New Subgroup [Sukeban Girls]

Aaaaand yet another subgroup has has been formed!!  AKB48's Oshima Yuko and Kasai Tomomi along with SKE48's Matsui Rena have formed a special unit called Sukeban Girls in order to promote a new pachinko game.

They will be performing two original songs (and PVs) to be used in Kyoraku Sangyo's new game, "Surprise Pachinko - Sukeban Detective."  The first song, Tsupparu Riyuu, will be used during normal gameplay, and another song, Tomo yo Yoake ni Machiawaseyou, will be played only when the player reaches a special part of the game.

There may be related prizes that can be exchanged for in pachinko parlors featuring this game, and there are plans to release special Sukeban Girls goods in the future.

It is still unknown whether any of the songs or PVs will be released.

I'm having trouble keeping up with all the new subgroups sprouting up, but if there was a way to get me to play pachinko... this would be it!
