Idolmaster new Famitsu scans

This weeks Famitsu was quite busy with new XBox360 articles, but for now here's just another look at Namco's forthcoming 'J-idol manager' simulation called The Idolmaster, and the new girl character that was introduced in this issue. For all four people that care...me included !

My daughters would probably like this game if it wasn't to hard to play

Umm..yeah, it looks okay I guess. What exactly is the premise of this game?

i dunno about the game itself but.... Next-gen Cell Shading FTW!

I hope someone picks this up for publishing outside Japan.

The Cell shading isn't anything special.

Go check Rogue Galaxy out and this looks pretty crappy in comparison.

Nice, looks ok to me, I dunno much about this game, but I assume the title sums it up.

Cel-shading in Rogue Galaxy is something else, huh? Considering it's on an older platform as PS2.

But this game's graphics look great as well. Most likely it'll never get released outside Japan, tho... this kinda games as love sims never do.

That's what I call good cel-shading O_O

how big is this famitsu magazine? it says pages 228 & 229!!! :|
Commented on 2006-09-14 01:59:03
It's huge. It's like THE dream gaming mag. That's why it's so popular and used as reference all around the world.

In Japan, even comic weekly books are huge... big as phone directories.

cel shading looks great on it, shame it's one of those horrid awful anime type games. But well shows how good cel shading can look on a 360

The cel shading in that game looks only good in the cutscenes.

The name of the new character is Mai Miki

Considering X360 is -at least- 10 times more powerful than PS2, yeah, Rogue Galaxy fares really well.

But the Cel-Shading in this animesque game looks great. You can barely tell it's polygons.

Is that all 3D?! O.o

I thought those characters were just bitmaps!
Wanna see it in motion
Commented on 2006-09-14 16:43:57
considering the first entire page is a chick sitting their talking... i stand to wonder

is this an anime porn game?

or

some form of mental treatment for men to deal with women and communication?

i just still dont get exactly what the game is about or what kind of game its going to be, except that its cell shaded which i must say looks great... loooks like a anime magazine

It's an Idol manager game (Pop star manager). Says so in the news. It's the usual sim kinda game that gets released only in Japan

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (2 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (5 Hours ago)
