63-year-old enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi, known for “last boss” level stage costumes, donned what she dubbed her most embarrassing outfit yet to promote the Gothic wa Mahō Otome (The Magical Maiden is Gothic) mobile shooting game. The next stage of the collaboration started on Friday with Kobayashi’s in-game version taking on players.
The collaboration is giving players who log in between March 18 and April 4 a five-star Sachiko Kobayashi. Sachiko is appearing as both an in-game enemy and ally. She is divided into light and dark characters in the game. The event features music performed by the singer as well.
The singer performed in the multi-platform video game Phantasy Star Online 2 last year. She sang one of the original ending theme songs for Pokémon.
