A month has passed since the 5th stage play adaptation of popular browser and mobile game “Touken Ranbu –Online–“ by DMM GAMES and Nitroplus – Hiden: Yuinome no Hototogisu (Tragedy of the Greyheaded Cuckoo) ended its production run, yet popularity and hype of the stage franchise still hold strong, because according to Stage Natalie, they have just announced their latest collaboration project – this time round with Tower Records Cafe!
The Hiden: Yuinome no Hototogisu Tower Records Cafe will operate concurrently from 4 September 2018 to 4 November 2018 at four selected Tower Records Cafe across Japan:
- Tower Records Cafe Sapporo Pivot branch in Hokkaido
- Tower Records Cafe Shibuya branch in Tokyo
- Tower Records Cafe Omotesando branch in Tokyo
- Tower Records Cafe Umeda NU Chayamachi branch in Osaka
During the two-months-long collaboration period, fans may expect to be enchanted by a series of specially-crafted food, desserts and drinks menu – their creation all based off images of the 12 ‘Touken Danshi‘ (i.e. sword warrior) characters in the stage play’s cast. There will also be an array of special merchandise that can be purchased as memorabilia of having visited the collaboration cafe on sales at all participating branches.
The collaboration menu will be rolled out in two separate phases – Phase 1 from 4 September 2018 ~ 4 October 2018; and Phase 2 from 5 October 2018 ~ 4 November 2018. Let’s take a look at the menu lined-up for the first phase starting next week!
