Well, there it is, this strange game that could only have ever been produced in Japan. First released in the still striving arcades, and now parted to the 360, iDOLM@STER is part mini-games, part conversations with multiple choices. It's a really weird mix, but it's certainly working well enough to warrant this port in Japan.
This first video shows the first 15 minutes of the game, with some mini-games, some communication "lessons" and the important choosing of the girl's clothes. The second part will be online tomorrow, with the debut single and the first audition and TV coverage. Update: Second part online, with a casting (good luck understanding what's going on!) and a rather terrible first TV!

@SplitTongue: dynablaster was officially licensed as far as i know. ubisoft published, developed by german software house Actionamics. Music by old-time scener Eike "Romeo Knight" Steffen. (1 Hour ago)
Like Giana Sisters. Or was this officially authorised by NEC ? (2 Hours ago)
Uhm... maybe ? Didn't know until now, but if i had to guess i'd say in order to avoid being sued by NEC because Amiga devs didnt give a shit about IP's ? (2 Hours ago)
@SplitTongue: The name Dynablaster is ofc from the european Amiga/Atari port of the PC Engine Bomberman (4 Hours ago)
