Bandai Namco will host a “Starlit Report” live stream for The Idolmaster: Starlit Season on October 6 at 20:00 JST where it will share the latest information on the new The Idolmaster title, the company announced. You will be able to watch it on YouTube and Niconico.

The live stream will feature The Idolmaster series general producer Youzou Sakagami, The Idolmaster: Starlit Season producer Hayato Kutaragi, Asami Shimoda (Ami Futami and Mami Futami voice actor), and other cast members to be announced.
Was meant to post it here when the news hit, but forgot. Still decided to make the thread now to remind me to update it when the stream happens.
Hopefully they'll announce new characters and a western release, of course, because the Million Live representation is weak so far (just the poster trio).

Is this the first Idolmaster game on PC?

Is this purely VN? They're showing some dialogues and people on the panel were enthusiastly clapping lol.

Yes, unless you count the browser games.

No, it's mostly a light management game, with dialogues sprinkled in. There's also the lives and the training/lessons, which are minigames.



So yeah, game itself is looking good. But personally, I'm just not thrilled about the new batch of characters...

This thread leads me to check if the original idolmaster is BC on Xbox one / series X. It's a shame that it is not compatible. I wonder if my old Xbox 360 Slim still works...

Actually thinking about that and discussing it with other people I'm even more disappointed about the roster additions.
I was only thinking about whether I like them or not, but someone mentioned
The most exciting thing was seeing Anzu and Tenka in a setting where they have to be more independent
Except fuck that, here are their crutches instead
and I can't disagree. :-/

While I expect it to be completely region locked to Asia, I still hope it's not and it comes because it looks absolutely fantastic :(
