THE iDOLM@STER first Famitsu scans

Another port of popular arcade game is coming to Xbox360 In Japan. This time it's Namco's japanese idol/singer simulation called THE iDOLM@STER. This title will probably make few more japanese gamers to go and purchase XB360 me thinks. As always Famitsu Weekly is first to bring the news.
Update : Added 9 direct feed images.

I like the cel shaded graphics, the girls are all cute too. How exactly does this game play, is it a rhythm game?

iDOLM@STER have some amount of fanatics, they gonna be instant sold.
I believe namco wouldn't sell this title for other regions.

I think there are rhythm mini-games in there, but game is primarly simulation where player acts like a manager and is helping the girl he picked becoming successful idol (or pop star, whatever).

LOL roxwell... We are so much alike I play elder scrolls oblivion naked too.

Wait a minute..

This is the type of japanese support I like to see. The type of support is similar to that of which a sony console would receive. (With the exception of our own REAL final fantasy game)

OMG! WILL PRE-ORDER! But really, that’s the best anime cell shading I have ever seen.

Oh japan as much as i enjoy being there i just cant help to get seriously creeped out by their obsession with prepubescent girls, if a game featuring scantly clad 12 year olds is what it takes for the 360 to hit it big in japan then so be it, now if you excuse me i feel dirty and i need a shower.

If they bring it to the U.S. I suggest a name change to "Pedo-Paradise".

Wow, never thought I'd see one of the Japanese sim games come to an Xbox console... This is good news for us tho, as it means more companies are moving to support our little white box.

About the game

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (1 minute ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @AndreasZ94: too low? this is the 2007 where a fraction of AAA games had a facial mo-cap rig. The main characters are the low bar of what we expect of decent facial expressions and lip-sync in this (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus dreamcast faces are like 2 or 3 generations ahead. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: it looks like they took a dreamcast game, made all the assets look pretty. And that's it...i'm ok with this. Lol. (6 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Im not expecting top of the line stuff because the budget is very low by AAA standards but they need to do better when it comes to facial expressions (7 Hours ago)
