day.)
