Virtua Ongaku 8 Deluxe next week! The rest of the lineup revealed!

Virtua Ongaku 8 Deluxe

Saturday, March 27th on twitch.tv/ongakuoverdrive

Here we go! Virtua Ongaku 8 Delxue will live on our Twitch on March 27th, starting at 7:00pm EST (4:00pm PST). Last week, we announced Creative Mind Frame, dj-Jo, and NOIR GRIME. But that’s not all! Here is the rest of what will be an amazing night.



Classic cartoons, video games, movies, and anime, nothing is off limits for the musical stylings of Bitforce. These 8-bit warriors don light-up armor to use their music to go to war with a multiverse of villains, both well-known and original. Join the fight to defend Earth from the evil forces of the multiverse. Lend them your voice! Lend them your strength! Join the Bitforce! (Bandcamp | Spotify)

The Arkadian

The Arkadian is a hard rock/heavy metal project that writes original material about video games while also covering video game music classics. Founded by singer/guitarist Jon O’Neal, The Arkadian continues to put on a unique VGM rock spectacle and is celebrating its 5th anniversary later this year. Get ready to party! (Bandcamp | Spotify)

Prize Raffle! Win stuff, help acts.

Here are raffle prizes for Virtua Ongaku 8 Deluxe next week! Albums featuring music from each act, gifted by us through bandcamp. Also the MyNintendo set of limited edition posters for Super Mario 3D All Stars.

There might also be a StellarNan craft if it can be finished in time. Raffle entries will be done through our Streamlabs account during the show. It will be $5 per raffle entry. Winners will be drawn at the end of the show. Money raised from the raffle will be used to pay the performers!
