Bushiroad President, Takaaki Kidani stated on his twitter that ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! existed in a different world from the current world of BanG Dream!. Therefore they will not interact with each other and he wanted to keep it that way. He himself stated that he didn’t want any girls from BanG Dream! interacted with any other men aside from the one that already existed in BanG Dream! Universe.

So, will Argonavis be alone in their own game? Of course not! They will be accompanied by the just announced two other boy band. Gyroaxia and Fantome Iris!
Let’s take a short look at these 2 new bands entering ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! AASide
From its appearance and clothing, the band looks to be playing a rock genre, just like Afterglow from BanG Dream! The band helmed by Vocal Asahi Nayuta (CV: Ogasawara Jin) but the other members Character Voice has not been announced. The other band members are :
Guitar Satozuka Kenta (CV: ???)
Guitar Misono Reon (CV: ???)
Bass Akebono Ryou (CV: ???)
Drum Sakaigawa Miyuki (CV: ???)
With this dark appearance and gothic look, its looks so much alike Roselia from BanG Dream! The genre they’ll be playing probably would be not far from Roselia genre.
Unlike Gyroaxis, Fantome Iris already announced all it’s members character voice. The band will be commandered by Vocal Felix Louis-Claude Mont d’or (CV: Arthur Conant Lounsbery). The other band members are :
Guitar LIGHT / Kurokawa Tomoru (CV: Masaya Wada)
Guitar ZACK / Suzaki Jun (CV: Fukuyama Jun)
Bass HARU / Mitsurugi Koharu (CV: Yonaga Tsubasa)
Drum D / Kusunoki Daimon (CV: Ayukawa Taiyo)
There are some questions arise from this announcement of the game, how will the monetization in this game works? Would it be worth to spend some Japan iTunes Gift Card? The game will launch on mid 2020 so stay tune for more info about ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream!
