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!
@Loakum: I'm the king of rock, there is none higher** Please be careful next time you quote famous Hip Hop rhymes, you're welcome. (46 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I like the fact that they're all being held back (the hand coming out of the water)...probably why all but Drake on that boat have been in average games (1 Hour ago)
Wolfenstein The Old Blood is so damn good. Very funny if you listen to all the conversations. The literal grammar Nazi was great. (1 Hour ago)
*looks both ways* I'm the King of Rock, there is no HIRE! Sucker MCs should call me SIRE! To burn my kingdom, you must use FIRE! I won't stop rocking till I RETIRE! *strikes a b-boy stance* (6 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Thought exactly the same thing. (8 Hours ago)
@Phaethon360: Didn't know that, thanks for the info! The painting did really look like something from a PlayStation fan. Now it makes perfect sense why. (8 Hours ago)
Isn't that Lara Croft in the front of the boat? I thought she had jumped ship :D (8 Hours ago)
