Idolmaster new Famitsu scans

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
