The trailer for the latest patch for Pump it Up XX was just unveiled, with the patch slated to be released on April 8, 2021!

Original Tunes
A.V. - Night Duty
HyuN v.s. lixound - Harmagedon

World Music
ginkiha - Paved Garden
Hommarju - Pop Sequence
t+pazolite, ginkiha, & Hommarju - Crossing Delta
t+pazolite - Slapstick Parfait

Notes
-"Night Duty" was originally featured in Pump it Up Fiesta EX and Fiesta 2 as a mission exclusive. Retaining its ID, it appears in the Fiesta-Fiesta 2 category and, while the song has a new titlecard, it didn't receive a new BGA, going with the current generic clip instead.
-The 4 World Music songs are from a collaborative EP, Crossing Delta, and they have been featured in other rhythm games including Seven's Code and OverRapid, the latter of which was also the source of several songs added to Pump it Up's Mobile Edition.
-Harmagedon was the winner of the 3rd Content Creation contest for the song division, and was previously earmarked for XX (with a different titlecard) in the Mobile Edition. Owing to its appearance in the trailer at the end, Repentance by Abel is earmarked to be added in the next patch.
-This month's reveal, due to its overlapping with April Fools Day, did a double-bait-and-switch. First, the teaser in March indicated a surprise song, and some players remembered that the April Fools of last year, "revealing" 1948, gave it a release of April 2021. Then, the trailer that dropped on April 1 (in Korea's timezone) revealed that it was instead Moon Light Dance -FULL SONG-, a longstanding running gag from visual artist Ferdinant Lyrebird...and then, the trailer that dropped on April 2 (again, Korea's timezone) revealed the actual final song: Crossing Delta, the title track of the EP from which most of this patch's content originates.
-Crossing Delta must be unlocked, with a channel dedicated to the other EP tracks being introduced with this patch.

I guess Moonlight Dance Full is the April Fools joke.

Yeah, the only thing is I'm not sure what *layer* of April Fools joke it is. There are basically 3 ways I could see it going:

-Last year's April Fools joke, Slam's "1948", listed its release as April 2021. The teaser hiding the last song was a hint that it was going to be real after all, and the April Fool's joke is that it wasn't, instead being Ferdinant's running gag choice. Either that's the payoff of the joke or...

-...after April 1st, they'll reveal that it either isn't happening or is happening in addition to "1948". If this is the case, then it'll likely be the former specifically since no chart preview was shown for "Moon Light Dance -Full Song-".

-Alternatively, both of these are entirely jokes and this patch only has 5 songs. This would be the sucky situation.

This happened.

Crossing Delta was it.

I've amended my post to explain the whole thing, though I suppose we'll have to wait for the patch's release to front-page it once we can confirm the channels for literally 2/3 of the content.
