There will also be a new game mode called “Donda Quest,” which follows a fantasy-esque story and fuses the rhythm game with RPG-like battles. The player controls Don-chan, who was sucked into a mysterious book and together with the heroine Maple (voiced by Ari Ozawa) must work to defeat an ancient dragon known as “Revolution.”
